Yeah Baby Golf Classic

January 2024

The Yeah Baby Golf Classic, an annual event hosted by the Yeah Baby Foundation, was a resounding success, having brought 136 dedicated golfers and more than 30 guests together for a day of camaraderie and competition.

Established in tribute to beloved Kean University Lacrosse Assistant Coach Michael J. Cleary, the Yeah Baby Foundation showcases the spirit of the community that surrounded him – and this year’s golf outing did not disappoint! The competition came down to an intense “putt-off” that kept participants on the edge of their seats. Ultimately, the victorious quartet emerged, with Kean University faculty/staff and alumni Matt Caruso ’99 ’04 M.A., Pat Ippolito ’62 ’65 M.A., Chris Rustick ‘02, and Joey Moran ‘02 holding the trophy. Their triumph not only added an exciting element to the event but also served as a fitting tribute to the enduring legacy of Coach Cleary, whose memory was honored by family and friends.
