Chatham's 10U baseball team won the New Providence Green League championship over Westfield by a score of 8-4 on Thursday July 29. Although seeded eighth in the playoffs, Chatham defeated the first seed Watchung and the fourth seed Florham Park to advance to the championship game against second seeded Westfield.

Chatham's bats really came alive in the fourth inning when Chloe Blanc hit a triple over the left fielder's head with the bases loaded. Ben Herbert then drove her in with a single into center field for the fourth run of the inning. Tim Crandall also had two singles in the game with a RBI and Ryan Farese a double. Keith Chatinover and George Icart both singled and each got a RBI to help in the win.

Then, the Cougars pitching dominated with performances from Jack Ryan Mulligan who threw for three innings and Matt Stamford who closed the game out.

Defensively, Chatham was unmatched by Westfield. David Niland threw a runner out from right field, Andrew Des Mararis caught a foul fly ball while catching, Michael Depinto made strong throws from center field to prevent runs, and Bobby Briganti's defense at 3rd base stopped Westfield from scoring.

The Champs were led by managers Jim Farese and Bob Crandall and assistant coaches Jonathan Chatinover, Paul Depinto, Andy Stamford, Rob DesMarais, Chris Blanc and Dan Mulligan.

After the game, the team celebrated by pouring a cooler of Gatorade on manager Jim Farese. Jim praised his team, "It's great group of kids who worked hard and kept pushing themselves to get better each week. It was an exciting game and win for the team."

His name was Mike Czech and he was teaching the kids how to play a game on the open court.   I introduced myself to help assist him as a fellow ...
