Week 1 Stats posted under handouts. Charlie (Rules Committee) sent a mail to the captains asking them to talk to those throwing too hard from the mound. There were 46 strikeouts in week 1 - that's not fun. 5 or 6 guys were consistently throwing gas and those players need to slow it down - we have always tried to run things on the honor code - cooperate and keep it fun for all. We also need to do a better job setting up early, cleaning up late, turn off the lights at the end of night, etc.. all need to be participate to make the league successful.
Payment - Real simple. If your team is not fully paid ($600) by the end of the night tomorrow (11/27), week 3 is a forfeit loss for your team.
Jerseys - Arrived Thursday afternoon. Will hand them out to teams who had paid tonight. I will not be there week 3 (11/3). On November 4th, Immaculute CYO is hosting pocketbook bingo at Kirkbride.

Behind timely hitting by Junior and Croyle, solid defense and pitching by Smitty, Castrello, and Croyle, FSU had little trouble eliminating UVA.
SEC up next week.

Week 16: Thursday, Feb 4: Week 15 Stats Added -
ACC: UVA earns #1 seed with a win or a Miami loss; Miami earns the #1 seed with a win and a UVA loss. Clemson is the #3 seed. FSU is the #4 seed with a win or a GT loss. GT is the #4 with a win and an FSU loss. UNC eliminated.
SEC: Kentucky is the #1 seed, SC is the #2 seed. LSU is the #3 seed with a win or a Vandy loss. Vandy is the #4 seed with a win and an LSU loss. If both LSU and Vandy finish with the same number of points, LSU wins the head to head tie-breaker is the #3 seed. Tenn and UF have been eliminated.
Round 1 is best of 3 with #1 playing #4. (#1 gets home field for all game). #2 plays #3 with #2 seed having home field for games 1 and if necessary, game 3.
January 23, 2016 - Stats have been updated. Week 15 - GT on Equipment, Tenn on book, UNC on clean-up. Need book done as I will be late Thursday.
Time to start thinking about YE awards. Will Keto catch Becker for the Batting Title? Save the Date Mike D is lurking as well. Only 7 players hitting 0.400 or better. New names on top in the HR race - Gould, Driscoll, and Algozzino all with 7. 9 other players with 6 or 5. How about MVP? Only a handful with very good hitting and pitching numbers. All NRWBL? Most improved is tough as well - Peter was something like 1 for 25 last year. How about slimmed down Gould? Denoia? Gold glove tough this year ... could a robust catcher who consistently lays out on the floor sneak in and win? Scott Bednar Cy Young is another tight one. And the Spirit Award? Our Monte has an ERA of 49.62, a WHIP of 19.55 (22 walks 1.33 innings) but has hit 3 HRs and has 11 RBIs. Bruuuuuce and Vito D hitting below 0.100 ... tough choices again.
Top 4 from each division make the playoffs. Seed determined by total points (2 pts for a win, 1 pt for a tie). Tiebreakers for seeding: head to head record, then division record, then coin flip. Tiebreakers for #4 seed: head to head record, if 1-1 in head to head, then 1 game playoff determines the #4 seed.
In the ACC: UVA, Miami, Clemson battling it out for seeds 1,2,3. FSU is the 4th seed unless they go 0-2 and Georgia Tech goes 2-0 over the next 2 weeks then GT gets the 4th seed.
In the SEC: Kentucky, SC, Vandy, LSU all in and playing for seedings.
Week 14: Stats thru Week 13 updated under handouts, standings updated,

Lenny Denise had another strong game with 3 hits and 0 runs against in his inning of work. The large nose power hitter has been outstanding on the hill all year. Monty shines with nice work behind the plate and hits a big 2 run homer as UF holds off GT 5-4. Castaldo had 2 hits including a homer and 3 RBIs. Mike O'Hanlon had 2 homers in the loss. Vinny Martorelli was wearing proper fitting clothes this week. Umpire Matt hit a home run and got the win as Vandy continues to roll beating UNC 5-1. Charlie hit a homer and had 4 RBIs. John Kearney walked off hitting a bases clearing triple deep into the left corner as SC beats Clemson 4-3. John Daly homered in this one. Brian Reilly had 3 hits including a home run for Clemson. Offensive woes continue for FSU as they are shutout and no hit by Chris O'Neil, Jesus Monte, and Ray Pawlyk of Tennessee. Peter had 2 more hits for Tenn and is up there with the league leaders in BA.

