Smith Powers Sleepy Hollow Reds to Walk-off Victory over Giants

Submitted by Frank Panebianco, manager, Sleepy Hollow Reds

Last week, Sleepy Hollow Reds first baseman and captain Mark W. Smith found himself in the national news on the Fox News Channel discussing and analyzing the tragic events in Dallas, Texas.  The Reds play in the 40-over division of the Westchester/Putnam (West-Put) MSBL in New York.

Mark is a former professor of law and is a New York Times bestselling author who is occasionally called upon to speak on the air about important news topics as an analyst.  But on this past Sunday, Smith led the Sleepy Hollow Reds to victory over the Westchester County league-leading Westchester Giants and their star pitcher. Smith played a flawless first base while delivering a 3-for-4 day at the plate while driving in five RBIs, and also delivering a sacrifice fly. Smith’s five RBIs powered the Reds to a 10-9 victory. Smith's biggest hit came with his two-run "walk-off" single, which he delivered with two outs and two strikes against him in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Needing only one more strike for the victory, the Giants’ pitcher fired a hard slider to Smith, who drove the pitch into right field for an opposite-field hit and the game winner. Smith is the captain of the Reds and has played in the MSBL World Series in Phoenix, Arizona on multiple occasions for MSBL Hall of Fame coach Bruce Bendish of the Westchester Mets.
