It was a perfect summer evening for baseball recently as David (St. Aloysius) once again took on a Goliath (St. Patrick of Pt. Washington), this time with a trip to the CYO Eighth Grade Baseball League Championship game at stake. The story of the night was “zero” which represented the number of hits and runs the St. Aloysius batters were able to get in the first 6 2/3 innings of the game.
Wednesday, June 6, may have been the only dry day that week and fortunately it was the day that the championship game was played in the Great Neck Little League Minors “B” division for the 8/9 age group. This season’s final game featured the rubber match of a three-game season long series between the Dodgers and the Marlins. In the first two games, played during the regular season, these two teams played to a tie. And so it seemed that fate would have the same two teams meet in the final game of the season for the championship trophy.
On June 9, the Great Neck Little League Minors White Soxs took on the Great Neck Little League Minor Giants in the 10-and-11-year-old championship game at Kings Point Park. It was hard fought game which the White Soxs won by a score of 4 to 3. William Lentini was the winning pitcher throwing no hit ball for 4 and 1/3 innings until he reached his pitch limit. He struck out 12 and did not give up a hit.
On a beautiful Sunday evening June 2, the baseball team from St. Aloysius in Great Neck was matched upon against CYO powerhouse St. Dominic of Oyster Bay. This was the fourth meeting between these two teams over the past two seasons with St. Dom’s having emerged victorious in all of the prior games. And this game appeared to be following the same script with St. Dom’s scoring a run in the first inning followed by one in the fourth and another in the final seventh inning.

In what has become a rite of passage for the Great Neck Soccer Club, the U14 divisions of both the boys and girls were treated to a trip down south to commemorate their hard work over the years.
