Tuesday’s little league 10-and-under game between host Mt. Kisco and visiting Lewisboro was a notable one, as its marked Mikey Corsi’s return with a ceremonial first pitch.
Corsi, 10, has been recovering since his heart stopped during a June 30 game, which was hosted by Lewisboro, caused by a generic heart rhythm issue called QT Syndrome. At the game, his life was saved with CPR from Dr. Carmine Sorbera, a Lewisboro resident and a cardiologist at Columbia University Medical Center who performed CPR on Corsi.

Sorbera is also a cousin of Mt. Kisco Little League Coach Ralph Nuzzi.
Corsi was subsequently taken to the emergency room at Northern Westchester Hospital, then to Columbia-Presbyterian in New York City, where he then received an internal defibrillator implant, according to his mother, Lisa Corsi.
While Corsi is out for the season as he recovers, he is making progress, and his mother even expects him to be able ot start swimming again soon.
Mt. Kisco won the game, 16-5, according to the box score. It was stopped in the 6th inning due to there being more than a 10-run spread between the teams so late in the game, according to George Rubin, who helps out the team and keeps score. Highlights, according to Rubin, included Tommy Passarelli going 4 for 4, with two home runs. He, along with Joe Nuzzi and Chris DiFiore, were the pitchers.
