In addition to the program, titled “Basically Baseball,” there will be door prizes donated by the Hudson Valley Renegades, Rockland Boulders and the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center.

Adamovich, a Yonkers native, is a 24-year veteran of the Army Reserve and was a Senior Court Officer for almost 33 years. A job-related accident prompted him to restart his childhood card collection, which he expanded to include equipment and game-worn uniforms. The grange hall is located at 128 Mill St., at Peekskill Hollow Road.
