In Frontier League Baseball…the New York Boulders began a three-game series in Pomona against the Ottawa Titans on Monday. The Boulders won on Monday, 2-1, with rain shortening the game to eight innings. After about a 1½ hour rain delay at the start of Tuesday’s game, the Boulders and Titans were both scoreless when the Boulders came up in the bottom of the third looking to break the tie…
And that was Andrew Van Cura and Seth Cantor with the call on the Boulders Broadcast Network. The Boulders would go on to lose the game, 10-3. They play again tonight at 7pm. If you can’t get to the game, you can hear all the action right here on WRCR.
Three Boulders have been selected to be starters in the 2023 Frontier League All-Star Game. Infielder Matt McDermott, outfielder Patrick Kivlehan, and infielder Tucker Nathans will represent the East Division on Wednesday, July 12th at Ozinga Field in Crestwood, Illinois. The All-Star festivities will also include a Skills Competition featuring bunting, throwing, and hitting, as well as a Home Run Derby.
In hockey news…Pearl River native Drew Fortescue was picked 90th by the Rangers last week in the NHL draft. The 18 year-old Don Bosco defenseman grew up a fan of the Islanders, but told the New York Post his cousins are all Rangers fans, so they’re very happy.
