Jamaica Bay Softball LeagueWeek 2 Recap

By Matt Conklin

Ok, so week two of the Jamaica Bay Softball League is in the books. The league has two undefeated teams so far ... but let’s see how long that will last.

Game one consisted of the toughest grudge matches on the peninsula featuring the Brewers vs. the Orioles. We don’t know what happened, nor can we explain it, but the Orioles won a game. Sean O’Connell said it was a glorious day for his team and quoted “it must be the end,” the orioles won a game.

The last time they won a game was a pick-up game behind P.S. 47. I think they played the 10-year-old girls team. The daggers squeezed by the bungalow gents. They went 11 innings for the win.

If only Steve James had listened to his coach, and if Tim ‘Sippy’ Nix didn’t buy a new glove with a hole in it, but hey you never know.

The Blackwater no-shows had a tough time against Healy’s Cyclones that, too, went extra innings. The Cyclones were speechless as they watched the Russian Rocket out-pitch them. I asked James Kalisak about the game, but he replied, ‘no comment’ … lol.

It was the Bay View Mud Sharks defeating Grassy Point team. Grassy P oint team captain Mikey Fatts said he didn’t know what happened, but he wanted the other team tested. Tested for what he didn’t know. Bobby Steiner played the best game of his career at first base and said he wanted a new contract. I heard later that day he was traded to the Orioles for Jimmy Whalehead.

Johnny Conklin, number 2, had a day at the plate giving Grassy Point their only two runs.

I am asking all the captains to email me details about their games and that all teams go back and support the hosting bar for that week.

The Jamaica Bay Little League standings: Mudsharks: 2-0; Daggers: 2- 0; Orioles: 1-1; Brewers: 1-1; Grassy Point: 1-1; Blackwater: 1-1; Bungalow Gents: 0-2; Cyclones: 0-2.
