STONY BROOK: The story book Stony Brook Seawolves baseball team fell to perennial NCAA powerhouse Florida State in Omaha on Sunday, ending their College World Series championship run. The 2012 season was the most successful in Stony Brook baseball history, as they won a program recordsetting 52 wins. Stony Brook burst onto the national scene by defeating Miami, Missouri State and Central Florida in NCAA Regional play, and they punched their first-ever trip to the College World Series with a win over Louisiana State University in the NCAA Super Regionals. On Tuesday, the New York Mets invited the Seawolves to Queens to participate in batting practice and to meet members of the team prior to their game against the Baltimore Orioles. Stony Brook head coach Matt Senk, the 2012 NCBWA National Head Coach of the Year, threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Play ball!

SOUTHAMPTON: The former Rogers Memorial Library building on 11 Jobs Lane in Southampton, which was purchased about 12 years ago by the Parrish Art Museum and has since served as the home of the Parrish’s Carroll Petrie Center for Education, has been sold for $2.875 million. The new owner, Ajax Holdings LLC, apparently plans to restore the building, which could eventually turn into retail space with offices on the upper level. The Parrish purchased the space from the library with the $3 million donated by board member Carroll Petrie, and they envisioned combining the building with their space at 25 Jobs Lane to create a larger, state of the art facility in the village. When that proposal fell through, the Parrish decided to build at the Water Mill location. They plan to move to the Montauk Highway building this fall and have until the end of the year to vacate the Jobs Lane space. The deal reportedly closed on April 30, and it was recorded on May 15. Last week, Southampton Village officials gave the Founders Committee the go-ahead to pursue building a portable recreational pavilion at the Parrish’s 25 Jobs Lane space. The structure could be ready for concerts, movies and theatre as early as next summer.
Unique Funding Brings Bike Shop to Sag Harbor
SAG HARBOR: The Sag Harbor Cycle Company opened its doors on June 8 to great fanfare—the efforts of a number of Sag Harbor residents and avid cyclists had finally come to fruition. The idea to open the shop came as cycling enthuiasts sought to keep the village’s status as a bike mecca alive, despite the closing of BikeHampton in Sag Harbor a few months ago. In a unique financial effort, 20 to 25 investors pooled their money together to start the new shop at 34 Bay Street. The effort has clearly been fueled by strong community support, and Sag Harbor Cycle looks to become a prominent East End cycling hub.

HAMPTONS: The East End had a mild winter, comparatively speaking, but the hot summer weather didn’t come any faster because of it. With the summer solstice on June 20, it seems that the beach weather has arrived. Temperatures are expected to be in the 80s this week, and Thursday looks to be the warmest of the bunch. Time to head to the beach, hang out in the pool, run through the sprinkler and enjoy being outdoors, responsibly, of course. Stay cool, Hamptonites.

Comprised of nine buildings totaling 440,000 square feet, the park will be able to accommodate the needs of large and small businesses, and it will also feature a full service hotel and a daycare center. Available space will range from 2,000 square feet up to 100,000 square feet.
