Week # 2

Game #1:  Brooks: 9:30 AM  -CH-W vs RK

Chico's 6- Roadkill 4

RoadKill lost 6-4 as Road Kill hit into 3 double plays. Ernie Ley and trades
Shawn Pringle and Tome Wiker had big games for the GOLD!!!

Game 3: Win – 6-4 over Roadkill

Chico’s and the ‘Kill continued a young but storied rivalry at the brown tundra they call Neeta Field.  Neeta harnessed many towering shots which, at Brooks Field would have been HRs but only proved to be long outs.  Ex-kill player’s T-Wike and most recent cast off Shawn Pringle went a collective 4 for 6.  Jimmy Githens was nowhere to be seen in Right Center Field.  The game ended in a 6-4 slug fest and a near collision of Ditty and Bednar at home plate…Ditty must have missed the slide or veer language in the league rules memo.  Chico’s ended the day with their third team party.

Shawn Pringle earned the Game’s Sombrero.


Game #2:  Brooks11:00 AM  BC  vs CH-W

Game 2: Win – 26-17 over Blazing Cannons

The Blazing Cannons just wouldn’t role over.  This squad kept coming back like Rocky did against Apollo.  Chico’s pounded out hit after hit only to be matched by a Blazing Cannon squad that showed a lot of heart.  Unfortunately, Jeff Lillie showed up and struck out when the Cannons needed him most.  Said many of his Cannons teammates “Lillie sucks!”.  Chico’s got solid offensive production across the board from first year player Kevin Reilly and team vets John Hammond, Joe Urban and Jeff Clown Game Bednar.  Hammond, Urban and Bednar began complaining about their positioning in the lineup immediately after the game ended.  On the way to victory, Chico’s enjoyed a Bob Rothless dugout.

Brent Blanchard and Jeff Bednar shared this week’s Sombrero


Game #3  Neeta:  12:00 PM          AH vs SD-W

StewDoggz 25  After Hours 6
The StewDoggz came out on fire in this one, needing only 4 1/2 innings to take care of long time nemesis After Hours.  Looking to erase their miserable flame out from last season's playoffs, the 'Doggz were primed to do well to start this season on the right track.  They pounded out 27 hits in four turns at the plate, 21 of which were singles.  Stealing the show was lead-off hitter J-Bone going 4 for 5 with 3 homers, two of which were in the same inning, and the other being a grand slam.  Perfect days at the plate were turned in by Big Al (5 for 5, 4 runs), Coach Voo (5 for 5, 6 rbi's), and Kender (4 for 4, 3 runs, 3 rbi's).  Schaeff picked up the win with a solid game on the mound.


Game #4  Brooks:  12:30 PM   VI vs FL-W

The first pitch of the 2005 champs was met by the bat of Jeff Uccello which proceeded to quickly leave the park and start a 31-8 beating of Vandelay.  Newly aquired DJ Brown, with hangover in toe...went 4-4 scoring 4 runs.  The MVP of the day was another newcomer to the team Bob Buchannon who went 4-4 with 2 Hr's and 6 RBI's.  Flanagans Added Hr's by Eric Brady and Dennis Finizio.


Game #5  Brooks:  2:00 PM      RK-W vs PM

Road Kill scored 7 times in the first 6 more in the 2nd to post a 20-1
win over Pogue Man called after 5. Ditty took the win with a fine
effort. New addition Bill Steffan was just one of the many who had a
multiple hit game. Fred Tucci was just as brilliant at short in the
second game as he was in the first.


Game #6:  Brooks: 3:30 pm        AB vs FC--W

First Class - 22
ABCO - 10
Stats of note:
Darren Smith - 1.000  
Troy Chenier - 1.000    3 doubles

Chet Beaston - 1.000


Game #7:  Brooks: 5:00 pm       SS-W vs GE

Grand slam - John Rath

Dave Getchel
hit for the cycle...


