Meet Five New York Sports Stars at Capital Region ‘House of Sport’ Opening
After closing for renovation for a period of time, the Dick's Sporting Goods location in Latham, New York has officially re-opened. The store will go by a new moniker, however, as the Dick's House of Sport will give patrons a whole new experience from the moment they walk in the doors.
An article from The Times Union detailed the many changes that were made to the Latham Dick's location, all of which will be on-display during the Grand Opening Weekend, which will run from July 28th through the 30th.
As part of the festivities, five superstar athletes with ties to New York sports will be on-hand to sign autographs for customers this weekend: WBNA star Rebecca Lobo, Rangers' legend Adam Graves, NFL great Boomer Esiason, Giants' franchise cornerstone Saquon Barkley, and Yankees' hero Tino Martinez.

As detailed by the TU, the newly-renovated Dick's location will give its customers a far more interactive experience. The store has new multi-sport cages, which can be used for baseball, softball, field and ice hockey; lacrosse and soccer, and are all available to rent. They also have new golf bays, with Trackman simulator technology, which are also available to rent.
For the golfer in your life looking to improve their game, you can rent a golf bay with a lesson from a PGA professional as well. The store still possesses a number of its classic shopping sections, including shoes, fishing/outdoors and more.
