Hi folks,

Just as the colder and darker days of Autumn and Winter draw nearer (or have arrived in some areas of the USA), a warm summer feeling still lingers in the air.

The Long Island Ducks have announced their 2017 baseball season schedule.

Fehlandt Lentini, outfielder for the Long island Ducks has received two post season honors this year, 2016 Post-Season All-Star Team and the Red, White and Blue All-Defensive Team.

His defensive tactics were of a high level, playing in 133 games in the outfield committing just three errors for a .990 fielding average. His strong accurate arm and speed were just two of his major attributes, while having a keen sense of the game added to his performance.

Offensively, he also assisted in helping the Ducks during the season and helped bring them to post season play. Here are some statistics (from the Long Island Ducks website) for 2016: “He led all Atlantic League players in hits (179), runs (108), doubles (42) and at bats (571) while also becoming one of only three players in league history to appear in all 140 games during the regular season (Lew Ford, Ducks, 2014 and Jovan Rosa, New Britain, 2016). In addition, Lentini ranked second in the league in total bases (260), extra-base hits (57), stolen bases (51) and stolen base percentage (.911), third in triples (6) and fifth in batting average (.313) and runs batted in (75).”

Fehlandt Lentini has been a major asset to The Long Island Ducks for three years and plays an outstanding game with excellent hustle, talent and spirit.

Summers End

The Long Island Ducks faced the Sugerland Skeeters for the Atlantic League Championship final best of 5 series yesterday and lost 5-3, giving the Skeeters a three game sweep over the Ducks.

The Liberty Division Series was very exciting, with the Ducks winning the last three games to capture the title 3 games to two. Somerset is a very tough team to beat and the Ducks had many players that came through in the clutch to help win it over one of the leagues better teams.

While a sad moment for fans of the Ducks, it was not a disappointing season. They did well in the first half:

The second half was not as impressive, as new players were acquired and given opportunity to play and prove themselves, while management was working on a new techniques and establishing a new and even better line up. It didn’t pan out, yet it worked out enough to have the Ducks get ready for the Somerset Patriots in the Liberty Division Series. The Ducks had already earned a spot for the series by winning the first half.
