Eagles' Remo Tosses Team’s First No-Hitter
July 10, 2016
North Jersey Eagles pitcher Ryan Remo tosses no-hitter
By Dominick Savino | North Jersey Eagles

North Jersey Eagles pitcher Ryan Remo has spent nearly his entire baseball life in the Professional Baseball Instruction organization.

With his dad Jeff Remo installed as one of the longest-serving PBI youth instructors, Remo drew attention from numerous Division I programs as an ace on the baseball school’s 17U North Jersey Eagles summer showcase team.

The younger Remo also spent countless hours training and throwing at the PBI indoor facilities under the watchful eye of his father, who doubled as his son’s head coach at Mahwah High School, and Doug Cinnella, PBI’s founder and Remo’s high school pitching coach.

And now, after wrapping up his freshman year as a right-handed pitcher at Fordham University, Remo has a chance to play with the "big-time" North Jersey Eagles club in the ACBL and continue his success in the organization.

On a cool weekend night in Ridgefield Park, Ryan Remo did just that.

The Mahwah native was unhittable Saturday night at Overpeck Park, blanking the Lehigh Valley Catz 6-0 in the nightcap of a doubleheader to record the seven-inning no-hitter.

The feat is the first no-no in Remo’s collegiate career and marks the first in the Eagles’ eight-year history. That place in Eagles lore was nearly awarded in Game 1 of the twinbill to fellow Eagles starter Cory Heitler, whose only hit allowed in a complete-game victory was a homerun to designated hitter Zach Kurtz that delayed history by two hours.

Remo encountered his biggest jam of the evening in the third inning, issuing back-to-back walks with one out. However, shortstop Bobby Shannon converted a groundball deep in the hole into a heads-up fielder’s choice at third for the second out, and a fly ball to center allowed Remo to exit the inning unblemished.

The North Jersey bats awoke an inning later to provide their starter a lead. Tyler Benson laced a lead-off base hit to center off Lehigh Valley starter Tyler Forbes and swiped second for his team-high 15th stolen bag of the season. A batter later, Mario Fontanella singled home Benson to hand his team a 1-0 lead.

The Eagles would tag Catz relievers Mike Schwab and Eddie Lehr for five additional runs over the following two innings, but that was more than a stellar Ryan Remo would need.

He rebounded from the third-inning misstep to mow down Lehigh Valley batters through the sixth inning, where second baseman Matt Stalter made a leaping stab at a liner destined for right field and an across-the-body toss to first for a web-gem double play that ended the frame.

While Overpeck Park fell silent in the seventh and final inning, Ryan Remo continued about his business, recording a fly out to left field and a strike out for the first two of three heart-pounding put-aways.

After getting ahead in the count 0-2 against Catz shortstop Christian Pack, Remo induced a routine groundball to third, which Luis Amaro rifled accurately to first to complete the no-hit bid and doubleheader sweep of Lehigh Valley.

As the Eagles piled out of their dugout to congratulate their starter, the team also breathed a momentarily sigh of relief. North Jersey’s two wins on Saturday night elevate its record to 13-16-1, placing it one game behind Jersey for the second wild-card spot.

North Jersey will continue the hunt for a playoff spot on Tuesday, July 12, as the Eagles take on the Jersey Pilots at home in a pivotal matchup. Coverage will begin at 7:00pm with Eagles broadcaster Dominick Savino on http://mixlr.com/northjerseyeagles/.

Dan Jacobson tosses no-hitterDan Jacobson (Delaware) pitched a seven inning no-hitter as the Quakertown Blazers defeated the Trenton Generals 3-0 in the first game of a doubleheader at Memorial Park on Saturday.

Jared Melone (LaSalle) delivered a two run single for the Blazers.

The Blazers won the second game 5-3. Tyler Ksiazek (Monmouth) received the win and John Turner (Millersville) hit a three run double for the Blazers.
