Game Recap-
Wii Not Fit jumps out to a fast 7-1 lead as Eddie Davis drives in 4 runs his first 2 at bats. The running around the bases was put to a halt possibly due to the fact that they may have warned us with their name about being out of shape. Just weren't fit for this match up with The Misfits who found their way to their first victory of the season. Wii Not Fit likes to keep us entertained making sure every game thus far comes down to the last at bat. Very suspenseful. The Misfits pitcher Tony Ray did call out before the game that he was going to strike out Darnell Coley and he delivered on his word. Pirincci and Mutter keep their hot streaks up. Carabello/Williams defeat Cooper. Wii Not Fit (2-1) takes on 97 Rock (2-1) next week Wednesday at 6pm then Wii Not Fit (2-1) will complete their double header at 8pm against The New Batavia Softball League's Slapnut Magoos (0-3). The Misfits (1-2) look to build off their momentum in a tough matchup against Andrew Steinbrenner's Allstate (3-0) team at 7pm. Kibbe Park is where it's all at...

Game Recap-
TF Browns Blind Squirrels scored every single inning, problem is that it wasn't enough nor did they remember how to field a softball in many innings. Turned into a chippy game among many friends due to the first real adversity that Andrew Steinbrenner's Allstate have faced all season. If you tuned into this game you could see the hedging excuses building up. Unfortunately for the Blind Squirrels Spurling and Maurer show their leadership to get their team back to focused, eliminating whining as they turned an 11-7 hurdle into an 18-11 lead. Remember page 46 of your certified rule book that our U.S.S.S.A fully certified umpires have gone by for decades has stated 2 bases on all overthrows. Defined on page 1 of the extra set of rules, rule number 8 broken down and pretty much defined to a T. They'll face each other week 7 in what may be another football score. Taylor Maurer and Brandon Spurling drive in 7 of the 21 runs scored, handing out insurance that the Blind Squirrels will continue their 2 game losing streak. Andrew Steinbrenner's Allstate (3-0) will face The Misfits (1-2) at 7pm while TF Browns Blind Squirrels (1-2) will be up against The Gallaghers (2-2) at 9pm eastern standard time…

Game Recap-
Things fell apart for The Gallaghers come the 3rd inning and 6th inning as 97 Rock(s) around the bases for their 1st of two 5 run rallies. Nate Cummings finally delivers what may be his first two career extra base hits as Doug smiles like the proud father he is witnessing that. Could possibly be once in a lifetime. 97 Rock chases home plate many times chasing away The Gallaghers from Showtime sending them to Netflix. Pretty even matchup here. Was more entertaining watching this game than watching the Mets recently. The Gallaghers (2-2) will face the TF Browns Blind Squirrels (1-2) at 9pm next week, while 97 Rock (2-1) will be up against Wii Not Fit (2-1) at 6pm to start the night off…

Game Recap-
The game started off fairly well for T.N.B.S.L. Slapnut Magoos as they put up a 3 spot with Cone and Rascoe driving in the runs. They would only allow 2 with each Sauka delivering an rbi. But after being down 3-2 after the 1st inning The Gallaghers came alive with every single player bringing in at least 1 run. Tom Sauka brings in 4 while going 4-4 at the plate and Vasi has a career night getting 3 hits and driving in a pair. T.N.B.S.L. Slapnut Magoos are making strides as they lasted 6 innings in this one. T.N.B.S.L. Slapnut Magoos (0-3) face Wii Not Fit (2-1) at 8pm as The Gallaghers go on to face TF Browns Blind Squirrels (1-2) at 9pm next weekWednesday weather permitting. We'll see if mother nature holds off her onslaught...

