At Staten Island Academy, a dream realized

At my Alma Mater a ball field is dedicated to to a victim of the terrorist attacks if 9-11... - Staten Island Advance - At Staten Island Academy, a dream realized:

Alexander Robbins Steinman's memorial 'field of dreams' opened yesterday at Staten Island Academy in Dongan Hills, and the friends and family members who brought it to fruition are certain his spirit will imbue it.

Paraphrasing another of her brother's favorite movies, Rachel Steinman Kelleher told family, fellow alumni and athletes at the opening ceremony that the chance to watch students enjoy the nearly eight acres of newly renovated baseball, softball, soccer and lacrosse fields would be 'an offer [his spirit] couldn't refuse.'
