Maple Family Centers owners John, Peter and Joe LaSpina, along with their partners Bill DeCicco, Sr. and Bill DeCicco, Jr., joined forces to host the 3rd Annual “Bowlers to Veterans” Tournament on May 20 at Farmingdale Lanes. The event was the bowling center’s biggest yet, with 200 people participating.
The event benefits Bowlers to Veterans Link (BVL), founded in 1942. Since then, bowling centers and bowlers have helped raised nearly $30 million dollars which help provide recreational and therapeutic programs and services to boost morale and brighten spirits.
Okay softball fans, we know everyone is anxious to see who will be this week’s Over the Hill Gang Player of the Week. The wait is over; it’s Bar-Boy’s Frank Badalamenti. He had an absolutely terrific game at the plate Friday night. He went four-for-five with two home runs, before driving in seven runs and scoring five times as Bar-Boy beat Autocraft, 20-13.
More game highlights will follow, but first congratulations go out to BK Sweeney’s. Friday marked the midway point in the Over the Hill Gang season and BK is the only undefeated team in the league. BK holds a commanding three-game lead over Singleton’s in the American League (AL) and is rolling past everyone who comes their way.
St. Kilian CYO will be holding registration for girls and boys basketball for the upcoming season on Wednesday, June 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the gym lobby at St. Kilian’s on Cherry Street.
Pitcher Ben Greco has also been outstanding keeping the M&T batters off stride. Other top players were Thomas Joseph who was 3-for-3 with two RBIs; rookie Pete Hajko who had an over-the-fence two-run home run and four RBIs; and rookie Rich Apollo who hit a tremendous home run and had three RBIs. This was a complete team effort.
For the first time ever, The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) is making $10 grandstand general admission tickets to the Belmont Stakes available through Ticketmaster.
With I’ll Have Another set to pursue a sweep of the Triple Crown following his victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, a big crowd is expected for the 144th running of the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 9.
The St. Kilian CYO girls volleyball program recently finished off their seventh season. More than 100 local girls participated on 10 teams and six of those teams qualified for the post season. The girls were all coached by adult volunteers who gave up their time to teach and improve the skills of the girls on their teams.
The 10-year-old Devils baseball team of Farmingdale recently defeated the LSW Astros, 6-0. Robert Manetta accomplished an amazing feat by pitching a perfect game against the Astros, striking out 17 of the 18 batters.
Zwanger Pesiri Radiology’s (ZP) rookie Sean O’Flynn is the latest winner of the Over the Hill Gang “Player of the Week” honors. O’Flynn had four hits, including a bomb to left field that cleared the bases. He had five RBIs for the night. In the field, he made all the plays at third base in ZP’s 26-18 win over Paradox Cafe.
ZP needed O’Flynn’s bat and plenty of others in a back and forth slugfest. The team finally found some breathing room with a six run in the 7th inning. John Hernandez, Marc Fischer, Russ Graham, Bino Reverberi, Rich D’Amico and O’Flynn all slammed consecutive two-out, RBI hits.

Congratulations to Zwanger Pesiri Radiology (ZP) shortstop Russ Graham. He is the Over the Hill Gang “Player of the Week.” Graham’s fantastic defense and timely hitting were the driving force behind a big ZP win. Graham made several over-the-shoulder grabs; one saved two runs in a very tight game. He also turned a number of double plays with second baseman Sean O’Flynn. At the plate, he had three hits including a clutch two-out RBI single and a long double.
ZP beat Changing Times Pub 9-4. Pitcher Brian Tinney was superb, holding CT to only four runs after the hot hitting team scored 58 runs in its first three games. Tinney had plenty of defensive help, especially from middle infielders Graham and rookie O’Flynn. The pair combined for three double plays to end potential CT rallies. The outfield was also solid. Vinny Foppiano, Bino Reverberi and Tom Dittmeier roamed far and wide to track down CT drives.
