Staten Island Yankees

Can't score tickets to a Yankees game? No worries. Treat yourself to an afternoon with the other Yankees: the club's Class A affiliate in Staten Island. The minor-league team has become a major attraction since debuting in 1999, often selling out games at Richmond County Bank Ballpark. The Baby Bombers' scenic stadium is nestled on the bank of Upper New York Bay in St. George, and offers stellar views of the city from every seat in the house. The best part of your outing might be the trip on the Staten Island Ferry to and from the game. The free, 25-minute ferry ride sails under the outstretched arm of the Statue of Liberty, past Ellis Island — it's truly one of NYC's cheapest thrills. Upon arrival, it's a short walk to the arena. Play ball!
