2014 12U Cooperstown Recap
As the 12U Manager, I'm very proud to share the success of the talented young men on the 12U team as they performed in the Cooperstown All-Star Village tournament.
Our team was one of 40 teams that participated during the 6th week of the summer tournament season (July 12th - 17th).
The boys played during one of the most rainy weeks on record at All-Star Village, yet their success was not dampened by the downpours.
The team played 9 games and ended with a 6-3 record. The team went 4-2 in pool play and went 2-1 during the single-elimination tournament.
We started our All-Star Village experience on Sunday against The Rampage from California - a memorable game as Adam Thompson smacked the very first pitch thrown to our team over the fence for a home run!
After losing that first game, and having our second game rained out, the boys were forced to play 3 games in a row on Monday morning - and they won them all.
In our first playoff game against the Lockport Vipers from IL, Shane Doherty hit his first career grand slam!
One of the highlights of the week was defeating the No 3. seed, Team ESP Select (from IL), in the second round of the playoffs. We were the No. 14 seed.
We were one game away from the final four! We were the last NJ team standing, and the last town rec all-star team standing! An incredible run for these talented and dedicated boys!
In total, our team hit 15 home runs. Joey Young smacked 3 HRs, Miguel Zavalla, Nick Perez, Dylan Allen and Adam Thompson hit 2 each, and Justin Smith, Shivam Patel, Shane Doherty and Urvaj Shah added one HR each.
Miguel Zavalla and Urvaj Shah hit their first career home runs at All-Star Village!!
Our pitchers - Shivam Patel, Joey Young, Shane Doherty, Justin Smith and Travis Ling - did a great job all week!!
The entire team is to be commended for their hard work that started with winter workouts in March and ended with an "elite 8" appearance in Cooperstown!
Our dedicated fans - the families and friends that supported us all year - made our week at All-Star Village a memorable one. Our team became infamous and we were labeled the loudest team on the complex!! Soft and chewy!!
Special thanks to the dedicated coaches of the 12U team - Danny Young, Jeff Graham and John Ling.
Thanks also to our hard-working fundraising chairs: Aimee Allen and Tina Kadi.
Lastly, thanks to the parents of the 12U players. You worked hard all season long with fundraising and supporting our team.
I must not forget to thank those of you in the NEBS community who watched our games on your computers, texted your well-wishes, and lived and died along with every pitch thrown, every hit, and every catch.
We look forward to passing the Cooperstown "torch" to the 11U team and supporting them in their fundraising efforts as they prepare for their own unique and amazing experience.

South Amboy, N.J. -- The North Edison Blue Devils won their first tournament in four years against South Amboy, winning the second game of their double-header 7-3.
The Blue Devils were coming off a rout of two-seed Chatham, run-ruling them 16-3 in three innings. South Amboy had gone a perfect 3-0 in pool play, earning a ticket to the finals.
North Edison got off to a rocky start going down 1-2-3 vs. Thunder pitcher Kishan Dalal. In the bottom of the inning, the Thunder’s Anthony Monderine drew a lead-off walk when Zachary Zebro hit a bomb off the right-field fence to score the first run of the game. Ryan Sekman then hit a crisp liner over short to drive in Zebro for the second run of the inning. Diego Rodriguez then hit a double in the left-center gap to make it second and third with one out, when Arnav Borole then picked up a huge strikeout of Jordan Williams and groundout to second baseman Matt McGuiness to end the inning.
The Blue Devils could not take advantage of Matt Diserio’s lead-off walk in the second inning and followed with three groundouts. Borole then made quick work of the Thunder, striking out the first two batters, walking Brandon Hernandez, and getting Johnnie Apple on a strike out looking.
The Blue Devils then suffered their second 1-2-3 inning. McGuiness lined out to the first baseman, followed by two more groundouts. After North Edison’s first three turns at-bat, they had not recorded a single hit.
In the bottom of the third, North Edison’s Borole whiffed the lead-off hitter before Zebro reached on an error, stole second and scored on Dalal’s sacrifice fly to right, giving South Amboy a 3-0 lead.
But at the beginning of the fourth inning, the momentum shifted. Shane Petagna walked to begin the inning. Chris Wojciechowski reached on a fielder’s choice followed by a Joey Cervelli walk to put a runner in scoring position.
What happened next put the Blue Devils in the driver’s seat for the rest of the game. Brandon Fong destroyed a Dalal 1-0 pitch, smashing it over the left-center fence to tie the game with a 3-run home run.
The South Amboy manager then came out to talk to Dalal, thinking it was his first visit. But the umpires clarified it was his second visit due to a brief discussion with the pitcher during a previous injury timeout. The South Amboy coach came out to argue, but the umpires would have none of it. After a lengthy discussion, he was nearly ejected. The Thunder players from that point on were in a big funk.
After three walks and a McGuiness 2-run single, the inning was over. The Blue Devils had sent 5 of their players across the plate, giving them a 5-3 lead. The North Edison coaching staff made a big decision and replaced Borole and brought in Fong.
Fong shut the Thunder down in the bottom of the fourth. The Thunder threatened to put up more runs in the fifth, but stranded a runner on second after Fong walked the first batter, but then struck out the next three South Amboy hitters to end the inning.
If the Thunder would have any chance of winning, they would have to do it in walk-off fashion.
Diserio led off with a single, followed by a hard line out by Wisnor Abbott. Conor Burns then smashed a ball into right to make it first and third. Jack Thompson then came up and hit an RBI double. McGuiness collected an RBI groundout to extend the lead to 7-3.
Fong came on to pitch his sixth inning of the day. A pop-up, a strikeout and a lineout later, the Blue Devils were champions.
When manager Rich Petagna was asked about how it felt to win it all, he simply replied, “It’s cold,” because his team had just emptied their water cooler and bottles on his head.
The Blue Devils followed this title by traveling to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware where they finished 8th in a 14-team field after a 2-2 finish in pool play.
