Glen Cove Junior Baseball/Softball made its ceremonial and official start of 2014 with a huge parade and opening day ceremonies at John Maccarone Memorial Stadium on April 19. It was an enjoyable and comfortable day enjoyed by parents, coaches and players alike. Play ball!
It’s that time of the year after a long hiatus to spring upon our sports enthusiasts our trivia question section. This week’s question: What Hall of Fame home run slugger never hit more than 50 homers in a season during his major league career? Answer next time, folks.
On opening day, the Stop and Shop Bees won 5-3 over the Forest Pizza Grasshoppers. The Bees were trailing 3-2, when they got a three-run homer to win the game...The Glen Key Realty Iron Pigs edged the Ateco Muckdogs, 9-8, on opening day. The Iron Pigs were leading, 9-0, when the Muckdogs made a remarkable comeback scoring eight runs but fell short. Devan Gonzalez slammed two homers for four RBI and Nickolas Santosus also homered and tripled for two RBI. Every Iron Pig hitter got a hit.
The Vincent P. Taranto, PC Yankees defeated the Caprarella Landscaping Texas Rangers, 6-0. Nick Famiglietti of the Rangers allowed only two hits, walked two batters and no runs in the Rangers’ loss. Jordan Mercado’s two-run triple and a throwing errors (two more runs allowed) in the sixth innings opened up the floodgates for the Yankees.
