July 16, 2013 - Huntington, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Steve Stern (D-Huntington) 16th LD was presented with the New York Mets “Spirit Award” at Half Hollow Hills Little League Day at Citi Field. In a pre-game ceremony, Legislator Stern was honored for his commitment to youth sports in our community. In addition to supporting a variety of sporting activities and Little Leagues throughout the 16th Legislative District, including North Babylon, Deer Park and the Tri-Community Little League, Legislator Stern is a Little League Coach, and has worked with hundreds of children in our community, encouraging team work, athleticism and cooperation.
“As a life-long Mets fan, receiving this award from the New York Mets organization is especially exciting,” Legislator Stern said. “But it is working with the children in our community and helping foster skills that will help them throughout their lives that is the greatest reward. I thank the New York Mets and the Half Hollow Hills Little League for this special award.”
