The U10 and U11 squads of the Farmingdale Devils Travel Baseball Organization participated in last weekends Taylor Ryan Wood Bat Baseball Tournament in Islip. The tournament, named after a local teenager who is battling a life threatening illness attracted the best teams from Long Island . All funds collected went to help Taylors family off set the cost of her medical treatment. The tournament featured a return to 20th century baseball with wood bats. The sound of baseballs pinging off high tech metal was replaced with the comforting sound of ash and maple bats cracking when struck at just the right place.
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.

New runners are being schooled in nutrition, hydration, proper form, footwear, apparel, and injury prevention, and are eased into a gradual training regimen that will prepare them to run the

On May 23, the T-Storms were on the North Shore, yet there were a hurricane of runs as Changing Times Pub improved to 4-1 beating a very tough and gritty La Corte Family Auto 26-9. The first few innings started as a pitcher’s duel with very few runs scored. But the 6th inning is when Hurricane CT began to take shape by scoring 8 runs led by Dave Thorburn (6-6) 2 RBI’s and Jimmy Cullen (4-5) with 5 runs scored. But that’s wasn’t all as the eye of the storm came through with another 4 runs in the 7th and another 8 runs in the 8th. Thanks to Joe Stephan (4-4) and our SS Larry Ortolani making diving stops and going (4-6) 3 RBI’s. But the game ball goes to Dave Chametzky for coming out of the bullpen and going (3-5) 1 RBI and holding a very offensive team like La Corte to only 9 runs.
