Mosquito A Bucs Crowned 2014 Regional Champions!

OA Champs 2014This weekend the Mosquito A Bucs capped off an undefeated regular season (19-0-1) by capturing the Regional Championship with 6-0 win against the Rosemont A’s. It was a great team performance, starting with great pitching (one hit shutout), excellent defense (no errors recorded) and timely base hits.

The Bucs were lead by a stellar pitching performance by Michael Arcaro, who pitched 5 scoreless innings while recording 10 strikeouts. Giovanni Mainella came in to record the last three outs of the game to seal the deal! The offence got timely base hits from James Rinaldi, Fabrizio Perreault, Stefano Iacobo , Steven Di Genova, and Giovanni Mainella among others. The kids definitely came to play and executed well defensively making difficult plays look easy. Notable plays by Thomas Forget, Steven Di Genova, James Rinaldi, Luciano Giliberti, Michael Arcaro and a MLB type scoop at first base by Giovanni Mainella. A notable mention to Matteo Parisi’s 4 inning complete game in the Semi’s on Saturday and to Claudio Sollazzo’s and Nicolas Demelo’s gritty play throughout the Regionals.

The team would also like to thank call-ups Sarah Commisso and Gioachhino Ciaravella who also contributed to the Bucs first two victories in the Regionals.
