Play Ball! Opening day started off with fireworks as the Diamondbacks’sixth-inning rally ended just short of a come from behind win. The starting pitchers: Cenzo Montoni, Garrett Roth, Thomas Rubinic, Anthony Steves, and Jackson Benjamin threw strikes and kept their team in the game. Marc Baronci, Jackson Benjamin and Cenzo Montoni set up the strike zone for their pitchers and played excellent defense behind the plate. Michael Campagnoulo, Brandon Colon, Mathew Merolla, Nicholas Rubinic, Mathew Rubinic, and Liam Nihan played heads up infield baseball and executed to keep the game close. With the game almost out of reach, Garrett Roth made a great catch in the fifth inning to end a scoring rally. The bats were cracking as Brandon Colon, Liam Nihan, Garrett Roth, Mathew Rubinic, and Nicholas Rubinic had hits to bring in three runs. The above led to the aforementioned sixth inning comeback. Down with a score of eight to three and an ACE on the mound for the Angels, Anthony Steves led off with a double. Cenzo Montoni brought home Anthony with a triple down the right field line. Matthew Merolla hit a double to straight away center as Cenzo scored. Marc Baronci had an infield hit, Jackson Benjamin walked and Michael Camagnoulo filled the bases with another infield hit. There were two outs with the tying run at second and the go ahead run at first. The Diamondbacks’ fans were on the edge of their seats as the Angels ACE was in trouble. The ACE won this battle but the Diamondbacks learned that the game is never over and to never give up!! What a opening day game.
It might have been a chilly opening day for the New Hyde Park Kiwanis Reds who started the season against the mighty Island Wide Medical Associates Rays, but the Reds were “red” hot on the field. Pitchers Chris Bruccoleri, Jordan Seidenberg and Elliot Weissman combined for 5 scoreless innings, which allowed for red hot bats to light up the evening with solid hitting from Michael Jacobs, Paarth and brother Prit Patel, while Dylan Karef ripped a double during the second inning. We also had solid fielding which kept runs off the board including a Willie Mays style catch by AJ Devito, and pure brilliance from Andrew Apazza, John Welch and Daniel Mattea at third, as well as a dart thrown by Matthew Baronci from third to home to get the runner at home.
