PONIES Wrap-Up Fall Ball for the Season with a Strong Finish


The STPS Ponies finished their 2014 fall season winning 8 of their last 10 games, capping off their schedule with a tournament best 4-0-1 record at the Rock Sports Complex in Chester, NY. Two weeks prior, the Ponies finished 4-1 at the Deleware FAll Showcase in New Castle, Deleware. Showcasing a deep and talented stable of pitchers, an aggressive approach on the bases, solid defense and timely hitting - there is plenty to be excited about as off-season work outs approach in January. Pitchers Sophia Pappas, Whitney Tyler and Alivia Clark all showed great command and a competitive spirit every time they stepped into the circle. The offensive attack was led by Pappas, Clark, Adrianna Harvey, Alex Gockley, Rachel Gilmore and Alex Hein. The team's Summer schedule will be announced in the near future.

PONIES Celebrate Coach Sinicki's 25th Year and raise funds for Jack Sheridan


On July 9th the Ponies organization held a special event. The evening started with a Home Run Derby to benefit Jack Sheridan, the brother of Ponies Alumni Jordan Sheridan, who is battling Leukemia. Liz Wickizer emerged as the champion after a three way tie produced a hit-off to establish a winner.

The HR Derby was followed by an Alumni Game to honor Coach Sinicki's 25th year. The turnout was amazing! Attendees spanned a few decades and the game appropriately ended in a 5-5 tie. Following the game all of the players presented Coach Sinicki with a Plaque commemorating his 25 years of dedication to the PONIES.

It was a great evening, a fun evening and a proud evening for the Ponies organization as the current team and the Alumni showed their generosity while raising nearly $700 for Jack Sheridan.
