Over The Hill Gang Softball Report: August 30, 2012

Written by Jerry Mazza Friday, 31 August 2012 00:00

Congratulations Tommy Dittmeier. The Zwanger Pesiri Radiology (ZP) outfielder is the newest Over the Hill Gang Player of the Week. Dittmeier slammed four hits, drove in four runs and scored three to lead ZP to a 21-9 win over McCourt & Trudden Funeral Home.

It was an all-around good night for ZP and winning pitcher Brian Tinney. The bats were alive and the defense was sharp. After 10 years of nailing runners, you would think outfielder Bino Reverberi’s arm would not be tested very often. Not true. He had three assists Friday, including a laser to home plate from deep in right center field.

Barclays Golf Tournament Tees Off At Bethpage Black

Written by Ronald Scaglia Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00
It’s about the length of two football fields, but for the world’s best golfers, it is 200 yards that can crush the dreams of winning a prestigious golf tournament, or propel a player into glory with an accurate tee shot and a well-executed putt. It’s the 17th hole of the Bethpage Black, where the Barclays Golf Tournament is being held this week.

The 17th hole is considered to be a signature hole of the course. During the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open Championships, which were held at Bethpage Black, a loud and enthusiastic crowd helped to put a New York stamp on those tournaments. Barclays tournament directors are hoping for that same excitement as players arrive at the challenging hole.

Congratulations to BK Sweeney’s first baseman Kevin Brosnan. He is the latest Over the Hill Gang Player of the Week. Brosnan blasted two homers and a double while driving in six runs during BK’s 22-7 win over Paradox Cafe. Paradox delivered Brosnan the ultimate compliment, intentionally walking him in the eighth inning.

The win lifts Sweeney’s record to a league-leading 13-1. Besides Brosnan, a long list of batters joined the hit parade. George Moerler with four RBIs; Mark Hemminger, Johnny Longo and Jim Hickey with three RBIs; Jim Felicia’s HR and three RBIs; and Byron Bodine, Jack DeBobes, George Cohan, Joey Girimonte and Mike Magro chipped in with two hits each. Outstanding pitching from Jim Hickey kept the hard-hitting Paradox team off stride for most the game.
