Greece Post 13  Hiscock Fishbaugh 10

Kyle Bailey went 3 for 3 with 4 RBIs including a 3-run home run during a 9 run 3rd inning to lead Greece to a 13-10 victory over Hiscock Fishbaugh.

GP got a quick 3-0 lead in the first with RBIs from Bailey, Dan Freese and an RBI double from Nick Horton.

HF grabbed a pair of runs in the top of the 3rd but Greece exploded for 9 in the bottom half.  Freese and Justin LoTemple hit back to back RBI singles.  After a Horton walk to reload the bases. Hiscock got 2 quick outs but made an error on what would have been out #3.  Tim Ostrander drew a bases loaded walk, Joe Skibinski knocked in 2 with a single followed by the Bailey bomb to close out the scoring.

The 12-2 lead was not comfortable as HF continued to chip away to make it 12-7 in the 6th.  Brian Withers hit a deep fly ball to left to score LoTemple in the bottom half.

A walk , an error and a hit by pitch got 3 quick runners on for the Hilton based team in the 7th.  They all eventually wound up scoring to make it 13-10.  LoTemple came in with the tying tun at the plate to get the last out and record the save.

Bailey led the way going 3 for 3 with 4 RBI in only 3 innings played.  Skibinski was 2 for 3 with 2 RBI and 3 runs scored.  LoTemple with 2 for 3 with a double, an RBI and his 1st stolen base of 2016.  Horton was also 2 for 3 with a double to help lead GP (2-1)


Doud Post 4  Greece Post 3

Greece seemed to be in control of the game until late when Doud used two triples and an error to score 3 runs and take a 4-3 lead and hold on in the top of the 7th for the win.

Greece got two runs in the 2nd inning by drawing 3 walks, a ground out and a wild pitch.

GP took a 2 run lead in the 5th when pitcher Trevor Layne knocked in Nick Horton with a single.

Layne took the tough luck loss throwin a 73 pitch complete game with 8 strikeouts allowing only 2 earned runs.  He pitched well enough for the win but with his offense striking out 10 times and leaving numerous runners on base did him in.

He also led the offense going 2 for 3.  Joe Skibinski was 2 for 2 and  Horton stole 4 bases for Greece (1-1)


Greece Post 4  Irondequoit Post 1

Nick Jackson starts off the season with a complete game gem.  He allows 4 hits over the course of the game with 2 strikeouts.  He relied on great defense and locating all of his pitches to keep his pitch count to 80.

 Trevor Layne led off the 2nd inning with a single and was scored on an error after he stole second base.

 Brian Withers scored in the third when he and Austin Westrich converted the 1st and 3rd double steal.

 Nick Horton added a big 2 run single in the top of the 7th to give a 4-0 cushion.  Irondequoit scored on a groundball out in the 7th to finish the scoring.

 Bryan Rivera finished 2 for 4 and made two amazing plays at short to end any type of rally that for GP (1-0) Irondequoit tried.

Welcome to the 2016 page for the Greece Post American Legion Baseball program.


Home of the 2015 District 7 Regular Season Champions.


This season includes a team filled with many returners who contributed to the success of the program last year after a two year slip up.  The team is comprised of players from the 4 high schools in the town of Greece as well as a player from Bishop Kearney High School and one player who is attending college.


From Greece Arcadia there is Dan Freese, Joe Skibinski, Nick Horton, Anthony Kane, Jake Gruka, Bryan Rivera and Kyle Bailey

From Greece Olympia: Pat Collins, Brian Withers, Ryan Bubel and Marc Piccolo.

From Greece Athena: Justin LoTemple, Trevor Layne and Nick Jackson

From Greece Odyssey: Austin Westrich and Mike Ciccarone

And from Bishop Kearney: Tim Ostrander


This team is filled with a lot of talented arms that can easily go through a grueling week of playing 7-8 games in a given week due to rain that you know is going to come in our region.  You will see the normal faces getting starts during league play such as Anthony Kane, Mike Ciccarone, Trevor Layne and Nick Jackson.  But there is a total of 13 players who coach has complete confidence of putting up there and getting outs at any notice.  The thing he is looking forward to the most is not having to rely on 2-3 arms to get us through the season that plays a lot of games in a short period of time.  Coming out of the bullpen and on off nights you will see Jake Gruka, Justin LoTemple, Austin Westrich, Kyle Bailey and Marc Piccolo.


Greece has the luxury of also having 3 catchers on the roster.  Brian Withers, Kyle Bailey and Ryan Bubel will all see action back there.  Once again, staying fresh behind the plate will be another key to the success of this team.


The infield is loaded with interchangable parts.  Many players can play multiple positions and be very good where their name shows up on the lineup.

In the corners, you will see Dan Freese, Justin LoTemple, Bailey, Layne, Ciccarone and Kane.


Up the middle you will see Joe Skibinski and Bryan Rivera seeing the majority of the time but also Layne, Withers, Austin Westrich and Bubel.


The outfield is extremely talented defensively and extremely deep.  Nick Horton, Pat Collins and Westrich all return to compete with Layne, Marc Piccolo, Tim Ostrander, Rivera and LoTemple


The only downside coach see for the upcoming season is making everyone happy.  With only 9 lineup slots and so much talent, you can't get everyone you want on the field at the same time.  The good news is that there have been some rule changes made to the regular season, such as re-entry and catcher speed up rule, to get more players into the game without depleting your options earlier in the game.


Coach Ford has not been this excited about a season in a very long time and looks forward to working with such a talented and committed bunch of young men.
