Victor Feld is a lifelong Nassau County resident whose love of baseball began in his childhood. He has been involved in Sandlot baseball as a player, parent, coach, administrator, mentor and friend for 68 years. Since his retirement from his day job he has become even more committed to The Greater New York Sandlot Athletic Alliance (GNYSAA), where he has been a member for 40 years and whose motto for 80 years is to serve New York City Kids through baseball.

Vic started his adult baseball life as a parent and coach at Dwarf-Giraffe Athletic League (DG) in Whitestone Queens. He then went on to coach in the Long Island Connie Mack League and went to three regionals. There he also met Ray Church who was a mentor and friend and brought him into the GNYSAA family. His coaching career has been one that has taken him all over the country and where he has had success at many levels. He has been involved with Division 1 and Division 2 College Programs and has been both a High School and College Recruiter.

Since 2005, he has been President of the GNYSAA where he has worked diligently to grow the breadth and reputation of the organization. His work along with that of the GNYSAA Board (a board with 275 years of sandlot baseball experience) has grown the organization from a New York City Metropolitan Area program to one with a national reputation. The GNYSAA has built relationships with all professional, college, high school and sandlot levels which include Major League Baseball and USA Baseball. These relationships have helped the GNYSAA with its most important jobs of giving kids the opportunity to play, continuing their educations and getting opportunities to play and participate at the high school and college levels. Vic has affected the lives of thousands of players in a positive way and continues to do so today.

Vic and his wife Stephanie have three children, Anthony, Laurie and Charles and five loving grandchildren. The only thing that is more important to Vic than baseball is his family and he lives for both.

Dr. Cesar Presbott and Dr. Angelica Presbott Along With The Cesar Presbott Foundation Dedicate a Page on their Website In Memory of New York Yankee Scout Kelly Rodman

Dr. Cesar Presbott and Dr. Angelica Presbott along with the Cesar Presbott Foundation dedicated a page of their website in memory of New York Yankee Scout Kelly Rodman, a pioneer in female scouting and one of only 3 female scouts in Major League Baseball. Kelly was not only a part of the New York Yankee Scouts family, she was a dear friend to both Dr. Cesar Presbott and Dr. Angelica Presbottt. Kelly Rodman always had time to volunteer to help those in need of support whether it was at the Turkey Dinner Giveaway or a Community Baseball Workout, she was always there helping and showing her support. Kelly always volunteered her time and along with the rest of the wonderful volunteers who helped give their time to help those people who needed it the most. Kelly showed how much it meant to her to help and participate and this showed how much she cared and how big her heart is. Dr. Cesar Presbott and Dr. Angelica and the Cesarpresbottfoundation are eternally grateful for her hard work, support and everything else she did to help! 

Kelly was an inspiration and hero to all, especially women, because she showed how you can make your dreams come true even if it seems impossible. She lived her dream, and was one of only three female scouts in Major League Baseball. She showed with hard work and perseverance, you can make your dreams come true, and she did just that, she was a Scout for the New York Yankees!

Below is an article in which the New York Yankees honor her. Below is a video of her being interviewed by the YES network! Finally there is a slide show dedicated to Kelly from Cesarpressbott Foundation.

Kelly touched everyone she met in a special way, though she left us much sooner than expected, I’m sure she’s in Heaven as An Angel doing GOD’s Work and Making a Difference Like She Did When She Was Here With Us!

“Guardian Angel In Our Lives”

A Letter written by, Jenny Friedberg,

Thanking Dr. Cesar Presbott for Changing both her and her son’s life.


irst let me say that you have been a Guardian Angel in our lives and especially in my son’s Nico. When he was six years old he picked up a baseball bat and never put it down. It has been a passion since then – a flame fanned by both me and by his extraordinary grandmother – but, ultimately it has been his true love. With that said, during the spring and summer of 2018, he’s been suffering from low self esteem due to a learning disability and social pressures, turned to substances to make him feel better about himself. He was using heavily for a few months before he quickly turned to being the provider of those substances to his friends. It was a dark time!

I sent him away for the summer and he regained his health and sanity but I was not sure if I could bring him home, ultimately I decided to give him another chance because I love him. I was scared. I knew in order for him to make it back at home and to be not be influenced by the same forces that took him down the wrong path, he would need tremendous support and a wall of baseball around him. By the Grace of God, I reconnected with Ray Negron during this period and he introduced us to you Cesar.

