  4. In order to allow everyone to receive their merchandise in a timely fashion, THE STORES WILL ONLY BE OPEN THROUGH NOVEMBER 3RD.   
  5. These items will NOT be stocked at the ballpark, so this is the ONLY opportunity that you will have to order SOUTH TROY DODGER GEAR for the 2014 Holiday season.  We  CANNOT take individual orders after the online store closes on November 3rd.
  6. Orders will be shipped approximately 4 weeks after the store closes on NOV 3rd.
  7.

GAME 3: SOUTH TROY DODGERS-2  FROZEN ROPES-DALLAS-1:  South Troy stayed alive in the Connie Mack World Series and eliminated national powerhouse Frozen Ropes-Dallas with an exciting win on Tuesday afternoon.  The win not only advances South Troy into the national SUPER SIX, but also has an element of big brother looking out for little brother, as the victory avenges a loss that the 15U Dodgers endured against the same Frozen Ropes-Dallas program in the Championship Game of the Ken Griffey, Jr. World Series last week.  In today’s elimination game victory, South Troy struck first, when Alex Koshkarian singled home Sean Egan in the 2nd inning. In the bottom of the 2nd, Frozen Ropes loaded the bases with one out against South Troy starter Tyler Childrose, but Childrose struck out the next two Texas hitters to get out of the jam.  In the 4th, Frozen Ropes threatened again.  After Frozen Ropes pushed across the tying run, Jared Marquissee stepped on the hill for South Troy and induced a big inning ending double-play with the bases loaded.  The scored stayed tied at 1-1 until the 7th when Darrian Blanks led of the Dodger half of the inning with a walk.  On a hit and run, the terrifyingly quick Blanks was able to race to third on a ground-out by Kevin Smith to the right side.  Josh Quesada then laid down a perfect suicide squeeze allowing  Blanks to score.  Brian Stanczuk pitched a strong final two innings for the win.  The Dodgers now await their next opponent on Wednesday.

GAME 2: SOUTH TROY DODGERS-5  DETROIT METRO STARS-1:  South Troy got their first win of the World Series Tournament on Sunday with a  5 to 1 decision over the Detroit Metro Stars.  South Troy struck first in the 3rd inning, with Kevin Smith scoring on a mis-played long fly to center by Justin Yurchak.  Detroit tied the game immediately, on a single to center.  Nick Cheseri (6 1/3, 1 Run, 5 K’s, 2 Hits) started for South Troy and pitched well.  In the bottom of the 4th, South Troy’s Sean Egan made a fine catch on an errant throw, and then a heads up play to fire the ball to the plate as the runner on 2nd was trying to score.  Danny Maynard dug the ball out of the dirt and applied the tag, keeping the game tied.  The game stayed tied until the 6th, when South Troy put two runners on base via error, and Kevin Smith tripled them home with a deep fly to right field.  Smith then scored on a squeeze bunt by Josh Quesada to make the score 5 to 1.  In the 7th, Brian Stanczuk came in to get the final 2 outs for the save.  South Troy continues play on Tuesday at 2:00 ET.

GAME 1: DBATS-Leach-10  South Troy Dodgers-2:  The South Troy Elite 18U team opened their play in the 50th Connie Mack World Series in Farmington New Mexico on Saturday against the DBAT Leach (TX).  In the first inning, DBAT was able to push two runs across on 3 softly hit singles.  South Troy’s starter Marcus Failing was able to quiet the DBATs for a few innings, allowing the Dodgers to climb back into the game.  In the 2nd, after walks by Ryan Henchey and Josh Quesada, Alex Koshkarian hit a Sac Fly to pull to within 1 run.  Later in the inning, Kevin Smith (single, double, walk) tied the game with a 2 out hit.  In the 3rd, Justin Yurchak and Danny Maynard opened the inning with singles.  Henchey drove in the go ahead run with a ground out, giving South Troy a 3 to 2 lead.  In the 4th, South Troy was unable to find the strike zone allowing the DBATS to push across six more runs.  When Texas-based power  added another 2 in the 5th to reach the final 10-2 margin.
