A's take Senior League World Series in Two Games

The A’s won game 2 of the Senior League World Series last night, 14-7 defeating the Red’s, making them the Senior League champions.  Coach Brian Woods won his second consecutive title as the A’s manager and retires from the Senior League a champion.

   Brian is the only outgoing manager of this group of managers this year and I would like to acknowledge his many years of service to NHYBS. With several championships along the way Brian has proven himself a student of the game who has helped many of our boys over the years be better baseball players.    I have not met a kid yet, who played for Brian, who has told me he didn’t benefit from playing for coach Woods in some way.  Brian’s passion for the game, his desire to make our kids better and his inclusive approach to playing is a model for what we look for in a manager when deciding who gets the responsibility of coaching your kids.  Brian’s shoes will not be easily filled.  Thank you for 9 great years with NHYBS Brian!

Thank you to all of the managers and coaches who volunteered their time to coach our boys this season.  Without you none of this happens.  It was especially challenging this season to have the field ready to play after all the rain but these guys put in the time to recover the field and made sure our kids were able to play. Coaches your hard work beyond coaching the game is appreciated.

 I would also like to thank the parents who worked the snack shack this year and volunteered their time to make sure no one left stadium 31 hungry.

 I would like to acknowledge and thank Vinny Gallo who stepped in to run the snack shack.  With my girls’ softball league responsibilities taking the front seat to the senior league this year it was good to know that Vinny was there, eager to help and made sure that the snack shack always had food to cook and sell.  It would have been a very hungry spring for the fans at 31 if Vinny had not volunteered his time.

Lastly I would like to reflect on the 28 outgoing 15 year olds who have provided their families many memories from their time on the NHYBS baseball fields over the years.  I personally know many of you and your families and I hope your journey in life always takes you back to this place or a place just like it.  I hope you recall your time here fondly and I hope that one day you provide a place for your children to enjoy the game as much as your parents have enjoyed watching each of you.

  Have a great summer!

First Annual Baseball Vs Softball Coaches Game

The first annual Softball vs Baseball coaches’ game did not disappoint.   The baseball coaches led by Manager Ron Corcoran, jumped out to an early lead and never trailed.  In the end the softball coaches, led by Manager Joe Vallely, mounted a late inning comeback but fell short losing 19-18 in a 10 inning thriller to the baseball coaches.

All the fans in attendance got their monies worth with two explosive offenses as well as a bunch of defensive gems.  More importantly our hardworking coaches got a chance to blow off some steam and bond with their counterparts that they spent the whole season competing against.

 On behalf of the board I would like to personally thank all of the coaches who played in the game and every coach who volunteered their time this year to help teach our children about the games we all love.  Without you the league does not exist!  Enjoy your summer and we hope to see you all in the fall.

10U Hillsborough Memorial Day Tournament Champions

These boys battled through the whole tournament, coming back in game 1 from being down 6-0 in the third to winning 8-7 against Readington. Then won a solid back and forth game with Franklin (8-5) to secure the top seed going into the playoffs, where they were able to secure their championship game by defeating Hillsborough 10-0.

Despite being down 2-0 all the way into the 5th inning last night, they continued to fight, played great defense and came alive with the bats to put up 5 runs and continue with the solid defense to pull out the win!

The Rarest of Plays

 On a cool damp morning on May 20th 2017 at Bundt Park field 4, the Panther and the Tarheels of NHYBS Junior softball division were locked in the intensity of a closely played game.  The parent's, players and fans had no idea history was about to be made.

 

   It was the bottom of the 4th inning and the Panthers were up and had managed to load the bases and score a few runs without having anyone called out. Their rally was abruptly stymied by eight-year-old Kayla Appicelli who was playing the position of pitcher.

 

  A well hit line drive was placed with strategic precision directly up the middle.  Kayla charged back and managed to make an over the shoulder catch.  She had the immediate sense, being in close proximity to second base, to run to the base and tag it.   The advancing runner from second was immediately called out by what could only be described as a beautiful double play.

 

   This of course in and of itself would have been a tremendous play but Kalya was not done.  After a momentary pause Kalya tagged the runner who had advanced on the hit from first to second base who had not tagged up properly.   By tagging this runner Kayla had managed to complete one of the rarest of plays. 

 

To my knowledge this play is so rare that it has only happened 15 times in Major League baseball history.  It is so rare it has not happened since August 23rd 2009 by Eric Bruntlett who was playing second base for the Philadelphia Phillies.  Kalya had not even turned one year old the last time this feat was achieved.  This play is so rare that there have been more perfect games than this play.  It should also be noted that in all of major league history a pitcher has never performed this play.   

 

What was the play? It was an unassisted triple play.  To the absolute delight of all who were in attendance, Kayla singlehandedly squashed the Panthers rally and in the process performed what will now be the only known documented unassisted triple play in the history of Bundt Park and the first ever unassisted triple play in the history of NHYBS softball. 

Well done Kayla!
