From the Eyes of a Patriots Fan

August 17, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

It was a picture perfect night for baseball on Friday (August 16th).  While I realize that statement this is cliché’, it is apropos that evening at TD Ballpark, home of our Somerset Patriots of Bridgewater, NJ.  The park bustled with activity, from a dance performance given by a troupe of young entertainers, to the obligatory […]

WEBSTER, N.Y. – Hornell’s Dodgers came north on route 390 toting a four-game win streak along with them. The NYCBL Western Division leading club left town adding another victory to their streak. Matt Calhoun (Harding) connected for a three-run home run in the pivotal fifth inning as the Dodgers came from behind to defeat the […]

La conexión de Harvey Haddix y Graciliano Parra. Dos no-hitters truncados. (Harvey Haddix and Graciliano Parra’s connection. Two truncated no-hitters)

De acuerdo, la gesta de Haddix duró 12 episodios a ritmo de juego perfecto. Graciliano sólo tenía un juego sin hits ni carreras luego de 9 entradas. Sin embargo la tensión que ambos vivieron en el décimo tercer y el décimo inning respectivamente registró los escalofríos de cada uno de los presentes en el County […]

50 años del sin hits ni carreras de Bo Belinsky.(50 years from Bo Belinsky’s no-hitter.)

Había escuchado de este logro. De todas formas disfruté la reseña del libro “No-Hitters” de Rich Westcott y Allen Lewis. Los Angelinos de Los Angeles recibían a los Orioles del Baltimore el sábado 05 de mayo de 1962 en el Dodger Stadium de Chavez Ravine. Después que finalizó el encuentro Belinsky reconoció que la noche […]

Texas, La Historia Les Pasó La Cuenta (The History Will Not Forgive)

October 29, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Anoche los Cardenales de San Luis terminaron la obra que iniciaron el día anterior: rematar a los Vigilantes de Texas sin compasión. La victoria no pertenece al modelo clásico definitorio de la razón por la que se gana en el juego: “en beisbol gana el que mejor juegue”, sino a la que es el símbolo […]

Un Juego Indigno De Serie Mundial (A World Series Game Unworthy Of)

October 28, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Los juegos como el de anoche entre San Luis y Texas, por lo general, son buenos para el fanático del ganador, para el que apostó o para ganar una discusión; a fin de cuentas, ante situaciones como estas, solo importa la victoria; pero, para el pasatiempo no, no es posible que uno de los peores […]

WEBSTER, N.Y. — All’s well that ends well, and for the Webster Yankees that means another day atop the New York Collegiate Baseball League’s West Division. Chris Bostick (Aquinas Institute) rapped a two-out, walk-off single in the 10th inning capping  a wild affair as the Yankees trimmed the Geneva Red Wings 8-7 in NYCBL action […]

Touring The Bases With…Brent Mayne

August 11, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Catcher Brent Mayne was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the first round (#13 overall) of the 1989 amateur draft and made his major league debut only a year later, rapping an RBI single off Twins pitcher Scott Erickson in his first major league at-bat.  Mayne spent 15 seasons in the big leagues with […]

Webster moves on to the playoffs

July 29, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

HORNELL, N.Y. -By the time Dave Brust’s Webster Yankees took the field Thursday night their playoff schedule was already written. With nothing to gain and nothing to lose, the Yankees could have fallen prey to complacency. Complacency would have to find another nest to roost in.

Webster tops Geneva in extra innings

July 23, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

GENEVA, N.Y. – No one can doubt the perseverance of Dave Brust’s Webster Yankees. Just one week ago, the 2010 version of the Yankees looked lifeless.  They were in the middle of a rough ten-game stretch where they lost seven. Maybe, the experience made the home nine stronger.

Comeback Kids Do It Again

(Webster, N.Y.) For the second time in three nights the Webster Yankees used late-inning heroics for a win. Chase Grissom (UNC-Pembroke) beat out an infield single and plated Matt Delewski (Toledo) with the eventual winning run as the Yankees knocked out the Niagara Power 5-3 in New York Collegiate Baseball League action at Basket Road […]

The Cardinals’ Favorite Cheese

April 22, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

I’m not sure if he listed it amongst his many cheeses during his picnic with Libby two weeks ago, but Hurley really should have packed what is quickly becoming the cheese in Cardinal Nation. Colby Jack. Colby Rasmus was the no-doubter Hero last night.  Two home runs, an early one to give the Cards a […]