Week 9 Stats Posted
Week 9 - Game Recap -
Vandy blows out Clemson 8-0 as Marty Springstead, Mike Denoia, and Charlie Fausel combine for the perfect game. (preserved by a great diving catch by Fausel to end the game). Charlie and Denoia had 3 hits each including a home run. Vandy has won 4 in a row. South Carolina's John Kearney hit a 3 run opposite field home run in the 1st. The 1st ball the dead pull hitter has ever hit to RF in his life. Daly had 2 triples and Becker went 2/4 lowering his league leading batting average to 0.588. Kentucky stayed perfect (9-0) coming from behind to beat UNC. Dimarsico stayed hot going 4 for 4 driving in both KU runs. UVA stayed atop the ACC beating Mike D's Florida squad 1-0 in an 11 minute game. Keto and Driscoll hit back to back 2 out triples in the bottom of the 3rd as Miami rallied to walk off 2-1 against Tennessee. Pete Connolly had one of the best catches of the year on the mound. With the win Miami is now tied for 2nd place in the ACC. LSU wins 4-0 over Georgia Tehc on a 1st inning grand slam by Algozzino.
Week 9 Games Posted on the Schedule (LSU on Equipment, SC on Book, GT on clean up) ... reminder we play next week on Tuesday 12/22
IMPORTANT NR SPORTS HALL OF FAME NEWS - LOOK UNDER MY SITE NEWS
Financials - We paid the additional $1000 to the Town for weeks 10-20 and renewed our insurance at $720. We also donated $150 to the Town of SP Santa Gifts for Kids program. We donated last year as well. To date we have incurred $4545 in expenses and have collected $6600 in "tuition". If anyone wants a copy of the financials, just let me know.
Stats Thru Week 8 have been added under handouts
Roster Changes - Matty Sullivan tore his calf muscle and has been replaced on the UNC roster by Midnight Oil's Justin Michalek. For GT, John O'Riordan has been replaced by Mike Martorelli's socks, a Men's Smedium Dubinsky jersey, and Vinny Martorelli.
Week 8 Review: Might have been the best night of fielding the league has ever seen - Mike Hanlon's diving catch from the dish, Connolly, Algozzino, Smith all catching rockets. Probably 8-10 hits taken away from batters.
SC beats Miami 2-1 behind a Becker 2 run double. Driscoll hit his league best 5th home run for Miami. Fireman John Kearney got Keto to groundout to end this one earning the save. Florida won an injury shortened game 10-0 over the UNC team of Matt Sullivan, Mike Murphy, and newcomer Sean O'Connor. Matt Sullivan had a great night - popped up, struck out swinging on a ball that hit his neck, breast, and arm, and then tore his calf muscle bounding for a foul ball like a large mountain cat going after a wounded deer. He is done for the year. For Florida ... Mike D had 3 hits including a homer. Home Runs also for Woody and Castaldo. Higgins shook off pneumonia hitting a home run as Georgia Tech beats Tennessee 1-0. Vinny Martorelli has been called up from the AA Scranton Socks and Little Shirt ball club. John O'Riordan relegated. UVA came from behind beating LSU 3-2. Nose Denise had 4 hits in this one and Adam Wein hit the walk off double just passed the outstretched but still short arms of Mike Sidoti. Camou-Algo homered for LSU. Vandy got the better of FSU as Bruuuuce Mogg hit his first career HR driving in 3. Mike Denoia added 3 hits and Charlie chipped in with a couple two baggers and 3 RBIs. Junior Lopez gave up all 8 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks. Many stuck around for game of the night as the 1st place Wildcats from Kentucky beat ACC powerhouse Clemson 1-0. KU had 3 hits each from Dwyer and Dimarsico and a big RBI triple from Mike Hanlon. KU held Clemson to 1 hit. The Clemson defeat along with the UVA win puts Virginia in 1st place in the ACC. If the playoffs were to start UVA would be playing GT in the 1 / 4 game and Clemson / Miami in the 2 /3 game. In the SEC, undefeated Kentucky would be playing Vandy in the 1 / 4 game with SC and LSU playing the 2 / 3 game.

