OTHG Championship

Thursday, 24 October 2013 00:00

The 2013 OTHG Championship game was played Friday 10/11/13 at Allen Park. It was Paradox Café managed by Don Carlin  vs. Autocraft managed by Denny Oehl.  Paradox, coming from the losers bracket, needed to win 2 games.  

Autocraft only needed one win as they were undefeated in the tournament. It was a cool crisp night with the wind blowing in so the long ball was really not an option. Paradox took the field and set the tone right away playing 5 infielders and only 3 outfielders hoping to neutralize Autocraft’s strong offense,  averaging over 30 runs per game in the tournament.

Long Island Challengers Step Up To The Plate

Written by Farmingdale Observer Staff, Thursday, 10 October 2013 00:00

Baseball is America’s pastime and should be enjoyed by everyone, including children with special needs.

That has been the thrust of Long Island Challenger Baseball since it was established in 1989 -- to give physically and mentally challenged children from across the island the opportunity to play baseball in an environment structed to their abilities.

And those abilities will be on display at the Long Island Challenger Baseball Jamboree at John J. Burns Park on Merrick Road in Massapequa, Sunday Oct. 13. The special event will bring together challenger teams from through the island and outside of the state.

Charles Water Karate focuses on teaching its students how to not only show confidence in the studio but in the real world as well. The owner is Grandmaster Charles Water who runs the studio with his wife Cheryl Water. Their studio is located in Williston Park on Hillside Avenue.


The studio’s style of martial arts is called the Black Belt Success System. “We want to teach our students how to think like a black belt outside of the studio,” said Mr. Water.


Back in the ‘70s, Mr. Water used to run a women’s high fashion clothing store. He started taking martial arts classes and fell in love with it. He decided to follow his passion and open up a karate studio in 1986.
