As the journey to Cooperstown for the 2011 Syosset Cubs representative team draws near, the Syosset Baseball Association would like to update the community on recent happenings.
Thanks go out to those that came out to support the team and enjoy an evening of Monday Night Football at Christiano’s Italian Restaurant on Monday, Dec. 6, 2010, when the New York Jets took on the New England Patriots. This successful fundraising event, featuring the guest bartending coaches, provided a nice counterpoint to a disappointing evening of football, since the Jets play didn’t provide for a victory in this highly anticipated game. Thanks go out to owner Mike Elardo and his team for the great place, food and drinks in helping the team towards their journey in July.
