The Merillon fall season began with a solemn moment of silence for the heroes of 9/11. The Brewers bats were inspired by the opening day tribute. The offense was powered by Darren Yang with 4 RBI’s, both Justin Yang and Cenzo Montoni with 2 RBI’s each and single RBI’s by Abidin Dauti, Paul DePaulis, Anthony DeVito, Daniel Mattei and Christian Zamora. The defense was also sharp with plays by Matthew Merolla at first and third, Daniel Goldberg at first, Cole LaRock at second and Matthew Strocchia in centerfield. The power awards go to Darren Yang, Matthew Merolla, Abidin Dauti and Daniel Mattei who hit hard doubles to left field. The gold glove awards go to Anthony DeVito, Cenzo Montoni, Justin Yang and Cole LaRock. The hustle awards go to Paul DePaulis, Matthew Strocchia, Christian Zamora and Daniel Goldberg.
Thanks to coach Joe Renta, the Merillon Girls 12U Sharks had a great summer playing in the Williamsport Tournament, Floral Park Tournament as well as the “First Annual Merillon Softball Classic” held at our facility. Renta said, “I wish to thank the entire team and parents for a job well done and showing tremendous support throughout the summer. I also want to thank Pat Rossello for helping me out during the summer, running the team and making my job easier. All of the players showed great ability and I am so proud of them. In fact we even had a “triple play” during one of the tournaments which is a remarkable accomplishment. The Merillon AA is proud of the girls program and we are hoping we can get more girls to play softball with us. Merillon AA is committed to the girls program, and I thank them for that. May everybody enjoy the rest of the summer and I will see you next year.”
