BH-BL High School’s Strat-O-Matic Club wins national t-shirt design contest
One of BH-BL’s newest after-school clubs, the Strat-O-Matic Baseball Club, recently won the Strat-O-Matic organization’s national t-shirt design contest!
HS Special Education teacher Jeff DiPaola and founding club members–students Gabe LoBaido, Jack Kislowski, and Adam Salorio–were instrumental in getting this retro club up and running. But, what exactly is Strat-O-Matic? It’s a club designed around a baseball card game that relies on a realistic simulation of statistically accurate baseball. It has been around since 1961 and some people refer to it as the original fantasy sports game. Since the club’s inception at BH-BL a couple of years ago, DiPaola has doubled membership (both students and faculty), gotten involved in major fundraisers at the school, and now has won the national t-shirt contest for the team’s design.
Congratulations to DiPaola and all of the Strat-O-Matic Club members. Check out the article in the Strat-O-Matic’s national newsletter to learn more and view the winning t-shirt design.
