The North Hempstead Town Board honored the New Hyde Park 12 and under baseball team prior to the Nov. 19 board meeting at Town Hall.
The New Hyde Park Blue Devils finished with an impressive 13-1 record in the National Junior Baseball League’s (NJBL) 12U National Division, taking home 1st place honors. The entire team was on hand to be awarded with certificates as well as their coaches Marlon Artigas, Phil Munoz, Dennis Rowinski, and Peter Yip.
“Each game it was someone else. It was all about teamwork,” Artigas said.
Councilman Angelo Ferrara, whose council district encompasses New Hyde Park, gave a brief recap of the Town’s history, and told the team that they, too, are now a part of North Hempstead’s compelling story.
