For several years, since I began covering sports for Orange Live – and Yes, I know I’m still a bit oblivious about writing sports stories, but I have developed a pretty good eye at picking out the “star” players on different teams, just by watching the boys and girls during scrimmages.

One young man who’s impressed me for many years, during Amity and American Legion Baseball games, is catcher Pat Winkel.

He has natural instincts, speed, skill and an excellent swing, and after this weekend’s scrimmage games I wanted to write something about him. But I knew it wouldn’t do him justice after I read a wonderful write up on the Register’s Gametime Webpage about him.

Author Dave Borges did a phenomenal job highlighting Pat’s rise from a little league player to the dream prospect of becoming a Major League draft pick.

Read this excellent story HERE and share in the excitement of what may lie ahead for Orange’s hometown boy.

On Saturday, March 24, UCONN Baseball Tweeted:

“This kid is always smiling!

Note the names in the Starting Lineup. It’s Amity HS and Orange American Legion all over again with Chris Winkel on first and Andy across the way.

We’re so excited to see our Amity athletes make a name for themselves in college.

At Amity we knew Vinny Sienna as a nice guy, and a great baseball player with a passion for the game.

We followed him on Orange Live in 2012 from Amity through the American Legion Post 127 season.

He was the shortstop, #23, and just 18 years old.

He continued to make a name for himself playing ball for UCONN for 3 years.

A month ago, we published a story about the Mets decision to draft him.

And now, we’re proud to say that he’s already making headlines playing for the Class-A Brooklyn Cyclones.

Here’s the LINK to the story Newsday.

Ray Moquet shared this LINK of “the new kid” talking to reporters from YouTube.

Continued Success to you Vinny, make us proud!
