Bizarre Attempt To Dry A Ballfield

Yesterday (Saturday, April 7) The Amity Spartans Baseball team was waiting to play a game against Ridgefield at Governor Park when some “Einstein” came up with a solution to dry the muddy field.

Orange Live Posted the information on its Twitter Page around 3 p.m.

Here is a notice released by the town of Ridgefield on its Facebook Page later in the evening.

There has been an incident in town that we want to make citizens aware of. An RHS baseball game at Governor Park was delayed due to weather conditions on the field this morning.

A poor decision was made (and being looked into by the RPD) to “dry the field quicker” and 24 gallons of gasoline was poured and set on fire.

Thanks to the RFD, Peter Hill the Director of Public Works, DEEP, the RPD, and our Certified Spill Response Team for their incredible help. No one was injured and no one is in danger. The plan is to excavate the infield, place dirt in a safe container, and add fresh, clean soil to the field.

The game was postponed until 3:45 p.m. and both teams were bussed to Woodbridge where they played at Amity High School.

The Amity Spartans Boys Hockey Team attended its annual Banquet on Wednesday, March 27.

This event is an opportunity for the coaches and players to recognize their own for all the hard work they put in on the ice during the past season.

The Spartans made it into the states, but, like the girls’ team (which won the SCC Title) they were eliminated after the first round. We’re proud of the 2018-19 Spartans for all of their accomplishments and tip a hat to Head Coach Mike “Scooter” Richetelli and the assistant coaches for a job well done.

The following players were honored at the dinner.

The Hobey Baker Award for Character and Sportsmanship — Nelson Bordeleau #10

Most Improved Player — Justin Miller #4

Top Defenseman — Kenny Page #20

Top Offensive Player — Jason Csejka #18

Rookie Of The Year ‚— Caleb Marcin #6

Team Player: Unsung — Nelson Bordeleau #10

Bethany-Orange-Woodbridge Community ‚— Colin Hughes #8 and Ryan Miller #7

The Gerry Couden Coaches Award — Colin Hughes #8

Joey Ciancola Memorial Award — Kenny Page #20

We will miss the seniors: Csejka, Page, Hughes, Bordeleau, and Ryan Miller. But there is still a lot of talent to carry the team through next season.In
