One wise fan confided to Base Paths Friday morning, “I saw more heart in that team yesterday than I did in four whole years with the Mets.”

PLAY OF THE WEEK: Falls softball infielder Stephanie Bielec took off for first after striking out with two out vs. Orchard Park, so startling the Quaker catcher that she dropped the ball and Stephanie reached safely. That’s Marty Brown’s kinda ballplayer.
