It was 34 years in the making, and Monday, Bishop Blanchet baseball coach George Monica won his 500th game when the Braves beat Ingraham 7-1.

Monica is the second active coach to hit the milestone, and the 4th all-time.

Connor Celli and Nick Wass drove in three runs each, and pitcher Jack Cunningham recorded the win.

A number of former players were on hand for the game, and it's all the players who Monica gave the credit.
