Baseball – a simple game that somehow allows us, for a few hours, to push our troubles, our fears, our sadness to the back of our minds, and bring about a sense of community, family, togetherness.
As the fall baseball season for the 15U St Ignatius Cardinals team was about to commence, the players, coaches and families presided over a small but emotional ceremony at Giese Park in Hicksville, to remember not only those who were lost during the attacks of 9/11, but also to remember those who survived and carried on, those that returned to work, returned to school, returned to the athletic field, so that those who gave their lives did not do so in vain.
The St Ignatius Cardinals’ 15U fall baseball season is soon approaching, and is scheduled to start on Sunday, Sept. 11.
To honor this day, and to remember those who were lost as well as those who survived and persevered, we will be conducting a short ceremony prior to the start of the game. We have invited some local dignitaries, as well as some local active and retired members of the FDNY and police departments. After the game, which will be a single nine-inning wood bat game – real baseball – there is planned a picnic with our Cardinal family and our honored guests.
