Welcome to the Point. The Point being College Point.

Graduations have taken place and summer recess is in full swing. Let’s make this a very safe as well as recreational summer and loving. These days cannot be duplicated.

A very Happy Birthday to Marie LoPinto, Lil Moss, Rocco Cardali and me.

Guy Nassiff, Marie LoPinto’s son-in-law has been coaching in the College Point Little League for seven years and knows the president, Jerry Castro, very well. They marched in the Memorial Day Parade together with members of the Little League.

Pepsi Cola defeated Western Beef in the College Point Little League Junior Division Championship, 9-7, in a thrilling game that featured the two teams with the best records in the Junior Pony Division. Pepsi Cola (16-2) held on to defeat Western Beef (13-2-1) by a score of 9-7 at the new College Point fields.

After falling behind early, Pepsi Cola stormed to a 7-1 lead behind the pitcher, Kyle Kadir, and the clutch hitting of Jeff Meran and Danny Ames.

Western Beef stormed back with a bases-loaded double by Chuckie Boudiette to make the score 7-5. Pepsi Cola tacked on two more runs to take a 9-5 lead going into the seventh and final inning. Facing staff ace Mott Logiurato, Western Beef scored two runs, closing the gap to 9-7. Logiurato induced clean-up hitter, Chris Hay, to fly out to seal the victory.

“That was the best gift,” said center fielder, Michael Nassiff, who on his 14th birthday snagged the final out. Congratulations to all!

Ganine Dispensa did a wonderful job at the “Strut Your Stuff” recital.
