Frosties complete amazing turnaround and take the league championship

August 18, 2012
As the Frosties closed the regular season dropping 10 of their last 14 games, the team knew it had to turn it around - and quick - to get back on the winning pace the players on this team were so used to over the years.  After 4 1/2 years of close calls towards league championships and difficult first-round exits - the Frosties focus did turn the fates around and led to a Frosty summer championship witha 2 out of 3 game win over Finleys Thursday night at Fireman's Field in Lindenhurst.
After Finleys took game one by 4 runs, the Frosties took games 2 and 3 wire-to-wire leading the entire way.  The Frosties' new-found focus and effort made all the difference in the win.  Each and every player stepped up in their own individual way that led to the ultimate team victory to capture the league championship.
Unanimous voting put Bobby "MVP" Versacci as league and playoffs MVP.  Bobby had a tremendous first-year campaign and an even better performance when the lights were brightest in the playoffs as Bobby blasted 5 HRs and knocked in 13 RBI on the night.
The amazing Frosty performances did not stop there as in no particular order: Anthony "Boom Boom" Bruno with a near-perfect game 3 at the plate with clutch hit after clutch hit and also flashing his sure-handed glove at short.  Coach Freddo - who smacked a HR in game one and had two big laser beams in game 3 - also made the tough choices and took all responsibility for roster moves and lineup changes that ultimately led to Frosty success.  Lou "the Natural" Ohle - who finished up games 2 and 3 on an 8-9 tear, also blasting two HRs on the night.  Tom "the Chair" Frem - who came alive in game 3 to blast a mammoth HR and knock in 5.  Dom "Rescue Dawg" Toscano - who came up tremendously big in game 3 with a perfect batting performance including a HR and 4 RBI.  Artie "Pants" Maisano - who shored up 3rd base, smacked an HR, and had 6 hits on the night.  Glenn "G" Graepel who had an amazing game 2, smoking 2 HRs and driving in 6.  The CCD who picked up two hard fought wins in games 2 and 3.  Chris "PBJ" Catania who kept right field secure and kept timely hits coming.  Tom "TK" Kalina had more timely hits including a bomb in game 2.  Brian "the dirtiest player in the game" Goerke who held down Finleys bats to a minimum in game 1.  And finally, John "Woodness" Woodworth - who simply belongs in the Long Island Softball Hall of Fame.
Well that's it for the regular season and playoffs.  Do the Frosties set their sights on the Tournament of Champions?  The CCD says keep the train moving and let's go for the gold!!  I guess I'll just need to stay tuned!!
Great season.  TEAM effort all around!!!!

Rumor mill on fire with Frosty reunion talk.  GOOD GOD.  Stay tuned.  


Team History

The Frosty Dawgs/Balls/Troise are a veteran enterprise -- the result of a well-publicized merger between the 2007 Fall League Champion Frosty Balls and periennial ABA powerhouse Dawgs.  The Frosty Balls franchise was spun off from 4-time ABA champion Armored Saint.  Armored Saint was spun off from Island Slowpitch powerhouse Blue Thunder run by Joe "King of All Softball" Gonzalez.  The Dawgs, who have gone through at least three major restructuring efforts during their 8+ year existence, have a resume of three ABA titles.
The Frosty Dawgs and their affiliates have won major titles in several years in both Nassau and Suffolk County: 

2003 - Fall Suffolk ABA "D" Champions 
2004 - Summer Nassau ABA "C" Champions 
2005 - Summer Nassau & Suffolk ABA "C" Champions
2006 - Fall Suffolk ABA "C" Champions/Fall New Alliance Divisional Champions
2007 - Fall New Alliance League Champions
2009 - Summer Heat ISA E Tournament Champions 
2010 - ABA One-Pitch Tournament "A/B" Champions
