Bob Hilsky left an indelible mark on the face of Hicksville baseball, as well as countless local players. This Saturday, that mark becomes official as the Hicksville High School varsity baseball field is renamed in honor of Coach Bob.
The entire community is invited to this Saturday’s 11 a.m. ceremony, where the Board of Education will dedicate the varsity baseball field as Coach Bob Hilsky Memorial Field to honor Hilsky’s 30 years of coaching baseball. Hilsky also taught in the district elementary schools before retiring in 1995. Hilsky passed away this past January at the age of 75.

There was a time when boxing was the hottest ticket in town. People cleared their schedules to watch famous fights such as Ali-Frazier and Duran-Leonard. Even the motion pictures that portrayed prize-fighters were box-office hits. Local professional boxer Anthony Karperis may be able to play a hand in turning the clock back, if he continues to make an impact in the ring.
Nowadays, boxing has been surpassed by MMA—specifically UFC—in popularity. Karperis, a native of Hicksville, feels that the product has become diluted due to the ubiquity of the competitions.

Every once in a while you just tip your cap to the opposition. That was the type of game it was for Hicksville’s JV baseball team in their 3-0 loss to Massapequa. The starting pitcher for the Massapequa Chiefs, Patrick Clyne threw a complete game shutout, while allowing three hits, walking none and striking out four.
Clyne was forced to pitch under duress only one time and that was in the third inning with the game still scoreless. He allowed a two-out single to opposing pitcher Terrence Wong. The next two batters followed with infield hits to load the bases. He was able to make a big pitch, however, to end the threat and keep the Comets off the board.
