Nick Devito, 79, of Commack, will never forget the heartbreak of his Little League team's elimination from a tournament one game before playing at Yankee Stadium. His bucket list has since included pitching at a professional baseball game, something he was able to check off at the Long Island Ducks game on Aug. 27 with the help of the staff at The Bristal assisted living community in East Northport, where Devito now lives.
