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.
The St. Kilian Saints of Farmimgdale PAL recently presented the 2011 award winners with plaques. The 14U team, including: Anthony Costantini (Most Improved Player), Mike Murphy (New Saint of the Year), Mike Anzalone (Gold Glove), and Vinny Nicolo (Cy Young); and Brett Davies (Coaches Award) of the high school team (back) each received their awards.
McCourt & Trudden (M&T) Funeral Home recently beat Moby Drugs 16-15. There were plenty of hitting stars for M&T, but none bigger than rookie Ben D’Ampris, the Over The Hill Gang Player of the Week. D’Ampris’ go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the ninth won the game, but the blast was bittersweet.
D’Ampris ruptured his Achilles heel on the swing and will miss the remainder of the season. M&T and the entire league wish him a speedy recovery.

The game marked Senior Day for Emalee Ciampo (Plainview), Gina Ciaravino (Levittown), Courtney Cook (Deer Park) and Krystin Shand (Massapequa Park). These four young ladies have led the Rams to a program record 12 wins in 2012, claiming the top-seed for next week’s Skyline Playoffs. Farmingdale State hosted #4 Kean in the semifinal round on April 25.
Make it two in a row for Changing Times (CT) Pub, two wins and two “Player of the Week” awards. Rookie Mike Corda was the “stand-out” this week for CT making several spectacular catches in left field on the 90-feet. One catch was an amazing grab as he was running full speed and heading down the hill. It was a big momentum change as the bases were loaded with two outs. Corda also added two hits including a two-run bomb to left center in the late innings.
Farmingdale’s Over The Hill Gang (OTHG) softball league opened its 37th season on April 13 at Allen Park. This year the league is showcasing its fantastic talent with a new Player of the Week award. This week’s winner, the first ever OTHG Player of the Week, is Changing Times outfielder Dave Thornburn. Thornburn led off the game with an opposite field homer and kept on hitting all night long. He went 5-5, hitting for a cycle. In left-center Thornburn was equally impressive, with several exceptional catches, including a “layout” grab that helped beat down a McCourt and Trudden Funeral Home rally late in the game. Congratulations to Thornburn and to the Player of the Week runner-up, Lockie and Nowachek’s Butch Flecker. Flecker went 4-4 that included a monster, fence-clearing homer.
