I Love New York Night at “The Joe!”

The first place ValleyCats returned to “The Joe” on Friday night as they welcomed the Staten Island Yankees.

The ‘Cats jumped out to a 9-0 lead with a third inning barrage that saw every member of the starting lineup cross the plate. D’Andre Toney, Tyler White, Conrad Gregor, and Tyler White each had two hits to pace the attack. Gregor had the biggest blow with a long home run in the 6th. Kyle Westwood was sharp in four innings of relief to earn the win.

Tonight was also “I Love New York Night”/Home Improvement Night at the ballpark. Our friends from Trustco Bank were on hand with Trusty tossing out a ceremonial first pitch. They were also recognized as one of the co-champions in the Capital Region Series Tournament and received their trophy prior to the game

The ‘Cats go for their third win in a row on the field and a new World Record in the stands. Join us as we try to establish the largest gathering of people wearing false mustaches ever! The first 3,000 fans through the gate will receive a fake mustache with the official attempt taking place in the 2nd inning! Tonight’s game is presented by Monolith Solar. Monolith is also providing free tickets for veterans. Those tickets can be claimed at the gate with a military ID.
