Call them summer rentals.

That is essentially what the players in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League are. Colleges entrust their players to the care of the HCBL clubs for the purpose of training and development. The Riverhead Tomcats’ new manager, Mike Amendola, had an apropos analogy. “Number one is sending them back healthy,” he said, “and the line I keep using is you’re driving somebody else’s Ferrari, so you got to make sure you treat it as such.”

Just because a high school athlete wins an Athlete of the Year award one year doesn’t mean she will win it the following year. And just because she didn’t win it last year doesn’t mean she will not win it this year.

Faced with the prospect of being victimized by a no-no, Mattituck turned the tables rather suddenly, first saying no no-hitter for Rondout Valley, and then no state semifinals for the Ganders.

Instead, it will be Mattituck heading to the state Class B semifinals for the second time in three years. Just how the Tuckers managed to do it is a testament to how crazy baseball can be sometimes.

Southold has a batting order you can count on — like 1, 2, 3.

That would be as in the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 batters at the top of its order. They made Southold’s ascension to the Long Island Class C baseball championship Thursday look as simple as 1, 2, 3.

Pat McFarland, Luke Hansen and Shane Zimmer combined for 10 RBIs and seven hits as Southold romped, 13-5, over East Rockaway.
