Play Ball!!!!! Feel like major league baseball has left you behind, high prices and poor player access? Well get yourself to a minor league game. The Staten Island Yankees are a short season A team and prices are very reasonable and player access for autographs and photos is great. Before the game walk to the dugout, shout out the players you like and pretty often they will come over and sign for you. There is a real small town feel to the games and between the innings there are often fun games and contests like the kiddie tug of war to keep the fans involved. Most games have a promotion of some sort and fan enthusiasm is high. The stadium here has an amazing view of the Hudson Harbor and lower Manhattan as well as the periodic passing of the Staten Island Ferry and other seafaring vessels. For those who came to the game from Manhattan there is the added bonus of a great ride back to the city with the skyline before you. Even this crew member, who has taken the trip a million times, still gets a kick out of the nighttime view. If you are fortunate to be near a minor league team going will reconnect you to the sport like nothing else.
