HCBL ALL-STAR GAME  |  NORTH 2, SOUTH 1

Eddie Haus posed for a picture alongside Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League president Brett Mauser when a woman came rushing toward the field, camera in hand.

Haus, an outfielder for the Shelter Island Bucks, turned and smiled wide as the woman steadied her camera for a shot of her own.

It was his mother.  (more…)

The stars will come out on Wednesday night. Prominent among them will be members of the North Fork Ospreys and the Riverhead Tomcats.

Ten Ospreys and nine Tomcats were named to play in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League All-Star Game at Baseball Heaven in Yaphank on Wednesday night. Those Ospreys and Tomcats will be joined by representatives of the Shelter Island Bucks on the North team that will play the South, which will have players from the Montauk Mustangs, the Sag Harbor Whalers, the Southampton Breakers and the Westhampton Aviators.  (more…)

BUCKS 9, TOMCATS 5

On days like Saturday, the Riverhead Tomcats must wish there was something like a baseball bank. Need a run, take a run. Need a hit, take a hit. Just tuck away any excess offense you may have to your credit and save it for a rainy day, so to speak.

It would have come in handy for the Tomcats, who banged out 22 hits (including four each by Nate Soria and Hunter Dolshun) in a 14-5 defeat of the Montauk Mustangs on Friday. Had they been able to carry over some of those hits and runs to Saturday’s game against the Shelter Island Bucks, it might have made a difference. As it was, the Bucks showed why they hold first place in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League and the hard-luck Tomcats came up short, 9-5, at Veterans Memorial Park in Calverton.  (more…)

AVIATORS 9, TOMCATS 2

It seemed hard to believe afterward, looking at the scoreboard at Aviator Field in Westhampton, but for six tight innings, the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League game had been a classic pitching duel.

And then the wheels came flying off, sending the Riverhead Tomcats tumbling to defeat.

That’s baseball for you.  (more…)