Week # 3

Game #1:  Brooks: 9:30 AM   BC -W vs AH 

The Blazing Cannons dominated After Hours 14-3. The defense was tight, turning 2 double plays, and Tom "Rain Man" Healy pitched a stellar game. Rob "Scandal" Countess and Lou Stephan had big hits for the Blazing Cannons.


Game #2:  Brooks11:00 AM  AH vs SS-W

Stand came from 9 runs down in the first inning to win 28 to 20 over After
HRs - John Rath (2)
Doubles - Ron Kornafel (2), Drew Wagner (2)


Game #3  Neeta:  12:00 PM          VI vs RK-W

Probably the most exciting game of the day. Newcomer Bill Steffan's hit
a 2 out walk off 3 run homer in the bottom of the 8th for the 17-16 win
over Vandelay the team that knocked Road Kill out of last years playoffs.
Paul Columbus 2 out 2 run homer to center field send the game into extra
innings tied at 14. The ball continued to travel well??? As Vandelay
connected for 3 home runs themselves. Pitcher Cahill now leads the
league ERA with a stellar 22.67.


Game #4  Brooks:  12:30 PM   GE vs FC

No details as of yet.....


Game #5  Brooks:  2:00 PM      SD vs BC

StewDoggz 15  Blazing Cannons 11
The StewDoggz led this game from start to finish, but the Blazing Cannons kept it close the entire way.  The game featured many bloops and blunders, mostly by the 'Doggz who were feeling the effects of Kent's bachelor party from the night before.  Reports of a puke bucket being located at first base cannot be confirmed.  Highlights for the 'Doggz included homers by Big Al and two by Schaeff.  However, rumor has it that those two were MIA during several rounds of shots the night before.


Game #6:  Brooks: 3:30 pm        PM vs CH-W

Game 4: Win – 18 – 2 over Pogue Mahon

Chico’s put on a first inning clinic with four straight home runs.  Josh Federovitch led the squad with 2 HRs, T-Wike and Pringo went yard while Freakshow had his former Stew Dogg teammates salivating at his tape measure shot into the top of the trees in Right.  Wild Turkey and Rag Top combined for the win.  Pogue Mahon pitcher Jeff Fitzpatrick pitched a solid game with a broken back to boot.  Greg Smith continues to shine as Chico’s short stop while the team continues to show no sign of short fall since last year’s departures.

Josh Federovitch earned his first Sombrero


Game #7:  Brooks: 5:00 pm       FL-W vs AB

Flanagan's kept it going with their bats beating ABCO 25-8.  Hr's were had by Dennis Finizio, Lane Lundberg, Jeff Uccello, Bob Buchannon, Chris Cavanaugh and a 400 ft shot over the backstop in center field by Eric Brady. Even Eric was surprised about that one... DJ Brown and Greg Armbruster kept their hitting streaks going with both 4-4.

Rob Weber led Flanagan's to a 23-16 win going a perfect 4-4.  Pitching was tough due to wind and Flanagan's saw them selves down 8-2 in the second.  Dennis Finizio went yard twice, while Chris Cavanaugh had a 3 run HR.    Infield defense by Lou Salvatore and Eric Brady along with relief pitching team of Joe Schlindwein and Jack Schaub helped Flanagan's notch their 3rd win and stay undefeated at 3-0.

Game #6:  Brooks: 3:30 pm        RK -Wvs GE

Week 4 Road Kill pounded out 27 hits in a 22-7 win against GE. Tucci was
a perfect 5-5 while Bill Steffan connected again. Wayno finally showed
up for his first game and collected 3 hits as Road Kill won its 3rd
straight. Ditty posted his 2nd win of the season to go along with 3
hits. KJR hit his first and went 4-5. Another fine defensive effort by
all of Road Kill closed this game out in 5 innings.



