The 2017 edition of the New York State American Legion Baseball Championship Series will feature "THE BANQUET AT THE BALLPARK"!
The teams will arrive between 12:30 and 2PM on Monday as usual and as usual a select group of player will be escorted to the two local Rehab-Nursing homes to spend an hour with the many elderly veterans that reside there. After each player has the veterans sign their baseball and possibly their hat, we will all return to the home base we call The Ramada Inn and get ready for a trip to their home and business for the week, Murnane Field. At 5pm the players will begin enjoying their fantastic BBQ dinner provided by Bone Yard BBQ. It will be standing room only in our 60'X40' tent. Wish we could invite more but we will be shoulder to shoulder for dinner.
Once we finish the meal, we will head out to the grand stands and watch the local Perfect Pitch Collegiate Wood Bat League team, The Utica Blue Sox play
