L & P started the season 1-7, then had their players start to show full time and went on an amazing roll.  They finished the regular season 10-10 and in 5th place.  They swept all three rounds of the playoffs finishing with Donatos.  So in their final 18 games played they were 15-3.  L&P was led by their pitching, Joey D'angelo was the workhorse throwing gem after gem.  Ron Lam was equally effective.  Their offense had many stars including but not limited to Chris Garcia (League MVP, Tom Bracco award), Jeff Suarez, Buddy Rupp, Mike, Babakis, Jared Delmar, Craig Longo & Danny O'Brien to name a few.  Steve Schwartz Nick Chausey and the Durante brothers all had solid seasons and helped keep the team together during their slow start.  Good job fellas.


Jeff Suarez was the Championship MVP. 


Runner up Donatos had a solid season all around:

Newcomers Rey Toro and Joe Tronolone were awesome additions and big pick ups,  big seasons from Vinny Mazza (injuries could have cost this team first place), John Manuellian's 42 RBI's were the most in current league history (since 2010), and Jeff Scire (most runs scored this year). 

Team was rounded out by solid play from Anthony Sutter, Jorge Beritian, Gordon Rugg, Kevin Rugg, John Spinelli and John Decro.

Rules and Conduct

September 26, 2016

Rules were discussed before the season at meetings that were not well attended.  If you have any questions on the rules, please call me to discuss them or if you need a copy.


I have been asked for a couple of years to get new umpires at 50, I did.  They are good umpires but there is definately a learning curve.  The pitching is unlike any other leagues and they are new to it, it will take time.  Also, remember  I have explained the strike zone to the umpires and asked them to  give the pitchers the high strike.   Like anything else I will dicsuss the zone again with them. 


Lastly, guys these guys are good they are in the right position and they have been reccommended by a couple of different sources.  Lets be courtesous in our discussions.  I understand in the heat of the moment you can be upset but they are doing the best they can while learning. Also there are neighbors, that dont want to hear you curse. 


I am making calls to all the managers to go over any queestions and complaints  Thank you for your understanding.

At 75, The Aces scored 4 runs in the last inning to get a split against "On Paper". 

In the second set L &P came back in game two to get a split against USC. 

Opening Day

August 29, 2015

Opening day is upon us.  I have been going through alot of personal turmoil this year and I am behind in setting up league.  Here are some last minute items:

First off welcome back all the old teams and a special welcome to the new team Moe's.  Lets make them feel comfortable.  

This is a tough week for all teams involved with vacations,  we could talk about next year waiving this week and playing a scheduled saturday game. 

All fees must be paid before the second week of the season.  You must seek me out.  

Email me a tentative roster at phillybbop@yahoo.com so I can get a jump start in setting up teams on website. 

Since attendance was light for rules meetings, I have made the following decisions:

1) I have reverted back to two courtesy runners except for injury.  

2) Tie breakers are as follows: Head to head,  run differential in head to head games, run differential in total games.

3) Playoffs are as follows Top 8 teams  1vs 8 2 vs 7 3 vs 6 4 vs 5.  We will reseed in the second round in case of upset

4) Top seed gets the choice of field and time.  Second seed the third seed.  In the second round the top seed picks the field (games are at 9am) The other game will be at the other field. 

5) Finals are at 75 

6) Be aware that these are public fields and they can be taken from us, so clean up your mess (dont let the custodian get pissed), kids go to this school so dont bring glass to the fields, do not block someone's drive way. 

Lastly, THERE is no fighting on the field. I dont care if its after/before or during the game.  If there is a fight at field there will be a suspension for the first incident.  If it happens again the suspension will be indefinite.  

Have a great season.  Call me with any questions.

My number is 718-679-3134 

Not a great turnout for meeting

July 22, 2015

So we are not changing much from last year,  See me for fees, schedules ect. 


Two items did come up from teams that showed up

1) Jay Lane has asked that the second round of playoffs the second seed will get the option of field and time.  In the past, the first place team picked field at 9am and the second set had to go to the other field. 

2) the championship be played alternatively at 50 and 75. 


I would like to hear from your managers.

Season to start on August 30th

July 17, 2015

We are having a final meeting next week date TBD.  Season will open up on August 30th. We are planning for a special guest to throw out the first ball of season Nicky Lynch.  Nicky was a SI Padre baseball player on my son's team from 5 to 11 years old.  He came from a great family.  I recently found out that he had a brain tumor removed and was undergoing treatment.  I decided to participate in the NYC Brain Tumor Walk and with the help of Mikey Bagels we raised $250 from player in the league. the donation was listed as Robert Kelly Softball on the NYC Brain Tumor Walk website.  The site is still open for any donations.  Team Nicky http://www.braintumorcommunity.org/site/TR/TeamraiserEvents/NewYorkBrainTumorWalk?px=3523214&pg=personal&fr_id=2500

We will have 10 teams this year and there have been some defections so it should be an exciting year.  I will ask managers to send me a prelim roster to set up on website at phillybbop@yahoo.com  We named the division after Robert Columbia this year. 

We have the fields from August 23rd for anyone to play exhibition games.

