Kropp Gets Special Induction at Bethpage Ballpark

We finally finished the 2019 Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame induction process and Bill Kropp finally got his moment.

After falling ill during the 2019 ceremony, legendary volleyball coach Bill Kropp was unable to formally be inducted. That changed on Thursday night when he got a special induction on the field at Bethpage Ballpark, the home of the Long Island Ducks.

Kropp was presented his plaque by Hall of Fame Executive Director, Chris Vaccaro, while Ducks fans watched his highlight reel. He also threw out the first pitchand spoke with Ducks Manager and former Met great Wally Backman.

Special thanks to Ducks owner and Suffolk Sports Hall of Famer Frank Boulton for making it happen!
