The Riverhead Central School District recently received a historical marker courtesy of the Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame, which commemorates an exciting moment in sports history for the Town of Riverhead. It commemorates the location of the former Wivchar Stadium where legendary pitcher Satchel Paige pitched in July 1950.

The marker now stands near the district office and in front of the current Riverhead baseball field to showcase the rich sports history of the Riverhead community.