Congratulations to the 2014 Champs Alexa Rose

November 18, 2014

In an exciting three game set played at 75 Alexa Rose defeated top seed USC.  In the first game Alexa Rose opened the game with 2 runs in the top of the first with RBI singles by Shawn Lombardo and Frank Russo.   Sal Zaccarello RBI single in the thirs fame Alexa Rose a 4-0 lead.  Pitcher Chris Larkin was keeping the powerful USC bats on ice in the cold weather.  In the top of the 6th Alexa Rose increased the lead to 8-0 with RBI hits by Matt Brady, Lombardo, Russo and Zaccarello.   USC closed out the scoring with 1 in the 6th and 2 in the 7th for a final of 8-3.

In game two, USC opened the scoring with a 2 run HR from Vinny Garcia.  The Costello brothers Andrew and Marty contributed with 4 hits and 2 RBI's as USC and pitcher Frank Tripodi shut out Alexa 7-0.   Setting up the deciding third game. 


Alexa Rose opened the scoring with a Vinny Demetrio Sac Fly in the 1st.  USC came right back in the bottom of the inning with Sal Baio and Matt Helman driving in 2 runs to take the lead.  Alexa Rose took over the game with 6 runs in the 3rd inning Led by Vinny Demetrio RBA single Shawn Lombardo 2run  hit.  The final score 7-3. 

Stats are updated for playoffs

November 13, 2014

All the stats are updated and listed under the handouts section.  Congrads to Alexa Rose and USC for making the finals.  A new champ will reign.  So at 50 it took three games but USC defeated TPL.  Both teams showed that they are champions and neither team gave up.  At 75 Alexa Rose came out swinging and took game one.  The jumped out to an early lead in game two before Catello came roaring back to tie the game.  In extra innings Alexa Rose took a two run lead going to the bottom of the 7th but Catello showed why they won the championship last year scoring one run and had the tying run on third and the winning run on second before Chris Larkin got the third out.  Some controversy in this game on a rule for which I will explain.  The rule states that you can go from 8 players to 9 but the 9th man is an automatic out.  And you may add a fielder before the 4th inning. So the implied rule is if you go from 9 players to 10 then the 10th man is an out.  I will make a change in the off season to better word this rule.  


After the game was over, an incident occurred on the field that needs to be addressed after the season.  This situation cannot be allowed in this league. 

Also, we must keep in mind that this is a public field and there are neighbors to keep happy.  I am asking all of you to clean up the field and not to double park this week.  

Alexa Rose vs USC.  The number one vs the number two team.  Great match up with the new and improved Alexa Rose adding Sal Zaccarello, Paul Nigro and Matt Giobbi to an already good roster.  And is this the year USC finally closes out the season as champions.  Newcomber Vinny Rivera joins a remarkable team.  Lets see. 

I have a prior engagement and my dad is in the hospital so Mike Gannone will be at the field to hand out the trophies and the winnings.  The MVP will be decided by Mike and the two umpires.  All other awards will be handed out after the season.  


We will have a after season meeting to go over the season and to see if we want to change any rules.  This was one of the more successful years as many of the teams had a legitimate chance to win this year.  I want to make the league even better next year so I am up for suggestions.

The playoffs at 50 in the play in game.  Bungalow defeated Pauls Glass Padres 13-8  Winning pitcher Edgar Gonzales hit a tying HR in the 3rd to lead the way.  They gained the right to play the 1st place USC.  USC pounded Bungalow led by Sal Baio and Vinny Garcia 6 hrs between them.  In the second set a rematch of last years finals of Donatos vs Catello Elctric.  Donatos won the first game, but defending Champ Catello Electic showed the heart of a champion by pounding the ball to win the next two.  They were led by Nelson Rivera 3 HR and with one of the grittiest performances seen in this league John Tronolone pulled a hammy but continued to play and struck for 6 hits  many off the fence where he was able to limp to first.  In addition he continued his vacuum play at third.  

Over at 75 was a day of sweeps.  In the morning games, the wiley vetern team of TPL defeated L&P.  They were led by the offense of Larry MErrill and Anthony Noto and the pitching of Chuck D'Amodio.  Jon Manuelian hit a grandslam in the first game to ice the victory.

Things looked bleak for USC Down 8-4 in the 5th inning and Steve Mavis injured his ankle.  Bases loaded no outs when the Aces Juan Cruz hit a smash to third.  In a blink of an eye there was an around the horn triple play and the king of the regualr season was on the way.  Int he 7th USC scored 6 runs to take the lead and held off the ACES 12-10. In the Secind game  USC was up 7-4 in the last inning when Phil Lee hit a towering shot into the RF trees that looked like a game tying HR.  A few seconds later the ball fell into MAtt Helmans glove for another triple play.  Amazing.  

In the second set  Donatos swept Alexa Rosa. 


At 75, TPL opened their season with a 14-4 rout over L&P when they decided to talk legend Mydo Perrancino out of retirement. What did he do. Pitch a brillant game 4-2 win.  

In the second set, Pauls Glass Padres was winning 4-2 in the bottom of the 7th inning when disaster struck and Bungalow/Griffs scored 3 runs for the win.  In game two, pauls glass scored 2 in the bottom of the 7th to tie game only to lose in the 9th.  In this game, Bungalow'2 Tom Loughran continued his mastery over pitcher Phil Bracco with a towering HR.  Also, Pauls Glass lost Nick Yodice and Joe Petro to injuries for a couple of weeks.

