Tosoni Comes to the Rescue Again
Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Chestnut Hill, Mass. --
Freshman southpaw Matt Tosoni (Whitby, Ontario) has made a habit of
coming through for the St. John's baseball team in the last week.
On Monday, ninth-ranked Notre Dame topped St. John's in the first game of
a doubleheader, but the Canadian threw 6.1 innings in the nightcap to lead
the Red Storm to a 2-1 win over the Irish.
Five days later, Tosoni did it again. The Red Storm dropped the opening
game of a doubleheader to Boston College, 4-2, but the lefty threw five
innings as the visitors came back for a 7-1 win, splitting the BIG EAST
doubleheader at Eddie Pellegrini Field.
St. John's is now 19-13 overall, and 8-4 in the BIG EAST, while the Eagles
are now 14-18 overall and 5-4 in the league.
Tosoni gave up a leadoff home run to Ryan Morgan in the first, and retired
the next seven batters before getting into trouble in the third. With one out,
Marco Albano singled and Morgan doubled to put runners on second and
third, but Tosoni threw a pair of ground ball outs to get out of the inning.
After having the side retired in order in the first three innings, the Red Storm
bats came alive in the fourth, down 1-0. Mike Rozema (Fair Lawn, N.J.) and
P.J. Antoniato (Levittown, N.Y.) each reached base on singles, but were
forced out at third when Jim Martin (Norwood, Mass.) and Blake
Hershelman (Georgetown, Del.) reached on fielder's choices. With two out,
junior Joe Burke (Brooklyn, N.Y.) singled through the right side to score the
first run, and sophomore Eddie Schultz (Flemington, N.J.) reached on an
error, allowing the go-ahead run to score.
That was all Tosoni would need. The freshman, who picked up his second
win of the season on Monday, was strong once again. He went five innings,
gave up one run on five hits, with two walks and two strikeouts and had 10
ground ball outs.
He was relieved in the sixth by senior Geno Orsogna (Norfolk, Mass.), who
entered with runners on first and second and none out. He struck out
Garrett Greer and then picked Drew Locke off at second before retiring the
final batter. After issuing a leadoff walk in the seventh, Antoniato made a
great play at second to turn an inning-ending double play.

Dodgers announce more signings!
The Oshawa Dodgers are pleased to announce 2 recent signings:
These two signings will sure up the very right side of our infield.

First we have the signing of Ken Calway a 6' 3" power hitting 1st/DH. Ken
played most of his minor baseball in the Whitby Minor Baseball Association
before coming to Oshawa and playing his 2 years of Junior Baseball for
Manager Troy May in the Oshawa Legion (Minor) Baseball Association.
Ken has played the last two years for the Northumberland Whiskey Jacks
Senior team in the Greater Toronto Senior League.
Ken led his team in 2001 with 21 RBI, and was second in the league in RBI.
Ken brings senior baseball experience to the Dodgers and with team mate
Darryl Reid we will be set at 1st/DH for years to come.
An interesting note about Ken is that he was the first ever High School
player to hit a home run at SkyDome.
This was done while playing in the High School finals (Prentice Cup) with
the Henry Street Hawks High School team from Whitby.

The other signing is Gary "Spike" Minacs.
Gary will be our first base coach, Infield coach, and is one of the best
"fungo" hitters ever to coach in Oshawa.
Gary is a retired Elementary School Teacher (35 years). Gary is presently
team travel coordinator for the Oshawa Generals Hockey Club. Gary has
worked with the Oshawa Generals since 1982.
Gary played in the Oshawa Legion (Minor) Baseball Association in the
1950's and 1960's, Winning 2 OBA championships, 3 Leaside League
Championships and is being inducted into the Oshawa Sports Hall Of
Fame this May with his team mates from the 1955-1958 teams he played
on.
Gary coached Peewee, Bantam, Midget and Junior teams in the OLMBA
from 1982-1992.
From 1995-1999 Gary coached in the Greater Toronto Senior League
winning 2 OBA's, a Bronze and a Silver medal at the Senior Canadian
Championships.
An interesting fact about Gary is that he holds the record as the oldest (at
age ??) player to ever play in the Senior Canadian Championships.
Gary will be a very valuable asset with the Oshawa Dodgers this year and
manager Troy May will call on Gary's vast coaching knowledge and
experience this summer and for years to come.
Gary is married to Barb and they have 3 sons Jack, Derek and Brent.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Barb as I know with out a very
supportive wife none of this is possible.
