    Today the Peglegs fell to Francis Lewis by the score of 6-2. The lack of situational hitting and defense cost us the game. Malcolm Hubbell and Matthew Deutsch only gave up 2 earned runs in the loss. The only offensive bright spot was Franklin Liou who went 3-3 including his first PSAL homerun.
    The Peglegs are now 5-2 in league play. Tomorrow we will be visiting Cardozo HS in Queens.

    Congratulations to the Peglegs on their 5th win of the season. The Peglegs defeated John Adams HS 3-2 at the parade grounds today. Jared Asch threw a complete game giving up just 4 hits and 1 earned run. The Peglegs did not have much offense either but wore down one to the best pitchers in the league and capitalized on key mistakes made by Adams defense. The key point of the game was Micheal Gillow throwing a runner out at the plate early in the game and smart base running by Max Onderdonk and Khyber Sen. You guys never gave up!!!
    This was a great win!

    Once again the Peglegs came from behind to beat Newtown 6-5 at the Pier. Malcolm Hubbell had a rough start on the mound but got better as the game went on. Matthew Deutsch came in relief and pretty much shut down the opposition’s offense. Michael Gillow had a 2 run homer in the bottom of the first to cut the lead to 1. Patient at bats, great blocking by Jeremy Rubinbehind the dish and Jared Asch flashing some leather at 3rd gave us our 4th win of the young season.
    Another great team win!!!!! Great going guys.

    Stuyvesant PEGLEGS Varsity Clinches Lead In Fifth Inning For Victory Over Newtown HS

    Stuyvesant stole the lead late and defeated Newtown HS 6-5 on Wednesday. The Peglegs were down 5-4 in the bottom of the fifth inning when the tying and go-ahead runs scored. Stuyvesant earned the victory despite allowing Newtown to score three runs in the first inning. Newtown’s big inning was driven by an error on a ball put in play by Batista-espinal and a double by Cesar Garcia.

    Malcolm Hubbell was on the mound for Stuyvesant. He allowed five hits and five runs over four and a third innings, striking out four. Jeremy Rubin, Justin Heinze, Michael Gillow, and Max Onderdonk each collected one hit to lead Stuyvesant.

    Today the Stuyvesant Peglegs beat the Pioneers of Newtown 7-6 in a final inning nail biter in the cold. Jared Asch gave us a stellar performance on the mound throwing 6.1 innings of 3 hit ball. The Peglegs got some very timely hitting and great at bats against a very good pitcher. The last inning is something I’d like to forget but we kept our composure and ended the game with a 6-4-3 double play with the tying run on third. Malcolm Hubbell made a great scoop to cap off the DP. 3-1 in league play now.
    Next game is at Pier 40 against Newtown again. The game will start at 4:15pm.
    Great job boys.

    Stuyvesant Varsity Holds Onto Victory As Newtown HS Almost Erases 6-Run Deficit

    Despite seeing its six-run lead whittled down by the end, Stuyvesant still held off Newtown HS for a 7-6 victory on Monday. Newtown HS scored five runs in the failed comeback on a error, a double by Genesis Nunez, and a single by Cesar Garcia.

    Stuyvesant earned the victory despite allowing Newtown HS to score five runs in the seventh inning. Newtown HS fired up the offense in the first inning. Gonzalez drove in one when he doubled. Stuyvesant pulled away for good with two runs in the fourth inning. In the fourth Batista-espinal’s wild pitch allowed one run to score, and Batista-espinal induced Sam Merrick to hit into a fielder’s choice, but one run scored.

    Stuyvesant tallied three runs in the seventh inning. The Peglegs were led by Simon Carmody, Jeremy Rubin, and Franklin Liou, all knocking in runs in the inning.

    Jared Asch earned the win for Stuyvesant. He lasted six and a third innings, allowing three hits and three runs while striking out seven. Rubin threw two-thirds of an inning in relief out of the bullpen. Rubin recorded the last two outs to earn the save for Stuyvesant.

    Michael Gillow led Stuyvesant with two hits in four at bats. Malcolm Hubbell led Stuyvesant with three stolen bases, as they ran wild on the base paths with six stolen bases.

    Newtown HS tallied six hits on the day. Nunez and Reyes each collected multiple hits for Newtown HS.

