Vinny Zanfardino started his coaching career in 1997 when he stepped up to coach his daughter’s Little League team.

On Saturday, May 18, the Town of Oyster Bay will conduct a ceremony to officially re-name its golf course in honor of Joseph Colby, a resident of Massapequa Park who served as the Town of Oyster Bay’s 56th supervisor. The Honorable Joseph Colby was appointed supervisor in 1977 and was elected to that office five times in the following ten years. He was then elected as a New York State Supreme Court Justice in 1988, a post he held through his retirement from public service in 1992. The unveiling will take place at the main entrance of the course off South Woods Road in Woodbury.
“When the sign for Honorable Joseph Colby Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course is unveiled, it will celebrate an outstanding career in public service,” Supervisor John Venditto said. “Joseph Colby has always had the needs of the public as his top priority and has been widely respected for his innovation and responsiveness. This golf course will now forever bear his name as a tribute to his outstanding legacy.”

Town of Oyster Bay residents and local officials gathered on Saturday, April 27 to re-dedicate the newly renovated little league baseball park known as “Pops” Sabellico Field.
The park, located on Merritts Road in Farmingdale, was first dedicated by the Town in 2001 to posthumously honor James “Pops” Sabellico, a lifetime resident of Farmingdale who dedicated his life to his family and, as a highly regarded baseball coach, the children of the community.
The Massapequa Observer A’s led early with great pitching by Michael Homan through three innings. In the top of the fourth, Michael Grisanti hit his first HR to put the A’s up 3-0. In the bottom of the inning, the Angels stormed back to tie the game 4-4. In the top of the sixth, the A’s went up 5-4 with a key hit by Robbie Cecala. Grisanti added the necessary insurance with another 3-run HR to put the A’s up 8-4. The Angels struck back in the bottom of the sixth with a 2-run HR by Matthew Zanfardino and the second of two doubles by Connor O’Rourke. With two outs and a man on third, the A’s held on for a thriller of a win. Earlier in the week the A’s had lost to the Park Physical Therapy Dodgers 3-1, with a solo HR by Grisanti.
The American Black Belt Academy is a thriving 20-year-old institution born out of one man’s love of the martial arts sits nestled between restaurants, doctor’s offices, and clothing stores in the middle of Massapequa Park.
