On another brisk but beautiful late October morning the Nationals came out swinging in a late-season matchup against the Braves. Solid team play at the plate and in the field balanced out another impressive outing by the Nationals. Nationals’ fielders James Kim, Cooper Alwadish, Jose Betances, Lance Yetikyel, Garrett Roth, and Jonathan Grenard all made exceptional defensive plays during the game, with every Nationals’ player contributing to the defensive effort. Standout at-bats by the entire Nationals batting order kept the excitement level high, with notable plate appearances by Aidan Chun (2-3), Joseph Vieni (2-3), Jonathan Grenard (3-3), Christopher Erxleben (2-3), Lance Yetikyel (2-3), Jon Ziebitch (3-4), and Cooper Alwadish (4-5). It was an another exciting, well-played game by both teams, with players and fans on both sides enjoying another action-packed game at the Merillon Athletic Complex.
We want to thank our sponsors New Hyde Park Funeral Home Inc. for giving the boys the opportunity to play ball. Today Saturday October 23, 2010 the boys ready and eager to play. Great hitting by all the boys Nick Marsella, Dan Garcia, Marco Gullo, Joe Mattei & Ryan Garzon. Wonderful glove work by Justin Marsella and Dan Rielly. Great diving catch by Giuseppe Seidita.

Welcome back to Brewers baseball! The bats were alive again this week, and the Brewers made the hits count. The RBI’s were as follows: Mathew Merolla (3), Cenzo Montoni (2), Anthony Devito (1), Darren Yang (1), Christian Zamorra (1), Mathew Strocchia (1), Daniel Goldberg (1), Daniel Mattei (1), Alfred Squicciarino (1), Justin Yang (1), and Abidin Dauti (1). The “frozen rope” award goes to Paul Depaulis. The infield again played well as Cenzo, Abidin, Mathew M, Justin, Darren, Paulie, Mathew S, and Anthony, displayed great range, and completed many outs. Daniel M, Daniel G, and Alfred, played a great outfield and kept the runners from advancing. Christian Zamorra again gets the “ hustle” award as he always runs the play out at first base. The team is getting better every week and they continue to make fall baseball at Merillon very exciting. Stay tuned for more exciting Brewers baseball next week.