Week 7 Review: Miami and Vandy played their week 7 game back on Orange Crush night (11/25) to a 2-2 tie. Charlie and Keto both threw 2 shutout innings preserving the tie. Behind HRs from Kerr and Long Stride Lieberman, Clemson beat Florida 4-2. Reilly continued to impress offensively with 2 hits and 2 RBIs. UVA tossed a perfect game against Tennessee winning 2-0 with HRs from Lenny and Cahill. Kentucky remained perfect beating FSU 3-1 with Dwyer and Gould hitting HRs. South Carolina beat up on Brian Goggin and Georgia Tech winning 6-2. All 4 players for SC had 2 hits a piece and drove in runs. The skinny Hanlon (Mike O'Hanlon) hit 2 HRs in the loss. Behind 2 HRs off Mike Sidoti's bat, LSU beat UNC 2-1. Vito Denoia got the win.
No write-ups Week 6 --- apologies to Mike Murphy (Big 2 walk off 2 run homer); Peter Connolly (4 for 4 with a HR); Mike Hanlon (5 walks); Lenny (HR off Becker and 5 RBIs); and Woody (2 HR's and 5 RBIs).

3/5/15: Congratulations to the Pirates - Your 2014 / 2015 Winter Seeason Champions. Back to back years for O'Neil. Charlie's 2nd. 1st time for Ray Pawlyk and Rookie Mike Castaldo. Pirates started the season 0-3. Their next 21 games ... 18-2-1. That is impressive.
Post Season Final Status Under Handouts
Write-ups for final can be found by clicking schedules, national league, and highlight the game you are looking for.
3/3/15: New Survey Added !
2/26/15: Congratulations to the Pirates and Orioles ! Write ups done, stats updated.
2/11/15: White Sox over the Athletics (3-2; 7-8; 6-1)
2/11/15: Rockies over the Expos (1-0; 2-4; 2-1)
2/8/15: Regular Season Final Stats Attached. 2/11 and 2/18 playoff game schedule set. Click Events on the left hand side.
2/3/15: See Revised Game Schedule for 2/4/15. Every game has playoff implications. Stats thru game 15 updated. Playoff scenarios and seedings are complicated. Throw ties in the mix and even more complicated.
Pirates have the #1 seed. Rockies have the #2 seed. Expos have clinched #3 seed.
4th and last playoff spot:
Nationals are #4 seed with a win and a Diamondbacks and Braves loss.
Diamondbacks are #4 seed with a win and a Braves loss. (doesn't matter what the Nationals do as D'Backs win tiebreaker with Nationals)
Braves are #4 seed with a Win or a loss if Diamondbacks and Nationals both lose.
AL: (courtesy of Calvario) (Cahill updates made 2/3/15)
Orioles are in.
Tigers are in with a W.
Tigers are out with a L and a White Sox W and Royals win (only scenario where they are knocked out). Tigers can also get in with a L if (Royals W, White Sox L) or (Royals L, White Sox L). Tigers are out if they lose and (Royals W, White Sox W). I think they are also out with a loss and (Royals L, White Sox W) as 3 teams (A's, Tigers, Yanks) will have 17 points for the last 2 playoff spots. Head to Head records - no clear cut winner. Go to division record (A's would be 5-4-1, Yanks 5-4-1, Tigers 3-6-2). Tigers out. Not 100% sure with that scenario.
White Sox are in with a W. White Sox are in with a L and Yanks L And A's L. White Sox and Royals will have a 1-game playoff with White Sox L, Royals L and A's L
Royals are in with a W. Out with a loss, except the one-game playoff scenario above.
out with a L. A's are In with a win and a White Sox L. Think A's are in with a Win; Out with a Loss. (see Tigers above)
out with a L. Yanks in with a win and A's L or White Sox loss. Think Yanks in same boat as A's - Yank in with a Win, Out with a Loss
1/26/15: Stats thru Game 14 updated. The pitch velocity continues to be a concern with many throwing too hard.
No individual game write-ups this week. A recap of 1/21/15: Diamondbacks stay right in the playoff hunt with a 0-0 tie against the hated Pirates. Pat Carey strikes out 4 of the 6 he faced. Charlie Fausel and Ray Pawlyk worked out of trouble in their respective innings. With the chest bumps, batting practice, headbands, Castaldo's fielding style, and O'Neill's celebratory dances .. the Pirates are getting many boos from the crowd. The Rockies beat the struggling Braves 5-3 behind Daly's 2 homers and Mike D's explosive balls. Braves are 0-8 when all 4 players present. No team chemistry there Danny. Athletics surprise the Tigers 3-2 as Matty Sullivan homers off Jeff Becker. Brian Goggin booted 2 more balls giving him 37 errors for the season. Expos shutout the Nationals 4-0 behind a couple triples by Mike Grasso and Chris Algozzino's 4th triple of the year. Nationals are averaging 0.8 runs per game. Brian Smith hits a walk off in the an extra frame as the Orioles beat the White Sox 1-0. In the most entertaining game of the evening ... the Yankees beat the Royals 6-5 scoring 5 runs off Mike Dwyer in the 3rd. After Dwyer's bases clearing triple in the 1st, it looked bad for the Yanks, but Keith Finnerty had the eyebrows working hitting a triple and 2 homers (all 5 RBIs in the inning) - probably the best single inning performance of the season.
