Sponsor Spotlight

 

 

Ralph Gencarelli- Plaza Deli

50 Washington Street

Norwalk, Ct. 06854

www.PlazaDeliSono.com | 203-866-3990

 

Norwalk Cal Ripken Baseball appreciates every one of our sponsors. The success of our league and the experience we are able to give the kids would not be possible without our generous sponsors. We recently sat down with Ralph Gencarelli, owner of Plaza Deli, for a quick Q and A. Stop by and see Ralph and his team for some great food!

 

 

Norwalk Cal Ripken: Ralph, how many years has Plaza Deli operated in Norwalk?

Ralph Gencarelli: 15 years

 

NCR: How many years have you been at 50 Washington St?

 

RC: 15 years


NCR: How many years have you been a sponsor of Cal Ripken baseball?

RC: 5 years


NCR.
  Are you originally from Norwalk?

RC: Actually, I grew up in Darien but moved to Norwalk in 2002

 

NCR: How did you get into the deli/catering business?

RC: I worked in the family deli growing up and when I graduated from college, I decided to continue in the family business.


NCR: What do you like most about Norwalk and your customers?

RC: My clients are like my extended family. They make coming to work enjoyable and I meet new clients (friends) everyday. I love Norwalk for its diversity especially SoNo. It's been great to see the continuing positive changes throughout the years and I look forward to the future there.


NCR: Did you play sports growing up as a kid?

RC: Not really. My parents weren’t into sports and I had no one to guide me. The top priority was working in the family business. I didn’t start playing until I was old enough to afford a car and could drive myself to the field. Even though I was unable to play as a child, I always thought it installed commitment, responsibility, fun and good morals for the youth.


NCR: Who is your favorite sports team and why?

RC: Like I said, my father wasn't into sports, so I had no one guiding me to a specific team.  The first football game I watched on TV was Jets vs. Steelers and because of the colors, I’ve been a proud Steelers fan ever since.  I love the Mets, through good and tough times [chuckling].

 

NCR: What do you like most about the sport of baseball?

RC: I love the teamwork aspect of baseball, the mental decisions mangers have to make pitch by pitch. And, it’s America’s pastime.

 
NCR: What is the biggest difference you see between today’s youth baseball players and your experiences growing up?

 

RC: Really the only difference between now and the past is that there are more leagues, more time commitment involved and a lot more travel.


NCR: What is it that makes Norwalk such a great, competitive sports town?

RC: You have so many different league here which makes Norwalk so competitive just among itself. You don’t need to travel far away to get great competition.


NCR: What is the sports buzz these days among your regulars at Plaza Deli?

RC: Football and baseball are always talked about at Plaza Deli. My customers know where my heart lies [chuckling]. Most of my customers are fans of the Yankees and the Giants. It’s always fun talking sports with them.

NCR: Anything else you’d like to share with the Norwalk Cal Ripken Baseball community?

RC: I just want to say how proud and honored to be part of Cal Ripken league. To the coaches I want to say thank you for giving up their time and energy and providing these kids a fun atmosphere and opportunity to play America's game. Guys, continue your great work and efforts with these kids.
