It’s time for the next edition of 18 Sports Commentary.
On this edition, we discuss a golden era of local athletes who are living professional sports dreams. Elmira’s Johnny Beecher wad drafted by the Boston Bruins in the first round of the NHL Draft on Friday. Just weeks earlier, Horseheads standout Mikey Limoncelli was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the sixth round of the MLB Draft.
And, already this month, Elmira native Mike Weaver signed with the National Arena League (NAL) to kick for a professional football team.
18 Sports Commentary dives into their respective journeys and how this time will always be remembered in the Twin Tiers. Remembered for their hard work, grit, and will to be the very best in the sport they play.
