Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. announced that the New York State Senate recently passed a legislative resolution honoring former New York Mets pitcher John Franco. Franco was honored for his commitment to preserving Italian-American Heritage as part of the recent Italian-American Day Celebration at the state capitol.

“John Franco is the true embodiment of a proud Italian American,” said Senator Fuschillo, who co-sponsored the resolution. “I’ve followed his career since he started with the Mets and couldn’t be happier to honor this great man for his many accomplishments.

Congratulations to Autocraft’s Brian Landy. He’s the Over the Hill Gang’s Player of the Week for Friday, June 29. Landy went four-for-four with two home runs and two doubles producing seven RBIs while scoring four times. He also made a key defensive play in left field throwing out an McCourt & Trudden Funeral Home (M&T) runner at third base for an inning and rally ending out.

After a week’s rest due to stormy weather the well-rested Autocraft team returned to its old form besting M&T 24-to-5 in seven innings. M&T jumped out to an early four-run lead but Autocraft bats responded by outscoring them the rest of the game. Denny Oehl pitched a gem as he walked no batters struck out three and held the M&T team in check for most of the game. Autocraft played solid defense turning two double plays and Brian Landy assisted by throwing out a runner at third base.

Barco Construction is hot and so is Brett Moritz. Moritz is the Over the Hill Gang Player of the Week and Barco has won three straight games. He had a perfect four-for-four night, driving in four key runs as Barco beat Lockie & Nowachek Family Chiropractors (L&N) 15-11 to lift them into a first place tie with L&N in the National League.  

Barco scored runs in all but two innings to keep the pressure on L&N, scoring two runs in the first, second, fourth, sixth, and eighth innings with a four-spot in the fifth on Kevin Moloney’s big grand slam. At that point, Barco led 10-1 and it looked like it was going to be an easy win.
