Legion Baseball: An Incredible Slide — You Won’t Believe This!

At Monday’s first Legion Baseball game of a double header between Orange and West Haven, Devin Belenski slid into third in dramatic fashion.

He went right between the third baseman’s legs and when he did, instead of tagging him out, the player dropped the ball and Belenski was safe.

Here’s a gif of the slide from still shots that I took.

Organizers See Smaller Crowd, Still Pleased With Doc’s Race Participation

 Around Town, Charity Events, Home, Latest News, Sports, Today's Events  Comments Off on Organizers See Smaller Crowd, Still Pleased With Doc’s Race Participation

IMG_2398A Stamford teen wasted no time in crossing the finish line at Sunday’s Doc’s Race in Orange. For Gilmar Barrios, 17, there was no pressure as he rounded the corner into the Orange Fairgrounds for the final quarter mile of the 5K and won the race at 16:50.30.

Barrios was second last year behind Kyle Beaudette. 

Elizabeth Fengler, 19, of Wallingford repeated last year’s win as the first female finisher at 19:36.50 (11 seconds shy of her 2014 time)

The first Orange resident to finish was Anthony Tom, 14, with a time of 19:31.77.

Branford’s Don Osborne, 93, no stranger to Orange Road Races, finished at 63:45.96

One memorable runner was Orange Parks Dept Worker Chris Small, who ran with his 3 kids in a a stroller. They finished at 27:34.22

Race Director Joe Riccio said Orange has so many 5K races that it’s hard to get people to come out especially when they use the same route.

“I paid to have this route certified and everyone uses it,” Riccio said. “The Board of Selectmen approve any race that’s requested.”

He said runners don’t like participating in 5Ks that are close together on the same route, so if local races are going to be successful, they have to be well managed by experienced people, use different routes and spaced out so they can attract more runners.

Race Coordinator Jane Opper said she was happy with the turn-out, (about 200 participants), but a larger crowd would have been better for the cause. Doc’s inaugural race in 2013 had 353 runners; in 2014 there were 273.
