Over The Hill Gang Report

The weather and the lights finally cooperated as the Over the Hill Gang returned with a full slate of games Friday night at Allen Park.

 

The previous week Changing Times Pub was leading Paradox Café  10-3 when the rain came pouring down and forced a restart of the game.  Paradox’s Vinny Vega took advantage right from the start as he launched a grand slam to deep center field in the first inning.  Al Celeste added an RBI single for a 5-0 lead.  In the second inning, Gary Innis (3 Runs Scored), Brian Mulcahy (3 Runs Scored) and John “I’m on Base Again” Compitello (six runs scored) led the charge.  Mitch Maghakian hit his second triple of the night to knock in 2 while Lyle Nigro cleaned up the bases with an RBI single.  Some good fielding by

Lenny Balestrieri led to an unassisted double play at short in the 3rd inning to shut down a potential CT rally. A gem of a sliding catch was made in right center field in the sixth by Paradox’s Don Carlin that helped turn the game as CT had already posted 6 runs trying to get back into the fray.  Maghakian and Steve Finelli also teamed up to retire CT’s powerful clean up hitter as the play went 4-1 with Finelli hustling over to cover first on a bang-bang play. The last 3 innings belonged to Paradox as Carlin knocked in 4 RBIs with 3 singles.  Steve Finelli popped one over the fence for 3 more runs and Vega added his second home run of the night in center.  Finally Gary Innes and Wally Sefert set the table as Balestrieri launched a bomb to left field to end the game. Paradox won the game 30-12. 

 

Sal’s Place came out swinging against undefeated Singleton’s and walked away with a big 27-13 win. The middle of the batting order powered Sal’s with Brian Landy getting 3 hits and 4 RBIs. Chris Pic had a 4 hit night with a homer over the fence while Tom Vanasco had 4 hits including 2 triples knocking in 6 runs. Don Simone pitch a gem holding the strong Singletons offense in checkout for most of the night as he hit one off the scoreboard for one of 2 doubles he had while knocking in 4 runs. The  caboose Dave Rubino had 2 big hits one with 2 outs and the based loaded very clutch Davey Boy.  It’s was nice to play and hanfg with the boys after a few weeks off.

 

Bar-Boy beat  Bethpage Pharmacy 11 to 9 in a tight, well played game.  Bethpage came out strong early to take a 8-6 lead after 3 innings. The game was tied 9 to 9 into the 7th inning until  BB scored scored two to take the lead and held on for the win.   Frank Badalamenti had the big hit for BB a grand slam in the the 3rd. He went 2 for 3 5 RBIs, John Czarnecki went 3 for 4  with 2 RBIs, Jason Cinnelli went 2 for 4 with 1 RBI, Lino Raspanti went 3 for 4, Ken Kolhmann went 2 for 3, Tom Debona went 3 for 4 , Mike Frain went 2 for 4,  Joe Scotti went 2 for 4 and Bob Lies went 1 for 3 with 1 RBI. 

Zwanger Pesiri Radiology battled McCourt & Trudden Funeral Home and held on for a 18-14 win.   ZP trailed until the 4th inning when rookie Kevin McGinnis belted a long 3-run homer. In the 6th, the lead grew bigger.   Bino Reverberi, Pete Mendelson, Jerry Mazza, Richie D’Amico and John Hernandez all singled but the big blow was a Marc Fisher 3-run homer to cap a 6-run inning.    For the night, Hernandez and Mendelson led the way with 3 hits each. Fischer, Russ Graham, Tommy Dittmeier, Marty Dunn, Anthony Nicolich and Reverberi all had 2 hits to support Fischer on the mound.

Holidays Increase Daily Congestion 

While parking around LIRR train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town. 

 

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”

There is simply no better way for runners and their families to celebrate the Holiday Season than by being part of the fun at the Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Holiday 5 Kilometer Run, and on Saturday morning, Dec. 20, the Run will be celebrating its 27th anniversary edition at the John F.
