Jan. 12, 2010 marked a particularly tragic day in Haiti’s history, as the effects of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that shook the country’s already impoverished population and infrastructure were catastrophic.
Paradox Cafe continued their winning ways against Changing Times this past week, posting a 26-7 victory. The game started off tight in the first four innings with the score 7-6 in favor of Paradox. The fifth and eighth innings proved to be the game changers and Paradox broke out for 19 runs combined. Solid pitching by Bob Thompson carried through along with strong defense including multiple rundowns by Billy Gonzalez in left field. Swinging the bat well on the night were Gary Innes, Al Celeste and Walter Hasemann each with 3 RBIs. The whole team continues to consistently bat up and down the order and more importantly, to play strong defense. Paradox wishes a speedy recovery to Tony Scime who injured his leg this past Friday.

The clash between Autocraft and Lockie & Nowachek Family Chiropractors, both courting 1-2 records, was one of those old time barnburners with Autocraft coming out on top 17-15. There were some great moments for Autocraft that overcame the bad. The topper was a home run blast by Donnie Simone that cleared the fence behind the trees in left center, something rarely seen. Mike Ferreti kept L&N honest by pitching a strong game giving little or nothing away. Veteran Dave Rubino looked like his early days having a multi-hit night including one off the pole in deep left center. Aldo Balducci, Joe “Mr. Steady” Lutz, Dennis “Ace” Oehl, and Brian Landy all had big nights at the plate, as did Big Mike Mormino. Frankie “Quatro cinco seis” promised his teammates a hit next game.
On Monday, May 9, led by Daler ace Alex Brosnan, the Dalers beat Massapequa 2-0. Backed by a strong pitching performance from Brosnan who gave up only two hits while striking out 13, the Dalers scored four runs in the fifth after consecutive hits by Matt Oppedisano and Richie Sullivan. With one out Nick Colasurdo and Rocky Santopadre also followed with back to back hits to plate two runs which was enough run support for Brosnan to throw a complete game.
The game between Singletons and Barco Construction started out as a pitching duel but ended up being a slugfest. After the third inning, the score was only 3-2 in favor of Barco, but as the fourth inning began the bats heated up and runs started accumulating.
