Floral Park Memorial High School’s varsity baseball team played their first game on the newly renovated Alva T. Stanforth field against Lynbrook High School on April 14. Prior to the game’s start, Floral Park Athletic Director James Jackman led an opening ceremony to mark the first use of the field since it was renovated thanks to a bond referendum passed by the community last year.
“It looks phenomenal. I’m so happy to be out here even on an overcast day to see the results of everyone’s hard labor,” School Board President David Fowler said. “The bond project is off to a great start and this is just the first phase of a very successful building projects in the district.”
Unfortunately, the game ended with a loss for the Knights. The team was shut out by Lynbrook, 4-0.
