QuackerJack Promotes Ducks Game at Islip’s Schools


Long Island Ducks baseball mascot QuackerJack recently visited Islip, popping in to the high school, middle school, and Commack Road and Sherwood elementary schools to promote a May 14 Ducks game. Tickets purchased for the game will benefit the district’s academically gifted EXCEL program.

“My thanks to everyone for welcoming QuackerJack to Islip with such warmth and kindness,” said EXCEL coordinator Julia Johnson.

Tickets are $14 and available in advance, paid to Islip MS Excel and submitted to Julia Johnson's attention at the middle school. Anyone wishing to attend and support Islip can arrive by 5 p.m. to participate before the game in a group photo on the field in front of the Ducks dugout.
