Game of the Week

Sugar Hill will play the Leland Legends on field 3 at 12:00 pm. The Royals will be umpiring this game.

These two teams are meeting for the last time in the season. Leland sits in 2nd place with a 10 – 6 – 2 record, giving them a total of 32 points. Sugar Hill sits in 3rd place with a record of 10 – 6 – 1, giving them a total of 31 points. These two teams have split the series this season. Sugar Hill won game one by the score of 5 – 1. Leland got revenge in the second meeting by beating them 9 – 2. This game plays a big role in the standings for both teams. Whoever loses this game can easily drop to 4th or 5th place by the end of the week.

Father`s Day Weekend

NYESL hopes that all fathers and soon for be fathers had a great Father`s Day. All Star Weekend was a success. The fundrasier dance on Saturday was a success. We still need more support from the community but we glad to get things back on the right track. After the first set of games were played, it was time for the all star game. Team Calderon defeated Team Sanchez in an intense match-up. The over 30 years old players defeated the under 30 years old players with an amazing come from behind win. The kids game was a huge success. Big shout out to Angel Quinonez Sr., as he was inducted into the Hall of Fame by the NYESL and his son, Angel Quinonez Jr. The NYESL also wants to thank those who handled the grills  and for those who participated in the free face paintings on Sunday.

2017 Annual Stickball Fundraiser Dance

What’s up Stickball family.
This year has so far been a very successful year for our league in many ways.
– The Memorial Day Tournament was a success.
– The vibe on the Blvd has changed dramatically for the better
– The family spirit we all wished for has come back
– We have 9 strong teams that play as competitive as ever
– Our younger generation (-30) is strong enough to take over and compete against the +30. We’ll know the answer to that question on Sunday June 18th, 2017…
– The technologically savvy generation has infused the league with the boost needed to reach the next set of milestones
With all this success and potential for greatness there’s something that’s needed – funds! This year the league has taken the bold step to once again throw the annual fund raiser to help you, me, and all Stickball players on Stickball Blvd raise the necessary funds to do the following:
– Support the Steve Mercado Foundation
– Establish The Youth Stickball League
– A reduction in the annual league fee
– Provide funds for more technology i.e. video cameras and associated equipment to stream live games
– A revamp of the website providing better stats colletion and timely updates
– The list can go on and on and we welcome new ideas…
But, in order for this to be possible…
We need the help of EVERY Stickball Player on Stickball Blvd. The word on the street was that we should do another fund raiser to bring that old school feeling back, so here it is my people… The annual fund raiser this Saturday will include:
– A beautiful hall normally used for weddings and sweet sixteen events
– Open bar all night
– Buffet style dinner
– Free parking
– 3 Live bands – Tony Vega, Tipica 73 and Frankie Morales
– Raffles and prizes
– Your support to the game is greatly needed
– And most importantly – the company of your Stickball family

Support our league. Support the Stickball youth. Support our game. Support our initiatives to make this game as great as we can possibly make it!
To be honest…at the moment this is not the case and we are hoping that all of you can find it within yourselves to come and help us, help you by supporting our fund raiser.
In the end, it will all go back to the Blvd and this beautiful game we all love. Hope to see you there…

Game of the Week

The Royals will play the Emperors at 9:00 am on field 1. The Diamondbacks will be umpiring.

Both the Royals and Emperors are coming off surprising weekends. Last week the 1st place Royals tied to the Diamondbacks and they fell short to the Leland Legends, which led to their drop to 2nd place in the standings. The Emperors cruised through Sugar Hill but tied to the Saints last week. This game can play a big role in both team’s playoff picture as they battle for second and third place. The last time these two teams met, the Royals walked away with a 4 – 1 victory. The Emperors will be looking to get some revenge on the damaged Royals.

The Royals will possibly be missing their young lead-off batter, Cheyenne. They missed him big time last week but they are hoping that they will be able to fill in his spot. The Royals will have their hands full when they face off against the Emperors on field 1. Field 1 is an open field that many lefties struggle on. The Royals are a heavy lefty hitting team, so this will be a challenge for them as well.

The Emperors are not happy with their tie to the Saints last week so they will be taking a lot of frustration out on the handicap Royals. The Emperors have the advantage of playing on an open field as well as facing an injured team. Let’s see if the Emperors can sneak their way into 2nd place in the standings after this week.
