The Jericho Athletic Association recently celebrated the close of another successful baseball/softball program, and the kickoff for the “new and improved” Spring 2013 season with the JAA Annual Baseball Dinner, held at North Shore Synagogue in Syosset.
This past year, 265 boys and 130 girls participated in JAA baseball/softball programs. Both enjoyed free clinics offered by the JAA using professional organizations, a full slate of games, and once again, both baseball and softball enjoyed games at home, as well as against neighboring towns, giving the boys and girls in our program an intramural experience with a travel feel.
The dinner was a huge success, attended by over 220 people. The evening started with a surprise appearance of “Mr. Met” and was highlighted with a special guest speaker from the New York Mets, Ike Davis.
