Support for A friend with pancreatitis

Hello everyone. I have a very good friend, named Celeste who suffers from pancreatitis and she is in desperate need of assistance. As you may know, pancreatitis is a deadly illness that affects thousands of people each year. 

Celeste is having trouble eating right, due to the illness and not being able to afford the correct medications (enzyme meds, pain relief meds) and not able to pay the ever high cost of medical bills (doctor visits, hospital visits, getting transportation to and from medical visits). She is also having trouble with food bills. Being on a much different diet then the average person, she can only eat certain foods due to the illness. 

This is all affecting her mentally as well due to the stress. I am there as much as possible, driving often down the East coast to assist her. While you don’t have to take the drive, maybe you can take the time to donate a few dollars when you can! This would be greatly appreciated by Celeste.

Thank you all for your time! Please pass on this information to assist someone in need. Remember, Spring time is a time of Life and Celebration! Please help Celeste!

Four Notable Major League Players in The Atlantic League of Professional Ball Players by jdelpriore1

By Jerry Del Priore As I previously noted in a past article, the independent Atlantic League of Professional Baseball (ALPB) is a great place for players who are seeking a crack at an affiliated MLB organization. Sometimes, however, ex-major leaguers find themselves in the Atlantic League, looking to play their way back to “The Show.” […]

2018 Long Island Ducks Season

The Long Island Ducks are about one month away from opening the season against the South Maryland Blue Crabs, in Waldorf, Maryland.

Recent new faces, of major league caliber have recently signed with The Long Island Ducks. The two recent signing are   right-handed pitcher Vinnie Pestano (223 relief appearances with the Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Angels from 2010 to 2015) and left-hander Wander Perez (Chicago White Sox and Philadelphia Phillies organizations). Other signings were outfielder Tyler Holt (Cleveland Indians and Cincinnati Reds 2014-16)and catcher Wilkin Castillo (parts of two seasons in the Majors with the Reds 2008-09).

There were other signings earlier in the year, outfielder Daniel Fields (2017 in the Atlantic League with the Bridgeport Bluefish, first six seasons of his professional career in the Detroit Tigers organization, 118 games with the Double-A Erie SeaWolves. He later split time with the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers organizations in 2016, reaching the Triple-A level with both. Fields was originally drafted by the Tigers in the sixth round of the 2009 amateur draft), right-handed pitcher Jair Jurrjens (eight seasons at the Major League level, including five with the Atlanta Braves (2008-12) and one each with the Detroit Tigers (2007), Baltimore Orioles (2013) and Colorado Rockies 2014), infielder Jordany Valdespin (two seasons with the New York Mets 2012-13 and two with the Miami Marlins 2014-15, 2017 season with Olmecas de Tabasco and Leones de Yucatan in the Mexican League)

This was in addition to Matt March, Rob Rogers, Dennis O’Grady and Lew Ford to name a few of the Ducks “steady regulars”.  It appears as of now that the Ducks are getting stronger with the new signings, as we get closer to the start of the new season. The Somerset Patriots and York Revolution will be two teams to contend with this year, as the Ducks did last year.

This year will also be special because the Long Island Ducks are hosting the 2018 All-Star Game on July 11, 2018 at 6:35p.m. It should add to what will be an exciting year of baseball.DSC_7959.JPG(QuackerJack won his eighth consecutive Mascot of The Year in The Long Island Press’ Best Of Long Island Award)

2018 Atlantic League All-Star Game

Despite the Winter Warlock’s and Mother Nature’s snow filled temper tantrum, I managed to warm myself up and have something wonderful to look forward to in July. The Long Island Ducks are hosting the 2018 All-Star game! I went to Bethpage Ball Park on Friday night and purchased two tickets for the event! What is even better is that I bought one of the tickets for my brother for his birthday, which is in July. Hoorah Ducks!!20180323_18341920180324_193101