Opening Day

August 27, 2014

Opening Day turned into sweeps weeks. 

USC v. Bungalow - USC picking up where they left off last year in their domination of the regular season. Taking two games from Bungalow, USC coming back with vengeance to win that championship they felt was theirs last year. Anthony Dondiego & Frank Tripodi surrendered 4 runs in two games while the team collected 39 hits for them.


Aces v. Paul Glass Padres – Aces proved that Paul’s Glass was breakable by scoring a total of 38 runs in the doubleheader. Joe Crispy & Lance Sigman led the way for their team combining for a total of 11 RBI’s between both of them The Ace’s making a statement this year that they’re still one of the powerhouses in this league.


Alexa Rose v. L & P – This was by far the games of the weekend. Going down to the wire Alexa Rose was able to squeak out 2 wins Sunday. Scoring 6 runs in the bottom of the 7t allowed Alexa Rose to make a huge comeback and steal the first game. The second game Alexa Rose needed to depend on their defense holding off L & P threat for a comeback of their own. Mike Zaccariello mashed for his team collecting 3 homers and 7 RBI’s in the 2 game set. After the game Mike Russo was heard stating these were 2 “mint” wins for Alexa Rose.


TPL, Donatos and Catello Electric open their season September 7th






July 23, 2014

The start of the season is right around the corner and player movement speculation is running rampart.  Who is jumping teams? Who is retiring? Is there new players being added?   We shall see in the next few weeks. 


The schedule for 9 teams is finished and will be distributed soon.  I am waiting to see if we pick up a tenth team. 


The rules have been uploaded. 


Chucky has started some discussion in the social media on who were the all time best hitters in this league's history.  The consensus was that it had to be one of the players from JR's. 

This brings me to another poll.  Who is the best team of all time. 









September 12, 2014



First Favre, now D’Amodio launches comeback bid
If NFL quarterback Brett Favre can once again come out of retirement, then so can Joe D’Amodio.
And that is exactly what the 43-year-old infielder intends to do in the Robert Kelly Memorial Fall Hardtop League.
But instead of donning his usual Ted Parnese Law uniform, D’Amodio will wear the blue and white of perennial league playoff contender Coachways on Sept. 12, a rare Saturday doubleheader in the loop.
D’Amodio, who sat out all but one week last season, is anxious to get back on the playing field.
"There’s a great opportunity here for this team to win a championship," he said. "Coachways is loaded with a lot of talented players. They came close to winning it all the past few years. Can I help them win it all? I’d like to think so."
D’Amodio, who first retired in 2005 but came back to play later that season for Parnese, said he was talked out of retirement this time by longtime friend Phil Bracco, a current pitcher on Coachways.
"He said we started out together back in this league in 1987 and that we should finish our careers together this season," laughed D’Amodio. "We won the title that year and the hope is we can do it again."
The Manahawkin, N.J., resident, who twice batted .600 or better in the league during his stellar career, said he’s wants to help Coachways in any capacity he can.
"Pinch-run, pinch-hit, play the infield, play the outfield ... whatever they want, I’ll do," said D’Amodio. "Hey look, I’m old and out of shape and I don’t even know if I can still play, but I’m going to give it a try."
Bracco, whose father Tom discovered D’Amodio in 1982 while driving up D’Amodio’s Eltingville block, knows his childhood friend still has what it takes.
"This makes our team stronger," says Bracco. "His heady play in the field and steady bat will make all the difference."
The righty-swinger, who hopes to at least play the required four weeks to qualify for the playoffs, originally had planned to play with Coachways full-time.
"My mind said one thing, but my body said I couldn’t," explained D’Amodio. "Having to commute 150 miles round trip to play softball on a Sunday morning after commuting back and forth from work all week takes its toll. I hope Coach Dondiego and the rest of the guys understand that. Plus, I have two daughters and I missed a lot of their activities working weekends at the paper (the Staten Island Advance) all these years and now they’re playing travel softball on Sundays and I didn’t want to miss all of those games. I learned the last few years, it’s not about me, it’s about my kids."
D’Amodio leaves behind a Parnese squad, which copped the league championship last year and two out of the last three. Parnese and Coachways met in the first week of the season two weeks ago. There’s a chance D’Amodio could face his former teammates come playoff time.
"It’ll be fun and strange playing them if that happens," said D’Amodio. "I have a lot of friends there. They’re a bunch of great players who have worked hard to get to the top of the heap in this league.
"I’m sure Chucky’s not happy about this, but he’ll get over it. Parnese is doing just fine without me."

Catello Electric Sweeps Donatos for the Title

Stats are updated and posted.

Thanks for a good year and see you next year.  Let the hot stove begin.

