BELLPORT - The Long Island Ducks mascot, QuackerJack, was the special guest today at the Eastern Suffolk BOCES Summer Program at the Brookhaven Learning Center in Bellport.

Many of the students in the program, who are between the ages of 12 to 20 years old, are on the autism spectrum. The six-week program is aimed at preventing students from forgetting what they learned during the school year.

The center uses QuackerJack to motivate the students by getting them to interact with each other, involving the students in a baseball game and helping with the summer curriculum.
