In the first "game" of the summer season , in a exercise meant to tighten up for tournament play , the CUBS instead wiped the dust off the equiptment and went through a can of WD-40 to find
some promising performances from Leo Soler in Right field ,Ben Fitz going 3-3 at the plate, Jesus Delgado behind the plate
and Tony Damiano oiling up the rotator cuff to come in and strike out the sides in the final inning
The middle infielders, Pedro Lopez, Gabe Morales and Joe Rivera , rotated positions each inning showcasing
their versatility,for what proves to be a challenging Memorial Day tournament coming up. Despite attrition
, the young CUBS show a promising future . Freshman Demitri Zaffra and Franco
prepped on the mound with good efforts

Christmas came early this year as the CUBS gifted
the Collier Tigers a victory . Two CUB runs were
called out as CUBS runners failed to slide at home ,
for not avoiding minor contact , causing the umpire to rule them out . The Cubs tied the game with one
run in the top of eight and ninth , then went on to lose in the bottom of the ninth 5-4 , despite a
good effort from Starter Connor Rooney and mid inning relief from Joe Dileo . Reliever Logan Maxwell finished in position
to get the win from the rally but got the loss on a smash double to right and a
RBI single to end the game on this somewhat tricky
windy day for the outfielders

game that went one more to determine a winner.
The home team won in the last raps
Naples Sharks 1
Collier County Cubs 3 F/7
Head Coach Joe Rivera couldn't be there today ,
but the Cubs were well prepared by him this
week as the players showed what may have been
there best defensive effort to date.
Connor Rooney pitched 5 and a third innings of shut out ball as the Cubs protected a 1-0 lead in the top of the
6th. Top plays were 6-4-3 double play in the first , an unassisted DP by 1st baseman Chris Howard
in the second, and a 2-4 backup by Brian Alonso
of an overthrown throw to first in the fifth inning.
Rooney walked the Lead off man in the sixth , and then retired the next batter on a roller to the right of the mound
.but the lead runner reached third .
With the tieing runner 90 feet away and one out ,
Joe Dileo came in to pitch in relief . In a bit of
contreversial strategy , the Cubs intentionally walked
the next batter to set up a potential double play .
but failed to protect against the steal on the very next play. The Cubs intentionally walked the based loaded to
mandate a force at any base .
All strategy was lost as the next batter at the bottom of the order walked to score the tie run.
The Cubs defense showed up again to save the moment as a 2-5 pick off surprised the runner at third
and the next man struck out to end the inning.
Joey Rivera hit a long drive double to right center to drive in two runners to take the lead for good in the bottom
of the inning . Second game starter Logan Maxwell came in to finish in the 7th and almost did it on one pitch
, with one out and a man at first and second , a ground ball up the middle was fielded by the short stop .
Tony Damiano attempted to bare hand tag the runner going to second but he avoided the tag by running out of the
base path , but the SS fired to the plate to get the runner out at home. Maxwell struck out the next batter to end the
game . Dirtiest uniform went to Tony Damiano , who layed out for a few with 8 put outs out of 27 batters ,
and 4 stolen bases.
Naples Sharks 5
Logan Maxwell started the second game after pitching 1/3 inning
relief in the first game and pitched 3 scoreless innings, leaving the game with a 4-0 lead ,thanks to back to back
doubles by Brian Alonso and
Chris Howard and Consistent hitting by Mauro Real
all day. The Cubs added two more runs as Tony Damiano lead off with a single in the 5th
making it 3 for six on the day and Mauro Real
Blasted a shot down the line in left field to drive the runner home . It was Mauro's first HR over the fences .
Every body got a chance to play as the Cubs
held on 6-5 to sweep.
9/6 SUNDAY NAPLES SHARKS 10
The Cubs batted all thirteen hopefuls in their lineup
to see what's what . A lot of runners were left on base and hopefully a lot of rust left on the field in the first
Cub game in 3 months . The game was highlighted by a 1 -1 affair for the first 3 innings as Sharks starter Drew
Freedman showed his stuff vs Cubs starter Logan Maxwell. Then the parade of pitchers began as 4 pitchers
on the mound in the remaining 6 innings.
Let the real season begin.....

