It is with a sad face but very happy for 2 of our players from 2016 who have signed on with the NECBL and NYCBL collegiate baseball leagues for 2017. We wish nothing but the best to Matt Kerin (UMASS Lowell) and Kevin Higgins (Suffolk University) Once a Beacon - Always a Beacon.
Welcome to another summer of baseball. McKay Club has continued to get younger and more dedicated players with the hopes that experience will help all of our players if they're still involved in NCAA baseball at the collegiate level mixed in with some veterans. Wishing all the success to all of our players. A big thank you once again to our franchise owner Uncle Buck - Mr. President - Dave McKay
It seemed like a bad night right from the beginning.
FLAT! That is the word for it. Jon Pellettier was on the mound for his first YBL game. The 19 year old from Quincy was pumped and pitched very well thru 4.1 innings. He did not allow a hit until the bottom of the 4th. But, that was his undoing. After that hit - 2 runs would score after some funky play afield. Jon hung on and shut the door and lasted into the 5th -- but was removed with one out and one on in that stanza.
The flood gates opened when Ryan Thomas came to the mound. Thomas was rusty at best. He was not helped by sloppy play either. 5 more runs came across and Cambridge seemed to be on its way to a sure win.
But this 2008 McKay Club refused to quit. They scored a single run in the 6th and were able to plate 3 more in the 7th. That was not enough. The grave was too deep. The first loss of '08 was a tough one to swallow.
Many mental mistakes. Batters out of sink and some base running errors took us out of "innings".
So, its forget about this one and move on to Friday. Good job Big Baby! Nice work -- 7 K's and no earned runs in your first YBL start! Too bad -- we let ya down!!
