New York Yankees Honor the Morris High School FIRST Robotics team

In my in box this morning...
Dear Friends of 2Train Robotics,

The NY Yankees will honor the Morris High School FIRST Robotics team on Friday May 3rd at 6:45pm on the field during a pregame ceremony prior to the 7:05pm ball game against the Minnesota Twins. This will be the 18th year in a row that the team has been honored on the field at Yankee Stadium. Of course, this year is very special as we and Yankees celebrate the team's 20th Anniversary.

For 2Train, this game will be our first Old-Timers Day with students returning to attend the 20th Anniversary Luncheon the following day. Members representing every year (1999-2019) will attend the celebration.

This will be our 11th consecutive year on the field at the new Stadium (2009-2019)
In the old Yankee Stadium, the team was honored for seven consecutive years (2002-2008)

During this year's pregame ceremony the stadium's public address announcer will share with the crowd that 2Train Robotics won the Central NY FIRST Robotics Regional Competition in Utica NY last month. During that competition, Demetrius Weathers, a junior, was chosen as a Dean's List Finalist.

In April at the New York City FIRST Robotics Competition, 2Train reached the Quarterfinals in the team's 19th consecutive year participating in the New York City competition. The robotics team also received the Autonomous Award: Sponsored by Ford.

On a personal note I am proud to join 2Train mentors Bob Stark (2011), Reuben Bridges (2015), and Paul Lucien (2017) as the NYC 2019 Woodie Flowers Finalist Award. The award is presented to one adult Mentor at each regional competition, "who best leads, inspires, teaches and empowers their team using excellent communication skills."

Warm regards,

2Train Robotics | 166th Street and Boston Road, Bronx, NY 10456
