It's Little League season, and our 2018 team is looking primed and ready for a fun year in Bayside, Queens. This is my third year sponsoring a team, and the kids are looking quite spiffy decked out in their orange and blue.
Back in the day, I used to love checking out plaques hanging up at my local pizzerias with the photos of their teams. When the opportunity came up in 2016 to rep one of my own, I had to jump at it.
Ends up this year we have a little extra connection to the team. Jonathan Reid, who is a season ticket holder with The 7 Line Army, is coaching our squad. His son Jonathan Jr. is on the team, along with 13 other boys and girls from the neighborhood.
We've talked about it a few times, but haven't had the chance to organize a day where we encourage The 7 Line Army to go cheer for our squad. We should try to do that this year. All of their games are played on Sundays at Crocheron Park in Bayside.
Tailgate with us on Saturday September 16th at Citi Field! Kick the night off with us in the Marina Lot! The Mets take on the Reds at 7:10pm so we expect fans to start showing up around 3pm. If you can't swing that early, just get there when ya get there.
