Country Farms Polo presents Polo at the Park, a series of special polo events at Bethpage State Park each Sunday afternoon through Oct. 14. Polo, once referred to as the “game of kings,” is now gaining popularity among competitive sports fans and those seeking casual, local and low-cost entertainment. Country Farms Polo operates a polo training and equestrian center in Medford, NY with indoor and outdoor polo fields operating year round.
“With its high speeds and energy, polo is the original extreme sport. With Polo at the Park we wanted to introduce Long Islanders to polo in a way that is accessible to everyone. Long Island has a tradition of horsemanship and a thriving equestrian community; polo is a natural fit for those looking for a new experience that is thrilling and relaxing at the same time,” said Bob Ceparano of Country Farms Polo in Medford.

Joe Auer is the latest Over the Hill Gang (OTHG) “Player of the Week.” The Lockie & Nowachek Family Chiropractors (L&N) outfielder belted a key two-run homer to spark his team to an 18-6 win over BarBoy. Auer went three-three with three RBIs and added a number of outstanding plays in the outfield.
L&N also got a big lift from Chris Theoharides (3 hits), Pete Hajko (3 hits, 3 RBIs, and a tremendous homerun), Tom Desantis (3 hits, 3 RBIs), and Thomas Joseph (3 hits). L&N was down 4–2 in the top of the fourth when Joe Auer followed Damon Pishva’s single with a homerun. L&N added six more runs in the inning to take a 10–4 lead. Ben Greco pitched the first five innings and was followed by Peter Cestare who allowed only one run in the last four innings. It was a well played game by the whole team.
On Monday, July 23, the Special Olympics New York Long Island Region will host its annual Gold Coast Tour for Champions Golf Outing at Old Westbury Golf and Country Club in Old Westbury. The event attracts some of the most prominent members of the business community on Long Island and in New York City, while raising funds and awareness for the athletes of Special Olympics New York.
“The Special Olympics New York Long Island Region is truly honored to honor Farmingdale State College President, Dr. W. Hubert Keen, at this year’s Gold Coast Tour for Champions Golf Outing,” said Diane Colonna, Regional Director of Special Olympics New York Long Island. “His continued support to Special Olympics and our athletes has made a strong impact.”
“John Franco is the true embodiment of a proud Italian American,” said Senator Fuschillo, who co-sponsored the resolution. “I’ve followed his career since he started with the Mets and couldn’t be happier to honor this great man for his many accomplishments. He may be known for his pitching career, but his humanity and service to the community are just as stellar.”

Congratulations to Autocraft’s Brian Landy. He’s the Over the Hill Gang’s Player of the Week for Friday, June 29. Landy went four-for-four with two home runs and two doubles producing seven RBIs while scoring four times. He also made a key defensive play in left field throwing out an McCourt & Trudden Funeral Home (M&T) runner at third base for an inning and rally ending out.
After a week’s rest due to stormy weather the well-rested Autocraft team returned to its old form besting M&T 24-to-5 in seven innings. M&T jumped out to an early four-run lead but Autocraft bats responded by outscoring them the rest of the game. Denny Oehl pitched a gem as he walked no batters struck out three and held the M&T team in check for most of the game. Autocraft played solid defense turning two double plays and Brian Landy assisted by throwing out a runner at third base.