J. Burdick 1-2
Game Recap-
How does one approach this write up? We'll go with the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly for this one. The Good- everybody aside from Pat Fava delivered an rbi for Fava Brothers Lawn Care. Everybody besides Pat Fava and Rodriguez drove in 2 runs. McMurray and Phil Fava have their career season totals alone on this night. Bill Fava shows he's still got it as well. For the TF Browns Master Batters the good was they showed plate discipline loading the bases on walks to start the game as B. Adams delivers a 2 rbi single to start off on the right foot...
The Bad- TF Browns Master Batters strand 8 men on base. Have to bring those runs home when you have your chances. They could never stop the bleeding or catch their breath after the first gut punch. For Fava Brothers Lawn Care there wasn't much. Just some walk issues and Pat Fava ending the innings not once, but twice with soft outs. Bat please!
The Ugly- poor Steven Curry pushed into playing out of position at 3rd base fields a grounder and uncorks a throw that cracks Joe Muoio in the skull as the ball and Joe's head get better acquainted. Curry feels bad to this minute but Muoio did pass the league's concussion protocol to finish this game out...
Fava Brothers Lawn Care (2-1) take on the surprising U.S.P.S. (2-1) at 7pm in a rivalry game from last season as U.S.P.S. swept them. TF Browns Master Batters (1-2) will face Cummings/Lee (2-0) at 9pm as long as the weather cooperates next week Thursday night…

Game Recap-
This game turned out to be the showcase game of the night. Tied 4-4 most of the game until Khalid drives in Burrow to give the U.S.P.S. a short term lead because in the bottom half of the 5th Radka smacks a leadoff double with Midget driving him in to even the score at 5-5. No action in the 6th inning. Top half of the 7th the old timers get 3 straight singles from the top of thier order while down to their final out. Big Sean delivers via special delivery a bases clearing go ahead double deep to left center field. Bud leads off the bottom of the 7th with a single, but Bieber on the mound would allow no more as the U.S.P.S. stuns us all defeating TF Browns Beers N Bombs 8-5. U.S.P.S. (2-1) takes on Fava Brothers Lawn Care (2-1) next Thursday at 7pm while TF Browns Beers N Bombs (1-1) face TF Browns Commissioner's Crew (2-2) at6pm…

Game Recap-
TF Browns Commissioner's Crew implodes late game. The bat was too heavy to swing for Jamil as he watches a strike 3 nick the inside of the mat deep. Leading 8-6 entering the 6th inning, nothing goes right for TF Browns Commissioner's Crew after the umpire does not do his job properly, pausing the game for minutes whining to a player in the outfield to save him from words that he apparently doesn't even hear. The home team literally gets amnesia when it comes to winning a softball game in this match up. Some how Coffta finds a power stroke and just takes the cover off of the ball with 2 triples! If you missed it in this one, you missed his career game here. Could have been an even bigger blowout had the mercy rule not kicked in. Cummings/Lee (2-0) has a double header next week weather permitting as the start off against Balls Deep (0-3) at 8pm. Following the conclusion of that game facing TF Browns Master Batters (1-2) at 9pm. TF Browns Commissioner's Crew (2-2) square off against TF Browns Beers N Bombs (1-1) at 6pm…

Game Recap-
 
Balls Deep immediately responds to TF Browns Commissioner's Crew's initial charge matching 5s in the first inning. The wheels would soon fall of for the home team though they showed no quit at all. Improving drastically and showing promise for future weeks to eventually sneak into the win column. Dougherty, Czworka, and Canada's own Richard (Ree-shard) Lundy (Loon-day) all can't be put out in this one. Work to do for Commissioner's Crew as the road doesn't get any easier coming up. One more note, the umpire Russ loses his mind yet again so he loses his job. He can go spend money and golf Thursday nights instead of making money. The ejection won't count against Balls Deep for tie breaker purposes. After review it's been rescinded and the umpire is permanently ejected from this league. TF Browns Commissioner's Crew (2-2) will take on TF Browns Beers N Bombs (1-1) at 6pm while Balls Deep (0-3) plays Cummings/Lee (2-0) at 8pm.

Batavia's two girls 12U fast-pitch softball teams got to play for the first time yesterday on the field at Genesee Community College, which Coach Matt Landers said was a real treat for the girls.

