Welcome to the Home of the New City Outlaws

Welcome to the home of the New City Outlaws. The Outlaws are a semi-pro team based in Rockland County, New York. The team was established in 2002 with former players from the Rockland Cavaliers and the New City Mariners. The Outlaws are composed of players with pro and college experience.

2003 was a season in which the Outlaws hoisted the coveted WRWBL Championship trophy. The Outlaws had a respectful season in which they finished with a record of 19-7. It took the team a while to get it going but when it mattered most, they got in done and won the Championship. The team clicked on all cylinders in the playoffs having played great defense, offense and getting tremendous pitching.

2004 was a record setting year for the Outlaws as a team. The Outlaws ended the regular season at 31-2 and won the Atlantic City Tournament rolling to a perfect 5-0 record in the Memorial Day Weekend Tournament, which helped gain National ranking. New City locked their first ever #1 seed through out the Playoffs but could not put the icing on the cake as we were swept in the Championships.

2005 was a year in which the Outlaws came into the season with high hopes after a successful 2004 campaign. The season was one of disappointment because anything short of a championship was considered a failure. The Outlaws ended the season with a 21-7 record and rolled to their second consecutive Atlantic City Tournament win but could not ride that momentum and were ousted from the playoffs by the Brooklyn Falcons.

2006 is a year in which the Outlaws are geared to prove that last year was not a sign of the Outlaws on the decline. They are out to prove that they are still one of the top teams in the league. The Outlaws will be returning many old faces and will be adding some new ones to help them regain their dominant presence.

Outlaws Knock Off Astros 9-1

   The New City Outlaws defeated a very energized Bronx Astros ball club 9 to 1 Sunday morning at Suffern High School.  For the second straight week the Outlaws had great pitching, defense and some timely hits.

   Left-hander Chris Berretta started for the Outlaws and went 5 scoreless innings.  Following up Berretta's outstanding start were relievers Alex VanHauten and Chris Robinson.  The two relievers went 4 innings, give up only 1 run.

   Offensively, the Outlaws played some small ball, were aggressive on the bases and had contributions from everyone.  The Outlaws had a spark off the bench from pinch hitter Chris Conover.  Conover was instant offense going 2 for 2 and stealing not only third base but a chunk of the ground as well.  Quote the field ump on Conover's head first slide "Can we replace that divot".

   The Outlaws are back in action next Sunday for a doubleheader with the Pleasantville Red Sox.  The first game starts at 10 am at Suffern High School.

Gutty performance, great defense, big knock led Outlaws to FINALS!!!!

Brian Brophy pitched 8 1/3 innings only giving up 1 run to led the Outlaws to another finals appearance.  New City took a 1-0 lead in the first after Mike Amendola laced a one out double to left center.  Justin Michalek follwed with a single to left to put runners at first and third.  Ryan Lockee hit a sacrifice fly to score Amendola and just like that the Outlaws had struck first. Brophy mowed down the Tides all night ,not allowing a single baserunner to advance to third all night.  Brophy had 10 strikeouts and the Outlaws played spectacular defense.  Amendola turned an unassistant double play to get Brophy out of a jam in the 6th and in the top of the 8th Wayne Pope made  an unbelievable diving play to retire the leadoff man.  Brophy who had been battling arm fatigue for the last few innings began to tire as the versitle Bill Eller warmed in the pen.  Up 1-0 in the botom of the 8th Amendola hit a solo homerun over the left field fence increasing the lead to 2-0.  Brophy started the 9th and gave up a leadoff  homerun.  After retiring the next hitter Brophy had enough.   Eller entired the game and got the next  hitter to line to right for the 2nd out.  With the dangerous Marc Kenyon at the plate Eller got ahead in the count and got him to fly to center to end the game...... After Chris Berretta settled under the shallow fly could put it in the books.....

After a tough 2-1 series win the Outlaws advance to the fianls where hey will face either long time nemisis the Danbury Barons (who lead their series 1-0) or their Rockalnd rivals the Rockland Cavaliers. Game 1 is set for Sunday at Pace.  The Outlaws will be back home at Germonds for Game 2 Tuesday at 7:00.  Game 3 will either be at West Conn (if Danbury wins) or at Germonds (if the Cavs can pull through).  Game 4 (if necessary) will be at Germonds, while Game 5 (if necessary) is slated for Pace.

