Cenzo Montoni made 2 good plays at second, Abidin Dauti completed a 5 to 3 put out, Mathew Merolla made a great scoop of a ball in the dirt at first, Daniel Mattei hit the cutoff man preventing a run from scoring and Mathew Stroccha played well at first to complete a 4 to 3 put out..

Paul Depaulis and Cenzo Montoni managed to get on base setting it up for Darren Yang. With two strikes, he kept his cool and blasted a bases clearing triple. The Brewers showed their team spirit by celebrating with Darren and of course acknowledged the Rockies for a great game. Hats off to both teams for a great game!!

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.”
