A well-attended event, alumni came together to reminisce with their Mesivta friends and Rabbeim for good fun, good food and good times. Rosh HaYeshiva Rabbi Yaffe threw the first game ball to open the competition, during which 4 teams of alumni, joined by some of the current Varsity and JV softball team players, played head-to-head preliminary games, followed by a championship game. Although games were well-played by all teams throughout the day, a big congratulations to Team Chilzuch for winning the Tournament!
A Long Throw Competition and a Homerun Derby rounded out a successful event. Congratulations to Avi Weinberg (2011) on winning the Long Throw Competition and Doniel Pearlman (2008) on winning the Homerun Derby. Attendees were treated to an all-day barbecue catered by Graze, and awesome swag.
“It’s events like these that help maintain the connection between the boys themselves and to the Yeshiva,” commented Rabbi Yossi Bennett, S’gan Menahel, “A big yasher ko’ach to our Director of Development, Rabbi Josh Zern, and Mr. Zack Kessler, our Alumni Liaison, and their entire team for organizing this beautiful event.”
A special thank you to the Lawrence School District staff, who went out of their way to make the ballfields available for this event, and to the events many sponsors.
The yeshiva and its alumni look forward to the 2nd annual MAY Game Day rematch!
