Toms River East Little League Ready To Be Champions Again

in Toms River News

Neither rain nor 46-degree temperatures prevented the Toms River East Little League from celebrating its storied history with an Opening Day parade and festivities.

“The rain didn’t bother us,” league president Tommy Noone said prior to the event. “In the last 20 years, it has rained 18 times. We’re used to it. It would not be an opening without rain.”

Headlining the parade were the league’s championship 50/70 13U and 60/90 14U All-Star teams of last summer. Hundreds of members, led by Todd Frazier, who powered the Toms River East American Little League All-Star team to the 1998 Little League World Series title, marched. Hidden under umbrellas and attired in rain gear, hundreds of fans lined Windsor Avenue, the league’s location, enjoying their idols.

in Toms River News

Sixty miles from Citizens Bank Park, the night after the Astros combined for a no-hitter in Game 4 of the World Series, two-time MLB All-Star Todd Frazier took the mound himself at The RWJBarnabas Health Field of Dreams.

Unfortunately for Frazier, pitching in his namesake Special Needs Baseball League, any chance he had at a no-hit bid was squashed after the first batter. He didn’t mind, though.

“I got knocked around twice. They were seeing the ball so well on me,” Frazier said. “Underhand or overhand, these balls were being crushed.”

in Toms River News

CLEVELAND — The Yankees lost their hottest reliever while taking two of three games during the Fourth of July weekend in Cleveland. No, not closer Clay Holmes. The owner of the game’s best sinker is fine and picked up two more saves in his last two outings after finally giving up a couple runs following a 2½-month scoreless streak.

Rookie Ron Marinaccio has been even more effective over the past five months. The Toms River, N.J., product retired the only three batters he faced in Saturday’s 13-4 win in Game 1 of a doubleheader. He has retired 46 of 47 batters over his last 15 outings — all scoreless.
