Winter prep underway at “The Joe!”
It’s that time of year again! Daytime is becoming shorter and shorter, the weather is getting colder and colder, and as much as some of us don’t want to hear it, snowflakes will soon be falling.
With winter rapidly approaching, we need to make sure things at “The Joe” are properly stored away, and undertake any stadium improvement projects that we can complete before the snow falls.
One such project is paving the area behind the video board, which leads to the Top of the Hill Bar & Grill.
Aside from leveling the surface and getting rid of the rocks, the ultimate goal is to use this extra space to expand the Top of the Hill.
Final winter preparations have just been completed on the playing field, as Eric and Travis from Brickman Landscaping have edged the infield. Now that the grass has stopped growing, it’s a perfect time to get it ready for the snow, and winter temperatures.
The rest of the stadium has been packed up and placed into storage, leaving an eery looking empty concourse.
The Hudson Valley Community College baseball team will be back on the field in March for their spring season, then before you know it, the 2014 ‘Cats will hit the field!
On the community front, SouthPaw has been very busy making appearances, and bringing along the New York-Penn League Championship trophy with him!
Here are a few photos from Crossgates Mall as SouthPaw celebrated the arrival of Santa, with children from the B95.5 Kids Club.
SouthPaw also stopped by NBT Bank in East Greenbush to meet with fans and customers!
