Southern Yankees (Senior Division) 3 Fabulous performance by Southern Yankees Team
South Florida Beach Bums (Senior Division) 0 SOLID PITCHING NOT ENOUGH IN 3-0 LOSS TO YANKEES


Fabulous performance by Southern Yankees Team
by Southern Yankees (Senior Division)

On a perfect day @ the ballpark a gem pitching display by Franklin Brito was all the difference in a 3- zip shutout performance. Brito had the young South Florida Beach Bums team off balance all morning with an moving slider and fastball that had more velocity on it than previously shown. That along with a strong defense especially by Hugo Gutierrez @ second base led the Southern Yankees to a 3-0 victory. Brito pitched his best game ever; a dazzling 2 hit shutout as he struck out 10 South Florida Beach Bum batters in the contest. The 3 young hard throwing South Florida BB pitchers kept the Southern Yankees bats stifled throughout as they struck out 9 of the 11 batters they faced in the lineup & 10ks in total. They kept their team in the game in a closely played contest. The Southern Yankees were held to only 6 hits and the hitting star was Eric Judd who drove in all 3 runs with his booming bat. It was a hard fought battle and good luck to manager Charles Saro and his talented BB squad. You have assembled a great group of players who will go far once they learn that you have to get your rest the night before for these early morning games. A fabulous win for the Yankees as defensively we only made one error and showed that we can play small ball and win these types of games when we have strong pitching and good defense. We had a multitiude of these blessings on the field as we head into the Thanksgiving week bye. Please enjoy the holiday with your family, friends and loved ones and remember you all have what it takes. So after you have had your over indulgence of food and drink and hopefully have watched Thanksgiving classic- Babes in Toyland/March of the Wooden Soldiers; you will definately enjoy it & have a few laughs- especially the end! After that and lots of football, make sure you tell whoever is asking that YES you are STILL playing some of the finest most competitive amateur baseball in the country against 18 year olds and still holding your own. You will fondly remember these days on the ballfield in the future so continue to use the God given talents that you all possess and continue to play the game you love. We look forward to resuming the season on Dec 8th. In summary a great well played game by both teams. It was fun & thats what its all about! STAY THIRSTY MY FRIENDS!!


by South Florida Beach Bums (Senior Division)

www.southfloridabeachbums.com SFBL – The Bums pitching staff of Nick Kautz, Michael Jordan & Reed Alfieri combined for 10 K’s and allowed only 7 hits and 3 walks in their 3-0 loss to the Southern Yankees. The Yankees picked up 2 runs in the first inning and an insurance run in the second inning but that was all they would need on Sunday. It was the Yankees’ Franklin Brito that silenced the Bums’ bats. The only hits for the Bums came from the bats of JC Diaz and Danny Rodriguez.

Monster Mini Golf Monstruos (Senior Division) 10 Monstruo Philosophy!


Monstruo Philosophy!
by Monster Mini Golf Monstruos (Senior Division)

 With the Monstruos 10-0 victory lead by ace pitcher Dave Jimmian’s complete game shut out with 18 K’s, YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT 18 K’S IN 7 INNINGS! He only allowed 3 hits 0 BB’S and O HBP’S he also had a 4for4 performances at the plate with a couple of rbis. The Monstruos were lead by coach Gabriel Taveras. Taveras told reporters that small ball, stealing, and playing defense will always keep u in games, and lead u to victory. This same idea is brought about Taveras thanks to former high school coach of his Oddibee Mcdowell. Other contributors on the day were All stars Austin Sanchez who came in clutch with a 2 out double to clear the bases loaded, and Bory Rios with a 2 triple day, bumping his triple total up to 5. Coach Taveras says he loves his players, and will always go to war with them because these guys are starting to give 110 every day. It only gets better for the Monstruos from here! Dont forget to stop by Monster Mini Golf, and have the mini golf experience of your life time!

Red Sox Debut
by Magic City Red Sox (Masters Division)

 Finally got the first game in. It was a patchwork collection of Red Sox and more than a few us playing together for the first time. Kudos to Anton Bellamy, who led off the game with the Magic City Red Sox first ever hit. Anton would go 2 for 3 with 3 runs scored, a walk and an SB. Thanks to Omar and Beau Jackson, who lead the pitching staff despite not having pitched for 9 and 15 years respectively. Big contribution from Alex, who’s right field blast triple. Special thanks to Jay for his catching and on-field leadership. Yanks played a good game and were very patient taking pitches to the end. The outfielders stole the show with difficult catches all game by both sides.

Miscues = A Rangers Loss
by Miramar Rangers (Masters Division)

 Jaime Soto would take the mound today and pitch a terrific game against a strong Black Sox lineup. Unfortunately the infield let him down with many costly errors. We have to play better defensively if we want to win games. Notable mentions at the plate are Fernando Urtiaga and Jaime Soto who both went yard. Thanks to the Black Sox for good game and we look forward to meeting you guys again in the future.

Dade Tigers (Masters Division) 11 Tigers fall short in extra innings
Palm Beach Angels (Masters Division) 12 Angels Rally In 10 Inning Thriller


Tigers fall short in extra innings
by Dade Tigers (Masters Division)

 The Tigers led this one for most of the game but they could not overcome the 14 walks given up by 3 combined pitchers. The Tigers led 8-5 after 5 thanks in partly to a 2 run Home Run by SS Angel Estevez and a solo shot to center by 3rd baseman Garvi Aries. That lead held until the bottom of the 7th inning when Tigers pitching gave up a lead off walk, a single, followed by another walk which led into SFBL veteran Keith Nicolls hitting a 2 out, 2-2 count towering grand slam over the left field wall that made it 9-8 Halos. The Tigers answered right back in the top of the 8th with a 2 run Home Run off the bat of Alain Hernandez and reclaimed the lead 10-9. Things were looking good for the Tigers in the top of the 9th when Jorge Castellanos hit a two out rbi to make the game 11-9 and give the Tigers a much needed insurance run going into the bottom of the 9th. But the Tigers bullpen could not hold on. 3 walks, a single, and a passed ball was all the Angles needed to score the two runs that would send this one into extra innings. After the Tigers did not capitalize in their half the Angels did just that by drawing 3 walks in the bottom of 10th to win it. Walking in the winning the run is a tough way to lose but this was a great game between two heavyweights that did not disappoint – 23 runs, 4 Home Runs, 5 double plays, highlights everywhere, and extra innings…what more can you ask for! The Palm Beach Angels are a great group of guys and we look forward to our next meeting. The Tigers head into the All Star break atop the division with a 3-1 record but there is still plenty of baseball to be played…can’t wait! Notable performers for The Dade Tigers: Angel Estevez 1-4, HR, 2 RBI, SB, HBP. Garvi Aries 2-4, 2B, HR, 3Runs, BB. Alain Hernandez 4-5, 2B, HR, 3RBI’s. Jonathan Silva 3-4, 1B, 2B, 3B.
