All-Star Game for Seniors
The Town will host the first “All-Star Game” for the members of the Long Island Senior Softball Association’s (LISSA) Division 5 at John J. Burns Town Park in Massapequa on Monday
The game, scheduled or 6:15 p.m., will square off two 15-member teams, who average at 75 years of age and feature the top players from Division 5 teams. Admission to the game is free.
“The Long Island Senior Softball Association Division 5 is comprised of a truly remarkable group of people,” said Councilwoman Rebecca Alesia, of Plainview. “What spectators often don’t realize is that many of these players have undergone some sort of life-altering medical procedure, whether it be a joint-replacement or cardiac procedure, at some point in their lifetime.”
For those interested in more information about LISSA, and especially for those looking to register and participate in future games for the league, contact Joe Friedman, Commissioner of LISSA, at (516) 766-0883 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
