The clash between Autocraft and Lockie & Nowachek Family Chiropractors, both courting 1-2 records, was one of those old time barnburners with Autocraft coming out on top 17-15. There were some great moments for Autocraft that overcame the bad. The topper was a home run blast by Donnie Simone that cleared the fence behind the trees in left center, something rarely seen. Mike Ferreti kept L&N honest by pitching a strong game giving little or nothing away. Veteran Dave Rubino looked like his early days having a multi-hit night including one off the pole in deep left center. Aldo Balducci, Joe “Mr. Steady” Lutz, Dennis “Ace” Oehl, and Brian Landy all had big nights at the plate, as did Big Mike Mormino. Frankie “Quatro cinco seis” promised his teammates a hit next game.
On Monday, May 9, led by Daler ace Alex Brosnan, the Dalers beat Massapequa 2-0. Backed by a strong pitching performance from Brosnan who gave up only two hits while striking out 13, the Dalers scored four runs in the fifth after consecutive hits by Matt Oppedisano and Richie Sullivan. With one out Nick Colasurdo and Rocky Santopadre also followed with back to back hits to plate two runs which was enough run support for Brosnan to throw a complete game.
The game between Singletons and Barco Construction started out as a pitching duel but ended up being a slugfest. After the third inning, the score was only 3-2 in favor of Barco, but as the fourth inning began the bats heated up and runs started accumulating.
Chalk up win number 1 for T-Ball and Joe T. Zwanger-Pesiri (ZP) Radiology beat BK Sweeney’s 21-13. The bats were smoking all night for ZP beginning with a 6-run first inning. RBI hits from Vinny Foppiano, John DeFalco, Marc Fischer, Tommy Dittmeier and Bino Reverberi made it 6-3, ZP. The game seesawed until the 6th when ZP pounded across five runs that put the game out of reach.

On Tuesday, several dozen OTHG players, past and present, formed an honor guard as Gioeli’s funeral procession drove past Allen Park one final time.
