NHP All-Stars to face international competition in Oregon

They make it look easy. Indeed, the New Hyde Park All-Stars, comprised of seventh and eighth-grade girls from Stewart Manor and New Hyde Park, clinched the East Region Little League Championship on July 27, wrapping up a tournament run that included four shutouts by the All-Stars.

The team became the state champs on July 16, defeating Half Hollow Hills 10-2. Asked whether he was confident the team would win the state championship, coach Tom Donnelly replied, “We lost in the semifinals at the N.Y. State tournament last year as 11-year-olds playing in the 12-year-old division and we won the N.Y. State tournament as 10-years-olds, so we were confident but we knew Staten Island and Half Hollow Hills would be very tough games.”

Chico’s Bail Bond Cubs Vs. Modell’s Sporting Goods Braves

The Cubs had a tall order today coming up against a hot Braves team. Leading the Braves offensive charge was Kenny Hirschfeld and Ryan Wasserman with four hits each. Kenny had another big double and Ryan had four RBIs. Alan Sikora, Duhan Lee, Edward Mauceri and Christopher Chin had three hits each. Also contributing to the offensive was Christian Sikiric, Michael Paladino with two hits each and Anthony Levia with one hit. The defense was led by Ryan, Kenny and Christopher turning one great play after another. Ryan turned an unassisted double play and Michael turned in the play of the game with tremendous play at shortstop for the putout. The Braves are really starting to break stride and come together as the season comes to a close. The Cubs also played a very good game.
