The Times 2021 Baseball Player of the Year: Newark’s Dalton Reibel topped the charts at the plate, on the mound

Reibel led Norsemen to the promised land his senior season

“The whole season I was just trying to have as much fun as I could, especially it being my senior year, and I did. It’s fun to win, and we did a pretty good share of that this spring.”

I worked for 25 years as a CNC operator and in 2005 answered an ad in The Times for a freelance sports writer position. I became a full-time sports writer/columnist for The Times in February of 2016. I enjoy researching high school athletics history, and in my spare time like to do the same, but also play video games and watch Twitch.
