Majors Champion Blue Jays!
by posted 06/18/2019

The Blue Jays shut out the regular season first place White Sox 3-0 to capture the Majors division championship.


After getting off to a hot 3-0 start to begin the season, the Blue Jays finished the regular season 4-9, including losses in their last eight games.  In the round robin, the Jays went 1-3, with their only win coming against the Astros, who also went 1-3. As a result, the Jays snuck into the playoffs and saved their best baseball for when it counted, holding off a very tough Tigers team 11-8 in the semi-finals to get to the championship game.  In the other semi-final game, the White Sox, managed by Joe Ford, came back from a 2-1 deficit to win a thriller 3-2 over the Red Sox.


During the regular season, the Blue Jays received solid contributions at the plate and on the mound from the Spear brothers, Jack and Tyler, Stephen Nason and Cooper Correnti. Chase Fasciano and Luke Siriani also ate up some innings for the Jays.  Correnti and Sal Brogna did most of the work behind the plate for the Jays. Ryan Freed and Tommy Pohlmeyer played solid defense all season.


In the championship game, Tyler Spear got the nod for the Blue Jays and had his best performance all season.  Spear shut down a very well balanced White Sox team. The Blue Jays were able to scrape together three runs off Micah Hashikawa before handing the ball over to Chase Groothuis. Once Spear ran into his maximum pitch count, Coach Steve Correnti called on Tyler’s younger brother Jack to slam the door.  Jack retired the White Sox in order in the sixth to preserve the shutout and capture the championship for the Jays.


The members of the championship Blue Jays are:

Sal Brogna, Cooper Correnti, Chase Fasciano, Ryan Freed, Matthew Fukuda, Colten Landen, Stephen Nason, Cecilia O’Connor, Tommy Pohlmeyer, Sam Schepens, Luke Siriani, Jack Spear and Tyler Spear.


Manager: Steve Correnti; Coaches: Bill Bufalino, Kyle Spear, Dan Fasciano, Andy Freed

Minors Champion Cubs!
by posted 06/18/2019

The Minors championship game saw the Cubs hanging on to defeat the Braves 8-7 for the title.


The Cubs finished the regular season 10-5, with four of those losses coming against the Braves. Led at the top of the lineup by Rocco Cerrutti and Caleb Reilly, these two set the table for the Cubs all year, combining for fifty-one hits. The Cubs were powered in the middle of their lineup by Teddy O'Neill and Edward Goodrich and also received clutch hits during the season from Henry Sullivan and Jackson Kennedy.  Andy "Ninja" Pica, Wiley Shepherd and TJ Ballantine started to collect their hits down the stretch for the Cubs. Speedster Brady Haskell was a weapon on the base paths and Anthony Colella led the "I'm fired up, are you fired up!" cheers for the Cubbies all season. O'Neill, Cerrutti, Sullivan and Kennedy anchored the staff most of the year while ace Khalil Abraham missed most of the regular season with a shoulder injury.


In the semi-final game, in only his second outing since returning from injury, Abraham shut down the Nationals with a complete game one-hitter, fanning ten.  The Cubs hit early and often, including a triple from Caleb Reilly, and put up thirteen runs on thirteen hits. In the semi-final game between the Braves and the Brewers, Beau Olivieri led the Braves to the championship game with a complete game win, allowing only one run.  The Braves, managed by Lou Olivieri, received contributions all year from Kalen Huddle, Sam Baran, Ollie Riddell and Miles O'Neil.


In the championship game, Olivieri got the nod for the Braves.  The Cubs got to him for a run in the second when Abraham scored on a passed ball.  In the third, the Braves turned it over to Huddle and the Cubs scored five times on three hits.  The Cubs tacked on two more runs in the top of the fifth to put them up 8-0. Meanwhile, the Cubs turned once again to Khalil Abraham to start.  Catcher Teddy O'Neill gunned down two base runners in the first inning and from there Abraham dominated by striking out ten Braves through 4 2/3 innings of work.  In the bottom of the sixth, things got very interesting as the Cubs relievers had trouble finding the plate. The Braves batted around, putting up seven runs and the tying and winning runs were on base when Cerrutti caught the last batter looking to end the game.


The members of the championship Cubs are:

Khalil Abraham, TJ Ballantine, Rocco Cerrutti, Anthony Colella, Edward Goodrich, Brady Haskell, Jackson Kennedy, Teddy O'Neill, Andy Pica, Caleb Reilly, Wiley Shepherd, Henry Sullivan.


Manager: Al Pica; Coaches: Jerry Cerrutti, Pat O’Neill, Andy Colella, Jack Ballantine

Farm Champion Orioles!
by posted 06/18/2019

The Orioles finished the season at 9-3.  The team had solid contributions from the whole roster.  The pitching staff was led by Gavin Cerrutti and Tyler Ostroff.  All of the Orioles swung the bats this year. The hitting stars included Ellias Delacruz, Jackson Pheiffenberger, Adam Abd-Alla, Jett Nichols, Daniel Greco, Tyler Ostroff, Keir Von Barta and Gavin Cerrutti.  Great defense was played throughout the season, especially by Daniel Greco and Jett Nichols behind the plate and Ellias Delacruz at first base. Ej Marquez and Lucy Siefken also made solid overall contributions.


Playoff Review

In the semifinals the Orioles beat the Rangers 10-0.  They got great pitching from both Ostroff and Cerrutti.  Timely hits with the bases loaded by Adam Abd-Alla and Lucy Siefken helped put the Orioles up by five runs.  In the fourth inning Ostroff connected on a three-run homer to put the Orioles up 8-0. The Rangers were led by pitcher Michael Hall who fanned several Orioles batters.   In the other semifinal game, the Rays held off the Cardinals 7-6 with strong pitching performances by Jack Pavey and Tyler Bridge.



The Orioles and Rays were in a pitchers duel with the score tied 1-1 after four innings of play.  The Orioles bats came alive in the bottom of the fifth, scoring four runs to put them ahead 5-1. Ellias Delacruz had the big hit driving in two runs with a double to left field.   The key defensive play in the game for the Orioles came in the top of the fourth. With two outs and the bases loaded, Tyler Bridge of the Rays hit a line drive back to Ostroff on the mound, who threw home to catcher Jett Nichols who made a great catch, killing the Rays rally.   The championship game was very well played by both teams and several great plays were made in the field.


The members of the championship Orioles are:

Adam Abd-Alla, Gavin Cerrutti, Elias Delacruz, Daniel Greco, EJ Marquez, Jett Nichols, Tyler Ostroff, Jack Pheiffenberger, Lucy Siefken and Keir Von Barta
