Mahopac Routs Arlington B, Falls to Nyack

Julia Walpole and Mahopac beat Arlington B, but fell to Nyack in the Dick Beams Tournament on April 30.

ARLINGTON, N.Y.— Mahopac’s softball team defeated Arlington B 20-1 in its first game of the annual Dick Beams Tournament on Saturday, April 30.

“We are going in the right direction,” Mahopac coach Brian Hunt said. “We need to continue to improve.”

Julia Walpole belted a three-run homer. Outfielder Alissa Copeland knocked in five runs while hitting a triple, a double and a single. Copeland also walked twice.

Third baseman Carly Pease smoked two doubles, pushing home three runners. Juliana DePinho hit an RBI double, and slapped an RBI single. Marissa Burke pelted an RBI double in the rout. Catcher Beth Schum doubled and singled, while driving one run home.

Second baseman Raquel DiVincenzo doubled, singled and walked. Shortstop Kim Astrologo had a base-hit and a double, and walked three times. First baseman Maddy DellaMedaglia scorched a double.

The second round of the tournament was not quite so smooth. The Indian offense was stagnant. They trailed Nyack, 3-0 entering the top of the sixth. It was then that Pease revived Mahopac with a two-run single.

DiVincenzo and Astrologo set the table with a base-hit each to start the inning. Nyack failed again to pad its lead in the bottom of the inning. Copeland made them pay the price by connecting for an RBI double, making extra innings necessary.

The Nyack Indians came out victorious though by the score of 4-3, after a walk-off sacrifice fly in the eighth inning.

Astrologo socked a double in the first inning, but was stranded on base. Schum bonked a base-hit in the sixth. Burke singled and scored a run in addition.

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
