Friends & Family Fight For Frank
This is an event open to everyone in the Boys of Summer family
The Boys of Summer in conjunction with Port Jefferson Sporting Goods and Baseball Heaven is holding a fund raiser to help one of our own on Sunday, November 24 at 9 a.m.. Frank Moscatiello Sr. suffered a massive stroke and is in need of home renovations to live in a handicapped accessible environment. Our goal is to raise the funding necessary to have builders come in and renovate the entrance to the home, bathrooms, bedroom and kitchen areas. This is a man who has gone out of his way to help neighbors and family his entire life and now he needs us.
We are going to have an 12-team round robin 16-inch Chicago style co-ed softball tournament at Baseball Heaven on Sunday, November 24 that will start at 9 a.m. Each team will register with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling my cell phone at 631-275-8415 to secure a spot in the event. This is a first-come-first served registration. We are looking for leaders and that can come in any gender or age. My son Jeffrey, a senior at Connetquot HS, has already secured his team and the first spot. Each team can have up to 20 players.
Each team will be asked to wear one of the eight different colors of uniforms that we will provide for the teams prior to the event. We are looking for team leaders for the eight teams. Each team will be asked to donate $400 toward the fund raiser. This is a great opportunity for young people to step up and lead for a great cause.
Each field will have a team leader, who will also serve as the umpire for the games on each of the four fields. Softballs will be readily available as will softball bats. Players need to bring their gloves and dress appropriately because it will be on the cooler side of November [but you never know lately].
This is about family. And the exciting part of this event is that it will be a family style atmosphere with all team lineups having a mandatory two women in a rotating lineup at all times. There is no age limit but players need to be at least 15 years old. There will be two guaranteed rounds of seven inning games on all four fields followed by a championship game and a third place game.
The day will commence with a 12:30 p.m. lunch in the Baseball Heaven restaurant. We have had a few restaurateurs offer to donate all the food. We will also have a chinese auction and a silent auction of memorabilia to raise additional funds. For all you NFL and fantasy guys all the TV's in the restaurant will have the games on during the event.
Anyone interested in making a donation can bring a check to the event or drop it off at these two locations; Center Island Sports, Ronkonkoma or Lighthouse Agency in Selden or you can go to Help Support Friends and Family Fight for Frank at www.giveforward.com.
Do to the outpouring of support we are going with a 14-team bracket for this event.