Upset Weekend

November 10, 2013

In a rematch of last years championship, Donatos exacted sweet revenge bu defeating TPL in three games.  In game 1, TPL opened up with 5 runs in the first inning.  The big hit was Anthony Noto's three run HR.  Noto hit another one in the 5th and John Manuellian hit one.  With their backs to the wall Donato's opened up with a huge 1st inning scoring 7.  HR's by Gordon Rugg and Anthony Sutter led the attack.  Now the start of game 3and once again Donato's knock in three in the 1st inning.  Gordon Rugg hit a 2 run HR and Phil Paterno singled in another.  Gordon had a 2 run double in the 4th and Anthony Sutter smashed anohter HR. 


At 75, the powerful USC team was shut down by Tom Sliger and the Catello team.  Game 1 Catello started in early with three runs in 1st and 4 more in the 2nd (Charlie Donoghue 2 run triple.  Gary Minervini had three rbI's and Dom Catello was 3-3.  USC showed the heart of a champ scoring 4 runs in the 6th inning for a 4-2 win  Mike O'Halloran had a 3 run HR in the inning. 


Now we started game 3, and Catello scored 7 runs in the first 2 innnings.  Vic ROmano 2 run double in the first started them up. 


This sets up the Final and for the 1st time in 11 years either the Aces or TPL are not in the final.  A good run boys. 


Catello Electric vs Donato's Plumbing 9am at 75. 



WOW there were almost upset

November 5, 2013

USC finished the regular season undefeated but survived a scare against Bungalow.  USC was mercied in the first game 18-5 as Brian Cunningham had a big day.  In the second game USC jumped out to an early lead and held on for a 18-9 win.  In the third game USC won easlily 13-3. 

TPL swept the ACES.  7-2 and 10-0.  Jorge Beritian and John Manuelllian were the big hitters.


In the morning games at 50 Alexa Rose defeated Donatos 4-3 in the first game, Steve Scotto was 3-3.  Darren Miller had 5 hits for ALexa Rose but Donatoes woke up with HRs by Anthony SUtter (2), Kevin RUgg, Gordon Rugg and John Spinelli won the next two games 7-5 and 8-1. 

Catello Electric swept L & P 15-2 and 9-8.  Charlie Donaghue had 5 hits for Catello.  Jay Harrell and Dom Catello had HR's also,.


This sets up the semi's with USC vs Catello at 75 and TPL vs Donatos at 50. 


Its time to start thinking about the All Star Ballots. Take a look at the stats,  each manager, league official,  umpire and main scorekeepers will get a vote.   


Playoff stats are under the handouts section.



8:30 at 75  USC vs Bungalow  2 out of 3

12:00 at 75  TPL vs ACES


12 at 50  Catello vs L & P

8:30  50 Donato's vs Alexa Rose


Unfortunately, the marathon is this week.  Some teams will be shorthanded but for those who live in Brooklyn you could come here before the bridge closes or for later games you can get to SI through NJ.  I know that is a big pain but try to get here for the playoffs. 

USC finished undefeated this year with a little help from a controversial triple play.  With the bases loaded and no outs the ACES were within seconds of tying the game when The Aces batter hits a smash to third.  Marty Costello fileds the ball very near the foul line (some thought it was foul) and steps on third throws to second and the relay get the batter for a triple play.  Great play by Costello.  Was it fair was it foul with our replay we will never know. 

In another odd moment at 50.  In a tie game (4thh inning) 5-5, Donatos batter hits a smash to RF.  It hits the tree in RF and somehow slowly rolls under the fence in the RF corner.  The Umpire ruling gave the batter third base.  THIRD BASE in essence a Ground Rule Triple.  The Padres argued the call to no avail.  But here is the odd part;  later in the inning Donatos batter hits the ball off of the left field fence, the ball hits the pole and bounces out into the street. WAIT how many times have you seen the ball go out of  play in RF and LF in the same inning.  This one was called a Ground Rule double.  Needless to say there will be a ruling later in the week on balls that leave the field of play at 50.  The final result was a Donatos thrashing of the Padres 17-5. 

Lets wish Anthony Dondiego a speedy recovery.

Umpire Discussion

September 27, 2013

I spoke to Mitch on the recent calls from umps. 

1) Padres  vs ACES play at plate.  Padres runner was out at plate and they argued that Aces catcher blocked plate with out the ball.  (Great play by Brian).   Since ball was in flight and on infield this was technically the correct call.  I ask you if in fact we should amend the rule to give the runner a small pathway to the plate to aviod possible collisions. 

2) TPL vs Bungalow - umpire called Bungalow runner out on interference on a ball hit between pitcher and the catcher.  Catcher and runner ran into each other.  Technically correct call but it was borderline. 

3) Illegal pitches. - will be inforced.  Amended rule to give 3 warning before removal/

4) Balls and strikes - I stressed that this is a lob ball league 3-6 arc.  The high strike should be called.

On the good sidw we have had many babies born.  Lets hope they are future players. 


The last item : During the ALexa Rose vs TPL game a play happened which is not addressed in our rules. So we will clarify here.  A batter swung and hit the balll into the ground.  (Chopped )  As long as the batter swings hard and through (no swinging bunts) the play will be allowed. 


Season to start August 25th.

August 20, 2013

As of right now we have 9 teams and I will close out the registration on Sunday.  If we have 9 teams each team will play 16 games and have one week bye.  I would like to propose that the first 7 teams will make the playoffs and the 8 and 9th place team have a one game playoff to receive the last seed.  Here is how it works:  8 vs 9 on Sat one game with the winner going to Sunday 2 out of 3 against the 1st place team.  This way each team will have a minimum of 17 games played for the year. 