1/23/15: As we get closer to the playoffs - here is how the seeds and tie-breakers work: (same as last year)
Top 4 from each division make the playoffs. Seed detemined by total points (2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie). Tie breakers for seeding: head to head record then division record ... if still a tie, coin flip. If there is a tie for the #4 seed (the last playoff spot) .. better head to head record gets the 4 seed. If 1-1 in head to head, then 1 game playoff to determine the #4 seed. (any play in games occur 2/11 or 2/18 depending on the League)
2/11: Best of 3 Series
NL #1 seed (gets home field all three games) vs. NL #4 seed
NL #2 seed (home field for games 1 and 3) vs. NL #3 seed
2/18: Best of 3 Series
AL #1 seed (gets home field all three games) vs. AL #4 seed
AL #2 seed (home field for games 1 and 3) vs. AL #3 seed
2/25: League Championships (Best of 3)
3/4: World Series (Best of 5)
1/21/15: Revised Stats uploaded under handouts. I used the iscore application to true-up any errors made doing he stats manually.
1/13/15: Game 13 tomorrow. All teams still in the playoff race. Diamondbacks on equipment, Athletics on the book, Pirates have clean up duties.
1/2/15: Good day yesterday. Write-ups posted; stats thru game 11.
12/29: Stats Updated Thru 10 Games, 1/1/15 (Thursday) Schedule Posted (WE ARE STARTING AT NOON), No Write-Ups this week (my apologies to Junior, Higgins, Mike Kearney, B Reilly, Dimarsico, Calvario, Howe, Daly, Dwyer, Snoop (mound only) ... all had nice performances.
Looked like the kids had a good time Friday night. Some nice swings in there - great bunch of kids.
American League out does the National League going 21-14-1 !
For Jan 1 .... If a Pizza Place open, I'll bring up a bunch of pies at noon. Rockies on Equipment, Royals on the Book, Diamondbacks on Clean Up. If gym still available when we are done with are games, hoops anyone? Excellent college football games on later in the afternoon/night as well.
Lastly - We all (including me) need to get back to having a good time laughing with each other, not taking whiffle ball too serious ... We have a great thing going - not because you get a chance to win a $6 broken trophy from Anco or win a $19 made in China, knock-off jersey that will not fit right because it is a knock-off jersey made in China, but because we have a local hangout once a week where you can hit a triple and not have to run it out, have a beer, and laugh at Matty Sullivan when his shorts are pulled up to his nipples.
12/26: Sounds like beginning games at 12pm (noon) on 1/1/15 works best for most. See updated schedule in handouts.
12/22: Reminder - NRWBL Game 10 - Friday, 12/26 beginning at 7:45pm. Kids night ! Home run derby for the kids beginning at 7pm. Write-ups for game 9 posted. Stats thru game 9 posted.
12/18: Bat Throwing Rule Instituted: Effective beginning with game #10 (Friday, 12/26)
Any thrown bat results in the batter being called out, ejection from the game, and suspended for next game. Team also assessed an additional out. Note: If you are playing with 3 players and one gets ejected, you forfeit the game.
12/15/14: Stats thru game 8 added (under handouts). Write-ups for game 7. For 12/17 ... Royals on Equipment, Orioles on the Book, Rockies on cleanup.
American League holds the advantage 13-10-1 over the National League in interleague play.

Eventful draft Friday evening with a couple surprises and no clear cut favorite to win the title this year. Several captains left staring atthe board well after midnight trying to figure out what the f*ck happened. John Howe surprised many taking Matty Sullivan with the 7th pick and then shocked everyone (especially Kerr) taking warning track power career 0.132 hitter big Dave Mumford with the 3rd pick in the final round. Adam Wein had a great tryout and was taken #1 in the 2nd round (13th overall) by Pat Carey. Slight surprise. Lenny "Nose" Denise was overlooked by many (including Becker) and slipped to 9th overall.

