Once again Mark Lubowsky pitched a great game for M&T who received offensive support from Vince Cardulo who went five-for-five with a homerun. Ending a Singletons rally was OF John Cardile's diving catch that saved the day for M&T. Rich McClorey and Frank Tiscione also made key defensive plays on the night for M&T.

Farmingdale Baseball held their Fifth Annual Pops Park Classic over the Fourth of July Weekend. In July 2001 the Town of Oyster Bay Park on Merritts Road (next to Bar Boy Restaurant Supply) was renamed to honor James "Pop" Sabellico, a lifetime Farmingdale resident who dedicated his life to baseball.

It culminates on the third day with presentations of the all-star trophies and food and drinks supplied by the Sabellico family.
