Vote for the Staten Island Yankees 15th Anniversary Team- Pitcher Edition

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!

This young player was a great asset to this years team. I’ve only been watching the SI yanks for a few years now but he is a fun player to watch especially that he has his hometown crowd on his side. In my mind he is at least in the Top 15 that I’ve watched so far.

If you are referring to Dillon McNamara, I would have to agree with you. He at least deserves to be on the ballot. He’s the only player that the SI crowd really cared about last season.

This young players brings a certain poise and confidence to the mound, that I haven’t seen out of many young pitchers. He made all of last season very exciting, and if he’s back on Staten Island this summer out odds of winning the Penn championship increase drastically.

I saw someone share this link and I had to throw in my 2 cents. I’ve been coaching and playing Staten Island baseball for quite some time. If there was one pitcher I hated to have my team face, it was McNamara. The kid can throw. He places the ball so well and then will kill you with the slider. Now with this Yankee team he had just over a 2.00 ERA and an opponent BA of .181. Amazing! I have to agree with the past comments in saying he is definitely the crowd favorite. He has a little fan club each game (I’m guilty some games). Not taking any credit away from the past pitchers but McNamara has my vote. PS best part about it. He’s a genuine kid. Role model for all these Staten Island boys

Being a homegrown player the Dillon McNamara exemplifies every trait both on and off the field as one of the all-time great Staten Island Yankees. After to going to many games these past few years I have never seen a player interact with fans in such a caring and fun fashion like Dillon has. On the field it’s always all business, and when his walkout song comes on you can’t help but have pride in Staten Island. Dillon is not only a great Staten Island Yankee but a great Staten Islander.

I live in Long Island and followed Dillon McNamara from his days playing for Adelphi University. He put incredible work ethic on display while attending university. His schedule was always full due to his rigorous training regimen and his thirst for knowledge. When he wasn’t in the gym, he had his head buried in textbooks in the library. When he had extra time on the weekends he would hold meetings at the local church’s youth group often speaking against alcohol abuse, explaining to teens that they don’t need to drink to have a good time. He is truly a pleasure and deserves the honor of being considered one of the most prominent Staten Island Yankees of all time. Thank you and goodnight.

I have been watching the SI Yankees going back to the days they played at the college. Although some of the pitchers on the list have had decent major league careers, none of them excited the fans as Staten Island Yankees. Dillon brought something special to the stadium last year. There was a buzz when he pitched and he improved as the year went on. He is a hometown favorite and we look forward to seeing him grow in the system and will there to support him at each level.

Tim Norton worked and played harder than any pitcher I have ever had the pleasure to watch. One of the best!

Look at the man’s stats! Good stuff!

Where’s Dellin Betances, David Phelps, John Axford, Zach McAllister and Adam Warren?
