Remembering When The Yankees Played in Albany
I love baseball. I used to watch a lot of minor league baseball in this area as a kid. The Albany-Colonie Yankees were the best!A lot of others can even remember when Glens Falls had The White Sox and Tigers minor league teams as well. It was always fun to see the players and wonder who was going to make it to big leagues and be a star.
One player I remember well spending some time in Albany for a few games was Mariano Rivera. Buck Showalter, who went on to become the Yankees manager in New York City, was the manager of the A-C Yankees as well.There’s a lot more who made the move from Albany to the big leagues here, enjoy the nostalgia.
Any other Albany-Colonie Yankee Fans out there?
