Doug Flutie Helps Keep Military All-Stars Undefeated
NEW BEDFORD, MA - The Bay Sox of the New England Collegiate League and former Red Sox pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee faced the U.S. Military All-Stars and former NFL quarterback Doug Flutie Friday night. Currently on their 23rd annual "Red, White & Blue Tour presented by Veterans United, the Military All-Stars (13-0) are currently making their swing through New England playing numerous teams along the way. In an emotional ceremony, Bronze star recipient Captain Micha Kidney, U.S. Army was recognized during the Ground Zero Flag presentation and threw out the ceremonial first pitch. The U.S. Military All-Stars remained undefeated after a 7-4 win.

The much-anticipated match up was the first since 2009 between the two teams. Two celebrity guest players made the event even more special as former Boston Red Sox pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee was the starting pitcher for the Bay Sox and Doug Flutie handled the duties in the lead-off spot and as the starting second baseman for the All-Stars. Spaceman got Flutie to fly out to start the game, but he would be heard from again as he delivered a key run by running through the Bay Sox catcher on a play at the plate.

Pitcher Nick Friar (Northwestern U.) came in for Lee in the top of the second. With two quick strikeouts under his belt Friar walked James Frederick. Jared Hunt (FDNY) hit a long fly ball off the outfield wall for a double, driving in Frederick with the All-Star’s first run of the night.

Johnny Leiske (Illinois State University) came in for Friar in the top of the third. Flutie lead off the inning with a walk, and Jesse Jenner reached first on an error. Garrett Jenner hit a ground ball up the middle to reach first safely, moving J. Jenner to second and Flutie came home to make the game 2-0 All-Stars. With the bases loaded and no outs Zach Stanewicz doubled to score. Nick Sydnor (Navy) walked to load the bases and Jared Hunt was hit by a pitch to force in the 5th run of the game. Flutie added to the run total by hitting a sharp ground ball to third, who overthrew first base allowing Stanewicz and Sydnor to score.

Jack Folsom (USMC) relieved Voechting and suffered a misplay at third before walking both Stone and Farkes. Joe Zrinzo (Army) took over for Folsom. Seb Salvo (Fairfield U.) hit into a fielder's choice and picked up an RBI as Baldock scored from third making the final score 7-4. This was the last run of the night as Zrinzo earned the save for the U.S. Military All-Stars.

The U.S. Military All-Stars won 5-4 in Newport, RI and will head to Martha's Vineyard on Sunday to take on the Sharks in the Futures League.