    Yesterday the Peglegs dropped their first game of the season to West 50th Street Campus 2-1. The old saying is true “Good pitching stops good hitting.” The Peglegs left 11 men on base and couldn’t get that big hit yesterday. Owen Potter made his pitching debut for Stuy, 2.2 innings 7 strikeouts and 4 walks and 2 earned runs. Matthew Deutsch then came in for relief and kept us in the game throwing 3.1 innings with 1 walk and 1 strike and 0 runs. The Peglegs go into the break 2-1 in the division still in first place.

    I’d like to announce that the Peglegs won their first league game today 5-2 over Bayside HS. The cold day saw Jared Asch throw 6 strong innings and 84 pitches and Jeremy Rubin come in for the save. We got the big hit from Mike Gillow, a 3 run homer and a big insurance hit by Malcolm Hubbell. The defense was solid with no errors and cap by Khyber Sen throwing a runner out at the plate from right field. This was a good solid win. Next up is West 50th Street Campus at Pier 40 Wednesday at 4pm.
    Thank you for all the fans that came out and brave the chilly weather.

  8. Managing Great Expectations

    Oh, what a year can bring

    A year ago today, March 25, 2017, Stuyvesant’s varsity baseball team traveled to Ft. Hamilton High School for its final pre-season scrimmage. It was an unremarkable affair, in which the Tigers prevailed over a lackluster Pegleg squad in the Saturday-morning chill. As the dispirited players gathered their equipment, nothing hinted at the heroics about to unfold.

    Four days later, the team opened its season at home with a bang. Against Newtown, the Peglegs prevailed 9-3, behind strong pitching from Tobias Lange, timely hitting from Jack Archer, and sharp fielding from Max Onderdonk and others. Stuyvesant would not lose another game until April 21, racking up wins against Bayside, Norman Thomas, Newtown (again), Francis Lewis, and the High School for Construction Arts in the process.

    Thus began one of the most remarkable sports seasons in the school’s modern history.

    “Last year’s team was special,” says coach John Carlesi, reflecting on a campaign that saw the Peglegs go 12-5 in New York City’s toughest athletic division. “For the first time ever, Stuyvesant was ranked in the top ten in the city,” he says. “It meant a lot to the team and to the school.” The banner atop the FSB homepage captures one of the season’s signature moments, a 1-0 walk-off triumph over Bryant in the final game of the season.

    As the 2018 campaign opens, Carlesi and Assistant Coach Matt Hahn find themselves invoking the glory of 2017 to motivate a young and relatively inexperienced team, while tempering expectations with a measure of realism.

     “It’s a brand new year,” Carlesi says. “We can’t expect to be that good again.”

    Losing eleven seniors in a single off-season means many new faces in the dugout. “Three-quarters of the infield has never started a varsity league game,” Carlesi observes. “We need a lot of players to step up.”

    Joining last year’s stalwarts—seniors Onderdonk and Michael Gillow, and juniors Jared Asch, Jeremy Rubin, and Malcolm Hubbell—in the probable starting lineup, rotation, and bullpen are seniors Ronin Berzins, Simon Carmody, Perry Wang, Samuel Merrick, and Khyber Sen (who was injured in 2017), juniors Matthew Deutsch and Cooper Nissenbaum, and sophomore Owen Potter.

    Anchoring a deep bench are seniors Sam Merrick, Justin Heinze, and Sam Stamler, juniors Daniel Kim and Henry Carver, and sophomore Franklin Liou.

    “With so many people in new positions,” Carlesi says, “I’m looking for the player who can hit. If you hit, we will find a spot for you on the field.”

    Asked about the team’s relative strengths, Carlesi says, “From what I’ve seen so far, the pitching is very good. I think it’ll hold up in league play.”

    The problem for Stuyvesant, as it is for so many teams at this level, is hitting. “We need that person who can be consistent in getting the big hit,” Carlesi remarks. But to be successful, the entire team will have to contribute. “If we can hit .250 on a consistent basis, we will win most of our games,” he says. “Last year, we hit .268 in league play. That’s very good.”

    Recent pre-season victories over Abraham Lincoln and Berkeley Carroll offer glimmers of hope for the regular season. “We were getting the head of the bat on the ball,” says Carlesi. “We’re not striking out as much. We’re holding our own. Hopefully, that’s a good sign of what the season will bring.”

    But the coach is well aware that pre-season play offers few portents of the year to come.

    That, after all, was the lesson of the magical season of ’17.

  9. Stuy Alumni in the News: Nathan Chandler

    I’d like to congratulate Nathan Chandler, class of 2016, on his first college win yesterday for Kenyon College. Nathan battled back from TJ surgery during his senior year at Stuy and worked hard to get back to top form. We are very proud of him.