Mustangs ? 12
The Mustangs and the Cubs
took the field for a scheduled nine inning
game (shortened from a doubleheader due to injuries,etc)
In the rubber game of the
series this year, it all came down to who showed up . It should have been a competitive battle based on the last few meetings, which were won by the rallying Cubs 13-10 and 10-7 in extra innings , and
Mustang wins of 9-2 and 11-1 .
Unfortunately , the MUSTANGS?
pitcher , #
(INSERT NUMBER HERE )
held the CUBS to one run
in the first five innings.
Tony Damiano went 3 for
3 with a line drive single down the 3rd base line and beat out two
infield hits and was singled home by Mauro Real for the solo CUB run . FRANCO REAL a 13 yo , made his pitching debut against
the Mustangs in the 6th inning and added
a base hit for the day.

APRIL 18, 2009
The Cubs Traveled to face
In yet another episode
of baseball drama , the scheduled
Umpires did not show up
, and two spectators with Thunder
T shirts donned the blue
and the game commenced after a slight delay.
In a perfect example of
underlying consequences for every decision ,
instead of packing up and
going home , the Cubs stayed to play.
What followed was a series
of questionable foul/fair
Strike/ball and safe/out calls that
remarkably all favored
the home team.
The Cubs remained emotionally constrained through out the first
Game which ended in a 7-3
Loss. On a high note , The Cubs completed a 5-2-3-2 TRIPLE PLAY with bases loaded .
In the second game ,
In the middle of a rally,
the Cubs bench was asked
to stay silent when the
Thunder pitcher was set to throw .
The Cubs came from behind
with a pinch hit single by Leo Soler, a perfect would-be sac bunt by pinch hitter David Ervin that turned into a base
hit and a Single by Tony Damiano to drive in the crucial run and force another inning tied at
5-5 . In a game that was now officially over the
time limit , both teams agreed to play one more inning .
The Thunder scored 2 in the top of the 7th and in the Cubs half of the inning with men on 1st and 2nd and no outs , a very questionable called third strike led to
protests by the spectators which prompted the home plate umpire
to call the game with only one out in the inning.
(score goes back to
last complete inning)
The moral of the story
…….Little League is not a place,
it is a state of mind that
covers every exit off I-75
and follows you no matter
where you go … and in the end you will have stories and conversations and
commiserate with those that struggled through a similar fate , with a different
score but the same result…..everyone leaving the field with the same opinion…
TO WIN !

It was a 3 way at Fleishmann Park in Naples
with CUBS challenging the Yarddogs and the Mustangs. It was also a day of choices for the
coaches ,as some players chose to pursue other activities this week and today, leaving the Cubs
shorthanded . In the first game against the Yarddogs
Kris Anderson got his first start and lasted 4 inniings
giving up 4 runs and and left with the Cubs down by 2. In a day in which the bench stepped up , Leo Solar
led off with a double and was driven in by a Sac
and consecutive hits by the top of the order as the Cubs went on to win 5-4 with help from the Cubs
Naples Mustangs 10
In the second game against the Mustangs , Tony Damiano led off the game by driving a 3-2 fastball
over the left center fence in his first lifetime outside the park homerun. The Cubs nursed
a 1-0 led thru 3 innings with Connor Rooney on the mound , but a single turned into a nightmare rolling to the fence
clearing the bases and scoring the batter . 2 more runs scored as the inning ended and the Cubs were
down 6-1. The CUBS came back with 4 runs in the bottom of the inning on 2 walks ,3 hits and
an error. The Mustangs were leading 8-5 but the Cubs
came back with 5 in the 4th and 3 in the 5th to earn
a 13-10 win. Evan Lee stepped up in left field with 2
nice catches on long fly balls on this windy day.

