Announcements

Thursday, December 11, 2014 - Our League and District Fund Raising and Field Operations Managing Director, Wayne Stem has been extremely busy trying to get our field the repairs and upgrades it so needs. As you all know, since this field has been built, there has been a constant drainage problem caused by water coming down the hill, over and underneath the parking lot and through the infield and out to left field and also through the Women's field. The left field foul pole is 6 feet lower then the right field foul pole. That's how much the field has washed away. No matter how much dirt/infield mix we put in, just washes away. We have been swimming against the tide since 2008. We cannot make ANY improvements to this field until we fix the water problem. Wayne Stem, has offered us his services and has several plans in place already. But he is one man and he needs all of our help. He is planning to hold a big meeting in January to explain everything to everybody and anybody that wants to know what is going on. he started this simple Fundraising effort yesterday and has already raised close to $1000. Please visit this site and see what you can do to help. One look at the photo below will tell you something has to be done and soon or this field will no longer be playable.

Men's League Awards and Accolades

MVP Awards:

A Division:
Brian Rorick, Charlie's Pizza - 6.0 (photo below)
Jason Rompola, K&C Insulation -  2.0

Brian Rorick is, as simply how many managers described him in casting their votes, a Stud. No matter where the ball is pitched, he can hit it hard and hit it out to all fields. And he did it 36 times this season, breaking the Heels Field Single Season Home Run Record. He carries himself with the same  dignity and class as his father Johnny did for years playing for Marchese Honda down at Weirman field "back in the day". Brian, who was an All-Philadelphia Area Pitcher from Archbishop Carroll in High School went on to Coastal Carolina for a season and then finished out his college career with Delaware where he averaged over 9 strikeouts per game.  Jason Rompola received  the other 2 votes. Jason led K&C with 22 HRs this year.

=======

B Division:
Al Fitch, Gibbons Legal - 6.0 (photo below)
Ryan Piercy, Depaul's - 1.0
Frank Kenny, Gibbons Legal - 1.0
Gus Sitsus, Facenda-Whitaker - 1.0

Al Fitch has always been a force on offense and defense, but since leading Gibbons to the State title last year, he has matured into a player that leads by example. Seemed every game, the top two guys would get on for Gibbons and Al would hit a missile somewhere and the score said 2-0 with him standing on second or third. And usually dirty from sliding. Was a big reason that Gibbons doubled their win output from last year to this year. And A little bit of history here: Last year, Al and his wife Tara, both won ASA state titles with their respective teams ... this year, Al and his wife Tara both were named the MVP of their respective leagues. Think about how many times that has happened. Fitch, who graduated from Kutztown University and led his team into the Division-II College World Series still is in the top-10 of every offensive category they have. Including Number 1 in hits. Powerful Ryan Piercy of Depauls received a vote for his torrid hitting all season. Frank Kenny of Gibbons received a vote with his incredible speed and all around excellence. And Pitcher extraordinaire, Gus Sitsus received a vote for his uncanny way of getting people to hit his pitch.
 

=======

A Division Manager of the Year:
Tim Bracken, Charlie's Pizza (photo below)
others with votes: Chris Smith (Bridgeport Bullies) and Steve Cutler (Paragon)

Last year, Tim Bracken led this team to a 3rd place finish in the B1 Division with 11 wins and this year, moved his team up to the A division because he knew they could compete. The eam started 0-8, and he kept his team focused and made them believe they can win in the Highest division in this league. They finished with a 19-8 run, clinching 2nd place and a bye. He told them they could do it. He's had a number of very good players who have other commitments and through it all kept a core group of guys together and continued to add players to the team. Tim is 28 years old  and actually a very good player, but coaches a softball team which he never plays an inning for unless 9 players show up. The idea of this league is to be competitive and bring together a group of guys to have some fun. It's about watching the game prior and hanging out after drinking some cold ones. Tim has managed to keep this team together over the past four years and I look forward to seeing how good they can really be.
 

=======

B Division Manager of the Year:
Tom Oshinsky, Nonna Rosa Pizza (photo below)
others with votes: Chris Carter (Depaul's), Steve Dimitry & Bobby Rodgers (Gibbons Legal)

Don't let that goofy look in the photo fool you, this guy is smart as a whip. He took a team that finished with the worst record in the league last year, winning only 2 games and then, this year, going through various lineup changes, he finally got the right combination of people in the right positions and made the playoffs winning 10 games along the way. Another manager who made his team believe they could win. It would not surprise me one bit to see them get to the finals.

=======

Sportsmanship Award
Mike Angelo, Depaul's
others with votes: Wayne Stem (K&C), Mike Romano (K&C), Ricky McMinn (Charlies' Pizza), Paul Corliss (3M), Heath Headerick(Norristown Rec), Steve Dimitry (Gibbons), Nick Zernone (3M) and Billy from 3M

When you see a guy week after week standing on top of the steps like the mayor as he greets everybody who comes up or down the stairs with the same smile. Whether his team wins or loses, he still has the same smile. The only guy I know that can throw a strike while laughing hysterically. Always end the game with a hug and a nice word for all. I am proud to call him a friend as he is one of the most positive guys in this league. He always seems to know what to say to make someone feel better. Look at the photos, he smiles at play, during games, dressed up, in a bar and only when he has run out of people to talk to, he takes a nap, then starts all over again,  Congrats Mike.

Silver Slugger Award
Vinny Catagnus, Angelo's/TNT
others with votes: Brian Rorick (Charlie's Pizza), Ken Shemonski (Paragon)
