The Long Island Athletics Program is proud to announce that Coach Musmacker has received the 2015 Eric Reistetter Manager of the Year Award. This award is presented to a manager who participates in the National Junior Baseball League, cares about his players' personal growth and is dedicated to teaching the game of baseball.
This prestigious manager award is named in memory of Eric Reistetter, a Western Suffolk umpire and a popular manager in the NJBL. In the Spring of 2004, Eric began his coaching tenure in the NJBL where he managed the LI Baymen Lightning team. He always thought about others before himself and lived his life on and off the field role modeling that philosophy. Eric coached his Baymen team until his untimely death in February 2007.
Eric lost his life in a tragic swimming accident while vacationing with his family on the Island of Anguilla.
This award could not have been achieved without the support of the other coaches, the parents and the hard work of the players...this award signifies success for everyone.
