Brandon
"SCOOP"
Gould

Position: 1B
Bats: Right
Throws: Right   
        


The 'Goulden Boy' in a proud TCNJ graduate and vintage base ball jack of all trades. He is a superb power hitter and a sure pair of hands anywhere you drop him on a ball field. This season Gould will man first base for the Resolutes under the watchful eye of longtime sure handed first baseman Paul Salomone.

  


Anthony
"SCRAPPY"
Ferrone

      Position: SS       
Bats: Right
Throws: Right


Ferrone is playing in his 14th season with the Resolutes and is looking forward to one of the best of his career.  Always playing hard-nosed base ball, "Scrappy" leaves everything on the field.  A Cranford, NJ native, Anthony is very versatile in the infield playing both shortstop second base with ease.

 


Denis
Lapari

Position: P, OF
Bats: Left
Throws: Left

A sure handed outfielder and power hitter, Denis has quickly established himself as a top notch vintage pitcher with the unique ability to excel in ALL types of vintage rules.  Whether it's an overhand battle with the Grays, a one hop match with the Atlantics or an 1870s fly ball game with the Flemington club, you can always rely on Denis to keep strikers guessing when he takes the pitchers point for Elizabeth.


Danny Jurgens

Position: P, OF
Bats: Right
Throws: Left


Danny Broke into the Vintage leagues in 2003 with the Elizabeth Resolutes and also played for the Rahway Union and Elizabeth Athletic Club.  Born in Brooklyn, escaping the mean streets of New York in the early 90's, Jurgens enjoyed hunting birds with rocks as a child.  Some say this led to his accurate throwing arm.  Known as a good runner, he always puts the ball in play and once had four hits in a game without the ball leaving the infield.

Danny Marcus

Position: RF
Bats: Right
Throws: Right


Hailing from Highland Park, New Jersey, Marcus joined the Resolutes in 2005.  Entering his 10th season Danny will hold down right field for Elizabeth and play some center and left field when needed.  One of his fondest memories is Winning the 4th of July Verona Cup in 2008 and always enjoys putting it to the Neshanocks of Flemington.  While Marcus excels at 1870 Rules, he also enjoys the 1864 1 Bound Fly Rule and the fact that foul balls are not tallied as strikes.     


Paul
"QUICKSTEP" Salomone

Position: 1B
Bats: Right
Throws: Right


Paul "Quickstep" Salomone founded the Elizabeth Resolutes Base Ball Club in 2000.  Paul has captained the club ever since, playing many positions ranging from first base to outfield to catcher. Because of the Resolute's history, Paul has introduced 1873, and 1870 rules into regular match play in vintage base ball. Paul was also once recognized in the Westfield Leader for having had seven hits, seven runs scored, and seven runs batted in during a victory over the Flemington Neshanock Base Ball Club.

   
 


MyHeaven
Aaron

Position: 3B
Bats: Right
Throws: Right

The newest addition to the Resolutes, MyHeaven has quickly established himself as one of the sharpest third basemen in all of vintage base ball.  With sure hands and an accurate cannon for an arm, opponents think twice before pulling the ball down third when they see Heaven patrolling the line.  


Matt
Fischetti

Position: 3B, C
Bats: Right
Throws: Right

In his first season with the Resolutes, Matt has quickly established himself as an excellent hitter and solid defender who is a great asset to the club wherever he is on the field.  Matt hits for both average and power and has a strong and accurate arm.   


Darryl
Clyburn

Position: LF
Bats: Left
Throws: Left

Darryl has a sure pair of hands in the outfield and regularly wows the spectators with his over the shoulder catches and laser sharp relay throws to the infield.   Always a power threat from the left side of the plate, Darryl is known for his hard line drives and well struck hits down the right field line.

 


Jesse
Tomlinson

Position: CF
Bats: Right
Throws: Right

Jesse brings a sure bat to the 2014 Resolutes to complement his lightening speed on the basepaths and in the outfield.  Slotted as the everyday one hitter, Jesse rarely leads off a game without getting something started offensively for his club.  His well placed hits and speed on the bases are quite a sight to see.      


Will
Hoag

Position: CF
Bats: Right
Throws: Right

A serious player with a great bat, Will quietly racks up the hits for the Elizabeth club and soars around the bases with ease.   Will can hit with power to all fields and drives outfielders crazy with his ability to hit the ball in the gap and take an extra base on a poor or errant throw.  Guys like Will are the future of the Resolutes and we are happy to have him back for the 2014 season.


 


Josh
Gribbin

Position: 3B
Bats: Right
Throws: Right

After a brief 2013 Sabbatical Josh returns to the Resolutes this season ready to strike with a vengeance.  A strong hitter and maniacal base runner, Josh never passes up an opportunity to stretch a single into a triple and is known for his ability to surprise you with a stolen base at any given moment.  Josh even stole home base once against the Bog Iron Boys of Allaire Village while the pitcher's back was turned!
