The Syosset Baseball Association and the Town of Oyster Bay recently announced the overhaul of the Syosset Woodbury Community Park 60-foot baseball field in time for the opening day game to take place on Wednesday, April 14.
Syosset Baseball Association and its members extend a sincere thank you and appreciation to Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto, Town of Oyster Bay Commissioner of Parks James Byrne, Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor of Parks Mikey Rauff and his staff for their commitment and dedication to the revitalization of this field.
Venditto and his team have been an integral part of our community, taking valued time from their schedule to engage in SBA’s community building programs, according to the association. The children in the baseball programs are fortunate to have Venditto and his staff join them for flagship events, such as our upcoming Memorial Weekend All-Star games and picnic and the year-end Annual Awards Dinner.
With this overhaul of the 60-foot baseball field at Syosset Woodbury Community Park, Syosset Baseball Association can now proudly showcase the home field to the kids, their families and other towns that come to visit and play. This premier baseball field provides a game experience for youth baseball as the game was meant to be played.
Thanks to Syosset Baseball Association Board members and head of the field maintenance team, Larry Meltzer and Doug Mayer for coordinating with Venditto’s team in bringing this overhaul project to life and reality.
Syosset Baseball Association would like to remind everyone that this is the first year of an opening day game on Wednesday, April 14 featuring one game at this field, commemorating the grand reopening overhaul of this field. Everyone is invited to this evening’s event. The game between last year’s Major League Champion and runner-up with feature TJM and Manager Tony Maracic against Island Orthodontics and Manager Lou Del Maestro. Opening Day festivities will include presentation of the colors for the national anthem as well as the singing of the national anthem by Syosset’s Holly Roselle and throwing out of the ceremonial first pitch to commemorate our 56th season’s opening.
