Parent Training Seminar Presented in Farmingdale
On Wednesday, June 28, Assemblyman Joseph S. Saladino (R-Massapequa), hosted a compelling Parent Training Seminar at Farmingdale Public Library, called Protecting our Children from Sexual Predators. The meeting room at the library was about half full for the occasion, with concerned parents and members of the community eager to learn more about the increasing epidemic of sexual abuse and Internet predators.

June 30 Games: On June 30 the OTHG, by using what was originally scheduled as an off week, made up one of their three rainouts. The schedule from the May 12 rainout had Synergy opening up against Mers Pub team on the 60' diamond with Synergy getting back on the winning track as they beat the ever-tough Mers crew 14-8. The game was close until Synergy was able to put together a rally that was started by second year man Bob Huebner's triple. Adding to the big hit barrage were Benny Macchia and Aldo Balducci who both smacked home runs. The Synergy defense backed a great performance that was turned in by veteran pitcher Richie Dargie. Also contributing key multi-hit nights were Billy Fitzpatrick (who played a great shortstop), Dave Rubino, Bruce Coonan, and Al Devine. Breaking out with singles when the team needed them most was Bob Ceriello. It was reported that later that night Tommy Vanasco was observed doing a lot of crying in his glass about going hitless. The early game on the 90 had the resurgent Bar Boy team pairing up against Singletons in a divisional match-up. Both teams started out playing tight as they went into the home half of the fourth tied at one that Singletons broke with three runs for a 4-1 lead but Bar Boy responded right away with two runs of their own in the fifth and one more in the sixth to tie the score. Now it was Red's turn to bounce back which they did with three in their half of the inning to go up 7-4. Bar Boy stayed tough as they banged out four in the eighth to go up 8-7 which Singletons immediately evened up in their half. After a scoreless ninth, the game moved into the tenth where Big Red pushed across the winner on rookie Larry Grieshaber's third hit of the game giving Singletons an exciting 9-8 victory. Besides Larry G, hitting stars with three hits were rookie Alan Rapfogel and Dennis Passaretti. Adding two hits each were Gary Saccaro (including a HR), Bob Davis and Benny Alberto, who did a fine job in relief.
