Oh to be 20 and Playing Baseball by Michael Mackey, Host of Long Island Morning Edition

May 26, 2016

This week our WPPB TBT pitches a local example of national pastime success. For on the first Friday of June 2016, The Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League begins its 9th season of operation "providing first-quality competition, coaching and facilities, all in the backdrop of a world-class summer resort community." Moreover, the HCBL website states, "On the field, we have placed teams that have been ranked nationally in the summer league rankings...talented and dedicated athletes recruited from more than 80 universities, including Stanford, Vanderbilt, UConn, St. John’s, Southern Miss, Duke, Maryland, Texas A&M, Long Beach State, Minnesota and more. The Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League is a non-profit organization that partners with local businesses and community members to provide eastern Long Island with world-class collegiate baseball in a small town setting." HCBL’s commitment to improving and creating community ball fields while providing free family entertainment featuring role model student athletes is a 21st century legacy in the making; a delightful example of keeping our grand old game real amidst the modern mayhem of another summer in THE HAMPTONS!
