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!
Many Thanks to Former Commissioners Briamonte and Migliazza!
As incoming commissioners we are grateful to the many years of hard work that Chris Briamonte and Giovanni Migliazza have dedicated to
the softball program during their tenure. Without their commitment to softball, the recreation and travel programs would not be what they are today.
Yankees Game Day

of all, proceeds for this event benefit the Holmdel Travel Softball Program. Be sure to download the
printable registration form.
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!
