7U Hawks Win Glynn Kenny Fall Classic Championship
7U Hawks capped off a tremendous fall season by winning the
Championship game of the Glynn Kenny Fall Classic against a very tough
Bethpage team. Despite being shut out in the first game of the season
by Bethpage, the Hawks still led the league in scoring and went
undefeated for the rest of the season to earn the number 1 seed in the
playoffs and a first round bye. In the semi-finals, the Hawks found
themselves knotted up in a scoreless battle until the bottom of the 5th,
when the Hawks rallied for 3 runs and held on to beat Farmingdale 3-0
to advance to the Championship game. As in the regular season, great
pitching and defense and timely hitting won the game. In the
Championship game, the Hawks looked to avenge their only loss of the
season, which came at the hands of Bethpage. Bethpage put a run on the
board early, but great pitching and defense kept Bethpage at bay the
rest of the game. The Hawks scratched out a run in the third and fourth
innings and held on to an exciting and nail biting 2-1 victory. The
Hawks 7u epitomized the word TEAM the entire season, as every single
player contributed to this very successful season! Congrats boys! Your
coaches and parents are very proud of you!!
Rachel K Turns Unassisted Triple Play
On a warm early October afternoon the girls U8 Hawks faced off against
Bellmore during the East Meadow fall classic. Going into the bottom of
the 6th inning, with unlimited run potential for Bellmore, the Hawks were
ahead. Bellmore's first batter got a single. Their
next batter got a single and, with an error in the field, the runners
were able to advance to second and third. It looked like Bellmore
was not going to go down without a fight. The next batter hit a fly
ball in the gap between short stop and third base. The
base runners, thinking it would make it through the gap, began to advance
but NO, Rachel K, playing third base, snagged the ball and without
hesitation stepped on third base to force the advancing runner from third
out and make the unassisted double play. But
wait, she was not finished. Rachel then chased down the runner
advancing from second base to perform the rarest of all feats in
baseball/softball the Unassisted Triple Play at only 9 years old. That
play put an end to the inning and game for a Hawks victory.
