Local Weekend Recap

What a weekend of baseball it was in Melville!

The City of Melville and the Melville Millionaires paid tribute to one of their own over the weekend as they honored Melville product and former Major Leaguer Terry Puhl in a variety of ways.

First off they named the street that enters into Melville Regional Park as "Terry Puhl Drive" as well as placing a big Terry Puhl #21 Houston Astros banner on the right field fence and they held a ceremony ahead of the Mils' game on Saturday against the visiting Regina Red Sox.
