Wolverines Bats Explode, Aston Eliminated

July 16, 2012
Aston – The Wayne Wolverines cracked 13 hits, including 6 doubles in the first two innings, to build a 15-1 lead over first seeded Aston-Media in the fourth round of the Main Line Junior Legion playoffs on Saturday.

The first 9 hitters in the lineup reached base with the big blows coming from back to back doubles by Sean Corelli and Nick Greco and then another pair of back to back doubles by Zach Shapiro and Will Girton. After Nick Johnson added the fifth double of the first inning, Wayne had plated 8 runs against a shell-shocked Aston-Media Pirates squad that had finished the regular season in first place with a sterling 15-1 record.

The Wolverines didn’t let up in the second.  Greco led off with a booming double and Brian Lucey walked, but the next two batters didn’t get on. With two outs, Shapiro singled home a run, Girton walked, Connor Wilson’s base knock scored a run, Johnson walked, and Corelli laced a 2 RBI single. Greco, batting around, then singled in a run and when it was all over, Wayne had put up 7 more runs and held an astonishing 15-1 lead.

With one out in the bottom of the second, the rains drenched Buggy Field on the campus of Sun Valley High School.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been more disappointed in seeing rain end a game,” said Wolverines’ manager Bob Bentz. “We had all the momentum and I knew they’d have the chance to come back with the hardest throwing pitcher in the league.”

The game resumed on Monday night and Aston-Media, with nothing to lose, sent out ace Brad Scull to the mound. Scull pitched 5 scoreless innings, gave up just 3 hits, and struck out 8.

Wayne’s pitching tandem of Greco, Garrett McGurl, and Corelli bent, but did not break. The Pirates scored three in the third, one in the fourth, and two each in the fifth and sixth, but the Wolverines did not give up the big inning. McGurl was aided by two double plays started by shortstop Corelli in the fifth and sixth to stop the home team rallies.

And, as if Corelli hadn’t done enough, he relieved McGurl in the seventh and got a 1-2-3 inning while striking out the final two batters of the game.

The Wayne Wolverines are the two-time defending Main Line Junior Legion champions. You can follow the Wolverines online at

Wolverines Dunk Tunkhannock

Tunkhannock -- The Wayne Wolverines Junior Legion and Senior Legion teams traveled north to Tunkhannock on Sunday, June 10 for its annual Friendship Series with Tunkhannock Legion.  The Senior Legion team dropped a close one to the home team 8-7, but the Wayne Junior Legion squad won 9-3 behind the pitching of Brandt Anderson.
Anderson mesmerized the home team all afternoon with a biting fastball with movement and a titillating curve.  Anderson started the game by striking out the sides and ended up pitching 6 innings with 8 strikeouts and yielding just 2 runs.
Wayne scored all it needed in the first inning when it posted 5 runs.  Matty Schaefer and Nick Johnson enjoyed the big blows with a couple of hits that scored Connor Wilson, Nick Wojotelwicz, and Nick Greco.  Anderson then helped his own cause with an RBI single that plated Johnson for the Wolverines fifth run.
The Wolverines stretched the lead to 7-0 in the second on hits by Wilson, Greco, and Johnson.
Wayne played strong defense with only one error on the day.  Matty Schaefer started a 5-3 double play in the second to stop a Tunkhannock rally and Sandlot call-up Andrew Austen made an amazing diving catch in the sixth that would have scored two Tiger runs had it dropped in for a hit.
  Wayne Junior Legion players found the only cool spot in Tunkhannock on this 90+ degree day by lounging in the cargo department of the 54 seat bus.

Haverford Rallies to Down Wayne

Haverford scored 4 runs in the home seventh to defeat the Wolverines 6-5.

Wolveriness Nip Narberth

Wayne Memorial Day Tournament Results

May 26, 2012
Wayne's Mike Lanzone applies the late tag to Avon Grove's Tyler Bonner in first round action at beautiful Creek Field in the 6th Annual Wayne Memorial Day Tournament.  Avon Grove went on to win the tournament title.
Wayne Junior Legion hosted its 6th annual Memorial Day tournament this weekend. This year's 12-team field was the biggest ever for the tournament and the tournament expanded to use the field at Haverford High on Friday night and also the new artificial turf field at The Shipley School for the entire tournament.

Avon Grove defeated West Chester 8-3 in the championship game to earn the title.

Wayne Legion's games were as follows:

Avon Grove 10, Wayne 1

The Wolverines knew that the key to escaping pool play and earning a spot in the semifinals went through its ability to get by a strong Avon Grove team in Round One. Although Wayne actually outhit Avon Grove 7-5, it did not get the timely hits with runners on base. Leadoff hitter Connor Wilson was the bright spot for Wayne as he went a perfect 3-for-3. Avon Grove went on to win the tournament championship.

