2014 Baseball and Softball Season Opens

On Saturday, April 5th under bright sunshine and windy conditions, our 2014 Baseball and Softball season opened.

The day started with our Sports Mass presided by Father Tighe followed by a short parade from the church to Vleigh Park where a brief ceremony was held.

Our season will be dediciated to the memory of our former T-Ball Ambassador, Coach Frank McClendon, who passed away in February.  All of our team hats will have a 'FM' decal on it.

A heart-felt THANK YOU to our Athletic Director, Manny Santiago and the coaches who arrived at 6:30am to drain the fields from the previous night's rain to get our games in.

We appreciate our newly-elected Councilman Rory Lancman for stopping by to speak and throw a ceremonial first pitch.   Thanks to Eddie Cordero for coordinating.

Our 2 TBall teams, Lil Mets and Lil Phillies then held a short practice before our Farm games.

In the opening Farm Games, the Blue Jays staged a late inning rally highlighed by a grand slam from Shane Hollinsed to get by the Marlins 14-11. The Astros defeated the Pirates 6-3 to give Coach Rich Becker a victory in his Farm coaching debut.

The day moved onto our CYO Travel Baseball and Softball games. The 3rd grade Sub Novice Wildcats bested Our Lady of Hope 8-0 behind a strong offense led by Kyle Pena, Fabian Baigorria and Enrique Ortiz.  The 8th grade Intermediate White team dropped a 10-1 decision to St Mel.  The Girls 6th grade Bantam team romped to a 16-3 victory over St Pancras.  The 5th grade Novice team had a walk-off 9-8 win over St Virgilius. 

All schedules and game results are available on the site. Check regularly for updates.
