October 1995 Mike Maconi assembles and Manages 1st Florida Fall Classic Team

Year:      October, 1995


Location:  Clearwater, Florida


Team Name:  South Jersey Rockies


Age Group:  40+


Manager: Mike Maconi


Roster:  Players from SJMSBL league on the team were: 

1) Joe Cranmer, 2) Frank Eberhart, 3) Jack Gaffney, 4) Steve Gaunay (still in league plays with 45+ Black Marlins), 5) Mike Maconi, 6) Tom Martino, 7) Gary Mueller, 8) Wayne Phillips, 9) Gary Rodriguez (still in league plays with 45+ Black Marlins) and 10) Ed Skowronski.  We had 5 pool players:  1) Keith Duke from Ft. Myers, FL, 2) Ray Idzior from St. Louis, MO, 3) David Montgomery from Clearwater, FL, 4) Mike Montgomery from Clearwater, FL, and 5) Steve Parks from Memphis, TN.


Record:  1-4   Lost to Huntsville Twins, Baltimore Baseball Club, Kennett Square 40+ and Puerto Rico.  We beat Capitol District from Albany, NY.


Tournament:  There were two divisions in the 40+.  Division I had Atlanta Southside, Altoona, Central Jersey  Cobras, Greenville Cardinals, Huntsville Rockies, Southern Maryland 40+ and St. Croix 40+.  Division II was Baltimore Baseball, Capitol District, Huntsville Twins, Kennett 40+, N.W. Georgia 40+, Puerto Rico, South Jersey Rockies.  There wasn’t a A and a B division, the teams were equally divided into two divisions.  Can’t remember who won the tournament.


Highlight of tournament:  We played Puerto Rico in our 5th and final game.  Our record was 1-3 and out of the playoffs. Puerto Rico was 4-0 and crushing everyone.  We took a 5-0 lead after 1 inning.  The manager of Puerto Rico got scared, and put in his ace to pitch the rest of the game.  The entire PR team was pissed that he “wasted” their best pitcher on us.  They ended up winning something like 15-8…..but PR, who was the favorite to win it all, lost their first playoff game because they wasted their ace against us.
