The RGMVM Softball Power Pitchers Of 2003 !


The 2003 Big League power pitcher of the year was Kate Scotko. After seven years at RGMVM Kate has brought a new dimension to girl’s softball at the league. She was the first windmill pitcher and opened the door for other girls to follow. Through her example other girls are now taking windmill lessons, playing travel ball and competing at the high school level. This spring Kate will be finishing her career at Stella Maris H.S. . Next year she will be moving into the NCAA ranks on the Molloy College softball team.

The Senior Division pitcher of the year was Samantha Stallone. Sammy led the way for Glendale Diner on the mound with her tremendous control and determination. Sammie is undefeated in the last two seasons for the Diner. Sammie makes her entire team better behind her by pitching and not just throwing. This quality sets Sammie aside from the rest. Sammie starts her High School career this spring and will take her game to the next level. The sky is the limit for young hurler Stallone, who continues to prove she is one of the best big game pitchers at RGMVM.

In the Major league Division, Dayna Ferran’s power pitching made her the standout on the mound. Dayna was undefeated in the 2003 regular season. She was also undefeated in play-off competition. The ace on Schawaroch Chapels, Dayna led her team to victory in the 2003 Major Division World Series championship. As a student of Diana DiGilio and Julie Bolduc, Dayna has many years left at RGMVM and many championships ahead of her.

Since Kate Scotko started the trend in windmill pitching, the RGMVM softball program has a full arsenal of up and coming power pitchers and they deserve mention. Kayley Ferran, Lynn Schiano, Krystil Hofmann, Olivia Auman, Cecilia Ehressmen, Johanna Rice, Nicole Croquez, Stephanie Bristol and Danielle Esposito are all expected to keep this program strong for many years to come.

Continuing our series on pitchers of the year within each division at RGMVM, the Minor Division pitcher of the year is Joseph Santoro, who had an outstanding year in leading his team, 104 Roller Hockey, to the championship. Joseph went undefeated for the year and the play-offs. He also appeared in the All-star game for the Minor Division and again showed why he was the power pitcher in the Minor Division for 2003.

The Rookie pitcher of the year is Chris Piteo, who also helped lead his team, the Metro Stars, to the championship. Chris also was the lead pitcher on the 8 year old travel team, the Bulldogs, and helped lead them to the NY State combined AABC / Federation Championship and a New York PONY Championship. Pitching for the Bulldogs, throughout the regular season, playoffs, tournament and Fall Season, Chris had a combined 16-3 record with a sparkling 2.17 e.r.a and 2 saves thrown in for good measure! These statistics are especially noteworthy since the Bulldogs played in an older league (9/10 year olds) in the Fall season.

Chris has proven to be a real power pitcher for his age, striking out 187 batters in his 105 innings of work. The highlight of Chris's season of highlights occurred during the Fall season Diamond Pro's playoffs, where he pitched a complete game 4-3 victory over Yorkville. Yorkville is a team made up of 10 year olds and it turned
out to be their only loss of the fall season!

Chris has 4 seasons left to play at the RGMVM complex so his
accomplishments are sure to grow. For now, he is the Rookie Power Pitcher of the Year.

The 2003 RGMVM Major Division Power Hurler !

"TJ" Fox Is The RGMVM Power Hurler Of The Year In The Major Division.

TJ has played for RGMVM since 1997, when he won the MVP in the Instructional All-star game. TJ was on the mound in 1998 and struck out the final batter to win the 1998 Rookie World Series. This year, his last year in the Major Division, TJ dominated on the pitchers mound, pitching 36 innings, allowing only 15 hits and 7 runs, while striking out an amazing 82 batters!! His strong pitching continued in the 2003 all-star game, where he worked 2 scoreless innings and struck out 6, earning the MVP award for a second time (his younger brother Matthew was awarded the MVP for the 2003 Rookie game, the first time brothers have won the award on the same day).

TJ pitched on the RGMVM Little League Tournament teams in 2001 & 2003. In 2001, he allowed only 3 run's in 7 innings pitched; in 2003, although he pitched 4 shutout innings and got the win against Briarwood, his personal highlight came when he pitched 6 innings, allowing 2 runs and striking out 12 against Ozone Howard, in a game the team eventually lost in extra innings.

TJ's dominance on the mound continued during the Diamond Pro's Fall League, where he competed against the premier players from other areas. Representing RGMVM, TJ's playoff performance against Bronxchester and Williston Park was excellent. He pitched 20 innings, allowing 7 hits, 2 runs, and striking out 41!! Although RGMVM came up one game short of the championship, TJ's performance against previously undefeated (36-0) Williston Park earned him rave reviews. He pitched 6 innings, striking out 15, allowing 1 unearned run, and handed Williston their only loss in two years.

TJ never lets his pitching talent go to his head. He is always there for his teammates and never puts himself above the team. He is truly a great competitor and always shows good sportsmanship.

Enough Said!

That is why TJ FOX is 2003 Power Pitcher of the Year in the Major Division…………….
