  • 12-U Pirates in first place in WBA standings, 8-U team in a close second, one game out

    The payroll-bloated New York Yankees haven't won a post-season game in the past four seasons and are struggling to play .500 ball, the once pitching-rich New York Mets keep having arms fall off in their starting rotation and are struggling in the wild card race with little chance of a trade deadline deal coming to the rescue, but the streaking Port Chester Youth Baseball League 8-U and 12-U Pirates keep rolling along like a youthful boy-filled river of fleshed out talent.

  • Football’s summer version of golf's Mulligan has Rams training for a pre-season do over

    In golfing circles they call it a "Mulligan," not an Irish stew but a do over, a chance to make a shot better. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again until you get it right or at least come closer to getting it right.

    That is what newbie Port Chester Rams High School football coach Paul Santavicca has been doing with a summer vacation that hasn't really been a summer vacation for him and his up-and-coming team.

  • The role coaches play in local athletes’ lives

    Nobody asked me, but...

    That was the way the late great New York Post sportswriter Jimmy Cannon used to start some of his columns that were as much think pieces as they were straight reportage.

  • PCYBL 8-U and 12-U Pirates continue winning in the WBA

    Go figure!

    Despite their season-long turnaround where they went from 1-19 last year to 9-11 and a playoff berth this past season, the Port Chester High School baseball Rams were still basically a good-field, no-hit team. They had a definite power outage when it came to hitting the long ball.

  • A team of MVPs
    Congratulations to the Port Chester Soccer Club B05C team on becoming WYSL 11U Champions. As the team manager for the last four years, I have seen this team go through a few rough years winning very few to no games during past seasons
  • Athletic scholarship words to the wise to P.C. student athletes willing to listen

  • RB/PC 11/12-U Little League girls make it to district championships

  • Looking for a sponsor to help kick off proposed P.C. Athlete of Year award
    It is déjà vu time with action required on this writer's suggestion for an annual award naming the best Port Chester High School student-athlete, that award to be granted by a community organization such as the Kiwanis, Rotary, 40/40 or sports booster clubs at an annual dinner feting the best of the P.C. athletic best.

    Blind Brook High School senior Brandon Hamlet was named to the Westchester-Putnam All-Section baseball team with fellow senior Max Picker earning honorable mention on the All-Star team, an indication of how good the quality of play is in and around Rye Brook. That excellence extends to the way the girls play the game.

  • Unsung P.C. athletic heroes & heroines 'Rexit' with a thanks for memories salute

    It was a farewell to high school: Goodbye to all those senior concerns about teachers, books, SATS, college choices, dates and tests, academic as well as athletic. Graduation has come and gone from Port Chester High School as of last Friday, but the memories of what the scholar-athletes of the Class of 2016 accomplished on the playing fields linger on like the fleshed out notes of an unfinished symphony. 

  • Golden Dozen Lady Ram selections: Best female athletes in Class of 2016

    It is déja vu all over again with another Port Chester High School graduation coming up Friday (June 24), an annual ritual that includes caps and gowns, pomp and circumstance, speakers and more, all leading up to diplomas and an ending to a high school career with a future beckoning after a four-year rite of passage filled with events none of the grads could have anticipated when their journey began.

  • Fundraiser for 12-U Pirates Sunday at Cafe Mirage for off$ite tourney$

    It is a tough act to follow—last year's Port Chester Youth Baseball League Pirates 12-U team went down to Myrtle Beach, S.C., and wound up their Little League careers by winning a prestigious national tournament named after baseball great Cal Ripken Jr. under veteran coach Bobby Thalheimer, a former Rams baseball star. With age 12 the limit to play Little League ball, it was a great way to go out in style.