Game #7:  Brooks: 5:00 pm       AB vs CH

Game 5: Win – 33-11 over ABCO

Chico’s bats came out alive against a young ABCO team with a bright future.  ABCO is not a team to be taken lightly.  Chico’s was led at the plate by Ernie Ley and Kevin Reilly each going 5 for 5, Brent Blanchard and Rick Clifford both 4 for 4 and a Shawn Pringles Home Run on a wind swept Sunday matinee at Brooks Field.  Ernie Ley took the hill for 5 strong innings when coach Wiker went to the Bull Pen where Bill “Wild Turkey” Aldridge came in to close the game with 2 strike outs and solid fielding up the middle.  John Hammond continued his hot streak with a 3 for 4 day keeping his average at a respectable .636.  Hammond celebrated the day with a large Riviera pizza and a Happy Meal.

Kevin Reilly and Bill Aldridge earned this week’s Sombrero.


Week 5

Game #1:  Wilson 12:00 Noon  CH -W vs GE

Yesterday: Chico's Won vs. Gemco in makeup game from Week 1.  Score 28-2

“Gemco and Chicos made up their Week 1 rain out on Sunday afternoon at Wilson Field.  Chicos came out hitting led by Cregg Angstermeister who hit 5/5.  Jeff Bednar & Bill Aldridge each went 4/4 while Brent Blanchard went 4/5.  Team Gemco made some nice grabs at 3rd base and Shortstop but the Chicos onslaught proved to be relentless in this four inning game.  The Chico’s team Sombrero goes to Craigg Angsteestimiseter for his 5/5 performance at the plate while Bill “Wild Turkey” Aldridge fell just short of the coveted Mexican lid with a stellar pitching performance.”

Game 2:  12: 00 at Neeta

SD - W vs PM-

StewDoggz 23  Pogue Mahon 2;  5 innings
The StewDoggz were looking to erase the memory of the last game they played, a loss to Vandelay two weeks ago.  They did just that by coming out with a 10 run first inning and never looking back.  Kent was back on the hill and earned his first win of the season, while going 4 for 4 with 2 doubles and 5 rbi's at the plate.  Another perfect day at the plate was turned in by the "Animal" Aaron Harty, going 3 for 3 with 4 runs scored.  Home runs were hit by Schaeff, Larry Collins, and "Hot Sauce" Billy Sutphin.  Oh, and the big gun Schaeff got caught looking in this one too.


Game #3:  Brooks: 9:30 AM   re-scheduled for 1:30 at Neeta

PM vs VI-W 9-8 No details as of yet.....


 Game 4:  Brooks 11:00 am      AB vs RK-W

Week saw Road Kill win its 4th straight to go to 4-1 for the year with a
15-7 win VS the new kids. Cheapo hit his first homer in over 3 years in
a 9 run third to blow this game open. Tucci, Steffan and KJR continued
their hot bats collecting 8 hits driving in 7. Tim Dean was a perfect
3-3. Road Kill finally had its whole team there.

Game #6  Brooks:  2:00 PM   CH vs SD- W

StewDoggz 18  Chico's 9
The StewDoggz and Chico's hooked up for the latest edition of their stirring rivalry.  Meeting three times during the last two playoffs, and a history of down-to-the-wire drama between the two, had both teams fired up going in.  The 'Doggz began the festivities with their own version of a "shotgun start", as each member shotgunned a beer before the game started.  With beer on their jerseys, they took the field and promptly gave up 6 runs in the top of the first inning.  So much for that, but the new tradition apparently will continue.  Although they got down early, the 'Doggz didn't put their heads down, but instead kept chipping away back into the game with a steady few runs every inning.  They had it tied up after three innings and broke it open in the fifth and sixth, taking a commanding 9 run lead.  Stellar defense and steady hitting got the StewDoggz their 4th win of the year.  Larry and Hot Sauce had perfect days at the plate, going 4 for 4 and 3 for 3, respectively.  J-Bone hit a key two-out, 3 run homer early in the game, and Schaeff connected with a rocket into the trees for his 7th dinger of the year.


Game #7:  Brooks: 3:30 pm      FC vs FL  Flanagan's won 19-2

Chris Cavanaugh lead the undefeated Flanagan's to its 4th win of the year going 4-4. DJ Brown now bating only a .933 for the year went 3-4 as did Lane Lundberg, Rob "I'm expecting again"  Weber and Dennis "2 HR's today" Finizio. Gregg Armbruster notched his first win while Eric Brady came in for the save.

Week # 6


Game #1:  Neeta at 12:00       FL -Wvs GE

No details as of yet.....


Game #2:  Brooks: 9:30 AM  GE vs VI-W

GE vs. VI (VI wins 16 - 11):

In a heart- (and shoulder) breaker,
Geneco comes close to it's second franchise win in its sophomore year in the league dropping one to Vandelay 16 - 11.  The turning point came in the second inning when a rally was cut short by an injury to the talented left-fielder Van Kapagian who dislocated his shoulder sliding into the freshly turned dirt at third base.  While being wheeled off the field, Van was heard to say "a bunch of guys jumped me honey" to his wife Dana.  Vandelay took advantage of the situation by scoring 10 runs that inning.  Geneco rallied once again in the 6th with 6 runs coming up a few short of the win.

Chris Collins goes 4 for 5 with a triple
First time pitcher Kevin "I'm not the coach" Donnellan goes 3 for 5 with a HR
3rd Baseman Paul Cavicchia
also homered
Van was 2 for 2 before being accosted by the ground.

Game #3:  Brooks11:00 AM    AB vs SS -W  23-3



Game #4  Brooks:  12:30 PM    FC vs SD

StewDoggz 12  First Class 4
This game was a bit of a snoozer as neither team hit the ball all that well.  The StewDoggz got up 6-0 after three innings, but First Class cut the lead in half in the top of the fourth.  A four-run fifth inning gave the 'Doggz the breathing room they needed and closed it out by a score of 12-4.  The Big Voo notched his second win of the year with a well pitched game.  In a homerless game, the offensive stars for the 'Doggz were J-Rod, "Hot Sauce" Billy Sutphin, BA, Aaron "Sausage" Harty, and this year's newcomer "Crackhead" John Demski, all of which went 3 for 4 at the plate.

Game #8:  Brooks: 5:00 pm     PM vs AH

It was a touchy game today with After Hours and Pogue Mahon.  Final score was 11-7 going to After Hours.  The funny thing about the four run win is that with one of their rallies a slide veer rule that we called on a play was ignored by the pompous After Hours squad that allowed a rally to continue.  The offense was committed by Mark Caira pinch running for Pete the pitcher.   And a second offense was committed by Mark Matteson who left second base and didn’t tag up because he saw the runner from first coming into second without tagging up as well on a fly ball that was caught, again allowing a several score rally to continue unjustly.  Pogue Mahon is a fun team that rarely gets serious about “winning” a game but this one was seriously stolen by After Hours and I hope they choke on the victory because it is a hollow, unrighteous and undeserved one at that.  I’m embarrassed to have assembled guys who want to have fun and subject them to such egregious treatment.  Congratulations After Hours.


Week # 7

Game #1:  Neeta at 12:00       PM-W vs FC

It was a tight game all the way through to the end.  Final score was Pogue Mahon 8 and First Class 7.  It was great playing on both teams and a fun environment to spite the heat.  Thanks to FC for a great game.

to post a 12-6 win. Bill Steffan hit his 5th of the year. Another strong
team defensive effort led by Gold Glove Tucci and Clarkie helped keep
First Class in check. 5 runs in the 5th highlighted by Steffans's 3 run

Game #4  Brooks:  12:30 BC vs VI-W

VI looking to procure a much needed win turned to new pitcher Jerry for some divine intervention. Striking out 4 batters and being only a double short of the cycle, Jerry made his presence known in the second with a grand slam. Rookie John Crain playing his first game at third made some remarkable plays and went 2 for 3 on the day. The Cannons defense and bats stayed with VI tying it up in the top of the 7th. With a runner on first and the speedy Otis "Ping" Nixon on third the Cannons elected to pitch to Ross Stearn instead of loading the bases and forcing a play at the plate. The plan backfired as Ross sent a shot over the outfielder in left center winning the game. After walking 3 times, former coach Pete Bisconti was overheard saying "If I don't get a pork rind deal put into my contract this bat doesn't leave my shoulder". With only one week left in the regular season Vandelay Industries hopes to have all it's big bats available for the playoffs.

Blazing Cannons tied it up in the bottom of the 7th with a 13-13 game.  The 7th was scoreless for both teams.  The 8th inning brought back the bats of Flanagan's putting up 7 runs that was highlighted by a Bob Buchannon Grand Slam HR into the right field trees. Final 20-13.


Game 6B  3:30 Neeta.... SD -Wvs AB at 3:30 at Neeta.

StewDoggz 15  ABCO 11, 8 innings
The smell of upset was in the air for this game.  The StewDoggz were less than sharp for most of the game, and the young up-and-comers from ABCO were taking advantage.  They led for most of the game, which was closely contested throughout.  Back to back homers gave ABCO their first lead in the bottom of the 2nd inning and they kept the pressure on the rest of the way.  The 'Doggz were down 11-7 through 5 innings, but cut it to a one-run deficit going into the seventh.  With two out, a man on second, and down by a run, the StewDoggz were down to their last out, when the Big Voo stepped to the plate.  A base hit tied the game, and a scoreless bottom half sent the game into extra innings.  In the 8th, the 'Doggz took control finally, with a 2-run home run from newcomer John "Crackhead" Demski capping a 4-run inning.  ABCO was shut down in the bottom of the 8th, sealing the StewDoggz come from behind victory.

Gamer 4a  VI -W vs ABCO

After using pizza boxes and Cd cases at Wilson field, VI was glad to have
real bases for their 3rd game of the day against ABCO. The zany cats at
Vandelay decided to put in their 5th different 3rd baseman of the year Geno
Bisconti to see if his glove was as quick as his mouth. (mouth won) VI came
out with a great defense allowing only 3 runs behind pitcher John Crain. The
outfield anchored by Bob Nixon didn't allow anything past them. Ross Stearn
led the team with a few hits including a triple and prayed to the softball
Gods for forgiveness after taking a walk for the second time in his
lifetime. Vandelay Industries kept the game in hand never allowing ABCO
get anything started. VI won the game but the score was so unimpressive no
one remembers what it was.


Game #4  Brooks:  12:30 Noon   VI -W  vs AH

VI beat After Hours    13-7

  With a hot humid day in the forecast Vandelay Industries decided to play
three games. With no extra guys and no break between games they also decided
to play on 3 different fields. Vandelay took on After Hours for game #1 and
started off hitting right away, with 5 straight hits and a key 2 out single
by Chris Koreck VI took a 5-1 lead in the first. The Bisconti brothers
combined for 5  hits on 7 trips to the plate with Pete earning his 43rd walk
of the season. After Hours kept chipping away at VI's lead and scored 6 runs
in two innings making the game close. Stace McDonald (who played nicely with
others) hit a 2 run double in the 5th gave VI a little breathing room. More
2 out RBI hits came from Pete and Geno Bisconti and Steve Cook. Rookie
Pitcher John Crain held the After Hours squad to only 7 runs and gave up
only 18 in his 3 game span.


Game #5:  Brooks: 2:00 pm     RK-W  vs SS

Road Kill's bats finally came alive as they squeaked out a 13-12 win
over Sand Stand to finish the regular season 8-3. Ditty's clutch 2 out
hit in the top of the 7th was the difference. Rolls, KJR, Wayno and
Steffan all had multiple hit games. This game saw the brief relief
appearance of Bob Roth who walked 4 in a row as Road Kill put 8 on the
board in the 5th to give them a 9 run cushion.
