Staten Island MiLB Team To Open Season June 19

The Staten Island Yankees may be no more, but the team will live on beginning June 19, 2017, under a new moniker as they take on their cross-town rivals the Brooklyn Cyclones.

The Staten Island, minor league franchise, will face the Cyclones total of 13 times next season including the regular season finale at MCU Park on September 9. Due to a change in the league’s scheduling format for the 2017 season, Staten Island will face every team in the New York-Penn League except for the Batavia Muckdogs, Auburn Doubledays, and State College Spikes.

Of the 76 games on the season schedule, 37 will take place in the McNamara Division with the Aberdeen Ironbirds and Hudson Valley Renegades slated to play twelve games apiece against Staten Island. The remaining 39 games consist of teams from the Pinckney and the Stedler Divisions, with nine each against the Lowell Spinners, Connecticut Tigers, and the Tri-City Valley Cats.
