Billy Hofacker, of Total Body Boot Camp (TBBC) Long Island, has announced that his boot camp in Farmingdale recently raised $263 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“Inspired by the 2012 Olympics in London, we held our own version,” Hofacker told the Observer.
Congratulations Tommy Dittmeier. The Zwanger Pesiri Radiology (ZP) outfielder is the newest Over the Hill Gang Player of the Week. Dittmeier slammed four hits, drove in four runs and scored three to lead ZP to a 21-9 win over McCourt & Trudden Funeral Home.
It was an all-around good night for ZP and winning pitcher Brian Tinney. The bats were alive and the defense was sharp. After 10 years of nailing runners, you would think outfielder Bino Reverberi’s arm would not be tested very often. Not true. He had three assists Friday, including a laser to home plate from deep in right center field.
Farmingdale Fusion U13 girls’ soccer team won first place at the East End Soccer Tournament in Mastic on Aug. 12.
The 17th hole is considered to be a signature hole of the course. During the 2002 and 2009 U.S. Open Championships, which were held at Bethpage Black, a loud and enthusiastic crowd helped to put a New York stamp on those tournaments. Barclays tournament directors are hoping for that same excitement as players arrive at the challenging hole.
On Sunday, Aug. 12, the Farmingdale Greendogs became the 2012 13U National Junior Champs. The Greendogs had a long and grueling summer schedule of baseball, culminating, for the final weekend with a two-out-of-three best championship against the defending 2011 champions, the Baymen of Oyster Bay.
The boys battled through the blistering summer heat both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday’s first game went to the Greendogs (14-2) while the second game went to the Baymen (3-1), forcing the final game for the championship on Sunday.
Registration is now open for the 27th annual Bethpage Federal Credit Union Ocean to Sound 50-Mile Relay.
The date is Sunday, September 23, but it’s not too early to start putting your team together for Long Island’s biggest running extravaganza.
Congratulations to BK Sweeney’s first baseman Kevin Brosnan. He is the latest Over the Hill Gang Player of the Week. Brosnan blasted two homers and a double while driving in six runs during BK’s 22-7 win over Paradox Cafe. Paradox delivered Brosnan the ultimate compliment, intentionally walking him in the eighth inning.
The win lifts Sweeney’s record to a league-leading 13-1. Besides Brosnan, a long list of batters joined the hit parade. George Moerler with four RBIs; Mark Hemminger, Johnny Longo and Jim Hickey with three RBIs; Jim Felicia’s HR and three RBIs; and Byron Bodine, Jack DeBobes, George Cohan, Joey Girimonte and Mike Magro chipped in with two hits each. Outstanding pitching from Jim Hickey kept the hard-hitting Paradox team off stride for most the game.
On Saturday, Aug. 11 the Plattduetsche Park Restaurant will host a Long Island premiere performance of the off-Broadway hit, Kid Shamrock, a play written by Bobby Cassidy, Jr. based on the life of his dad, ex-contender, Bobby Cassidy, Sr.
“I think anyone who loves drama will love the play and the fights; boxing is so dramatic in itself and a play about fighters only lends itself to further drama,” Cassidy, Jr. told Anton Newspapers.
This year, the kids, ranging in age from 7 to 12, were from the Hempstead Boys & Girls Club, the South Queens Boys & Girls Club, Hispanic Counseling Center of Hempstead, and Island Harvest. Farmingdale was well represented by its Little Leaguers, including Nick Brannick, Nicholas DiSanti, Anthony Battaglia, James DiSanti, Robby Keane, Steve Pantano, Matthew DiSanti and Matt Gonzalez.
The beakers, test tubes and other equipment in the laboratory of William Van Nostrand, PhD, professor in the departments of neurosurgery and medicine at Stony Brook University School of Medicine, do not give hints toward one of his driving passions – pounding the pavement, pedaling for miles, and swimming for hours, all to advance awareness against Alzheimer’s disease. On Saturday, Aug. 11, Dr. Van Nostrand will compete in New York City’s first Ironman Triathlon.
Dr. Van Nostrand conducts studies in his laboratory on the molecular pathology of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the fatal illness affects more than five million Americans and is a leading cause of death and disability in an aging U.S. population. Dr. Van Nostrand, who has competed in many athletic events, including bike rides, road races, swimming events and triathlons, will compete in several events this summer to support Alzheimer’s disease research.
