Cricket Article In NY Times

New York Times Features a Story on NYPD Cricket

The Police Department established a cricket competition for young men in the city last summer; the project was a success, and on Tuesday, play began for another season. Interest has expanded, with 10 teams and 170 players involved this year, compared with 6 teams last year.

“This is the most diverse city in the world,” said Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly. “We don’t have uniform relationships with all communities. This opens the door, allows us to interact with them on the sport field.”
