In the 2nd inning, The D-Backs would get the offense in high gear, posting 10 runs, highlighted by Danny Leon’s 2 run blast over the left field wall. The D-Backs would go on to add a run in the 3rd, Ivan Asencion hit a long solo shot to add a run in the 4th, and 2 runs in the 6th to deliver the knock out. It was a balanced attack, with 12 different players collecting hits and 11 different players scoring runs. Jay Habacht at one point struck out 5 batters in a row, pitching 5 innings, 0 ER.

Coral Gables Athletics (Premier Division) 10 A’s Win 9th SFBL Championship
Miami Dbacks (Premier Division) 7  
Miami Dbacks (Premier Division) 2  
Coral Gables Athletics (Premier Division) 3 A’s Win 9th SFBL Championship


A’s Win 9th SFBL Championship
by Coral Gables Athletics (Premier Division)
Sunday saw two great games between the A’s and the Miami D’backs as both teams looked for to take home the Premier Division Championship. In Game 1 of the Best of 3 Series, the A’s jumped out early to take a 6-1 lead as they took advantage of some wildness from the D’backs starter and some timely A’s hitting. Key to early runs was a 2 run double from Eric Perez and an RBI double from Jose Martinez as well an RBI ground out from Siby Vizoso. With a 6-1 lead, the D’backs made a great comeback with a 5 spot in the bottom of the 7th as they took advantage of A’s wildness and 3 costly errors. The A’s answered quickly as Alvaro Gomez drove in 2 in a 4 run 8th inning rally to give the A’s a 10-6 lead for an eventual 10-7 win. The 4 run cushion would be more than enough for Alex Arteaga who was lights out in Game 1. Alex pitched 7 of the 8 innings (he left after 6 and then came back to close it) while striking out 9. Key contributors offensively were Gomez who went 2-3 with 3 runs scored and 2 RBI, Jose Marintez who scored twice and stole a base and Albert Jarines who scored 2 runs. Game 2 was also a nail biter as the D’backs took an early 2-0 lead and the A’s bats got cold after banging out 8 hits in game 1. But the A’s tied the game in the 6th with a big RBI single from Ariel Bello and Carlos Alvarez and then took the lead in the 7th when Gomez singled and then stole 2nd and 3rd base before scoring on a SAC fly from Eric Perez. This would be enough for the A’s as they held on for a 3-2 win and their 9th SFBL Championship!

The D-Backs hung tough and showed character, chipping away at the lead with runs in the 4th, 5th, 6th and 9th, but ultimately ran out of innings for an 11-7 loss. D-Backs pitcher Jay Habacht was hit hard, giving up 4 home runs and 7 earned runs in 4 innings. Mario Figueredo pitched well in relief – 4 IP, 0 ER, 5 K’s.

Player of the week Dave Jimmian pitching for The Monstruos


by Monster Mini Golf Monstruos (Senior Division)
The monster mini golf Monstruos made a HUGE statement in there sfbl debut. Beating the Broward Indians 22 TO 0. The Monstruos offense erupted for 16 Hits, led by Bory Rios who singled on his first pitch of every plate appearance ; Jorge Suazo supplied the power with a 1-hop opposite field double in his first at bat, and an absoulte BOMB of a homerun in his next at bat. The star of the game though, David Jimmian had one of the best performances in league history accounting for 8 of the Monstruos 22 runs (3for3 2B 5RBI 3Runs). While also pitching a complete game shutout only allowing 1 hit while striking out 13 in only 5 innings of the mercy rule shortened game (5.0IP 13K’S 0BB 1H OER).

Dade Tigers (Masters Division) 11 Tigers overcome injury to win their opener


Tigers overcome injury to win their opener
by Dade Tigers (Masters Division)
The Tigers opened up the season without their Ace Ryan Paylor who was out due to a dislocated left thumb. But pitcher Duniel Juan was more than ready to handle the task at hand – That is until he strained his hamstring in the first inning. The injury hindered his motion enough to walk 4 and give up 3 earned runs in 4 innings of work. But even with the injury Duniel was able to keep the Yankees to 3 runs while striking out 3 in 4 2/3 innings of work. Garvi Arias came in on relief and pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings giving up only two hits, 1 walk, and striking out 4. Yankees pitching kept the Tigers bats pretty quiet through 5 innings only giving up 4 runs. But in the 6th inning the Tigers blew it wide open with 6 runs – 5 of which came off of the bats of Duniel Juans 3 run homer followed by a 2 run home run later in the inning off the bat of Rene Orovio. The Tigers had a solid start to their season racking up 10 runs off of 16 hits. And the defense also pitched in with no errors throughout the contest. Next up the Tigers look to keep it going against an experienced Black Sox team that can score runs and has consistent pitching staff. Notable contributors for Dade Tigers: Jorge Castellanos 1-3, RBI, 2Runs, BB, SF, SB. Rene Orovio 1-3, HR, 2 RBI’s, BB. Garvi Arias 1-3, 2B, 1 RBI, BB. Ramon Poo 3-4, 2B, SB, 1 R. Duane Medina 2-4, 2B. Eddie Castellanos 2-3, 2 RBI’s, SF. Angel Estevez 2-3, 1 RBI, 1Run. Duniel Juan 1-3, HR, 3 RBI’s. Jonathan Silva 2-3.

