The Stutzman Funeral Home Dodgers played their second game against the Cardinals this week on a soggy Saturday morning and all had wet feet. But the weather didn’t dampen the spirit of these young ballplayers. After a round of instructional drills, the ever-optimistic Dodgers took to the field. Gia Campagnuolo and Myles Brown had a fantastic day and fielded the ball very well. Aedan Cotter and Thomas Slaski hit the ball extremely hard off of the tee. Michael Duda ran the bases quickly after hitting the ball solidly up the middle. Cooper Sang had a few good plays in his debut at first base and both Ethan Goldberg and Jeremy Chuck made impressive fielding assists to help the team. Nicholas Gregory fielded a groundball with ease and threw the ball to first base. Young Ryan Louie once again showed his potential to hit the ball hard each time at bat. The Dodger team had another great match with the Cardinals. The morning was just another step toward learning how to play good ball and the Dodger players sure made this step a giant one. All the players look forward to next week’s ballgame.
Practice makes perfect and the Dbacks hard work paid off with a shutout win over the Rangers. Marc Baronci pitched solid today throwing heat and fooling batters with an effective change-up.

Alan Birnbaum played heads up all day, and had several great at bats. Jeremy Wong had a few good at bats too and came through with a nice hit.

The Hand Rolled Bagels Padres continued their heavy-hitting ways on Friday night with a matchup against the Adelphi University Twins. Marco Gullo and Stephen Coffey led the hit parade with a 4 for 4 night each. Not to be outdone, Joe Mattei, Vincent Pepe, Joe Montoni and Christian Flynn ensured the scoreboard operator earned his pay by adding 3 hits apiece. Michael O’Grady and Joe Vieni were launching rockets off of their bats and contributed some great defense. Last but in no way least, Andrew Stein, Sanay Shah, and Andrew Kern flashed some leather and hustled around the field like wild men, prompting coaches to inquire about bottling up this enthusiastic energy and giving it out before all games.
A last minute change of venue (and a malfunctioning pitcher) could not stop the Hand-Rolled Bagels Padres from rolling on against the Modell’s Sporting Goods Braves. After a slow start, they came alive with a 4 run fourth inning. Joe Montoni, Marco Gullo, Andrew Kern and Sanay Shah all had clutch hits to bring the team back into the game. Then the defense went into shutdown mode. Christian Flynn, Joe Vieni, and Michael O’Grady stopped everything that came their way, and Andrew Stein covered second base like a blanket, cutting off the entire middle of the diamond for the Braves’ batters. Once Vincent Pepe flew around the bases to score the seventh run, the Padres’ bench doused him with a Yoohoo shower (they had finished all the Gatorade) and game number four was complete. The boys continue their season with a rematch against the Dodgers on Friday.
The Hand Rolled Bagels Padres arrived at Manor Oaks Friday night with a sole purpose- to stop every ball that came their way (well, that and to score as many runs as possible). The Newman Orthodontics Dodgers’ big bats proved a worthwhile opponent. Vincent Pepe, Stephen Coffey, and Sanay Shah each ensured that they’d secured a place on that evening’s Web Gems reel with game-saving plays. Andrew Kern and Joe Mattei bought into the shutdown defense mentality by stopping everything the Dodgers hit in their vicinity. Not to be outdone, Christian Flynn, Marco Gullo and Michael O’Grady played flawlessly in the field, and each was perfect at the plate, all going 4 for 4. Joe Vieni, Andrew Stein and Joe Montoni all contributed with clutch hits that rocketed off their bats. Overall, the best effort by the Padres to date.
It was a beautiful day Saturday for baseball and the Cubs came to play. With only six players the cubs put on a hitting and fielding exhibition. Jack Kareff and James Asmus both hit doubles and Brendan Cooper went four for four. Hitting stars also included Eric Lee, Alex Isopo and Jordan Mayorga with a great hit up the middle. The Cubs defense was tight with Jack Kareff and Brendan Cooper combining for a double play and a great game by James Asmus at first base. Great fielding was also provided by Jordan Mayorga at second base, Alex Isopo behind the plate, and Eric Lee at third base. The Twins played an excellent game as well and both teams will meet again later in the season.
It was a beautiful day for baseball at Manor Oaks Stadium when the Braves took the field against the mighty Dodgers for an epic rematch. Leading the Braves offense was Kenny Hirchfeld with 5 hits. Also contributing to the offensive attack was Christopher Chin, Ryan Wasserman, Alan Sikora and Edward Mauceri with 4 hits each. Ryan powered the offense with 2 RBI doubles. Christian Sikiric, Anthony Levia and Brian O’Conner also had some great at bats. The defense was led by Christopher, Ryan and Kenny who were like gold gloves out in the field. The play of the game was when Ryan caught a laser beam line drive off the bat of a Dodger slugger. Edward also had a great game behind home plate. Kenny made a great scoop on a one hope throw at first. The Braves continue to show great teamwork and coach Ken and I our very proud of how well the boys are playing. The Dodgers also played a great game and had some very good plays in the field.
After a lengthy layoff due to rainouts, the Ducks played their best game of the year in a thrilling 3-2 victory over the super Cyclones. The Ducks jumped out to a 2-0 first inning lead thanks to a leadoff hit by Mikey Rose and a run-scoring triple by Eric Del Valle (who later scored on a fielder’s choice). Normally a 2-run lead is not much of a safe lead, but tonight it was due to the shutdown pitching of Joey Jacobs and Eric Del Valle. Joey hurled 4 innings of no-hit ball (5 Ks, 2 BBs, 2 Runs, 0 Earned Runs) followed by Eric Del Valle with 2 nearly perfect innings (seven batters faced — 6 Ks, 1 infield hit). The Cyclones’ only two runs of the game scored on a passed ball and an errant throw on a steal attempt. After the Ducks had taken the early 2-0 lead, the Cyclones closed the gap to 2-1 in the bottom of the second But the Ducks got that run right back in the top of the third thanks to a lead-off hit from Eric Del Valle, who advanced to third on steals and scored on a hit from Nick Femia. While the Cyclones later again closed the lead to one run, the Ducks never gave up the lead. The Ducks’ defense was superb all night, highlighted by plays from Brian Volk (throwing out a runner from short while on his knees), Nick Femia (saving outs with a slick glove at first), Eric Del Valle (stabbing a hot shot at third and throwing out the runner at first as well as a spectacular, and possibly game saving, catch in left field on a long fly ball), George Vlantis & Tyler Witt (both with solid work behind the plate), as well as Jesse Romano and Robert Cass.

