2014 Baby Bombers Top 10: No. 7- Dog Days of Summer

No. 7: Dog Days of Summer

Dogs

For the first time in the team’s 15-year history, the Staten Island Yankees welcomed dogs to Richmond County Bank Ballpark for “Dog Days of Summer”! More than 100 dogs ventured to the ballpark with their humans to watch the Baby Bombers take on the Vermont Lake Monsters on a late August night. The game was filled with tons of festivities for dog lovers, including a pre-game agility demonstration on the field by some of our four-legged friends from the Westminster Kennel Club.

Dog Days of Summer also served as a benefit for two local organizations, Angels on a Leash and Fur Friends in Need. A portion of each dog ticket sold was donated to the organizations, and a few precious dogs were available for adoption in the ballpark. Speaking of adoption, the Staten Island Yankees welcomed a new member to the mascot family at Richmond County Bank Ballpark.

Effa

With the recently defunct Newark Bears closing their doors, Effa was left without a ballpark to call home. The Staten Island Yankees added Effa to the mascot family, adopting the bear, giving Scooter the Holy Cow and Red another pal to roam the ballpark with. We can’t wait to see all our dog friends and Effa at the ballpark again in 2015!
