Free Seminar Helps HS Baseball Players and Families Hit Home

Friday, 04 February 2011 00:00

February 21 in Garden City

Talented high school baseball players throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties, and New York City are hoping to defray the hefty price tag of a college education using their talents on the baseball diamond. Yet according to the NCAA, only 6.4 percent of high school students go on to play collegiate baseball and fewer still receive athletic scholarships.

High school baseball players and their families can take more of a proactive approach to succeed on the college level and beyond. Pro1 Sportz, a full-service, integrated sports agency serving New York and New Jersey is offering a free, no obligation seminar for high school baseball players and their families on navigating through the college recruiting process.

The New York Islanders teamed up with EmblemHealth to bring toys and holiday cheer to dozens of young hospital patients in Queens and Long Island. The event was the culmination of last week’s holiday shopping spree when players and their families personally selected gifts at Toys“R”Us. Both events were sponsored by EmblemHealth, which provides health insurance through its companies Group Health Incorporated (GHI) and HIP Health Plan of New York.

The entire team fanned out across Long Island and Queens to distribute toys, pose for photos and give autographs to young patients at seven area hospitals and a Long Island school for children with disabilities.
