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.
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.

The Bridgeport Bluefish defeated the Long Island Ducks, 3-2, on July 27 in the first game of a four-game series at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard. In the game, Bryant Nelson earned the 2,000th hit of his minor league career in his 1,838th game.
Both teams remained scoreless until the bottom of the third inning when the Bluefish put up a three-spot against Ducks starter Mike Loree. RBI singles from Prentice Redman and Brock Peterson along with a sacrifice fly off the bat of Luis Lopez did the damage.
