It’s been a long season, but we are almost there, the Amity Spartans Baseball team shut out Fairfield Ludlowe 12-0 today in Woodbridge.

It was like a nice autumn day up on the hill, windy and cloudy – perfect baseball weather. The only ones sweating it out were the Falcons.

The game got off to a slow start with no score in the first inning.

Second inning — Ludlowe failed to score again, but Amity came alive. Colin Beaulieu and Pat Winkel brought in runners on walks and Andy Hague brought one in on a single. 3-0 Amity

Third inning — 0 for Ludlowe. Beaulieu walked and Amity scored a run. Hague hit a two-run single, Jack Nolan hit a two-run triple and Max Scheps had a one-run single. 9-0 Amity

No action in the fourth.

Fifth inning — Nolan had a one-run triple and Scheps had a one-run single. (Somewhere in there another run came in). 12-0 Amity

And that was all she wrote, neither team scored after that and Amity advances in the tournament.

Athletic Director Ernie Goodwin tweeted: “Spartans win their 27th consecutive postseason game, head back to LL semifinals.”

The Lady Spartans ended their season today in Stamford, but they had a really good run.

Amity Shuts Out Sheehan

On Friday, Amity hosted the Sheehan Titans in Woodbridge.
Max Scheps pitched this one and did a fine job. The Spartans shut out the Titans 10-0.
In the first inning, the Titans’ center fielder went after a fly ball, hit the fence, and crumpled to the ground. His teammates, Amity players and the Amity trainer ran to his assistance as the left and right fielders yelled, “we need a towel!” The boy reportedly cut his face up, but never lost consciousness. He should be alright, and we wish him well.

Scoreboard

Sheehan 000 000 0  —  0   6 5

Amity       314  003 X — 11 12 0

The Amity Spartans traveled to Bristol to play in the CIAC Class LL semifinal game against New Milford on Tuesday night.

After a 35 minute delay due to rumbles of thunder in the distance, the Spartans were ready to play ball.

Max Scheps took the mound and did what he does so well.

The game was scoreless after the first inning.

At the top of the second inning New Milford’s Austin Swanson walked with bases loaded, putting the Green Wave on the scoreboard, 1-0.

The Spartans weren’t about to lose this game. In the second inning Chris Winkel scored before the New Milford players won the battle of a rundown with another Spartan. Amity gained a 2-1 lead.

Spartans fans held their collective breath at the bottom of the fourth with two outs and the bases loaded, yet the score stayed at 2-1 Amity.

Nothing changed in the fifth, so in the sixth, Scheps struck out three. Then it was Amity’s turn.  With two outs, pinch hitter Rohan Patel (who has always come through in a pinch) batted an RBI single — 3-1 Amity.

Eli Oliphant relieved Scheps on the mound in the seventh and Amity is headed to its fourth consecutive CIAC Championship game.

NOTES: Our tried and true Amity wiley wabbit Andy Hague had a nice move scooting by the catcher, dodging his tag and scoring a run for the Spartans.

The Winkel brothers continue to show their skills, both in position on the field and at bat. 

Every team needs a great shortstop and we’re fortunate to have Brian Ronai. 

With the talents of pitchers Max Scheps and/or Eli Oliphant, Amity may make CIAC history this weekend.

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.