9/30/14 - Breaking News ... Large chested, hard throwing lefty Brian Coyle will be undergoing season ending Tommy John surgery. Dr. Finnerty will be performing the procedure in his shed with some sharp glass he found. His replacement is Mike Hanlon's boy-toy, Mike O'Hanlon. Most of us know him as the skinny Hanlon. The Captains are perplexed. Are we getting the Mike O'Hanlon that walked 49 batters in a single season or the Mike O'Hanlon that hit 9 HRs and drove in 36 runs.
Career Stats (including post season are posted under Handouts/Stats)
Same league set up as last year with 2 Divisions, 6 teams in each, with top 4 from each divsion making the playoffs. Team names yet to be determined. Division 1 (Kerr, Keto, Becker, Howe, Dwyer, Calvario). Division 2 (Mike D, Cahill, Charlie, Chris A, Higgins, Carey).

9/19/2014 - 2014/2015 Season
The NRWBL Board held a meeting last evening on the grounds of the Calvario Estate welcoming in the 2014/2015 Season.
Item 1 on the agenda -- Captains Selection.
Off the heals of a sub-par, injury filled season batting 0.308 with an ERA of 3.23, Ray Pawlyk has been relagated to the group of 36. Tough decision .... Razor had a career BA of 0.559 going into the 2013/2014 Season - that's good for #6 on the career list. Ultimately, it was the injuries (bad shoulder, ankle/achilles issues, sore vagina) and the inability to consistently get on the mound that pushed the board to move the big man. Welcome back 2x Batting Champion Pat Carey to the top 12.
Chris Algozzino has been put on notice. Look as these numbers ... 0.213 BA, 0.284 OB%; 1 HR and 6 RBIs in 67 plate appearances, are you kidding me? Your a 2 time champion, a NR legend, a career leader in most categories. The NRWBL Board has put you on notice ... bat at least 0.300 with 4 or more home runs or relagation.
DRAFT: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3rd (9pm) at Red Rock
OPENING NIGHT: WED, OCTOBER 15
This year's Captains and the order in which they draft are:
(Note: the 3rd round (last round) order will be determined on draft night)

1/10/14: Week 13 write ups complete. Week 14 news under My Site News.
Top 4 from each division make the playoffs. Seed detemined by total points (2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie). Tie breakers for seeding: head to head record then division record ... if still a tie, coin flip. If there is a tie for the #4 seed (the last playoff spot) .. better head to head record gets the 4 seed. If 1-1 in head to head, then 1 game playoff to determine the #4 seed.
For example ... if the AL were to end right now (after 12 games)
#1) Mariners (get home field for all games in best of 3 series) - Mariners have 14 points (tied with Astros) but are 1-0 versus the Astros in regular season play.
#2) Astros - 14 points (home field game 1 and if necessary, game 3)
#3) Indians - 13 points
#4) Angels (12 points) and Tigers (12 points) would play a 1 game playoff to get in since they are 1-1 against each other in the regular season.
Year End Awards: We have decided not to do "Jerseys from China" this year. Many of the companies we have used in the past have been shut down by the Justice Department. Those that are "legally" operating are difficult to deal with (website names change weekly, you need to pay via money transfer (Western Union) and have no recourse if the funds disappear, etc) We might revisit in 2015. Besides, we are tired of Keto walking out of Red Rocks with 6 jerseys every year. The NRWBL will have a little something for every player and will scale down the "prizes".
12/30/13: Week 11 & Week 10 write ups can be found by clicking on Schedules on the left hand side of the home screen, then click National League, then change the number of games to display to 15 ... click the game you want to view the write up.

Note: Use the eteamz website for standings. The iscore website has an issue and did not make the Brewers / Mariners game many weeks ago final. Their IT group is working on it. All stats were captured but not the final result.
12/30/13: CYO Hoops has the gym on 1/1/14 until 7:30pm so kids night is canceled and our games will be played at regular time.
Mid-Season Stats Attached Under Handouts.

12/2/13: Website issues over the weekend. Write-ups for the 11/27 games can be found by clicking on Schedules then click National League bringing you to the scores and links to the write ups. Thanks to Kevin Hanlon for the hilarious announcing and congratulations to John Kearney and Danny Higgins for winning the door prize money. Home run contest was a *** show with only 3 hitting a homer in round 1. There should not have been a supplemental round, but we bent and spent another hour or so coming up with a 4th. That 4th - Charlie Fausel - Ended up winning beating Cahill in the final round. Clean up at 2am completed by small handful of people. We need to do a better job with time management and cleaning up the gym. Thanks.
Wednesday, November 27th: Special Events