Mustangs 7 F/ 9
The Cubs had a 6-3 lead going into the 6th inning
but the Mustangs rallied to tie . The Cubs scored in the top of the 7th to go ahead, but the Mustangs scored to force
extra innings . The Cubs had to dig deeper into their pitching staff using their next starter Connor
Rooney for extra innings and won the game with a 3 run top of the 9th inning capped by a 5 for 6 hitting
performance by Tony Damiano to drive in 2 runs and 3 defensive put outs by the shortstop in the
bottom of the ninth. Of note , earlier in the game , he sustained a spike just below the knee while tagging out
Dillon Woods of the Mustangs . Thats gonna hurt in the morning.
Fla Gulf Coast Eagles 3
The CUBS shut out the Eagles thru 5 innings in a 1-0
event . Connor Rooney pitched at the top of his game
with the help of a Cubs defense that refused to let runners score including a SS to 3rd base tagout
to end the 3rd inning. According to tournament rules Pitchers could only go a max of 7 innings in one day
and Rooney had to leave after 4 and one third innings on a day in which it appeared he could have gone forever.
The Cubs could not hold the shutout in the top of the 7th , where the Eagles managed
2 walks , a rope to the outfield and a few infield hits
to score 3 runs. The Eagles went on to the Championship game to beat the Miami Makos for a 7-3 victory

File this day under things you find out while doing other things . The Cubs showed up to play the Mustangs , a team they
had scrimmaged earlier in the year. Instead the Clydesdales showed up , with big bats that could not be stopped . You
can't say the Cubs played bad , they had some great plays throwing out the runner at 2nd stealing on many occasions ,
and pick offs at 1st and second , even an excellent relay and tag out at the plate . But the Mustangs kept hitting everything
DEEP and HARD.
In a Bizarre call , an overthrown ball hit the Mustangs Coach's bucket but stayed in play . The Ump at first ruled
that because the ball touched equiptment, the play is dead and the Mustangs runner was awarded home , to the Cubs detriment.
The ump informed their was no rule to keep the equiptment off the field .

Game 3 SUNDAY NOV 9 , 2008
Temple Terrace Stars 7
Collier County Cubs 3 F/ 6
In what was the last scheduled game for the Cubs ,
some players woke up to a 5 am alarm to
check out of the hotel , drive and be at their game in time to warm up for the 8 am first pitch.
Conner Rooney pitched well in the first inning
before the well prepared batters caught on
and the Cubs were behind 6-0 .
Iron man Logan Maxwell came in to steady
the ship. The momentum was shifting as the school bell rang in their body clocks at about the 5th inning
The Cubs mustered a run , but fell short with a bigger rally when some close calls went against
the Cubs . An infielder dropped the ball on a tag , but
BLUE ruled the fielder had the ball long enough, which proved to be first of many questionable Lady
umpire calls. The would-be rally ended when a Cubs runner was thrown out on an attempted steal .
In a bizzare 6th inning , CUBS runners were on the bases and a line drive fell in front of the
STARS fielder by about 2 feet before it skipped into his glove . The same umpire ruled it a catch and a double
play as the ball was thrown to second for the tag.
The defense left the field and were in the dugout
as Cubs coaches were asking the HOME plate umpire
to step in . After a meeting of the UMPS , the players
took the field again as the ball was ruled as hitting the ground , and not a catch , as was obvious to all . The
rally resumed as catcher Chris Grupp reached on a base hit . A courtesy runner was asked for , but denied by the umps. According
to AAU website and tournaments rules printed on their website and displayed at the gate , "a courtesy runner may be used for
each teams catcher and pitcher and will not be counted as a substitute player, but cannot be a starter for the game
or currently in the game" .
FURTHER investigation says they also mean a player who has entered the game and left the game can't be
a courtesy runner either ( even though he is not currently in the game as the rule says)
The relevence was that on the next play
a Cubs player struck out but it was drop third strike
and he reached first safely ( all runners advance)
However , because no faster courtesy runner was allowed , first base was occupied so the runner
who struck out and reached first was out automatically
In any event , the Cubs rally eventually ended
after discussion , at 10:03 am and the umpires
called the game after 6 innings because of the 2 hour
rule. (had the inning ended at 9:59 am another
inning would have been played ......well let's say
should have been played )

and over again in my life. And that's precisely why I succeed."
~ Michael Jordan
