Senator John Flanagan (2nd Senate District) recently had the privilege of joining the Long Island Ducks to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the team’s recent victory over the Lancaster Barnstormers at Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip.  Senator Flanagan delivered the pitch to former New York Met Bud Harrelson, part-owner of the Ducks and the current bench coach.

"This team has truly become a part of Long Island, and Mr. Harrelson and the entire organization should be proud of what they have created for our community.  It is always a pleasure to come join the fun they provide at the ballpark and I wish them success in their effort to repeat as Atlantic League Champions,” stated Senator Flanagan.
