Over The Hill Gang Report

The Over the Hill Gang softball league opened its 39th season Friday, April 11 with six games at Allen Park.  Bar-Boy began with an impressive 25-8 win over Bethpage Pharmacy. After scoring one run in the first, BB exploded for 7 runs in the 2nd inning and never looked back.    For the night, Ken Kuzman went 4 for 6 with 2 RBIs, Steve Kirk went 4 for 5 with 2 RBIs, Frank Badalmenti went 5 for 6 with 5 RBIs and a homer, pitcher John Czarnecki went 5 for 6 with 5 RBIs, rookie Jason Cinnelli went 3 for 6 with a homer and manager Ken Kohlmann went 3 for 4 with 2 RBIs. 

 

On a night that Zwanger-Pesiri’s defense was not so great, 3rd baseman Sean O’Flynn flashed some leather when it was needed the most.    Sean’s diving catch ended the game with the tying run on 3rd base lifting ZP to an 18-17 win over McCourt & Trudden Funeral Home.    Marc Fischer got the win with steady pitching and a big bat.   He had 4 hits and 3 RBI’s to lead a 26 hit attack.    ZP scored in 7 of 8 innings with everyone contributing.  Jerry Mazza, John Hernandez and Marty Dunn had three hits.   Steve Lenci,

John DeFalco, Tyrone Clark, Anthony Nicolich and Pete Mendelson had two hits each. ZP sends a shout out to long-time teammate Brian Tinney who is taking a year off after a 20 year run.   Opening Day was not the same without Brian.     

 

Changing Times Pub opened the season with a thrilling come from behind victory over Paradox Café. CT’s defense and offense thawed out like this year’s snow with an icy cold start while Paradox scored 4 runs in the top of the first. The 4th inning is when the ice began to melt and the magic began to happen for CT with 4 runs scored. Dan Davies (4-4) 3 RBIs broke the ice with a line drive RBI single, followed by Mike Corda (2-3) 5 RBIs who hit a 3 run blast.  From there, CT chipped away at Paradox’s lead with timely hitting by Stu Koch (2-2),  Joe Stephan (3-4) and solid pitching by Darren Azar (2-4) with a key 2 RBI triple.  After CT took the lead they never looked back and closed out the game.

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

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.
