"We're Hopeful. We have been paying very close attention to New York State and the CDC Guidelines. We are hoping in late July to do movie nights or a concert while following all guidelines and ensuring the safety of everyone involved."
Even with no baseball for the team in 2020, the front-office and volunteers are taking part in the10th Annual ‘4 in 24’ youth field renovation project earlier this week.
"We have always made it a top priority to give back to the local community. It's about the impact. When you finish a project like this you can see how much of a positive impact you can make on the game of baseball, and that's the best part."
Everyone working in Minor League Baseball has shared why MiLB matters to them, and how it's impacted their life. When asked what MiLB means to himself, Matt said:
"It was an opportunity for me to get involved in baseball. From a broader scale, MiLB is a community, it's grassroots baseball. It's an opportunity for fans, whether you are a die-hard fan or just going for the fireworks, to experience what community feels like and learn about the game at a more intimate level."
