Members of the Long Island Ducks Street Team included eight-time Best Long Island Mascot, QuackerJack, and Ducks all-time leading hitter, Lew Ford. Each of the children received a special Valentine’s Day card from the lovable mascot and a Ducks team photo signed by QJ and Lew. Kids and their parents also had the chance to pose for photos with the pair during the visits.

The visits marked the second time in two months that members of the Ducks handed out gifts to children in local hospitals. At the end of December, QuackerJack and Lew stopped by to give out presents donated by Ducks fans during the team’s Holiday Toy Drive. CLICK HERE for the full story from those visits.
