On Wednesday, July 11, 2012, the Meridian softball team took the field on Redneck Road in Moonachie to play their friendly Teterboro-based rival, FlightSafety. The seven-inning game lasted about 1.5 hours during a warm summer evening, and resulted in the first Meridian victory of the season with a final score of 13-2. Team Photographer, Dennis O’Connell, was on-hand to shoot photos of the action, some of which are shown above.
The next Meridian softball game will be on Wednesday, July 18 at Tucci Field against powerful rival Apollo Jets. Andrew Ladouceur, Team Captain, had this to say, “Playing against our good friends at Apollo gives us all a chance to see each other in a different environment. The competition is stiff, but we always have a great time when our two groups get together.”
