Alexandria Aces Remember GM, Dennis Feeney

Long-time Alexandria Aces General Manager, Dennis P. Feeney, 59, a resident of Oswego, NY and formerly of Washington D.C., passed away after a courageous fight with pancreatic cancer on Wednesday January 7, 2015, at Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, surrounded by his family.

For Denny, baseball was life. He loved the game and the game loved him. Denny joined the Aces during the 2009 season and he quickly became a fan favorite at Frank Mann Field. At Aces home games, he could always be heard urging fans to support the club and win some money by participating in the ’50-50′ raffle tickets. He would often joke with fans telling them that they can’t let the other team buy the winning raffle ticket.

His love for the game of baseball led him to fulfill the role of general manager for the Aces in 2011.  While assisting Aces owner, Don Dinan, with both on-and-off-the field operations, one of Denny’s favorites responsibilities was managing two weeks of youth summer baseball camps. At these camps, he encouraged all the kids to have a great attitude in life and to ‘keep swinging for the fences’. Denny always worked to make sure that children had great experiences at the ballpark.  His own positive attitude and humor inspired us all.

Denny would always participate in the superstitious activities that Head Coach David DeSilva and former broadcaster Lukas Favale believed in. Whether it was eating at Chipotle for lunch every day, getting smoothies, slurpees or milkshakes, Denny was always involved.

The Alexandria Aces will greatly miss Denny and thank him for all that he did for the organization. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.

Denny’s family has asked in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Purple Hope Foundation, Three Lakeview Drive, Wilton N.Y. 12831.

REDBIRDS THREE-PEAT

Mac Caples named Series Most Outstanding Player

Mac Caples (Virginia Tech) hit a booming two run homerun and a two run single to lead the Baltimore Redbirds to their third consecutive Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League (CRCBL) Title with a decisive 7-0 victory over the Bethesda Big Train on Saturday, August 2, 2014.  Caples, who also saved two runs with a diving catch in the bottom of the first, was named the Most Outstanding Player in the series.

 

The Redbirds and Big Train have now played in the championship series for six consecutive seasons.

 

Matt Pirro (Wake Forest) was the pitching hero for the Redbirds, pitching seven shutout innings.  He allowed only five hits, walked three and struck out seven.  Justin Dunn (Boston College) finished for Baltimore, allowing only one base runner (on a walk) and striking out two.

 

The Redbirds scored the only run they would need in the 4th inning on singles by Garrett Hudson (Virginia Tech) and Nick Cieri (Maryland) and a sacrifice fly by JB Woodman (Ole Miss). The Redbirds made it 2-0 in the top of the 5th on a two out double by Lee Lipinski (Rider) and an RBI single by Mike Parsons (Rider). 

 

The Redbirds scored three more to extend their lead to 5-0 in the 6th.  Two singles and a Big Train error led to one run and Caples hit his homerun that knocked out Big Train starter Brandon Rhodes.

 

Baltimore added two insurance runs in the 8th on two out singles by Woodman and Cody Sherlin (Armstrong Atlantic State), a wild pitch and Caples’ 2 RBI single.

 

Congratulations to the Redbirds on winning their third consecutive title.

 

Notes: The Redbirds won 9 consecutive games in July to clinch a playoff berth and a first round bye.  They defeated Rockville 11-2 and Bethesda 7-3 to reach the Championship round.  The Redbirds lost a heartbreaker to Bethesda 2-1 on Friday before Saturday’s victory.
