Baseball: Amity To Hand, “It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over”

The Amity Spartans hosted the Daniel Hand Tigers in Woodbridge on Monday April 17.

The game got off to a slow start and was scoreless until the bottom of the fifth inning.

Colin Beaulieu (#11) scored the first run of the game on Teddy Hague’s single.

At the top of the sixth, Amity was on top 1-0 and it stayed that way until the last inning.

At the top of the seventh, Hand put on its game face and got a couple of good hits in, and after tying with Amity, they had one opportunity after another and twice loaded the bases and managed to get two more runs, leading Amity 3-1.

The Tigers immediately began celebrating, and rightly so, believing they had broken the Spartans five game winning streak.

But wait! As Yogi Berra said, “It ain’t over till it’s over.”

With their opponents in the lead, the Spartans were feeling the pressure to excel. Andy Hague (#1) was first in the lineup. He hit a single and waited for Pat Winkel (#30) to move him forward. Winkel also hit a single and the game was on. Jack Nolan (#22) walked and with the bases loaded, every single action counted.

Max Scheps (#21) was next up, he smacked one out, but Hand caught it, and he was out, but not before Hague crossed home plate as Amity edged up on the Tigers 2-3.

At this point Hand changed pitchers from Michael Elias (#25) to #11 unidentified on their roster.

Rohan Patel (#18) was the first Spartan to face him, and after several fouls, Patel got a hit and brought in Winkel, Nolan followed and BAM, It WAS over. Spartans win 4-3.

Records: Amity 6-0, Hand 3-3

IMG_1955The Amity Spartans hosted the Southington Blue Knights for the CIAC Class LL Quarter-final in Woodbridge Saturday afternoon.

The teams seemed fairly evenly matched through the top of the fourth inning with great pitching on both sides. THEN Amity showed why they are Number 1 with four runs in the bottom of the fourth.

The Blue Knights managed to get one run in the fifth inning, but that was the end of it.

The Spartans picked up another run in the sixth inning and that’s all she wrote — Amity wins 5-1 and advances to the Semi-finals.

Amity will face New Milford at Muzzy field in Bristol Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

It must be hard being any other team than Amity right now.

How do you think the Stamford Black Knights reacted when they learned they’d be going up against the #1 Amity Spartans in the first game of the CIAC Class LL Tournament? My guess is “Oh #%&*!”

Stamford was good enough to get into the bracket, yet as Amity steamrolled them with one run after another on a hot, humid sunny Tuesday afternoon, they must have known that this was the end of the road by the second inning.

Amity easily won the first round 10-0.

This is not to say that the Spartans won’t take tomorrow’s game seriously — they want the title and they KNOW they CAN be beaten. — Cheshire handed them their one and only loss (4-3) of the regular season on Wednesday May 4.

Tomorrow, June 1, our Amity Spartans are back on the home field at 4 p.m. for the second round against Danbury. (Danbury defeated Manchester 12-2 in the first round).

It’s supposed to be cloudy, yet hotter. But if you love the Spartans, grab an umbrella or find a shady spot and come on out to Amity to cheer them on.

IMG_0876If you are an Amity Baseball fan, you most likely are familiar with Andy Hague.

The Spartan’s second baseman wears #1 on his jersey and was chosen as #1 (The MVP) in the SCC Championship game against Notre Dame West Haven today.

Hague and his brother Teddy #7 (a pitcher who also plays outfield), both juniors at Amity, have had a phenomenal year and fans look forward to seeing what they will contribute to the team next year.

Andy is a popular guy, always smiling and showing a positive attitude on and off the field, and the boy has skills!

Congratulations Andy Hague, this year’s SCC Ed Marocco Most Outstanding Player Award Winner. And thank you for an exciting regular season.
