Seems like only yesterday that we were telling you about Ryan Remo who was then in between his junior and senior years at Mahwah High School.

Ryan Remo - FordhamFollowing the end of his high school career, Ryan chose to take an offer from New York City’s Fordham University. Used exclusively in relief in his first 14 starts as a freshman, he made his first collegiate start on April 20 a memorable one.

Facing the Lions of Columbia University, Ryan went seven very strong innings, allowing one run on four hits and four walks while striking out a pair in a 4-1 Rams victory.

14U Eagles pitcher Andrew Meisner

14U Eagles player Andrew Meisner finished up his 2014 fall season with a flourish. One of the team’s top pitchers the previous three seasons, Andrew settled into a very strong groove down the stretch as the Eagles secured the #2 seed in the 2014 fall season of the PBI Baseball League.

In his last three appearances, Andrew tossed 15 innings allowing just two runs. The highlight was a 4-0 shutout against a tough Rutherford Dawgs team on the final day of the regular season. He held the Dawgs to just four hits while striking out eight and walking only one.

In the championship game against the Northern Valley Coyotes, Andrew threw four shutout innings.

His bat was strong too, with eight hits in his final ten at bats over the regular season and playoffs.

Eagles Spotlight On – Dylan Santos

Santos pic10U Eagles shortstop Dylan Santos, who’s been shining on defense already this fall, has made his presence known with his bat, too.

On Sunday October 5th against Teaneck, Dylan slammed his first career over-the-fence home run in the bottom half of the first inning with one out and a runner on second to give the Eagles a 2-1 lead. He ended the day (doubleheader) going 4-6 with the home run, 3 singles and 4 runs batted in. He also had a pair of walks and a three stolen bases.

All in all, a very nice afternoon for Dylan!

Eagles Spotlight On – 10U Eagles

10U-1The Eagles welcomed eleven brand new players to the program this fall with the re-introduction of a 10U team. Under the direction of head coach Wayne Richardson, the team kicked off its inaugural season with an exciting 10-5 win over the Nanuet Knights on Opening Day.

The victory was highlighted by four scoreless innings thrown by Motomu Sasho while shortstop Dylan Santos anchored the defense at short stop with a couple of tremendous plays, as did Michael Staino at first base. The team also did an exceptional job running the bases right out of the gate.

10U-2Mason Cohen and Marc Marron each had a pair of hits and Michel Kronick contributed two RBI’s to help put the Eagles in the win column in their debut.

With Ryan Remo’s Dad Jeff being one of the first employees hired when Doug Cinnella started Professional Baseball Instruction in 1993, it’s no surprise that Ryan would literally grow up around the game of baseball.

Ryan is currently playing on the Eagles 17U scout team for coach Steve Hayward after putting up some rather astonishing numbers as a junior this past spring for Mahwah High School – in 2014 he earned 10 wins, striking out 40 and walking only 11 with a 1.79 earned run average in 62.1 innings.

His performance on the mound has attracted the attention of a number of colleges including Columbia and Fordham.

A two-sport athlete at Mahwah, Ryan is expected to be the starting quarterback for the Thunderbirds this fall.
