Somen, Bresnahan, and Golden all won their singles matches. Somen actually came all the way back from a 5-0 deficit to grab a 9-7 victory over his Bow counterpart.

Pelham Baseball Gets Ready to Play
submitted by Lou Longo, Vice President, Pelham Baseball
Muldoon Park will be ready yet again to play baseball starting on May 1, as close to 500 kids will be throwing on their uniforms, grabbing their equipment, and swinging for the fences. This year, Pelham Baseball has partnered with Positive Coaching Alliance (www.positivecoach.org; PCA) to help teach the benefits of youth sports and institute their Double Goal Coaching philosophy at the Minor and Major league divisions. Opening Day will be both a somber and special day, as for the first time in over 20 years, Bob Blinn will not be part of the festivities in person, but certainly will be with us in spirit as the Major League baseball field will be named in his honor. Bob passed away late last year after a courageous battle with cancer, but has left his mark in both the baseball and softball programs. Join us this day to celebrate all that Bob did for so many children in Pelham through the years. Opening Day festivities will begin promptly at 9 a.m. on the Babe Ruth field at the main entrance to Muldoon Park. At this time, all teams will be announced in all the divisions, and for many kids, it will be their first time in donning a shirt and cap, as well as running around a baseball diamond. Our T-Ball and Farm divisions will continue to focus on the fundamentals of baseball, with kids learning how to properly hit, field, and throw a baseball, combined with learning the rules of the game. Last year, the Minors division incorporated an end-of-year playoff format that gives all the teams a chance at the league title, as well as prepares them for the next level of Major league ball. In Majors, six teams will battle for a chance to be called the 2010 league champion in what we feel is a very balanced division
of players. Pelham baseball cannot be successful without the effort of so many volunteers, from coaches and Board members on and off the field to snack shack volunteers and sponsors, combined with parents and friends who bring and pick up kids throughout May and June. Join us on May 1 at 9 a.m. as we kick off the 2010 season. Then, at 10:15 a.m., join us at the Robert (Bob) C. Blinn Memorial unveiling ceremony, which will take place at the start of the first Major League game on the newly designated Robert C. Blinn Memorial Field. Bob’s grandson, Logan Rickards, will throw out the first ball.
In addition to Major League games, there will also be Farm and Minor League games starting at approximately 10:30 a.m. See you at the fields!