Coral Gables A’s (Premier Division) 15 A’s win to start new season
Miami Dodgers (Premier Division) 2  


The A’s started the Spring 2013 Season with a 15-2 win over a short handed Miami Dodger squad.  The A’s banged out 14 hits as 5 different hitters ended up with multi-hit games.  The A’s were led by Ramses Tur who banged out 3 hits while driving in 2 runs.  Carlos Alvarez got the A’s going atop the lineup as he reached based all 4 times and scored twice while banging out 2 singles.  Siby Visozo also had 2 hits with a 2 run triple in the 7th.  Jose Martinez continued his hot hitting with a 2-2 day while Chicho Vengoechea went 2-3.  Leo Portes, Eric Perez, and Miguel Garcia all started the season with hits.  On the hill, Alex Arteaga went 5.1 innings to earn the win.  Alex went the first three before giving way to A’s newcomer Darryll Roque.  Unfortunately, Darryll tightened up and Alex had to come back in before giving way to Eric Perez who pitched the final inning.  All in all, a great start to the A’s season!

South Florida Beach Bums (Senior Division) 12 BEACH BUMS BATTLE TO 12-8 WIN OVER MONSTROS
Monster Mini Golf Monstruos (Senior Division) 8 Monstruos get put in there place.


by South Florida Beach Bums (Senior Division)
WESTON – The Beach Bums metal bat squad played well in its season opener of the SFBL by beating the Monstruos 12-8. The game went back and forth for the first 5 innings, with the Bums leading 9-8. But relievers Michael Jordan and Reed Alfieri combined for 9 K’s and allowed 1 hit in the final 3 innings. (Game ended after 8 inning due to the time limit). Bo Diaz went 2-4 with 2 doubles and 5 RBIs. Nick Kempen, who picked up the win, went 4-4 with a double and 2 RBIs. Jordan was also 2-4 with a double, 2 runs scored and a stolen base. Kendrick Douglas, who was playing in his first game in a few years, ripped a double in his first at bat. Jeff Adams, who also so live pitching for the first time in over a decade, singled up the middle in his first Bums at bat.
Monstruos get put in there place.
by Monster Mini Golf Monstruos (Senior Division)
After a highly talked about opening day, the Monster Mini Golf Monstruos get put in there place by the veteran South Florida Beach Bums. With the Monstruos playing in there first morning game it seemed like the kids were out a little late on saturday night. With only 10 of the 18 Monstruo players attending the game and 5 of them showing up minutes before game time you can tell the kids were not here to play Sunday. That transferred onto the field with 7 errors and 11 walks by there pitchers. Thus, In conclusion the Beach bums took advantage and jumped on a team who did not come out ready to play, and certainly did not live up to the hype.


Davie Tigers (Senior Division) 19 Opening Day Win for Tigers
Broward indians (Senior Division) 3  

Tigers Carlos Fernandez 2 run homerun 1st inning


Tigers Kevin Parsons on the mound


Tigers Gustavo Bordones slides into 2nd


The Davie Tigers would feast on the Indians 19-3 for the Opening Day win.  The Tigers would debut a revamped lineup with new players, Sal Rodriguez, Kevin Parsons, and Jay Auriemma contributing.  In the 1st inning, the visiting Tigers would explode for 6 runs.  Jose Castellanos, the veteran Tigers speedster, would get it started with a walk and a stolen base.  Adam Stramwasser batting in the 2 hole would also walk.  Jose would advance to 3rd on a wild pitch, setting up Kevin Parson’s 1st RBI as a Tiger.  Kevin, batting 3rd, would line a sac fly to right.  But it would be the big lefty, Carlos Fernandez that would set the tone for the rest of the order, going deep to right for 2 run HR.  Then with Ricardo taking a walk, newcomer and exciting young rookie Sal Rodriguez would rip a line drive past the second baseman’s head for an RBI double.  Tigers are excited about the young rookie, who is showing early signs to being a force in the lineup.  More good news for Tigers, as Marcel would make his return.  Marcel is a quality all around player and the Tigers are excited to have him back as well.  The Tigers would allow only 2 earned runs on the day, with Ray starting off strong, striking out 5 in only 3 innings of work.  Kevin would pitch next, and showcase a good fastball.  Marcel would finish off the game, going 2 strong innings, using a good fastball and slider to keep the Indians off balance.  Part of the success on the hill gets credited to Sneider Melendez, who called a great game behind the plate for the Tigers.  Tigers look forward to Sunday to keep the momentum going..