I am going to be able to get balls between 75 and 80 a doz (depending on the number of dozen I order).  Please let me know ASAP.  


Rules are online and the rest of the schedule will be posted by Monday night. 


Have a good season and play ball.



Season to start August 25th.

August 14, 2013

The season is set to get under way on August 25th.  At this time there are 9 teams.  We are still looking for 1 more.  I will be meeting with you to collect fee and give out 1st week schedule.  This will give me one more week to get the last team.  CALL ME to set up appointment.

In the last 11 years  Ted PArnese Law and the Aces have won 5 championships each and USC one.  The all time leader is JR's with 8 championships.  

Who can win it this year?  


Chris Walsh is a honest local South Shore guy running for councilman.  He is looking for your vote.

All star

December 19, 2012

I know I owe you guys the stats for the finals.  I will get to soon.

In lieu of an All Star game, I put the note out there to vote on the All Robert Kelly League Team.   Each voter had there own criteria. the only request I had was that they qualified for the playoffs.  


I thought of how this should go and I decided on this:  I calculated each player total votes and then put them in the position most voted for.  ie Noto got a vote for 3B (???) since he was a SS this year it got added to his SS totals.  The players voted for DH on the ballets were given a position.  ie Harrell was given 1B.  If there was a tie I gave the outcome to the player who got the most votes at the position.  The top two players after the postiion players are decided will be the EH.  I am also going to list a couple of close calls.  Remember this was for fun so don't be mad.

1B    John manuelian   TPL

2b    Gordon Rugg       Donatos

SS    Anthony Noto       TPL

3B    Craig Longo         L&P

c      Jeff hawthorne      USC

P     Jorge Beritian        TPL

OF    Sal Baio              USC

OF    Chris Cooper       USC

OF     MAtt Hellman     USC

OF  Alex Copobianco    Aces

EH   Jay Harrell           catello

EH   Rey Toro             Catello


Just missed 

Mike Zaccarello            Mikey Bagels

Vinny Mazza               TPL

Steve Spinelli             Donatos

charlie Donoghue        Catello

I received a good recommendation for next year.  the managers submit the positions eligible for voting. 


2012 playoff stats are set under the handouts section

December 29, 2012

Look at you may.  Sorry so late.

The Robert Kelly Allstar team is in the voting stage

November 26, 2012

Each team can give one vote, the scorekeepers and the umpires also. Here are the positions:


I have collected 4 ballets so far. Send me a ballet to phillybbop@yahoo.com. A player needs to have at least qualified for the playoffs to be considered but to receive my vote they needed a min of 10 games.

The stats are on the system.

Remember this is for fun so lets take it for what it is.


December 4, 2012
Its official, with a DH sweep over Donatos this week (4-0 and 6-3), TPL has cemented its position as one of the best teams in the 25 year history of the Robert Kelly Softball League. In the first game, Jorge Beritan pitched a shut out and John Manuelian made two sparkling over the shoulder catches. Jay Lane also starred in the DH.

TPL has now won 5 out of the last 7 years to join The Aces and JR Restaurant as multiple year dynasties.

This year was extremely tough for TPL squad as they lost Sal Gianone early in the season to injury. What was manager Chuck D'Amodio going to do but reach out to Mike Anderson.

TPL is the example of a true team. Yes the are led by power hitting and slick fielding John (Boomer) Manuelian and league leading RBI man Anthony Noto but they couldn't win without hard hitting Jay Lane and Drew Clapp.

They defense is stellar with sure handedness at every position, especially in the OF led by CF's Mike Piccarelli and leadoff spark plug Vinny (Suits) Mazza, Jeff Fortune and Mike Anderson.

When you speak of TPL you think of their pitching. Jorge Beritan has one of the highest winning percentages in the history of the league and the ever crafty Chuck D'Amodio. Chuck has turned down the antics this year but keeps on winning,

The catching is led by John O'Connor who always gets the big hit against USC. Lastly a special mention goes out to the utility player on the team Brian (Happy) Trimboli. Brian was a last minute pick up and proved to be a key member of the team.

I want to mention the key to this team is that the same guys come each week and the fact that they are truly friends, helps with the chemistry. That was the same characteristic of the Aces and JR teams.

Lets hope for another extremely close and competitive 2013.

one more item of note

December 1, 2012
USC catcher Jeff Hawthorne had a great day in a losing effort. Jeff had 5 hits and two intentional walks.

I hope everyone comes by tomorrow and roots for one of the teams in finals.

Finals are set

November 27, 2012
playoffs stats
Wow an interesting day. This is what the Robert Kelly League is all about. There were four good teams and two sets of thrilling playoff series.

First lets say Congrads to the defending champion TPL. They won a hard fought three game set with Catello Electric. Coming back from a 3 run deficit in the bottom of the 7th in game three to win the third and final game 4-3. They showed the heart of a true champion.

