Dugout of Dreams in Sayville

  • Sayville’s Dugout of Dreams


    It was a dream come true for Coach Ryan Cox and the Sayville Baseball team—dugouts to house home and visiting teams; but, it took more than dreaming to make it happen. Thanks to the industry of Mr. Cox, the dedication of his team players and their families, and the generosity of many who had a hand in the collaboration, The Golden Flashes have Dugouts this season. During a modest Dugout Recognition Ceremony, Coach Ryan Cox acknowledged the contributors (see list below) with sincerest humility and genuine regard for the commitment that built the dugout of dreams. Athletic Director Charlie Delargy added high words of praise for Coach Cox who instills new vigor each year as Coach. After retired Baseball Coach Barry Fitzpatrick threw the first ball, the Golden Flashes defeated Hampton Bays Baymen 4:0.
