Over the years I have had many different coaches. All of them have taught me many things over those nine years, but the most important thing that my mom and Jackie taught me, as my coaches for many of those years, is that it isn’t always about winning. They always said, “Go out and have fun.” Some say we may have had too much fun.
Students in Maggie Connolly’s fourth-grade class at The Green Vale School had a very special visitor to their classroom in May – New York Giant’s linebacker and long snapper, Zak DeOssie. Miss Connolly and Zak, both graduates of Brown University, have been friends for years and she knows how restless he can get during the off-season. An afternoon with her class was a fun and energized event that her students will never forget.
The Jericho Blues took first place in the NL division of the Jericho Little League’s third/fourth-grade playoffs with a decisive 9-2 victory over the # 3 seed, the Jericho Orange. The game was played at Jericho High School in front of a vocal and supportive crowd.
The first place finish was truly a team effort. In addition to the regular season schedule against other Jericho teams, the Jericho Blues won games against Syosset and Westbury. They played as a team, won as a team, and every child played a role.
Despite the continued rain that plagued the spring in the New York area, the 2009 Syosset Baseball Association intramural season finally came to a close with Champions crowned in each of the 9-Senior League Divisions.
Thanks to the field maintenance team headed by board members Larry Meltzer and Bruce Ritter for their continued hard work and crew that they assembled to get all fields ready, willing and able to play in spite of Mother Nature’s rain deluge that we experienced and with everyone’s efforts working fields prior to games, all games were played to their conclusions and champions crowned.
Syosset Baseball Association would like to remind and welcome everyone to be a part of Long Island Ducks Family Night to be held at Citibank Park on Monday, Aug. 31 when the Long Island Ducks face the Somerset Patriots.
Syosset Baseball Association is pleased to announce that 11-year-old Brandon Feit pitched a perfect game on Saturday, June 27.
The game, played at Syosset Woodbury Park, first-game of a double header versus Oyster Bay, was the first game of the scheduled doubleheader managed by Tony Maracic.
Feit was virtually unhittable, striking out 16 of the 18 batters he faced in this 6-inning affair, won by Syosset 9-0.
Congratulations to Syosset endurance athletes Glen Malings and Robert Shaw, each of whom who successfully completed the Long Island Greenbelt Trail 25 Kilometer Run on Saturday, May 9.

On May 30, with much appreciation from Syosset Baseball Association and the family of Michael Wolkis, the field traditionally known as Lewis Lane field at the end of Edna Drive was renamed Michael Lewis Wolkis Field in memory of Michael Wolkis who passed away in November after being hit by a car on Halloween afternoon.
The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and the United States Golf Association recently detailed a range of sustainability practices that will be employed during the 2009 U.S. Open Championship, in keeping with the responsible environmental stewardship worthy of Bethpage State Park.
