“Field of Heroes” Youth Baseball Clinic Sunday, August 21, 2022
Daniel J. Flynn Memorial Park Old Commack Rd
New York State Senator, Mario R. Mattera, and Town of Smithtown Supervisor, Ed Wehrheim, invite you and your family to help us honor our community heroes with a FREE baseball clinic for male and female youths, aged 6-18, run by local school coaches and 10 former Major League Baseball players from the Mets, Yankees, Cubs, Red Sox, Tigers, Dodgers, Pirates, Blue Jays, and Phillies.
At the event, we will celebrate all our American heroes on a field named in honor of Daniel J. Flynn, a member of the 725th Military Police Battalion, C Company who was killed in action during the Vietnam War. We will also honor our Smithtown-based “Hero’s 4 Our Heroes” foundation for all the charitable work they’ve done to show their appreciation to the men and women who keep us safe. It is our hope that our youths will be inspired by their sacrifice, commitment and duty, and that their interaction with the MLB players and coaches will enhance their potential both on and off the field.
Hero’s 4 Our Heroes
The day after 9/11 the Panico’s wanted to do something to aid our rescue workers. They loaded up a mobile catering truck full of food from their market in Smithtown and drove to Ground Zero. They cooked for ten straight days at the World Trade Center site and continued to provide free meals to first responders and frontline workers for the next 21 years. Every September 11th, Hero’s 4 Our Heroes prepares and gives away over 3,000 heroes to firefighters, policemen and veterans. During the holidays, Hero’s 4 Our Heroes distributes turkey dinners on Thanksgiving and ham or turkey dinners for Christmas at the VA Medical Center. Since September 11th, 2001, the Panico’s have served as an inspiration to the people of New York by serving thousands of complimentary meals to frontline workers at hospitals, nursing homes, veterans facilities and dozens of other entities, in honor of the thousands of heroes who serve us every day.