In game one, Vinny Maza single in the second gave TPL a 3-2 lead which they held on for a final 4-3. Game two Catello showed that they were here to play pounding TPL 11-4. Jay harrell had a two run HR in the 5th to pull away. That set up the third and final game. Catello opened up in the first with a SAC fly from Russ Stefanski. They increassed the lead in the second on a Dom Catello HR. a Charlie Donahue single in the 6th gave Catello a 3-0 lead going into the bottom on the 7th The new addition to TPL, Brian "Happy" Trimboli opened the inning with a walk. Vinny Mazza's hit a potential DP ball but his hustle beat the throw(in a very close play) to keep the dream alive. Later in the inning Anthony Noto drilled a 2 run single. John Oconner walked to tie the game and Drew Clapp singled in the winning run.

At PS 50, The underdog Donatos team shocked the world with the defeat of USC 2 games to 1. They say good pitching can beat good hitting any day. Here was the prime example, Pete Distefano pitched all three games and held the mighty USC squad to an average of a little over 4 runs a game. In the first game. Anthony Sutter and John Spinelli drove in a run each in the third to take a 3-1 lead. Donatos extended it to 4-1 with a Sutter SAC fly in the fifth. In the bottom of the fifth, Chris Cooper tied the game with one swing of the bat with a 3 run HR. The tie game was short as Pete Destefano singled in the 6th for the lead with the final score 5-4. Game two was a pitching duel. the score was tied 2-2 in extra innings when the USC bats erupted for 4 runs and a 6-2 victory. That led us to the final game three showdown. The Spinelli brothers opened up a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning with RBI singles. The USC squad came right back with a Frank Sansonetti HR. In the bottom of the fourth an unusual play happened. With a man on first, Chris Cooper hit a ball through the trees in right field which hit the fence and the RF appeared to catch the ball. Is it an out is it a hit? Confusion happened and USC ended up with two runners on second base. (One was tagged out) The rule is if the ball hits the tree it can be caught not if it hits the fence. Pete Destafano pitched out of that jam and USC did not score. In the top of the fifth, Donatos put the pressure on with a John Spinelli single. They scored two more in the 6th on a Joe Curro single. USC showed they had something left with a two run single by Matt Helman. But Donatos came right back in the top of the 7th with three uns 2 by Mike Lucca single and one by Phil Paterno. USC did not go quietly scoring one run in the bottom of the inning on a Frank Tripodi single but could not bring the get anymore. Game Set Match 8-4.

Stats are attached

This brings us to the championship this weekend. TPL vs Donatos 9:30 at IS 75. Can DOnatos beat the Aces, USC and TPL to win it all? Will TPL win again? Stay tuned.

Crazy week for RKSL

October 10, 2012
On Sat, swept a tough Padres team 5-3 and 6-3. At 50, on Sunday, a huge USC squad (18 players) pounded Griffs Place in a DH sweep. Sal Baio had 2 HRs, Frank Sansonetti had a 3 run blast and Chris Cooper's grand slam ended the second game. Rodrigo Paris had 3 hits in his last game with USC. In the second set, TPL took a 3-1 lead into the 4th during a steady drizzle. The rain started to come down harder. Mikey Bagels scored 4 runs in the bottom of the fourth to take a 5-3 lead. After the inning, the umps called both managers to a meeting and called the game. The game was official because the losing team batted 4 times. The second game was postponed. At 75, L&P Tree Removal brought Mydo Perrancino out of retirement to help the defeat Catello Electric two games. Craig Longo was 7-8 for L&P. In the second set, The Aces swept SI Bombers in a steady rain. In this game the official scorekeeper went on strike due to the rain. Unsafe work conditions.

On a note USC released Rodrigo Paris and he was picked up by Catello Electric. This was done before USC will miss Rodrigo and will be playing him in a couple of weeks.

Another note, Drew Clapp lost his glove at 50. Please contact me or Chuckie for return of glove.

One more note, I would like to have an all star game on Sat October 27th. Let me know this week if you are interested.

I will post league leaders later.


There is an open roster with two restrictions. 1). You can not play on two teams. 2) you must play in 8 games to qualify for playoffs. If you play for a team and want to go to another team you must get a release from the original team. You will not be allowed to change teams past mid season.

Welcome Antelopes and Viscal Energy to the Robert Kelly Memorial Softball league. In their first appearance, Antelopes broke even with winning one game and losing the other, while Viscal energy didnt has as much luck and lost both their games to a reinvented Mikey Bagels team. Chris Larkin and Vinny Robertini pitched fabulous games for the winners.

Antelopes VS Major League : 1-1, : First game major league won by 18-11 behind the hitting of Jay Harrell ( 2 homeruns and 6 RBI'S).

Kevin Kenny 1st AB was a long HR and his last AB in the DH was another long HR. Welcome to the league. Steve Jackson also had a HR. Griffs Place defeated L&P in a sweep. Timely hitting by Mike Nelson and Jeff Pleszawitsz.

I hope this to be one of the best seasons and good luck to all of the teams playing this year.

Also Trystan will be selling Gatorades, water, and breakfest bars at P.S 50 for the opening weekend.
He will be going back and forth between the two fields. Check back to know when he is coming to your field to bring you all your drinking and eating needs :).
Have a good week and GOOD LUCK!!!


