The Yankees Score for Success
On July 20, a team of 12-year-old baseball players from Farmingdale, Massapequa, Massapequa Park and Wantagh traveled to Cooperstown to participate in skill competitions and a tournament. With only the two previous baseball games under their hat as the St. Killian's Yankees, the players were able to post a tournament record of five and two. This outstanding record can be attributed to the motivational talks and coaching skills of Dave Critelli, Bruce Burnett and George O'Malley. Each received a commemorative ring for their hard earned work and inspiration for their great play from Dave Lemanczyk, former major league pitcher, with whom they posed for a picture.
