There is no denying that Coach Bob Mirto is beloved by the boys on his American Legion Post 127 Baseball team, we’ve seen it over and over again with each passing year.

So what do you give your coach for his birthday when it falls on game day? How about a big shut-out win!

Orange hosted Milford at Brinley Field Tuesday night (June 28) and, even though Milford played well, they couldn’t seem to catch a break and score.

Doug Rives had a very good evening on the mound for the hometown team.

Not that it was a walk in the park for Orange, but Post 127 did kick it into gear and racked up 10 runs in this 5 inning game.

After Orange celebrated its 10-0 shut-out victory, it was time to celebrate Coach Mirto’s birthday with cupcakes. (See VIDEO)

SAFE!

SAFE!

By Terri (I don’t write baseball stories) Miles

The first few minutes of the first inning at Monday night’s Legion baseball game between Orange and Milford was a great example of how the game is played.

First at bat was Keith Klebart who doubled with a fly ball to right field.

Next Jake Russo hit a fly ball to center field advancing Klebart to third.

Then Matt Ronai slammed a homer over left field and Klebart scored.

On the Milford side, the first two batters struck out, then Raccio hit a home run to left field, followed by two players batting singles, etc.

For a short time, Milford led the game in the second inning, but Orange quickly tied, then took the lead 8-6 in the third inning.

The game was suspended at the top of the fourth inning due to storms.

Keith Klebart was 3-3 with 2 doubles and 2 RBI. Matt Ronai was 3-3 with a home run and 4 RBI.

The game will be made up at a later date.

Orange plays Hamden tonight at 7 p.m. at Hamden High School