Outlaws Blast Royals

The Outlaws were once again led by the strong pitching of ace Chris Granata as he went the complete 8 innings to earn his fifth win with no losses. He also threw his second shoutout of the year.
   James Caraleo's 2 out 2 run RBI single in the bottom of the first gave Granata all the runs he would need. Mike Amendola led of the third with a homerun over the left field wall. Scott Seabury would go back to back with Amendola to up the lead to 4-0. With Granata in cruise control (4 hits allowed all game) the lead was pushed to 6-0 when Rocky Maggino added a two out 2 run RBI single in the 4th. In the bottom of the 8th Ryan Lockee and Brian Brophy added back to back run scoring singles to increase the score to 8-0. With a runner on first Lou Matta put one into the trees in left center well over the fence to but a stoppage to play as the Outlaws won 10-0. The win increases their record to 13-3. After a tough game two loss Sunday at Danbury this was a big win.

New City Outlaws 2007 Preview

2006 Record: 20-8 (Regular Season) 28-11 (including playoffs) 38-15 (overall)

Manager: Joe Maggino (6th Season -- 111-31 overall regualar season)

Key Returns: Mike Amendola, James Caroleo, Brian Brophy, Chris Berretta, Chris Granata, Vinny Martino, Nephty Cruz, Guerrin Raff, Rocky Maggino, Scott Seabury, Ryan Lockee, Joe Berretta, Jason Finley, Bill Eller, Chris Conover, Adam Josephart

Key Losses: Matt Miranda

Key Additions: Wayne Poppe, Dan Neil, Dave Schwartz, Joe Alvarez

Keys to Victory: Pitching and Solid Defense. Aggressive Offense

Player to Watch: Ryan Lockee

Outlook: Over the past five seasons only one club has won more regular season games than the Outlaws., thanks to a consistent and talented nucleus.

The Outlaws return a strong outfield anchored by James Caroleo and Scott Seabury.    Caroleo is among the league’s leaders in homeruns, doubles and RBIs.    Seabury will continue to be an on-base machine and is deadly on the basepaths. He has consistently been one of the team leaders in hits, runs scored , and stolen basses. Also in the mix is Matt Granata and Dan Neil, who will platoon in right field. They both possess great throwing arms and left handed power bats. Neil could arguably be the fastest player in the WRWBL. A former pitcher in the Cleveland Indians’ farm system, he will also be called upon to lend some innings on the mound.

The infield is stocked with talent, including returnees Brian Brophy, Billy Eller, and Mike Amendola. Eller is not the WRWBL’s flashiest shortstop, but he is one of the most surehanded and cerebral infielders in the league. A consistent bat and a steady player, Eller will be looked upon once again to provide big plays in important situations. Amendola is coming off his best offensive season in which he hit .400. Ryan Lockee, the MVP of the Atlantic City Tournament, will be the team’s every day first baseman. A great defensive player, he provides another solid left handed stick at the plate. If Lockee stays healthy, the sky is the limit. Chris Conover will come off the bench to provide some pop. Conover will be an extra outfielder and will also fill in at third base when needed. Rocky Maggino provides his speed as a valuable asset off the bench. Maggino is currently recovering from shoulder surgery and is hoping to make a return to the team by late May. Lefty Joe Berretta will provide the pinch-hit power and mix well against teams’ bullpens. Joe Alvarez and Wayne Poppe are also viable options off the bench, providing depth to the lineup while also contributing defensively. With these players added to the mix there doesn’t seem to be an easy out in this line-up. Maggino will be working his magic in order to keep the four headed monster of Eller, Amendola, Alvarez, and Poppe in the everyday line-up.   

The pitching staff will once again be anchored by efficient righthander Chris Granata and southpaw Chris Berretta. Neither is overpowering but get hitters out with changing speeds and low walk counts. The Outlaws #3 starter will be William Patterson starter Vinny Martino. Coming off his first full season with the Outlaws, Martino will be looked upon to be that power strikeout pitcher. Adam Josephart will serve as the club’s fourth starter. Josephart is coming off a great first season with the Outlaws, but is underwent elbow surgery in the offseason and hopes to be ready by the first few weeks of the season. Maggino plans to ease Josephart back so he will be at full strength for the stretch run. Returning catcher Guerin Raff will handle the staff with newcomer Dave Schwartz. Schwartz is another young player that the Outlaws are looking for to make a big impact. He is currently the starting catcher and clean-up hitter at RCC and possesses a strong throwing arm.

The Outlaws player to watch is Lockee. The left hander has tremendous talent and is a gap hitting machine. If Lockee can but together a full season by staying healthy there is no doubt he will be one of the top players in the league.
