Oneonta Tournament

Oneonta swept the 12U and 10U championships during the annual Oneonta Little League Tournament on Sunday.

The Oneonta Gold Team defeated Cooperstown, 11-9, in the 12U final at Doc Knapp Field. Relief pitcher Paul Zimmer got out of a bases loaded jam with none out in the sixth for the save. Zimmer caught a line drive back to the mound and doubled off a runner at first base for the first two outs.

Zach Rigas earned the pitching victory for the Gold Team (12-5), which received three hits from Mariano Hernandez and two apiece from Gabe House, Joel Levins and Gunnar Hassard.

The Oneonta White Team held on for a 6-5 victory over Stamford in the 10U title game at the minor league field adjacent to Doc Knapp Field. Kevin Kurkowski earned the pitching victory in relief for the White Team (10-2), which scored its sixth run in the top of the sixth when Zyeir Lawrence sent a shot over the left-center field fence for his first home run.

Andrew Shapiro tripled and doubled in a 2-for-3 effort for the White Team, which plays in a Binghamton tournament starting Tuesday.

Also Sunday, Oneonta Little League announced that Jim Gregory Sr. won the annual raffle for a limousine ride and tickets for eight people to Yankee Stadium. Gregory’s grandsons Tyler and Brandon play for the Oneonta Blue and Oneonta White All-Star teams, respectively.
