Team to honor veterans and active military members in 2015

The three-time Atlantic League champion Long Island Ducks have teamed up this season with the Suffolk County Office of Veteran Affairs and New York Community Bank to present a brand new “Heroes of the Game” program. At Ducks home games, the team will publicly recognize local veterans and active duty service men and women.

“We are proud to honor those who have fought, and continue to fight, to protect our freedom every day,” says Ducks President/GM Michael Pfaff. “Thanks to NYCB and Suffolk County, we will be able to create a special memory for the friends and families of each hero we recognize, as well as for each and every Ducks fan at the ballpark.”

Two “Heroes of the Game” will be selected for each 2015 home game at Bethpage Ballpark. Each will be honored during a live, in-game tribute for their selfless and courageous service to our country. In addition, each hero will receive ten complimentary tickets to the game at which they will be honored, so that they may bring their family and friends along with them.

“We must do all we can to thank, honor and serve our veterans,” says Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone. “‘Heroes of the Night’ presents an awesome opportunity to highlight our Suffolk County veterans during one of America’s favorite pastimes.”

Veterans and active duty personnel can register to be recognized as one of the “Heroes of the Game” by calling (631) 853-5020 or by sending an e-mail to Suffolk County is home to 1.5 million people and boasts the largest veteran population in all of New York State.