Sophia Papponetti got the win on the mound for the Batavia Black squad, with Emma Bigsby taking the loss Batavia Yellow. Landers said it was a close game until the sixth when Batavia Black broke open the game to secure a 19-11 win.

Neither team played to the level of their potential tonight as Wii Not Fit wins again 8-7. Dowling hits a walk off blast to break the 7-7 tie in the bottom of the 7th after D. Coley pulls himself during clutch time after his 0-2 night at the plate in prior at bats. Jamil let his team down at the plate big time tonight, owes his team after this loss in a friendly rivalry game. Very tight game all the way through. Wii Not Fit (2-0) faces The Misfits (0-2) at 6pm next Wednesday night at Kibbe Park in Batavia….

Recap- The Misfits struck early with Steven Curry adding to his league high taking walks total. In the first inning Dio and Ayers each drove in 2 out runs. They unfortunately started to fade away as The Gallaghers started to steam roll. Top through bottom they just kept torturing the ball. TJ Sauka with a career game looked like with his 6rbi. The Gallaghers (1-1) have a double header next Wednesday starting at 8pm against 97 Rock (1-1) and then following at 9pm against The New Batavia Softball League sponsored Slap Nut Magoos (0-2). The Misfits (0-2) hope to rebound against the gritty team called Wii Not Fit (2-0) at 6pm. All games at Kibbe Park….

Recap- Watching this game what comes to mind for the Slapnut Magoos was that they may actually be a team full of Mr. Magoos. I now know why they coined themselves what they did. It was their first game of the season but they had to have been using rusty bats or something in this one. The game was close before the first pitch was thrown at least. 97 Rock did just the exact opposite of that ending it quickly. Individual players from 97 Rock had almost as many hits as the entire Magoo squad combined. 97 Rock (1-1) will play the Gallaghers next Wednesday night at 8pm as T.N.B.S.L Slapnut Magoos (0-2) also play The Gallaghers (1-1) but this one starts at 9pm. Kibbe Park is where the action all takes place….

Recap-
T.N.B.S.L Slapnut Magoos at least made it to the 6th inning in this one. Actually had a lead twice against Allstate who as of now is looking like the team to beat. Well balanced attack from everybody on Allstate. Little sister Crystal looks to be trying to teach older brother Brandon how to hit the ball without forcing people already on base out. Three and four hitters Funke and Huertas went a combined 8-8 this week driving in a lot. That's not going to happen next week when Andrew Steinbrenner's Allstate (2-0) play against TF Browns Blind Squirrels (1-1) at 7pm. T.N.B.S.L Slapnut Magoos (0-2) will go against The Gallaghers (1-1) at 9pm in hopes of playing to their capabilities.

Both teams scored a bunch in the first inning which ended 5-3 for the away team. They sustained as the home team fizzled out. Balls Deep were chasing many softballs hit deep in this one. Lots of action by two highly respectful teams. Next Thursday night at 7pm TF Browns Beers N Bombs (1-0) will face the U.S.P.S (1-1) in a rematch of the semi finals last year in the playoffs. High profile game there. Balls Deep (0-2) will try to turn their luck around as they take on TF Browns Commissioner's Crew (1-1) at 9pm.

Pirincci does continue his hot streak this week hitting a triple with one out in the third inning but couldn't score to avoid the shutout gem pitched by Bieber. Lehner and Pullyblank deliver 7 of the 16 runs scored in this one.

Recap-
In a high scoring action packed game Fava Brothers Lawn Care fall to Cummings/Lee by a touchdown and two point conversion 22-14. Doug Cummings I would assume needed medical assistance getting out of bedFriday morning after all the swinging and running he had to do. He combined with Quinn and Burg drove in as many runs as Fava Brothers Lawn Care did. Fava Brothers did answer back with 6 runs in the 5th to extend the game with a Pat Fava bases clearing triple in the mix. Unfortunately, Pat would kill the 6th inning rally hitting into an inning ending double play taking the wind out of their sails against Closing Pitcher Jarad Lee. No clutch gene. Cummings/Lee (1-0) will go against TF Browns Commissioner’s Crew (1-1) at 8pm and Fava Brothers Lawn Care (1-1) will face TF Browns Master Batters (1-1) at 6pm next Thursday night at Kibbe Park.

