The Tri-City ValleyCare are used to having a big presence at the New York Penn-League all-star games, and in 2017, they'll be the hosts of the party.

The 'Cats sent three players to the game this week at Dutchess Stadium in Wappingers Falls including catcher Chuckie Robinson, who we spoke to last week on 'Big Board Sports.'

It will be awesome to see the game back in Troy in 2017 as well as the New York-Penn League does an excellent job of bringing organizations and fans together and gives the diehard baseball fans a chance to see some top-notch prospects in action.

I'm already looking forward to watching the skill that is on display next August and know the rest of the Capital Region will enjoy it as well.
