Duvan Castro said after Hampton F.C.-Bill Miller’s 4-3 victory over Tortorella Pools in the Wednesday evening 7-on-7 league’s final on July 17 that for two years he had wanted to enter a team in the league, and that he had seized on East Hampton-Bayberry’s withdrawal this spring to do so.
Most of his players, he said, following the exciting win — it was as hotly contested a final as this writer can remember — had not played in the league before.
A showdown in the Montauk slow-pitch softball league on July 16 between the two division leaders, the Montauk Fire Department and Sloppy Tuna, an all-Dominican team whose player-manager is Jerry Uribe, resulted in a 6-1 win for the Fire Department.
Uribe said afterward that he was missing a few of his better players, promising a better game next time. Indeed, the play in Sloppy Tuna’s outfield that night was rather sloppy.