Wayne 10, Oxford 2

Behind the heady pitching of Garrett McGurl, Wayne bounced back in the second round of pool play with a 10-2 win over Oxford. McGurl, displaying an excellent curve ball, twirled six scoreless innings of four-hit ball. McGurl was relieved in the seventh after losing his shutout bid and Zach Shapiro closed out the game for the Wolverines. Cleanup hitter Nick Greco was 4-for-5 on the day with a double and triple to go along with 5 RBI's.

But the big play on the day a triple play started by left fielder Nick Blake. With Wayne leading 4-0 in the third, Oxford had runners on second and third and no out and Henry Trabue at the plate. Trabue belted a deep fly ball to left field. Thinking that the ball was surely going to drop, the Oxford runners took off on the play, but Blake turned on the jets and made a circus catch in left and fell to the ground, then got up and fired to second, where Matty Schaefer doubled up the runner, then threw to third to Mike Lanzone for the triple play.

Wayne 11, Norristown 4

Brian Lucey and Sean Corelli had three hits each in leading Wayne to a 11-4 win over Norristown in the third round of pool play on Saturday. Lucey belted a triple that bounced off the 360 sign in left-center at Radnor Varsity field to lead off the third inning. Corelli laced doubles in the first and third innings to lead the Wayne attack. Josh Katz pitched 5 1/3 innings for the win and gave up just six hits. At one point, the right-hander fanned five consecutive Norristown hitters and he ended up with eight strikeouts on the day. Wilson needed just one pitch in relief in the sixth to turn a double play thanks to a leaping grab by Corelli at shortstop. Wilson yielded no hits in his 1 2/3 innings of relief action.

Yardley  3, Wayne 1

Wayne narrowly missed the wild card playoff position and had to settle for being the fifth seed. That earned it a consolation game against pitching-rich Yardley in the consolation round. The tough-luck Bucks County entry had given up just seven runs in its three pool play contests. Wilson singled in the Wayne first inning, stole second, then scored on Corelli's single, but that's all of the offense that Wayne could muster and it went down 3-1 to Yardley. 

Game Recaps


Wayne got two hits each from Connor Wilson, Matty Schaefer and Sean Corelli in a 9-6 setback against Downingtown.

Brian Lucey had three RBIs. 

Anderson Calms Norritons

May 8, 2012


Wayne – 5  Norritons – 4


Bend but not break seemed to be the Wayne Wolverines slogan on Sunday as they earned a hard fought 5-4 win in its first road test in Norristown.


Starting pitcher Brian Lucey put himself into an early hole by allowing the first four batters to reach base.  With nobody out, Lucey calmly fielded a comebacker and got the out at the plate, then notched a key strikeout, and retired the side on a flyball to center field that speedy Connor Wilson corralled to end the inning.


In the second inning, Norritons loaded the bases again before Brandt Anderson came in to a very sticky situation.  After allowing an infield hit for Norritons’ second run, Anderson fanned the meat of the Norritons’ lineup before Matt Schaefer made a great leaping grab of a line drive to end the threat.  Anderson, the winning pitcher, then worked two more strong innings to keep Wayne within striking distance trailing 3-1.


The Wolverines bats came alive in the fifth.  Nick Greco led off with a scorching double down the left field line.  After Zach  Shapiro was hit by pitch, Mike Lanzone singled to score Greco.  Patrick Scheri walked and Garrett McGurl reached on a fielders choice.  Nick Wojtelwicz infield hit brough home another run and Wayne took a 5-3 advantage.


Wojtelwicz worked a scoreless fifth to keep Wayne ahead.  Greco gave up an unearned run in the sixth, but held on to earn the save and give Wayne its third straight victory to start off the 2012 campaign.


The Wolverines, two time defending Main Line champions, are back in action on Saturday with a doubleheader on the road versus Boyertown and Newtown.

GET HIM TO THE GREEK:  Nick Greco belts a double in the fifth to lead Wayne to its third victory of the season.  Greco has been the key to the Wayne offense in the early going with 6 hits in 12 at bats including 2 doubles, a triple, and 5 RBI. 


Greco's Blast Cools Heat

April 29, 2012


Wayne - 12  Haverford - 11
Nick Greco's triple in the bottom of the 7th scored Patrick Scheri and Sean Corelli to give Wayne a 12-11 win over the Haverford Heat on Sunday, April 29.  Connor Wilson earned the win.
  ASSIST -- Wayne second baseman Nick Wojtelwicz appears to make a great play on this popup, but the ball squirted out of his glove and right into the hands of center fielder Connor Wilson. 

Corelli Conquers Conestoga

April 30, 2012
Wayne - 13  Conestoga - 5
Sean Corelli pitched 3 scoreless innings and helped himself with 2 base hits to lead Wayne to a 13-5 opening season win against neighboring Conestoga.  Nick Greco and Zach Shapiro both had 2 hit games.