The New Batavia Softball League's Coed season begins at Kibbe Park and so do the hopes for 7 teams as they chase the championship trophy. Game 1 unfortunately was over before it started as the TF Brown's Blind Squirrels (1-0) reassure The Misfits (0-1) that the team name does fit in a 14-4 final. Proud of every player on both sides. Fun natured trash talk amongst many friends and some new faces have joined which we are always proud to have. TF Brown's Blind Squirrels (1-0) will be visiting against Wii Not Fit (1-0) Wednesday May 3rd in a rivalry game starting at 6pm. Kibbe Park is where all the games will be held.

Game 2 of opening night was a pretty high scoring afair that started off slowly as the rust was getting removed from the off-season for these teams. Andrew Steinbrenner's Allstate (1-0) spread the wealth with everybody batting in at least one run in their matchup against the respected bunch from 97 Rock (0-1) who made a push later but it was too much to overcome.

Now the final game of our opening night for Coed softball under the lights at Kibbe Park Wednesday's turned out to be the game of the week. Absolute prime time deserving. Wii Not Fit (1-0) jumped out to a five run lead after The Gallagher's (0-1) scored first. The Gallagher's then chip, chip, chipped away to tie the game as Wii Not Fit stranded the bases loaded with only one out in the sixth inning. Tom Sauka hit a triple in the top of the seventh inning to avenge a bad news bears base running blunder earlier in the game, but would not get any further. Wii Not Fit the home team with last ups loaded the bases again with one out and M. Dwyer delivered a walk off high sacrifice fly as The Gallagher's could not get out of the bases loaded jam this time. Wii Not Fit (1-0) will be looking at their first loss of the season as they take on the TF Brown's Blind Squirrels (1-0) next week at 6pm. Very fun and entertaining opening night of sofbtall at Kibbe Park.

After running teams for a couple of years in Byron-Bergen, Stan Kaus and Matt Landers got to talking last year about getting more girls involved in fastpitch softball and bringing the teams back to Batavia.

"After last year we decided there are more girls in Batavia who want to play softball, so we kind of looked at each other and said, ‘Are you sure you want to go bigger?’ and we said, ‘as long as the parents step up and help,' " Kaus said.

The response, Kaus said, "has been phenomenal."

The new Batavia Girls Fastpitch is incorporating as a nonprofit with an eight-person board. There are eight new coaches, 17 sponsors and so far 35 girls signed up.

There are two 12-and-under teams and for the first time a 10-U team. Next Tuesday, they will host a meeting to form at least one, and maybe two, 15-U teams, which will add another 12 to maybe more than 20 more girls participating.

"I think the word will get out," Kaus said. "I think a lot of girls felt their only choice for playing ball was Little League. I think if they can come out and watch softball and see fastpitch, I think it will be great."

The Stingers, as the teams are known, also have new uniforms.

"The fact that it's back and we're breathing new life into fastpitch softball is kind of exciting," Kaus said.

  The Genesee Community College softball team lost the third and final game of the Region III Division III Group B Finals series to Hudson Valley Community College on Saturday afternoon by a final score of 16-5. The Cougars forced a game three after a comeback win on Friday night but fell behind after the Vikings scored two in the top of the first on Saturday. Genesee responded in the home-half of the inning after Karissa Schuster led off with a single and came around to score on a Shannon Baker hit. The Cougars added two more runs in the inning and took a 3-2 lead into the second. Baker retired HVCC in order in the second but surrendered five runs on two hits and two walks in the third, which put the Vikings in the lead for good. Hudson Valley added two more in the fourth before GCC scored twice in the bottom of the inning to cut the lead to 9-5, but the Cougars send just two batters over the minimun to the plate the rest of the way and did not cross the plate again. Schuster finished the game 3-4 with two runs scored. Dani Wilshire and Chelsey Ruzewski each collected two hits and Georgie Miller went 1-4 with a run scored and a run batted in. Shuster and Baker were both named to the Region III Group B All-Tournament team for Genesee, which finishes the season 25-11

The late Ed Anderson was remembered Friday by former colleagues and players as a man dedicated to the education of children and a keen interest in guiding young female athletes in the pursuit of excellence and confidence.

