WPCNR LETTER TICKER. November 12, 2022:

My sincerest thanks to Commissioner Kathleen O’ Connor, First Deputy Commissioner Peter Tartaglia, Deputy Commissioner Neil Squillante, Recreation Supervisor Kevin Cook and the entire Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department team for the most special award I received on behalf of the Westchester Sports Hall-of-Fame in recognition of the almost two decades I served as Master-of-Ceremonies for the Hall’s annual induction ceremonies.

It was a thrill to be honored along and share the stage with the Class of 2022 at the historic Glen Island Harbor Club in New Rochelle on Thursday, November 10th. The Hall welcomed a most unique class into Westchester County sports immortality:

Sprain Lake Golf Course of Yonkers legendary Pro Tom Avezzano, iconic Lakeland High School of Shrub Oak and Syracuse University lacrosse star Ric Beardsley, renowned Journal News and lohud.com Photojournalist Frank Becerra Jr., who joins his father, the incomparable Frank Becerra Sr. in the Hall, along with fabled White Plains High School two-way lineman, Valhalla High School state champion football coach and noted boxing trainer Ron Berlingo.

The festivities were hosted by our new Master-of-Ceremonies at the Hall, LocaLive Networks Founder and Vice President of Digital Content Kevin Devaney, Jr.

Again congratulations to my fellow honorees, the Class of 2022. Having witnessed so much sports history around Westchester the past 35 years — since 1987, wow! — I’m looking forward to being on hand for so much more that’s still to come.
