Time Out by John Bernhardt

Time Out: July 23, 2008

Make room on your summer schedule to check out some minor league baseball. A trip to the park to catch the Oneonta Tigers, the Binghamton Mets or even the Hudson Valley Renegades (they play at Dutchess Stadium in Wappinger’s Falls) or the Tri-City Valley Cats (located in Troy) are all within reasonable driving distances. Yankee fans would enjoy a day trip to Scranton to watch the Bombers Triple-A affiliate, the Scranton /Wilkes-Barre Yanks. The serious baseball fan, or the casual fan simply looking for a night of fun and entertainment, can use the Catskills as a launching pad to find a minor league baseball game at any level.

Time Out: June 11, 2008

The change of venues will be the final chapter in baseball’s transformation from a sport for the masses to one for the classes -- the upper classes that is.
