Last week, The Record covered the Lansingburgh Lady Royals as they prepared for the same tournament.

Thank you goes to Lorrie Pizzola, a mother of a player on the East Greenbush Express, who gave us the heads-up on this, as well as to Lisa O'Brien, who sent us a roster and pictures.

We love to pass this news along, but we can't do it without your help, so if you have any tournament results, please send it to us at

The Albany Twilight League playoffs begin tonight. Here is a press release sent to us by Albany Athletics head coach Joe Altieri.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- The Albany Twilight League will open its 2010 postseason at Bleecker Stadium on Monday, August 2 with the top seed and defending League champion Albany Athletics taking on No. 4 Blue Slate Blue Hawks, and No. 2 All Stars Academy hosting No. 3 Waterford Nolan Propane.

The Athletics, who won the Twilight League regular season with a 20-4 mark for the third time in the last four years, started the season 3-2 and then went on to win 16 straight league games. All Stars Academy (18-6) meanwhile started the season hot with an 8-0 start and returns to the playoffs after failing to qualify in 2009. Waterford Nolan Propane, the 2009 Twilight League and State Tournament Runner Up, bounced back from a 4-6 start to go 11-3 and end the season 15-9. First-year franchise Blue Slate Blue Hawks (13-11) qualified as the No. 4 seed by winning their last four games of the season.

Winners of each series will advance to the Twilight League Championship Series following the North Atlantic Regional tournament this weekend. (more info to come later in the week on the Regionals).

All Stars, who just captured their first state title Sunday, and the Athletics, who have nine state championships including four straight (2006-09), have both earned berths in the North Atlantic Regional Tournament August 6-8.

Monday, August 2nd:
6:30 pm - #2 All Stars vs #3 Waterford Nolan Propane
8:30 pm - #1 Albany Athletics vs #4 Blue Slate

Tuesday, August 3rd:
6:30 pm - #4 Blue Slate Blue Hawks vs #1 Albany Athletics
8:30 pm - #3 Waterford Nolan Propane vs #2 All Stars Academy

Wednesday, August 4th, if necessary:
6:30 pm - #2 All Stars vs #3 Waterford Nolan Propane
8:30 pm - #1 Albany Athletics vs #4 Blue Slate

Note: home teams listed first

One more note of interest to local baseball fans...the East Greenbush-Castleton Little League team was ousted from the New York State Tournament Sunday night, losing to South Shore 8-3.
South Shore plays Stony Point in the championship game tonight at 7:30 p.m. in West Nyack.

In other Little League news, World Series coaches will now be able to challenge calls thanks to a video replay system in Williamsport.

Will the Major Leagues follow suit?
