The Tri Hamlet Sports Club Inc. is a local sports organization located in the heart of Mastic Beach, NY, founded in 2013, with approximately 170 members in its programs last year. Tri Hamlet Sports Club has been created to offer the youth of the Tri-Hamlet community the opportunity to play baseball in an environment that provides a fun and safe place to play, while learning the game of baseball. The organization has sponsored many children in the program. In the past six years, the club has had continuous growth of members. The club currently has a nine-member board.
When Tri Hamlet Sports Club was first founded, it played its games at William Floyd Elementary School.
Grateful for having a place to play, the club decided to raise funds for a new Woodrow R. Hawkins Memorial Field sign and present it to the school. The club has since built team benches for several fields in the district.
The following year, Tri Hamlet Sports Club was granted a permit to play its games at the Robert E. Miller fields located on Washington Avenue in Mastic Beach.
Since then, the club has worked with Brookhaven Town Councilman Dan Panico and Brookhaven’s parks commissioner Ed Morris to create a majestic place to play.
They took what once was a pocket park sandlot and turned it into one of the nicest parks in the Town of Brookhaven. The facilities currently have three baseball fields, one of which has lights, and a snack shack, which is open during the games. The funds raised at the snack shack helped field development at the park and to lower the cost of registration. This past summer, the club was able to charge just $35 per returning player. They also now have a storage shed to house field maintenance equipment and a garage. They have installed security cameras around the park as well as lights to help ensure the safety of the children that visit the park daily to play.
