Randolph NJ---The Randolph Stallions baseball team won the USABL World Series, 11u, 50/70 with a 4-3 win over the Jackson Muckdogs at Whitehouse Station.  The season started with over 120 teams and the Stallions played three games at the World Series to win the title.

Game one was a 16-7 victory over the Marlboro Mustangs, who were in the Little League State finals as a 10u team last year.  Eric Recchia got the win as the starting pitcher for the Stallions, while brother Paul Recchia went 2-for 4 and belted a two run homerun in the game's second at bat to set the tone.  Matia Clement and Joe Reed also hit HR's to help put the game away early.

Game two was a comeback victory over the Jackson Muckdogs with Dylan Haun throwing four strong innings to keep the score close and earn the win.  Randolph entered the 5th inning down 3-1, and a loss would mean elimination.  Paul Recchia started the 5th with a leadoff homerun to cut the lead to one.  A parade of hits by Reed, Recchia, Clement and Nick Errico gave the Stallions a one run lead.  Jason Tamres had an RBI to push the lead to 5-3, and the game was put away by a two-run homer from Jack Bibbo.  Two strong innings of shutout relief by Joe Reed gave the Stallions a 7-3 victory.

Game three was a rematch against the Jackson team.  Joe Reed got the start going 4 strong innings, followed by Paul Recchia who got the win throwing the final 2 innings and giving up no runs.

Eric Recchia homered in the 1st inning to give the Stallions a 2-1 lead.  With the score tied 3-3 in the bottom of the 5th, Jack Bibbo hit a two out ground-rule double over the Center Field fence.  Jake Hart singled, and was followed by an Andrew Novak single past shortstop to score Bibbo and give Randolph a 4-3 advantage. 

In the top of the 6th, with 2 outs and a runner on third, Recchia faced the #3 hitter for Jackson, who was 4-for-7 with a HR in the two game series so far.  On a 1-1 pitch and the outfield playing deep at the fence, the Muckdog batter hit a blooper over second base that appeared to be trouble.  Reed raced in from center field, but was too deep to make a play.  However, second baseman Tamres came out into shallow center to snag the ball out of the air for the final out, securing the 4-3 lead and the World Series win for Randolph.

Coach Matt Bibbo said about his team “It was an incredible effort by the kids and a great moment for Randolph baseball.”  Bibbo added “Many other teams batted nine kids and subbed kids in, but we hit 12 boys all year, played everyone, and won with sportsmanship.  To be the last team standing out of 120 is an amazing run.”
