Father-son duo first in line for Ducks tickets

A new father-son duo from Yaphank are first in line this year to buy their Long Island Ducks tickets.

For seven consecutive years, Dick Van Cott and his son Ron, of Bay Shore, were the first ones outside Ducks Stadium to get their seats. However, this year, Ryan Kamer and his father Charlie took their place.

The two have been camping outside in a tent since 8 a.m. Thursday. Ryan Kamer says in order to miss two days of school he's had to keep his grades up and make the honor roll.

The Ducks tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m.
