Yesterday, the Peglegs closed out the regular season with a 5-0 loss to Newtown HS. Jared Asch and Matt Deutsch held Newtown to only 3 hits but our defense didn’t hold up. We committed 4 errors which led to 5 unearned runs. The Peglegs also only managed 3 hits with a double from Malcolm Hubbell and singles by Luca Bielski and Cooper Nissenbaum.
We put the bat on the ball this time but only to hit right at their defense.
The Peglegs finish 7-9 in the regular season which I know was disappointing for the coaches and the team. The bright side is that we are headed to the playoffs again and anything can happen there. Remember, everyone’s record is 0-0 come Wednesday.
I want to thank the seniors for all there hard work over the years, you guys are are the hardest working team in all of Stuy and probably the league. Coach Hahn and I are so honored to have coached you over the years. Now let’s make some noise on Wednesday!!
Seeding comes out sometime on Sunday, let’s hope we get a good spot!!
