Ouch! Another loss to Pequa! It was a 4-1 game heading into the 7th before my Mikey Boy got hammered. Massapequa put up 7 in the 7th to run away with the game 11-1. Our Freshman Phenom Roz pitched a great game. Kept the boys in the game. Let’s see if Angus can stop the bleeding tomorrow.

Meanwhile back in JV, Robbie continued his hot hitting. He was 2-3, BB, a double and an RBI. I am very proud of the way he’s handling himself. Win/Lose, JV/…[Read more]
