Team President/GM and QuackerJack read story, sign autographs for students
(Sayville, N.Y., Jan. 27, 2017) – On Friday, the Long Island Ducks paid a special visit to Cherry Avenue Elementary School in Sayville. Team President/GM Michael Pfaff read the book "Penguin & Pinecone: A Friendship Story" to students, while QuackerJack signed autographs for the kids.
The main theme of the story emphasizes that no matter where you are or how far you go, as long as you love, friendship will grow. The book is one of Pfaff’s favorites and reminds him of his wonderful friendship with QuackerJack. Each of the students received a high five from the lovable mascot when he arrived and also got to take home some special gifts: an autographed baseball card of QJ and a 2016 Ducks Team Photo.
During the visit, the class was also treated to delicious cookies to make the visit even sweeter. Finally, QuackerJack took a trip around the school to dish out some high fives to other students in the hallways and even stopped by the gym class for a special visit.
The Long Island Ducks are members of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and play their home games at Bethpage Ballpark. For further information, call (631) 940-DUCK or visit www.liducks.com.