In what was shaping up to be an intense rematch between two formidable opponents, the mighty River Sharks found themselves up against an imposing pitching staff but were able to string together some timely hits and then hold off a furious comeback attempt to capture their third victory of the season, a 4-3 win against a resilient Bears team at the Merillon complex this afternoon. In his second start of the spring, pitcher John Napolitano was once again solid on the hill as he held a relentless lineup to 2 runs over three innings with a gritty performance that included 6 strikeouts, 2 walks and 4 hits while earning his first win of the season. However, it was a leadoff triple followed by a scorching home run by the Bears in the top of the third that briefly tied the score at 2. Offensively, Napolitano contributed with a single and 2 stolen bases. The River Sharks stormed back in the bottom of the third after Thomas Messina hit a two-out single and after stealing second base, came around to score on a triple to deep centerfield off the bat of slugger Bryan Wu who then stole home. Earlier in the game, Messina hit a two-out double to right field, stole third base and scored on a single to centerfield by Wu. Together, the duo combined for four hits, two RBIs, three stolen bases and three runs scored. Max Silverstein took the hill in impressive fashion for the River Sharks in the bottom of the fourth and held the Bears to two hits and one run while striking out four over two innings. Wu came in to close the game in the top of the sixth and after giving up a leadoff double and walk, retired the side to end the game. Lou Mangia made his first appearance of the season for the River Sharks with a hard hit single up the middle in the bottom of the fifth and also showed off some flashy defensive skills throughout the game. Thomas Haug led off the bottom of the second with a hard hit single to centerfield, advanced to second base on a perfectly executed sacrifice bunt by Scott Schanter and came around to score on two consecutive stolen bases. Catching in his fourth straight complete game, Haug had another great outing behind the plate as he limited the Bears to three stolen bases. Schanter continues to display defensive excellence at second base as he just missed turning a double play in the top of the first. Kyle Forde once again flashed the leather in the field. A special thanks to call-ups Peter Carreca and Brett Figelman who both had great at-bats while each patrolled the outfield with authority. Go River Sharks!

They were helped by outstanding defense by Thomas Rubinic who caught a long fly ball in the left field gap that saved a run from scoring, Matthew Merolla who helped end an inning by turning a sweet 3 to 1 force out and Brandon Colon who made a beautiful snag of a hit down the first baseline to prevent extra bases. The offense was quiet, but Garrett Roth, Anthony Steves, Matthew Rubinic, Liam Nihan and Nicholas Rubinic had great at bats and made the pitchers work for every out. As is customary for the Backs, they rallied in their last at bat and made the Rockies earn their win. The team hopes to restart their winning ways on Saturday.
