“New York Finest (NYPD) is delighted to return to Clover Stadium for our annual Heroes Baseball Classic against FDNY,” said Jose Vasquez, President of the New York Finest Baseball Club. “We really appreciate the support and hospitality that the NY Boulders give us in hosting this event.”
FDNY Finest Team President and Head Coach Scott Miller echoed those sentiments. “FDNY Baseball is excited to return to Clover Stadium to play the NYPD for what is now the fourth consecutive year (wow)! We always look forward to this game because it usually marks the end of our summer season and what better way to close out the summer then a stadium game in front of our family, friends and fans.
