Post 184 Splits Initial Two Games
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            American Legion Post #184 baseball team started its season by splitting two non-league games. On Tuesday, the team gave new manager Logan Curley his first career victory.

            Post 184 posted a 7-2 victory over Mt. Carmel on Tuesday at the Villanova Ballpark at Plymouth in Plymouth Meeting. Carson Peterson finished with two hits and one run scored to lead an eight-hit attack.

            Ryan Peterson added two hits for the Indians, who led 4-0 after scoring twice in the third inning and once each in the fourth and fifth innings.

            On the mound, Zach Gehman, Gabe Reptsik and Jake Ankele combined to allow just two hits.

            Perkiomen opened the season with an 11-2 non-league loss to North Parkland on Monday. Ankele registered a hit and stole a base. Peyton Borchelt worked 2 2/3 innings for the team. Sammy Zematis tossed two frames. Gavin Weiss started on the mound and lasted 1 1/3 innings.

            Curley is filling in for Mike Fitzgerald, who is not permitted to manage two players he coached this season at Montgomery County Community College. Fitzgerald is serving as the team's general manager for the current season.

            Curley expects the entire roster, consisting of 14 or 15 players, to make significant contributions. He said he sees everyone getting plenty of playing time.

            "I think we have a very solid squad," Curley said. "We're going to hit the ball, and we've got some speed. We have several quality pitchers. If they can throw strikes, and we can play defense, we should be pretty good."

            The Indians (1-1) expect to play 18 games in the Bux-Mont League, which is down to seven teams. Fitzgerald has scheduled four non-league games, including two against Boyertown. He expects to add a few more.

            Post 184 returning players include Zach and Blake Gehman, Brandon Mazzie, Gabe Reptsik, Ankele, Ryan Peterson and Jonathan Hansen. Ankele, Reptsik and Zach Gehman played in college.  "It's a good group," Fitzgerald said.

            The new players include Tyler Forrest, Josiah Repstik, Borchelt, Carson Peterson, Ryan Ferdock and Zematis. Forrest, Repstik and Borchelt played for Upper Perkiomen High School this spring. Ferdock competed for Pope John Paul II.

            Weiss is the only member of the Upper Perk Braves, which finished third in last year's Youth Legion State Tournament last year, to go out for the team. The other graduating players are competing on a local traveling team, according to Fitzgerald.  "It's disappointing," he said.

            Curley, a 2017 graduate of Upper Perkiomen, assisted Fitzgerald last season with the Indians. He played two years at Montco for Fitzgerald and was planning on walking onto the baseball team at West Chester University. However, COVID-19 altered his plans.

            Next spring, he expects to graduate from the school with a teaching certificate. Curley said his goal is to coach in high school and, eventually, at a college.

            The Indians will open their league schedule on the road against Plumstead at 6 p.m. on Monday. Their first home game is slated for two nights later against Nor-Gwyn.
