Kyle Martino ’99’s Inner City Initiative Comes To Bridgeport
Soccer fans have known Kyle Martino ’99 as the Gatorade National High School Player of the Year, an MLS pro with the Columbus Crew and Los Angeles Galaxy, a national team player and an NBC Sports analyst.
Soon, Bridgeport youngsters will know him as the man who brought an innovative soccer court to their city.
This Saturday (July 17, 3 p.m., Cesar Batalla Elementary School, 606 Howard Avenue), Martino introduces the Over Under Initiative. His unique invention is an in-ground goal that pops up quickly and easily, converting basketball courts into multi-sport surfaces, for soccer, handball and floor hockey. It could be a game-changer (pun intended).
The public is invited to Saturday’s ceremony at the Batalla School. For more information click here, and watch the video below.
