Following the New York Yankees’ announcement they will move their High Single-A affiliate to Hudson Valley and Dutchess Stadium, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro has issued the following statement:
“Dutchess County is proud to join the long illustrious history of the New York Yankees as host of a minor league affiliate at our own Dutchess Stadium, beginning next season.
The next generation of Yankee stars — ballplayers who will look to etch their names in Yankees history alongside legends like Ruth, DiMaggio, Mantle and Jeter — will take the field as professionals right here in Dutchess County.
Local Yankee fans will have the unique opportunity to watch the next Aaron Judge or Gleyber Torres hone their skills right at Dutchess Stadium, on their way to the Big Ballyard in the Bronx. And just a few MTA stops from the stadium, we can expect to see big league stars on rehab assignments.
We are all excited for live baseball and looking forward to a great 2021 baseball season, collaborating with the New York Yankees and the Goldklang Group to ensure this new partnership brings a successful franchise to Dutchess County.
