  1. Live five minutes from Tri City Valley Cats and I love the Penn league.. Although, wish they sent Correa there right off the bat though.

  3. I’m looking forward to the stuff on Williamsport after that back and forth on twitter that we had last week regarding Walding’s BP display. I noticed that he already has five errors but I don’t know if that’s standard for the NYPL or not. Hopefully he finds a position and continues to hit.

  4. Williamsport has been a bright spot thus far in what has been a depressing season for Phillies fans at both the major-league and minor-league levels.

  5. I live on Staten Island, and I’ve loved going to see the Staten Island Yankees play since they moved here in 1999. Among others, over the years I’ve been delighted by the likes of Robinson Cano, Melky Cabrera, Brett Gardner, Chien Ming Wang, and Francisco Cervelli as they matured from raw prospects to eventually become members of the major-leagues. All these budding stars, with prices much lower than the park in the Bronx. The level of play is not incredible, but the emotion is genuine, especially when facing our crosstown rivals, the Brooklyn Cyclones. If our crowds are any indicator, the whole league fosters a fun and family-friendly environment.

  6. I get to Norwich several times a year – the difference that’s noticed is not only the pitching, as mentioned, but the defense. In AA, fly balls all get caught. In SS A-ball, it’s a bit of an adventure. Great ball, though, and the kids love it.

  7. I agree. If you’re looking for the best of the NY Penn League, you should really check out the two beautiful waterfront stadiums the SI Yankees and Brooklyn Cyclones play in. Sure, the level of play is pretty inconsistent, but you definitely see some diamonds in the rough. The Mets roster this year is stacked with ex-Cyclones–more by necessity than choice, perhaps, but it’s still fun to see the development. And the atmosphere is great.
