ROCKLAND COUNTY TIMES VOLUNTEER OF THE WEEK:  (Mon, 3/20/17)
Josh Einhorn, WNLL Baseball Volunteer Umpire

Character, good judgment plus the ability to get along with young baseball players and coaches are the attributes of an excellent volunteer umpire. This individual commands respect, knows the rules of the game, reacts spontaneously to play situations and makes decisive calls. Common sense applied to the interpretation of the Baseball Rule Book is also a sign of a well-prepared official.

MORE PERFECTION IN A GAME, Journal News, Sun, March 26, 2013

Paxton Meyers, 11, of West Nyack, pitched the first perfect game in West Nyack Little League’s 54-year history on April 26, 2013.

The Major League West Nyack Giants won the game 4-0 with Meyers getting 18 straight outs over six innings.

Ironically, last year Meyers’ team was on the other end of a perfect game going into the bottom of the sixth inning with two outs. Meyers came to bat, and an epic 14-pitch battle ensued with him walking to break up the perfect game.

The team is managed by Dan Burke and coached by Glenn Meyers.

Meyers is the son of Ilana and Glenn Meyers and the brother of Garrick (Ricky), Mackenzie and Waverly. Glenn Meyers will be inducted into the Clarkstown High School North Hall of Fame June 15, 2013. Glenn Meyers had an illustrious high school and college career and played professionally in the California Angels’ and Minnesota Twins’ organizations.
