Magic # is 1
The ‘Cats kicked off a crucial three-game set against the Brooklyn Cyclones at ” The Joe” on Labor Day!
After giving up an early run, Kyle Westwood dominated scattering three hits over seven strong innings. The bats came alive with a big eighth inning rally. Tyler White led the way with three hits including the game winning R.B.I. double.
The ValleyCats lead is now 1.5 games and they have a chance to clinch the Stedler Division with a win tonight! Evan Grills is on the mound as we get an early start on the Oktoberfest festivities.

Labor Day also marked our 2nd annual celebration of the Capital Region’s Biggest BBQ with two separate buffets taking place in the Picnic Pavilion and at the Top of the Hill.
The BBQ theme featured some backyard-style competitions including a wiffle ball home run derby, with the finals taking place on the field. Congratulations to Zachary Mackey who won the derby and earned a ceremonial first pitch!
Our friends from Fresh Brewed provided the entertainment with a great set of blues and classic rock on the concourse.
Kids ran the bases following the game to complete the Sunday Funday feel on Labor Day.
