MAA Senior League Team Continues to Dominate
Quietly, an unsung group of Mineola young men have compiled a string of consistent successes on the town baseball diamond. The team wages battle under the banner of the Mineola Athletic Association without a surname to distinguish them. These athletes, led by the tutelage of manager Terry Mooney and assistant Tom Brostek, dominated the 2006 East Meadow Senior Baseball League by marching to the championship game for the third consecutive year. This rising bunch of local sophomores and juniors are forming a strong nucleus, which will benefit the Mineola High School Varsity baseball team for years to come and they are having fun doing it.
