On Tuesday, May 2, 2023, Mayor Alberto Santos, Town Council Members Eileen Eckel and Peter Santana, Recreation Commission Chairperson Lyla De Castro Lawdanski and Commissioner Juan Irizarry attended opening day ceremonies for the Kearny Softball Program at the Gunnel Oval Sports Complex. This year, 144 children registered for participation in the softball program which is now in its 58th year as a Town of Kearny Recreation program. Local businesses and organizations are sponsoring 12 teams for children ages 4 through 12 and grades Pre-K through 8th. Parents and players joined Mayor Santos, volunteer coaches and program coordinators to kick off the softball season. The Town of Kearny extends its gratitude to Recreation Director Ralph Cattafi, Greg and Colleen Natosi, and all the volunteers and local business sponsors for their contributions and support of the Town’s recreation programs.
