The district recently dedicated their baseball field in honor of community resident and Class of 1947 Babylon High School graduate Joe DeLucca due to his multiple accomplishments, both on and off the field.

Throughout the beautiful ceremony surrounding the baseball field, dozens of family, friends, athletes and district staff and administrators expressed their words of thanks and gratitude in honor of Mr. DeLucca and all that he has done for the district. Additionally, Babylon Town Mayor Ralph Scordino was on hand to personally congratulate Mr. DeLucca for his lifelong list of achievements.

Mr. DeLucca has had a long and prosperous career, serving multiple roles in the Babylon School District including former athletic director, teacher and coach of both the baseball and football teams. He was also a baseball scout, signing prominent athletes such as Manny Ramirez, Charles Nagy and Jeff Schaefer.

"Mr. DeLucca is a Babylon legend, and a true champion of the Babylon School District and the Babylon Athletic program in general,” said Superintendent of Schools Linda Rozzi. “He has been an instrumental force as a teacher and coach, as well as highly successful as a major league baseball scout. Our district could not have thought of a better person to honor. It was truly a very touching celebration honoring Joe; we are so grateful that many of his friends and family members were able to join us as we all celebrated this very memorable occasion with him."
