The Massapequa Police Activity League welcomed All-Star Yankees pitcher Nestor Cortes to their baseball clinic. Cortes and the young players spent Thursday morning going over drills and working on their pitching arms. “I’ve been playing baseball since I was 4 years old, so this brings back a lot of memories for me,” Cortes says. The whole town of Massapequa has rallied behind their hometown team as they are 200 miles away in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. “People care about where we are from and care about our hometown and they are rooting for us because it’s where they used to grow up as a kid,” says Liam St. George.
 
The Massapequa Coast Little League team needs all that support as they prepare for their game in the Little League World Series against Hawaii. Cortes, who knows about big games, had some advice for the boys. “I would tell them to have fun, enjoy the moment because 10-15 years down the road they’re always going to remember these moments and that I think that’s special for them,” Cortes says.
