CADETS BASEBALL CLUB ORGANIZED IN 1944
THE CADETS HAVE FIELDED SANDLOT BASEBALL TEAM FOR BOYS RANGING IN AGE FROM EIGHT TO EIGHTEEN. THE ORGANIZATION'S MOTTO IS " GOOD CITIZENS TOMORROW THROUGH CLEAN SPORTS TODAY. " THIS PAST YEAR, WE CELEBRATED THE 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CADETS BASEBALL CLUB. WE ARE THE OLDEST SANDLOT BASEBALL ORGANIZATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.


OUR ORGANIZATION CURRENTLY HAS ELEVEN TEAMS COMPRISED OF YOUNG MEN FROM BROOKLYN, QUEENS AND STATEN ISLAND. EACH OF THE TEAMS COMPETES IN THE PRESTIGIOUS NEW YORK CITY BASEBALL FEDERATION. OUR HOME GAMES ARE PLAYED AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS ACROSS THE CITY OF NEW YORK. OVER THE YEARS, THE CADETS HAVE GRADUATED MANY YOUNG MEN WHO HAVE GONE ON TO ACHIEVE REMARKABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN BASEBALL, EDUCATION AND THE BUSINESS WORLD. MOST NOTABLY, THE MANAGER OF THE NEW YORK YANKEES. JOE TORRE, PLAYED FOR THE CADETS FROM 1955 THROUGH 1959. STATEN ISLAND RESIDENT MATT GALANTE, CURRENTLY A FRONT OFFICE EXECUTIVE WITH THE HOUSTON ASTROS, PLAYED FOR THE CADETS FROM 1956 THROUGH 1963. MANY OTHER CADET GRADUATES HAVE GONE ON TO ACHIEVE GREAT SUCCESS AS ATTORNEYS, DOCTORS, CPA'S, EDUCATORS AND THE LIKE.


THE CHAIRPERSON OF THE CADETS BASEBALL CLUB IS JIM MCELROY. MR. MCELROY HAS BEEN DEDICATED TO THE SANDLOT BASEBALL IN NEW YORK CITY FOR MORE THEN 50 YEARS, A RECORD THAT CLEARLY DEMONSTRATES EXTRAORDINARY COMMITMENT AND DEDICATION TO THE YOUTH OF NEW YORK CITY. DURING THE LION'S SHARE OF HIS TENURE AT THE HELM OF THE CADETS, MR.MCELROY HAS PERFORMED HIS SERVICES WITHOUT A CHILD OR FAMILY MEMBER ACTIVELY PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAM.


IN 1993, MR.MCELROY WAS SELECTED AS THE NATIONAL AMATEUR COACH OF THE YEAR BY THE USA BASEBALL ORGANIZATION AND IN 1995 RECEIVED THE STEVE LEMBO AMATEUR BASEBALL SERVICE AWARD TO THE YOUTH OF NEW YORK CITY FROM THE NEW YORK HOT STOVE LEAGUE.
