Under the hot summer sun on July 13, Assemblyman Mike Miller, Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato and Queens Parks Commissioner Michael Dockett threw out the first pitch at the 8th annual American Softball League’s All-Star Game.
The game took place at Vito Locascio Field in Ozone Park.
The league teaches players who have developmental challenges how to play softball. They practice three times a week.
“American Softball League provides a fun and great learning environment for adults with disabilities to learn the game,” Miller says. “I look forward to throwing the first pitch again and seeing the continued progress the players have made.”
