Over The Hill Gang Softball Report

With manager Tom Ball attending a wedding in Iowa, it seemed like a tall order when Marc Fischer said, “win this one for T-Ball.” Zwanger Pesiri Radiology (ZP) was after all facing powerful B.K. Sweeney’s, the number one seed in the Over the Hill Gang playoffs. But on Friday night, it didn’t matter.  ZP fired out of the gates with 16 runs in the first two innings and then scored just enough to stay ahead in a big 22-15 win. Everyone contributed to this victory.

Pitcher Brian Tinney held a lineup that normally scores 20 plus runs a game to 15.   His defense cracked a few times, but made the plays when needed. John Hernandez was solid at shortstop and Fischer at first base made a key stop and throw to nail a runner at second base. In the outfield, Bino Reverberi tracked down a number of drives up against the fence that a lot of guys don’t get to.

Russ Graham and Sean O’Flynn led the offense with a pair of homers. Graham cleared the fence while Sean had to use his “wheels” after smashing one over the left fielders head. O’Flynn’s blast came at a critical time in the eighth inning, just when BK appeared to be inching back and getting some momentum. Ira Berger returned from an injury with a perfect 3-for-3 night.

Jerry Mazza, Hernandez, Graham, O’Flynn and Fischer also pounded three hits each. Vinny Foppiano, Tommy Dittmeier, Reverberi, Tinney and Anthony Nicolich rounded out the attack with two hits each. For the night ZP collected 31 hits and walked away with an impressive win over a very tough team.

News

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade.

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
