"After receiving his release from the Anaheim Angels last fall, Mark Lukasiewicz had a handful of offers to choose from over the winter. The Yankees called and asked if the Secaucus High School legend would be willing to sign on and pitch for them.... For now, he's back home in Jersey, hurling in front of family and friends. People from Secaucus are venturing out to Somerset County, to support their native son."
