POMONA, NY – New York Boulders Baseball Outfielder Jack Sundberg named this year’s recipient of the Johnny Thompson Unsung Hero Award.

John Thompson, who has Cerebal Palsy, is a resident of Nanuet and a true inspiration. He embodies the never quit attitude. He is the Disabilities Liaison Officer for the NY Boulders and the play-by-play announcer for the Rockland Community College Men’s & Women’s Basketball Team.

Thompson is a rising star in sports journalism, interviewing some of the biggest names in New York sports.

Sundberg has quietly put together an outstanding season on his way to the Thompson Award. He has given the Boulders’ solid defensive play in left field, while, at bat, has maintained a batting average hovering around the .300 mark throughout the year and, through the Labor Day game versus Tri-City, is tied for the Boulders’ single season stolen base mark of 47 set by Junior Arrojo in 2016.
