"1-2-7"

“1-2-7”

The American Legion Post 127 (19 and under) Baseball team has gotten off to a slow start.

With it’s first games (a double header) on Tuesday, June 14 against Stratford at Brinley Field in Orange, the team was four men down due to Amity High School’s post season obligations.

The first game at 5:45 p.m., had Stratford leading by 2 in the first inning and Orange tying things up in the second.

The score remained tied in the third with each team adding one run.

At 3-3 it was anyone’s game until Stratford pulled ahead with one final run in the fifth, ultimately winning 4-3.

Game two at 7:45 p.m. was drastically different.

Amity took a quick lead with one run in the first.

Stratford tied it up in the second then, kept going with one in the third, two in the fifth, and two in the seventh innings. Taking the second game 6-1.

The two teams met again on Thursday June 16 at Penders Field in Stratford.

This, too ended as a victory for Stratford 2-1.

Records: Orange 0-3; Stratford 3-0

Orange Roster

If the names on the Orange roster sound familiar, it’s because 11 of the players were on the history-making *2016 Amity Spartans Baseball team — some of them are even wearing their Amity numbers on their Legion uniforms.

*Chase Bursinski (25) outfield/relief pitcher, *Liam Butler (26) pitcher/third base, Lou DeGennero (7) second base/pitcher, Mike Ficaro (4) pitcher/third base, Dan Jaques (18) outfield/pitcher, Dave Kennedy (3) second base/relief pitcher, *Ben Lodewick (45) pitcher/left field, Ronnie LoRicco (6) outfield/pitcher, *Eli Oliphant (16) center field/pitcher, *Rohan Patel (15) pitcher/second base/third base, Doug Rives (22) starting pitcher, *Brian Ronai (8) short stop/starting pitcher, *Max Scheps (21) pitcher, *Al Smith (32) catcher/first base/pitcher, *Mike Stewart (10) pitcher/second base, *Chris Winkel (23) first base, *Pat Winkel (13) catcher.

Even though the first three games were unimpressive, we’re sure the boys will come together and things will pick up very soon. Legion is tough, a short season with lots of double headers — they’ll find their stride.

The boys have an extremely hectic schedule for the remainder of this season.

They have nine upcoming home games on Brinley Field at Old Tavern Park, so come cheer them on.
