Pinstriped Performances

Pinstriped Performances: Saturday, June 16, 2018

On Saturday in the New York Yankees organization, the six teams in action combined for a 4-2 record as the big league clubs and Triple-A clubs each extended their win streak. Meanwhile, a Charleston first baseman had a great night at the plate as the Riverdogs are nearing closer to their All-Star Break. While Tampa had the night off, some of their players took part in the Florida State League All-Star Game. Check out how those players did and much more in tonight’s Pinstriped Performances:
