Vinny Siena at 18 playing for Post 127 in Orange.

At Amity we knew Vinny Sienna as a nice guy, and a great baseball player with a passion for the game.

We followed him on Orange Live in 2012 from Amity through the American Legion Post 127 season.

He was the shortstop, #23, and just 18 years old.

He continued to make a name for himself playing ball for UCONN for 3 years.

A month ago, we published a story about the Mets decision to draft him.

And now, we’re proud to say that he’s already making headlines playing for the Class-A Brooklyn Cyclones.

Here’s the LINK to the story Newsday.

Ray Moquet shared this LINK of “the new kid” talking to reporters from YouTube.

Continued Success to you Vinny, make us proud!

IMG_6049Orange Post 127’s Doug Rives (22) pitched eight innings, but providing enough offense to notch a victory proved difficult Saturday, as Orange Post 127 fell to Hamden 2-1 in this post season game at Brinley Field.

Mitchell got the win for Hamden. He allowed one run over eight innings. He struck out 12, walked three and surrendered five hits.

Rives ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss.

Hamden closer Rodriguez put away the final three outs to record the save.

The game was never in doubt after the third, as Hamden scored one run on.

In the fifth inning, Orange Post 127 pushed across its only run of the day on an RBI single by Lou DeGennero (3).
