The Pride of the Albany-Colonie Yankees
One of the greatest Yankees of all-time played for the Albany-Colonie Yankees in 1994. This isn't news for many locals, especially those that take advantage of the minor league baseball in the Capital Region. Before the ValleyCats were sending waves of Astros to the big leagues, the Albany-Colonie Yankees were supplying new recruits to the Bronx Bombers like Bernie Williams, Al Leiter, Deion Sanders, Roberto Kelly and Jim Leyritz to name just a few. However, without question, the greatest being Derek Jeter.