The Aces have returned to the top spot this year with a sweep over Ted Parnese Law. Seth Friedman had a great day offensively while Steve Guarneri and Alex Capobianco smashed HR's in the second game. More to follow

Playoff Thrillers

November 15, 2010
WOW What an exciting day in the Robert Kelly Memorial Hardtop League, All three playoff series went three games. Lets start at PS 50. The Aces vs L & P Tree Removal. The Aces jumped out to a 9-0 lead after one inning as Steve Toscanini led off the bottom of the first with a HR. In the inning the Aces had 2 triples (Steve Guarneri and Steve JAckson) and a HR by Alex Capobianco. Alex hit another HR in the 2nd inning on the way to a 14-2 mercy. L & P showed that they are an up and coming team by taking the second game 6-3. Eric Klaymen 2 run HR put L&P out in front to stay. In the third game L & P jumped out to a three nothing lead on a 2 run single by Joe Lucci and a RBI by Ray Lozada. The Aces came storming back in the bottom of the third with RBI hits by Doro Sperantaz, Steve Toscannini and Brian McDowell. Tom Gulotta grand slam put the game away in the 4th. Aces win 13-8. The second set Donatos vs US Coachways was just as exciting. The USC squad opened up with 2 runs in the first innning with Sal Baio triple and Matt Helman's HR. With USC leading 5-2 in the 5th disaster struck. 1st USC could not score with the bases loaded no out with Donatos making an unusual 3-2-4 double play. In the bottom on the 5th Donoatos bats exploded Joe Curro hit an opposite field triple PK tripled in a run Pete Destefano singled in a run and Gordan Rugg doubled him home. Sal Baio's HR tied the score in the 6th inning and in the bottom of the 6th Mike Lucca single scored Larry Merril for the 7-6 victory. Behind the pitching of Phil Bracco ( 7 hitter) and the hitting of Rodrigo Paris (HR 2 rbi's) USC tied the series at one setting up game three. Matt Helman opened the scoring with a blast in the first. Mike Lucca RBI double tied the score in the second. TJ Dunn 3 run HR gave Donatoes the lead in the third. The USC club put men on base in almost every inning but could not score again off of Pete Destefano (5 hitter) gem. The third game of the day for Pete.

At IS 75, Major League Screen Printing nearly upset Ted Parnese Law, the defending champs, Losing the first game on a grand slam by Anthony Noto. Winning the second game only to be shut out the third game. In the other set, W's defeated the Hitmen 2 games to one to advance to the semi finals. Would have given more info but misplaced the book at the moment. Sorry

Major League Screen Printing ties record

October 11, 2010
Tom Sliger of MLSP pitched a pair of shutouts against Mikey Bagels to tie the league record. These wins propelled them into the 8th and final spot for the playoffs at this moment. TPL crushed SSF and taught the youngsters a lesson with two mercies. A rematched of the Manrissa finals saw a different outcome as W's swept a DH from Mugshots. The once again shorthanded USC split a DH with the 42 boys. USC has gone from undefeated to 7th place in the last 3 weeks. Lets see if they can rebound or continue to flounder. The Aces showed their championship blood with a pair of come from behind wins over L & P Tree Removal. On Saturday the Hitmen swept a DH over Donatos in what were the games of the week.

This week features a bunch of great games. Donatos' vs Aces on Saturday. On Sunday TPL vs USC and Hitmen vs Aces.

Ted Parnese is in a familiar place (1st)

October 1, 2010
Going into last weekend there were 4 undefeated teams, no there are three. W's put a spanking on US Coachways winning a tight opening game 13-12. W's came out hitting as Ray TOrro led off the game with a HR and they kept hitting with a 7 spot. USC showed there heart by tying the score by the 4th. It stayed that way until the 6th when W's scored 5. In the bottom of the 7th USC scored 4 runs and had the bases loaded when Rodrigo Paris smoked a shot to center that was caught. Game over. Tommy Loughran 2 run HR led W's to the sweep 12-4. While Chuckie and a couple of other guys were enjoying Vegas the shorthanded TPL swept Mikey Bagels in a doubleheader. Obviously Chuckie is not needed.

Games of the Week:
sat Hitmen vs USC
Sun Aces vs TPL

Also, due to the rain and the number of make ups there will be no more changing of games, I do not have enough of time to make them up. I still have 5 games to schedule.

Rained Out Again

September 13, 2010
Most of the games were rained out this Sunday. Chuckie Damodio go ahead single led TPL to a comeback 10-6 victory over the 42 Boys. The second game was suspended in the second inning with TPL leading. At IS 75 the Hitmen swept a doubleheader from Mikey Bagels.

!st round is over

November 16, 2009

Here is the scoop: Down 11-6 in the bottom of the 6th, the Aces started their comeback, Phi Lee hit a three run HR to tie the game and Seth Friedman's single won the game. The Aces wanted to keep Donato's down and jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the 1st inning led by Steve Guarneri's 2 run bomb. Phil Lee hit another HR and Steve Toscannini and Alex Copobianco also Hr'ed.

