Jamaica Bay Softball LeagueWeek 4 Recap

By Matt Conklin

So week 4 in the Jamaica Bay softball league is in da books with still two undefeated teams in the daggers and mud sharks, and one team still winless.

The Daggers edged the Brewers 7-2. It was a close game until the bottom of the first when the Daggers got up to bat. If only the Healy’s Brewers played the way they hang out, they would be unbeatable.

The Mud Sharks defeated the Blackwater No-Shows 6-2. Bobby Steiner was voted best me-owww award by his team. I know they are undefeated but it looks like the heat is getting to them and we are only in mid-season. It was clutch hitting by Mike Waggs and strong defensive playing by the father and son duo of Jimmy and Steven Trudden. Grassy Point mercied the Cyclones 14-2. Grassy had alot of extra base hits, but it was the Cyclones play in the field that led them to another tough loss.

Despite all the errors, Marty Feeney had, Grassy Point still only had to play 6 innings to get the win. The Bungalow Gents defeated the 1 win Orioles, 12-4. It was a close game until the bottom of the eighth when the gents turned up the heat and started a base hit marathon.

It was gold glove material for Terrance Tubbs all day in the field and another horrible day for Captain Nix. I would like once again to thank all the spectators for showing support every week in the extreme heat.

On August 17, the league will have an all-star game played under the lights at the BCAC field. Each team will send 4 players to represent their team It will be the odds vs. the evens with details to follow for the game. The league also would like to remind all the teams that the John J. Monahan softball tournament is right around the corner.

The date is still to be announced.

The league would like all the teams to come out and show your support. Thank you and good luck.

The Jamaica Bay Little League standings: Mudsharks, 4-0; Daggers, 4- 0; Grassy Point, 3-1; Bungalow, 2-2; Orioles, 1-3; Brewers, 1-3; No-Shows, 1-3; Cyclones, 0-4.
