Much like any other Friday afternoon, on Aug. 1, the Over the Hill Gang held its weekly softball games at Ellsworth Allen Park in Farmingdale. However, this was no ordinary occasion for the men’s 40 and over softball league, which was playing to help raise funds for nine-year-old Sal Pugliese Jr., who has been dealing with Perthes Disease—which affects the hipbone.

 

“It’s awesome. This is what makes things happen... the fundraisers,” said Pugliese Jr.’s grandfather Anthony Betro. “Not covered by insurance so we’re relying on donations and the support of the community. That’s what makes the country great. Everybody pitches in when there’s need and magic happens. That’s what’s happening now.”