You came all the way from the Bronx to South Brooklyn see Nico- a kid you didn’t know. You looked at him for a few minutes and then took me aside and said – “All I see is a normal kid. Forget about ADHD and forget about what happened, Now we will work.”, and you did! You made effort to spend time with him and we have kept in touch ever since. Before you left the batting cages that day, you went to see all of the other kids that were playing there. I heard you say “I will tell them, The Yankees Are Here.” Having grown up a huge fan, it was a magical moment, but not because of the Yankees hat and ring, but because I saw the heart of generosity in you and the true love you have for these kids.

Thank You. That day changed our lives and has motivated Nico and me ever since, in way words cannot express. It was no accident that we met you – only an Angel could have sent you!

This summer Nico played at Stanford, Duke, Harvard, and Columbia. He did Multiple show cases and played with both his old and his new travel team from Brooklyn to Ohio and back again.

Nico knows how hard he needs to work. He also knows that a tiny fraction of young men will become professional, but he is focused. He also determined over this year that if a professional course of baseball isn’t possible, he will follow an education of Physical Therapy, committing to being around baseball for the rest of his life.

I can only say that this is a Miracle especially given where we were a year ago. I cannot enough express my gratitude to you and to the inspiration you provided and continue to provide. I feel so deeply that we were meant to meet you, it has changed the way I think about everything. We will be at your service as you need us and most especially for the Cesar Presbott Foundation Turkey Drive.

You are a humble wonderful, inspiring person. Thank You for helping to show us that out of darkness can only come Light! God Bless You, Our Friend!

With My Warmest Regards and Respect, Jenny Friedberg.

Negron: Yankee Loyalty and Support Keep Scouts Strong

By: Ray Negron


any years ago, George Steinbrenner told me that the key to winning championships was to have great scouts out in the field amassing the best information possible.

In the 1970s, he was armed with the best scouts in the game. That roster included Gary Walker and the great Birdie Tibbetts. It’s no coincidence that the Yanks signed so many great free agents and in turn won three AL Pennants and two World Championships. They also had terrific scouts at the amateur levels. Scouts that were very proud of working for the Yanks and in turn were always looking for that diamond in the rough. The brilliant skills of these scouts helped the Yanks get some terrific talent, despite the fact they were winning and weren’t getting high draft picks.

Forty years later, the quality of scouting in the organization, from the Major League level to the amateur ranks, has only gotten better. The pride that these scouts exemplify, even today, is remarkable because of how proud they are in being associated with the Yankees. They come across much different than scouts in other organizations. There is just a special attitude that they seem to inherit.

Two of those prideful people are veteran scout Cesar Presbott and the Yankees’ first female scout, Kelley Rodman. Both of these scouts truly do understand the importance of their jobs. They get up every morning and can’t wait to see who they might find that day. They are not afraid to follow a hunch. They are also not afraid to show people, especially kids, that they also have a heart and not everything is so matter of fact. 

They’re not not afraid to give a kid with a dream, some hope. Sometimes maybe more than warranted. Sometimes they’re even willing to throw some batting practice or hit some ground balls after their coaches have gone home, because they see something that their coach may not have and they don’t want to step on the coach’s toes.

Baseball needs more people like Cesar and Kelley in this great game. We have good people in the game, however the great ones are far and few between.

This weekend MLB scouting was honoring me for my community service in baseball however I felt that the ones that needed to be honored was Cesar and Kelley. In the last year, Kelley was diagnosed with cancer and has lost her beautiful hair, yet she came to the ceremony and stood there with the pride of a champion and a true Yankee.

Cesar was dealing with a heart ailment a month ago and all he could think about, while in the hospital, was how long before I can get back on the field to do my job.

That’s the Yankee way!

While giving my speech, I said that I was more proud of the Yankees now, than at any time in my long association with the organization. When Cesar was down and hurting he got calls from team officials Damon Oppenheimer and Matt Hyde. Both men let Cesar know that he had nothing to worry about. They told him to just get healthy so that ‘you can get back in the field doing what you do best.’ I also understand that they have shown the same wonderful respect and support to Kelley.

I think the Boss would be very proud because this has always been the “Steinbrenner-Yankee way.”
