As many in the NYO community know, we lost Moises Dominguez last year. Moe started playing with the Christopher League at about the age of 5 in the early 2000’s and played with us for every season for the remainder of his life – including every Fall Ball Season from its inception at NYO. Moe started his baseball career with a unique style, mostly dressed in his favorite super hero costume of the week. Soon, his brother and sister (Sean and Theresa) became a part of our team in support of Moe and started a sibling movement that continues today in the Christopher League. Over the years his baseball acumen progressed and Moe became one of our most dependable and fun players. Moe developed great relationships with his Buddies, often regaling them with his reviews of horror movies.
Like the super heroes Moe adored, Moe and his family became heroes by donating his organs so many others could live. I have attached a very moving tribute that Piedmont Healthcare posted of Moe’s Honor Walk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKNE2OA4vk0
In tribute to Moe’s life and to all Moe has given to the NYO community, we are renaming our Fall Ball Program as the Moises Dominguez Fall Ball League. From this point forward, Fall Ball is Moe Ball!
Our Moe Ball Season will start on September 14 and runs each Saturday morning through October 26 from 9:00 until 10:30 at the Wilkens Bronco Field. All in the NYO community are invited to join us as Buddies for any game. We ask that the Buddies to be 10 and older (in the Fall, we have an older crew as the Oglethorpe baseball teams helps for most games). We also encourage teams to help as a group.
