Continuing with the selection process of our 15th Anniversary Team, voting is now open for the greatest catcher and infielders in Staten Island Yankees history! For each position, one player will be selected by you, the fans. These players will be included in the 12-man roster that will make up our All-Time Greats card set to be given out at three separate games this season. If there’s a player you’d like to vote for, but don’t see their name listed, simply type their name into the ‘Other’ field to submit your vote. Voting for this round is open until noon on Tuesday, June 3. Cast your votes now and be on the look out for the official announcement of our entire 15th Anniversary All-Time Great Team next Friday!
All season long, the Staten Island Yankees will be celebrating 15 memorable years as a member of the Staten Island community. As we reflect on the first 14 seasons, many former Baby Bombers come to mind as individuals who helped shape the history of this franchise. Whether these individuals made it to The Show or not, many of them gave their all to bring six New York-Penn League championships back to the Richmond County Bank Ballpark at St. George. Now we’re asking you, the fans, to help us decide which former players will make up our All-Time Great 15th Anniversary Team! For the next two weeks leading up to Opening Day, we’re opening the polls for you to choose which players will be displayed on our All-Time Greats card set. These sets will be given away at select games this season (specific details coming soon). The first ballot of players consists of the pitchers. The pitchers receiving the top four vote totals will be featured in the All-Time Greats card set. Voting for pitchers ends at noon on Friday, May 30, so vote for your favorites now!
There’s no food that represents a great night at the ballpark better than a well-dressed hot dog. That’s why we asked Baby Bomber fans to nominate which ingredients they would like to see on our official hot dog for the 2014 season. And you guys gave us some great responses! From off-the-wall recipes such as gummy bears and chocolate sauce submitted by Robert Myssura, to more traditional flavors such as sharp provolone, grilled onions and spicy mustard submitted by Stephanie Janetzko, there were certainly some interesting contenders in this contest. However, only one hot dog can lay claim to our official hot dog for this summer. We picked the tastiest ones, and now you can vote on which hot dog will reign supreme at the Richmond County Ballpark at St. George this summer! Cast your votes below and stay tuned to find out which creation you can try at a ball game this season.
