Two players took center stage for the Depot Furniture PeeWee team, as Jason Edelman and Brendon Aretz played the game at its highest and finest level.

Jason played third base and made several outstanding plays. He also had one of the longest drives of the season, hitting the ball deep into the outfield. Brendon played second base and made two magnificent plays. He also got base hits both times at the plate.

Both of these players received game balls for their efforts. Jason and Brendan look like future stars in the Bayside Little League.

On Saturday the Outback Steakhouse team came out energized and ready to play, welcoming back Max Ganik and Ari Papagianis, who came off the disabled list. Both contributed with their powerful bats. Max played a smooth first base and Ari scooped up everything he could reach at second base.

Nicholas Voyniseas received the game ball after reaching base every time he came to the plate. His timely hitting ensured that the team remained competitive throughout the game.

Nicholas chased down several hits that would have certainly gone for extra bases. This game seemed to be the team’s best effort yet.
