Supervisor Joseph Saladino and the Oyster Bay Town Board, in coordination with Massapequa Coast Little League, invite residents to cheer on the members of the Massapequa Coast Little League as they make history as the first Long Island team to make it to the Little League World Series in more than 40 years. This Friday night, August 19th, the Town will stream the first game of the Little League World Series live at 7:00 p.m. at John Burns Park, on the fields where the 12-year-olds play at home.
“We are so proud of our hometown champions and congratulate them on earning a place in the World Series in Williamsport after winning the Metro Region Championships last week,” said Supervisor Saladino. “These dedicated athletes have the honor of making history as they were the first team to advance to the regionals, and now the first to compete in the Little League World Series, in Coast Little League’s 72-year history. We invite the community to come out and root for the home team this Friday night at Burns Park!”
Residents are invited to bring chairs, blankets and coolers to the watch party. Friday night marks the first game Massapequa Coast will play at the Little League World Series, which begins Wednesday in Williamsport. The game will be livestreamed on ESPN and will be broadcast on a big screen for all in attendance at Burns Park Friday night. Friday night marks the first game of the series for Massapequa Coast – keep an eye on the Supervisor Saladino’s Facebook page for information on future World Series games.
