10 U Travel
10U TRAVEL SEASON A SUCCESS
The 10u travel team went into the season knowing that they were using the season to develop players at positions, all around the field and pitcher, that they do not normally play. Knowing that all teams made the playoffs, wins and losses were secondary. After finishing the season at 3-9 and a #6 seed in the playoffs, they decided to turn it up a notch.
Their final regular season game was agains playoff-bound Hawthorne and the Golden Bears won that game 4-3. Michael Rizzo pitched four innings of 1-hit, no run ball, before giving way to Xavier Mieles for the final two innings. Rizzo also starred at the plate going 2-2 with two doubles and 3 RBI. Rizzo was later driven in by a Billy Mareski Sac Fly. This would give the Golden Bears momentum heading into the playoffs.
10U Travel Playoffs
The 10u Golden Bears notched wins against #3 seed Ridgewood, by a score of 10-9 in 7 innings, and #2 seed Glen Rock, by a score of 20-13, in the first two rounds of the playoffs thrusting them into the NJSBL Championship game on Sunday, July 24, in Riverdale.
In the game against Ridgewood (a team that defeated the Golden Bears twice this year), the team needed to come back from an 8-2 deficit in the last inning in order to take the game to extra innings. The six runs in the last inning marked the second time in two weeks the team came back from as many runs in the last inning. The sixth inning started with an infield single by Nate Eckert, followed by Rizzo & Czarniewy walks. Then Billy Mareski roped a 2-run single, Xavier Mieles hit an RBI single and Nick Adamo hit an RBI double down the right field line, and then Matteo Morelli capped off the scoring with a 2-run double to complete the 6-run comeback.
In the 7th inning, Rizzo started the rally with a single to left field and Anthony Pizzuti reached via error. Those two batters were followed by a Bobby Czarniewy RBI and a Nick Adamo RBI walk.
The bears received four innings of solid pitching to start the game by Pizzuti and Rizzo pitched the final three innings to pick up the win.
10u Travel Semi-Finals
Versus Glen Rock, the Golden Bears bats were alive and working from the start of the game...after a few walks, the team got RBI singles from Xavier Mieles, Matteo Morelli, Jalen Maharaja (fielder's choice) and Nate Eckert and the inning was capped off by a 3-run triple by Anthony Pizzuti (which would have made the score 10-0 but there is an 8 run limit per inning). Unfortunately the Bears lead soon evaporated and the score was 12-10 after three innings. After Billy Mareski's solo home run in the second inning, to get to 12 runs, the Golden Bears received RBI singles from Maharaja, Mieles in the fourth inning and an RBI single from Pizzuti in the fifth inning. And after two Glen Rock runs in the fifth, the game was knotted at 13-13.
Then the bats woke up again...After three consecutive singles by Matteo Morelli, Jalen Maharaja and Cam Werner, Nate Eckert added an RBI single to give Lyndhurst the 14-13 lead, and then Michael RIzzo ripped a 3-run triple to right-center to seal the win, but Billy Mareski then launched his second home run of the game to finish the scoring. The Bears won 20-13.
Some Stats from the game -
Eckert (2 hits, 2 runs, 1 Rbi) Rizzo (2 hits, 2 runs, 3RBI), Pizzuti (2 hits, 4 RBI), Czarniewy (2 hits, 3 runs, RBI), Mareski (3-3, 4 runs, 4 RBI, 2 HR's) Mieles (3 hits, 2 RBI), Morelli (2 hits, 2 runs, 2 RBI), Maharaja (2 hits, 2 runs, 2 RBI) Werner (3 hits, 2 runs), Anthony (1 run)
10u Travel Championship Game
Lyndhurst faced a tough pitcher to start the game and couldn't get anything going until the fourth inning when Michael Anthony walked and Nate Eckert singled, followed by a Michael Rizzo walk to load the bases. After an RBI fielder's choice by Anthony Pizzuti, Bobby Czarniewy and Billy Mareski had RBI singles. In the sixth inning trying to mount a comeback, Michael Anthony again walked and was then doubled over to third base by Michael Rizzo. Pizzuti then singled in M. Anthony, and that would do it for the Golden Bears as they fell short to the NJ Glory Club baseball team 11-4 in the finals.
It was an overall great year by out 10 year olds. Congrats on everything you accomplished this year.

LYNDHURST BEARS 6 - RIDGEWOOD MAROON 4
On Saturday afternoon on Deloy field, the 8u boys took to the diamond and showed incredible heart and fight when they came back from and early 4-0 deficit to over take Ridgewood and win 6-4. On the first pitch of the game, the Ridgewood lead off batter laced a rocket line drive which was snagged by shortstop Jayson Bellenger on a great defensive play for the first out. But Ridgewood would then get 6 consecutive batters on base leading to 3 runs and the early lead. They would add a 4th run in the second, and again threaten in the 3rd but leave the bases loaded. The bottom half of the 3rd would prove to be the Bears' inning as they would score all 6 of their runs for the deciding margin. Luca Riccio would drive in the first Lyndhurst run, with a walk - Anthony Ricigliano, who lead off with a single. Landon Bonilla, Ryan Lemanowicz and Bellenger also drove in Lorenzo Bufi, Joey Brennen and Riccio which tied the score at 4. With 2 outs, Matt Jarvis got a huge base hit to give the Bears the lead when he drove in Lemanowicz. Max Gonzalez capped off the scoring when he walked in Bellenger for the 6-4 lead. Bellenger came on in relief of Alex DiMase, and got the win with 2 scoreless innings. Tyler Herman got the save with the final 2 innings of work. With the bases loaded in the last inning, Herman got the final batter to ground out to Bellenger at short, who flipped to Jarvis at 3rd base to end the Ridgewood threat. The Bears had earned a hard-fought win!
TEANECK 13 - LYNDHURST 3
After a big win Saturday, the Bears headed to Teaneck on Sunday morning to close out the spring travel season against the top, and undefeated, team in the NJSBL. Lyndhurst came out swinging in the 1st when both Ryan Lemanowicz smashed a hard line drive to second base and Tyler Herman bombed a shot deep to center. Both were robbed of hits by amazing defensive plays by Teaneck. But, it was evident that the Bears wouldn't lie down for the first place team. Teaneck would jump out to an early lead though, and ultimately win big late in the game, but not without a Lyndhurst fight. Alex DiMase had 2 RBIs, one of them on a hard single in the 2nd that gave the Bears their first run. Max Gonzalez walked twice and scored 2 of the 3 Lyndhurst runs. Ryan Brown was a bright spot on the mound, when he pitched a scoreless 3rd inning, striking out the side and keeping the Bears in the game. Lyndhurst ends the spring season with a record of 2-6, but despite that, showed tremendous improvement and great heart for a very young and inexperienced team, especially in the final 5 games of the season in which they won 2 (and 2 of the losses were by only 1 run).
