Mike Sable is a very modest attending physician who teaches residents part time at Queens Hospital Center in Jamaica, New York and is careful not to aim the spotlight his way. “I don’t want to take anything away from those on the front line because I am working there on a limited basis. I’m proud of my colleagues who have worked countless hours in harms way to help as much as possible. Obviously , this is a terrible time and these people have over extended to really make a profound difference.”
Mike has been a member of the Long Island MSBL for the past 24 seasons and was nice enough to share a few MSBL details with us, so we will let him tell it in his own words:
“I am 52 years old and presently play midweek with Jack Tompson’s Long Island Mariners, where I have played since 1997. We started in the 25 and over division and are now in the 45’s. I also play with Tom Broderick’s 35 and over Nassau Yankees. And I play Sundays with Steve Kunken and the 45-over Dix Hills Dodgers.
I’ve also played in dozens of MSBL tournaments, including about 15 years in Arizona at the World Series, 10 or so in Florida at the Fall Classic and three in Puerto Rico. I’m one of the many addicts they have in this league and as long as I feel I’m competitive, I’ll keep playing.
My positions mainly are shortstop and catcher but these days, as long as I’m on the field and in the game, it doesn’t matter so much where I am. I’m a local guy who grew up in Brooklyn, went to college at NYU and medical school at Stony Brook. I love Long Island and presently live in Bay Shore.”
Be safe and well, everyone!
