Vernon Orioles Earn 6th Straight Championship

By GTHBL, 08/13/18, 9:30AM EDT


The O's Dynasty Continues.

Jack Ceppetelli and his Vernon Orioles have done it again for the 6th consecutive year as a championship team in the Twilight League.  At Trinity College on Sunday, August 12th, Vernon handled Rainbow Graphics in the final championship round with two wins: 3-1 and 7-1.  Strong pitching by Seth Sypniak and Matt Purnell overmatched the opposition while a barrage of hits came from the Dan Trubia and Tony Trubia.  This year's GHTBL Playoff Tournament win was the Orioles 4th postseason win in a row but their 6th straight year with at least a Season Title.  Solid defense also contributed to the O's success in the tournament as well as throughout the 2018 season. 

Congratulations to the Vernon Orioles on their superior ball playing and their long run of success!

Many thanks go to our friends at Trinity College for hosting the league, Dan Saccu, our PA Announcer, and to Bill Holowaty (President), Andy Baylock (Vice President), Tom Abbruzzese (People's United Bank Manager), and Chris Kehoe (Treasurer) for organizing and facilitating the tournament for the league.
