Laca Blast draws 225 guests including jai-alai and baseball stars

The Saturday night Laca blast drew an amazing 225 people over the course of the 8 hour party.

The party featured his 60th birthday and the grand opening of the sports and jai-alai museum.

Baseball Hall of Famer Wade Boggs was in attendance all night, and "The Crime Dog" Fred McGriff also attended.

Jai-alai visitors included Jai-a-Lou and Rocco from Ft. Lauderdale, jai-alai historian Mark K. and Scott King. Local players that attended included Castanos, his son Kyle (who celebrated his 20th birthday that night playing piano with Wade Boggs sitting on a chair next to him!), Corky, George, Rule, Gino, Anthony, Armando, Chip, Javy, Julio, Luis, Neel, Paul H, and Thomas - who celebrated his wedding night at the party.

Guests were treated to an open bar (yes, the lines were long), catering from Carabba's with some excellent food, a spectator fireworks show from the dock.

Otis and his Old School Band played Animal House hits for nearly 5 hours as a few were dressed in toga's to celebrate.

Many played Ping-Pong, air hockey, jai-alai pinball, live blackjack and poker.

But the highlight was the sports and jai-alai museum that Mark K said "was second to none".

Over 660 photos were taken by a professional photographer and we will make them available shortly as a story is getting prepared for the home page of this website.

I would like to thank all those that made it a night to remember.