This was the best set of the day. The second game was decided in the top of the 7th when Sal Gianone hit a 2 run bomb over left field. Jon Manuellian hit a moon shot on the roof earlier in the day. Next week the Aces vs USC and the Hitmen vs TPL. Good luck

Playoffs Info

November 11, 2009
1st let me say congrads to all the teams BUT a special one goes to Donatos as a new team sneaking in with the last seed. That gets you a series with the ACES. After years of talking smack, Barlow I mean Simple Seafood jumped into the 7th spot and the 1st time in the playoffs in a long time with a victory over USC on the last day. That got you a series with the Hitmen. Ted PArnese Law once again cannot meet the Aces until the finals. How does Chuckie do it? Crystal ball? I dont know but third place got you a series with W's (Mugshots). USC rebounded from a mid season slump with winning 3 out of 4 on the last day of season to finish 4th and a set with Black Dog Grill. Good luck to all and to all Good night.

W's not penalized for forfeits

September 22, 2009
A ruling was issuesd not to give W's two forfeits for their double header against Hitmen only two losses. There was a playoff game which conflicted with their game here and they called to late to cancel.

Parnese upset

September 26, 2009
The 42 Boys picked up their 1st victory over TPL 3-2. Chuck D'amodio picked up his 1st hit of the year a RBI's single to center in the 2 run 4th but picked up his second loss after 16 straight wins. Paul Stabile was 4-4 and had the game saving over the shoulder (Willie Mays style) catch on Anthony Noto's bomb in the 5th. The 42 boys had to forfeit the second game as one of their players had to go and one got injured.

W's also forfeited their double header against Black Dog Grill.

Guys you need to show up with enough players to play. It is not good for the league to have forfeits. Nobody wants to show up at the field and not play.

Simple Seafood thought this year was different. they came back from a 13 run deficit against Big Nose Kates when in the past they would have folded. In the 1st inning SSF roared out to a 4-0 lead. TPL showed they are the champions and came back with 5 runs in the bottom of 1st (led by Anthony Noto's HR. SSF scored 4 in the 3rd and TPL came right back with 2 in third and 6 in 4th and 6 in the 7th. The next game TPL scored 5 in the 3rd to eventually win 9-3. Next up for SSF USC. USC were DH winners over the 42 boys led by pitching of Phil Bracco and hitting of Sal Baio and Steve Mavis. Dinato's showed the league they are a team to be reconded with as they split with the Aces. Black Dog grill swept big Nose Kates. On Sat the Padres split with the Hitmen. Vinny Robertini of the Padres pitched a great game in game 1 a 3-1 victory. The big Games this week are at 50 the Padres and Black Dog Grill and at 75 TPL and Barios Restaurant Aces.

Big Nose sees it aint so Simple

September 17, 2009
After losing the 1st game Big Nose Kate's scored 14 runs in the 1st inning. Now in past years Simple Seafood (Barlow) would have folded like a tent. But not today, SSF kept scoring runs in bunches to close the gap and won it in the last inning 17-16. Next up a big test with TPL . Black Dog Grill showed that they are a team to be reckoned with when the beat USC in the first game of DH. Coachways won the nightcap to earn a split. The Hitmen swept TPL at 50. Big news here is the loss by Chuck D'Amodio his 1st in 2 years. The Padres outsluged the 42 boys 18-16 and 9-5. The Padres welcomed back Paul Bronski with 3 HR's. The other new team scored 4 in the bottom of the 7th to beat W's 5-4. In the nightcap W's held on for a 5-4 win.


September 9, 2009

An illegal pitch is automatic ball unless the ball is hit. It will then be the batters choice.

Tree is left field at IS 75 is in play(all you can get).

The HR in RF at 75 is over the 4th floor not 3rd floor.

A game will end on mercy automatically once the score difference is 12 runs and the home team has batted 5 times.

August 20, 2006
On the ramp in IS 75 is a single.

The season was underway with a thrilling doubleheader between defending champs Ted Parnese Law and US Coachways. Coachways behind the pitching of Anthony Dondiego and the hitting of Mike O'Halloran, Steve Mavis and Jeff Hawthorne led to the upset 8-4. In the second game, the champs showed their mettle by pounding Coachways pitcher Phil Bracco for 9 runs in less than two innings, Coachways battled back by scoring 7 runs to close the gap 10-9 but went down quietly in the 7th. In the second set. Dinatos got a warm welcome to the league with an 8-4 win over Simple Seafood in the first game. Simple Seafood won the second game 5-2. AT ps 50 the Aces welcomed a new team 42 boys with a DH sweep and the Padres opened up with a sweep of Big Nose Kates. Big Nose added two old faces to their team Pat Sellitti and Rich Calabro. Welcome back boys. We were not able to fill the 12th slot so each team will get a bye. Sorry. I will change the schedule to remove the gaps in times.

On Sat the Robert Kelly Fall Hardtop league opens its 2008 schedule with US Coachways against the Hitmen. The game is played at IS 75 starting time is 9:00am. SILIVE has been full of trash talking and the fun has just begun. Ted Parnese Law was successful in overturning the division method of scheduling. Instead of the top 4 in each division it is now the top 8 teams to make the playoffs. A new rule is in effect, for a player to be eligble to play in the playoffs they must have played in 8 games. Also a ball hit over the third window in IS 75 is a HR this year.