One speaker noted that Anderson did for generations of female student athletes what Coach Dan VanDetta did in boys sports.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Roy Dexheimer, superintendent from 1968 to 1981;
  • Dr. David Van Scoy, superintendent from 1981 to 1998;
  • Nancy Viola, athletic director 1981-1998;
  • John Jakubowski, principal of Batavia Middle School, 1990-2003;
  • James Tetter, parent and BHS graduate, Class of 1966;
  • Ally Shirtz Howe and Sue Medley, BHS graduates who pushed through the idea of naming the field after Anderson;
  • Michael Bromley, current athletic director.

Anderson's grandchildren threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

The upgraded softball field at Batavia High School will be dedicated Friday to honor Ed Anderson, a former coach and teacher with the school district.

Anderson taught sixth grade from 1965 until his retirement in 1998. He was the first varsity girls softball and girls soccer coach for the Blue Devils.

"He was known as an excellent teacher and is most famous for his annual weeklong sixth-grade camping trips to Allegheny State Park that he led for 30 years, said Sue Medley, who has been helping organize the dedication ceremony, which starts at 3:30 p.m., Friday, rain or shine.

Anderson coached junior high bowling from 1977 to 1987, softball from 1979 to 1998, soccer from 1978 to 1998 and girls basketball from 1988 to 1991.

The girls won their first sectional title in softball in 1982.

"Coach Ed Anderson left his mark on generations of Batavia Middle and High School students while serving the Batavia City School system for more than 30 years. He was a role model to all," said Athletic Director Mike Bromley. "He was a source of support and an example of calmness, determination and generosity for the athletes he coached. He fought tirelessly for equality and opportunity in girls’ sports."

While school officials had recognized the need to upgrade the softball facilities, it was only after a group of players and their parents filed a Title IX lawsuit demanding facilities more on par with what the boys baseball team enjoys by playing its games at Dwyer Stadium that a settlement was reached. That led to new bleachers, dugouts, infield, outfield fence, scoreboard and batting cage.

The team is scheduled to play Greece Arcadia at 4:30 p.m. Following the game there will be a celebration reception in the high school's atrium at 6:30 p.m.

The dedication committee is still seeking financial support. The committee has currently raised $3,400 with a goal of $10,000. Funds will be used for field signage, a permanent memorial, dedication ceremony and contribution to the Ed Anderson Outdoor Education Campership Fund on behalf of the community.

The Genesee Community College softball team dropped both games of a doubleheader to Herkimer College on Saturday afternoon, falling in game one 8-2 and 11-0 in game two (F/5).

The Generals scored a run in the first to take an early lead, but the Cougars tied it in the bottom of the inning after Karisa Schuster led off with a single and scored on an RBI single from Andrea Torres. Bailee Welker sacrificed the run into scoring position.

Dani Wilshire gave GCC the lead in the bottom of the second with a solo home run to make it 2-1.

Genesee combined for just three hits the rest of the way, however, and Herkimer scored twice in the fourth, three times in the fifth and added two in the sixth to win game one.

Shannon Baker gave up eight runs on 15 hits struck out three in the complete-game effort.

Georgie Miller went 2-3 at the plate, Schuster was 1-3 with a run scored and Torres went 1-3 with an RBI.

After GCC went down in order in the first inning of game two, the Generals sent nine players to the plate and scored five times in the bottom of the first to take the early lead.

Herkimer added six runs in the second and shut the Genesee offense down to win game two in five innings.

The Cougars managed just two hits in game two, a double by Wilshire and a single by Torres.

Genesee (14-9) will travel to Cayuga Community College on Sunday to resume a suspended game from Apr. 13, and play a doubleheader against the Spartans beginning at 1 p.m.
