The inaugural Second Battalion One-Pitch Softball Tournament was held on August 19, 2023, at Baldwin Park in Baldwin. Several departments from within Nassau County’s Second Battalion, as well as EGP Gastropub, had teams in the event. Proceeds from the tournament benefitted Cooper Graham – son of Oceanside Terrace Hose 3 ex-Captain Michael Graham. At five months old Cooper was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma and has spent many days in and out of hospitals battling this cancer. The tournament’s opening ceremony began shortly after 0900 with Cooper’s sister Rylie throwing out the first pitch.
