Congratulations to the Minor League All-Stars!

After thunder and rain chased players from the field Saturday night, the All Star game took place Father’s Day morning. The game was extremely competitive, ending in a 6-6 tie which made for a memorable Father’s Day. Special thanks to all the parents who got their girls to the field early on a Sunday morning!

Holmdel 8U Wins Division Championship!

The Holmdel boys travel baseball team won the 2017 8U Central Shore division championship! Holmdel finished the regular season 6-3 and received a 3rd seed in the playoffs. Their first game was against Cage Academy, whom they beat twice during the season (13-7 and 9-3). But this was not an easy victory. After trailing 5-1 in the bottom of the 4th inning, Holmdel put up 5 runs to take the lead for good, winning 7-5.

This never-give-up attitude and momentum was carried into the next round against second seeded Manalapan, a team Holmdel lost to earlier in the season 7-2. Holmdel scored 4 runs in the first inning and continued to pour it on with a 10-0 mercy win in 4 innings.

The Championship game vs. the number one seed Brick Bulldogs was a game of redemption as the Bulldogs beat the Hornets 9-5 in the regular season opener. Tension was thick as the game featured a few early lead changes but Holmdel pulled away with 5 runs in the 4th and in dramatic fashion closed the game with a bases loaded strike out winning the contest 12-6.

The coaches, parents and families are all very proud of the boys’ accomplishment and wish them continued success in the district tournament later this summer!

Great Comeback in Majors 1 All-Star Game

After trailing 5-1 Coach Schmidt’s team came back to tie it 5-5 in the 5th inning. Mikey Todisco had the game winning hit for Coach Reddy’s team in the bottom of the 5th inning to break up a 5-5 tie.
