The HBA 8-year-old Mid-Island All Stars came to play Monday night, Aug. 8 at Central Nassau. Chris Eccher continued his hot hitting; Nicky Diano, Tyler Krom-Power and Douglas Fillipone also contributed to the offensive attack. Nick Kozerski started a five-run rally in the second inning working out a walk and then stealing second. Mike Cuomo came up with the play of the night as he fielded a tough groundball at shortstop and threw to Johnny Blazich who tagged the runner out at third. Super pitching by Jack Fama, who pitched two solid innings, and the flame-throwing Jordan Ramlogan, who struck out the side in the sixth to nail down the 16-10 victory for Hicksville.
The 31st annual Stop World Hunger Tennis Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10 – a great opportunity to play tennis and help those in need.
Fortunately, hunger doesn’t affect most of us directly. Unfortunately, more than 300,000 people on Long Island receive food assistance annually. Throughout the world, it’s estimated that six million people die each year from starvation.

It was very hot and humid on July 21. There was a very pleasant breeze, but you had to be sitting in the shade to enjoy it (hard to do if you are playing golf!). There were 37 men playing and they hit a total of 30 pars with Sevald Knudsen having four. Ten men shot under net par and only one man shot even par for the round. The next tournament on Aug. 4 will be the third round in our match play tournament. As soon as you get to the park, find out who you will be playing against and sign in together. You must play in the same foursome as your opponent.
While the future of the New York Islanders’ franchise might be on thin ice, it was business as usual for head coach Jack Capuano at the team’s annual prospects mini-camp at the Nassau Coliseum on July 14.
Nassau County residents, who will have the chance to approve a $400 million bond on Aug. 1 to finance a new arena for the team, could possibly help remedy some of the uncertainty. Team owner Charles Wang publicly stated it’s unlikely the Islanders will remain in Uniondale beyond 2015 – when the current building lease expires – if a new arena isn’t approved.
The Hicksville Baseball Association Senior League Championship was won by the Blue Claws, a team everyone said could never compete with The Iron Birds.
The sun was shinning and it seemed like it was going to be a great day. Then the humidity hit us. Some men were able to play through it but many men started to slow down as they progressed through the round, as shown by the scores. We had 39 men but only 20 pars and Pete Guerra got four of them. There was one birdie by Dave Malle on the par 3, 173-yard, 3rd hole. Seven men shot under par and three shot even par for the round. The next tournament on July 21 will be the second round in our match play tournament. As soon as you get to the park, find out who you will be playing against and sign in together. You must play in the same foursome as your opponent.
