As I have said recently on this site … the NYESL has been extending their hand to me (Miami) for over 25 years.  So why would Labor Day 2009 be any different? You asked me to book the Thunderbird Beach Resort. I blocked “30” rooms … Well, as of this morning (7/21/09) Thanks in great part to “my” friends from the NYESL … “34” rooms have been booked. 95% booked by the NYESL. As if that wasn’t enough 7 of your leagues 9 teams are coming to Miami. It’s very tough for this old guy to retire when you show him that much of love. Thank You and God Bless You!

The Hurricanes and I look forward to being your host Labor Day Weekend. Before we play 1 inning you have already made this event a success. Thank You so much for the love and the support. Because of you … The NYESL … this will truly be a World Series of Stickball in Miami.

We will also enjoy the Puerto Rico Tainos “final” traveling team. You graced us with your presence 10 years ago (1999) on this very street … Stickball Blvd. South. We look forward to seeing our old Friends from La Isla del Encanto. Newly crowned FSL champs Skybounce will be in the house. FSL division champs The Chargers of Tampa will be present. As will be the Tampa Lightnings and Deltona Rockets. What Florida tournament would be complete without Ruben, Danny, GoGo and the MIAMI HEAT Stickball Team? And of course your host and 3 time (3PEAT) Florida Stickball Champs … THE HURRICANES !!!

Keep that phone ringing … there are more rooms left. For more info go to WWW.FLORIDA-STICKBALL.COM <>  and click on LABOR DAY 2009.
