The Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees have a secret: they are one on he best entertainment values in Northeastern Pennsylvania. They are a fascinating franchise as they are the Triple A farm team for the New York Yankees, and they are in first place in the International League. Many of their players should make it into Major League Baseball, play before a national audience, perform in the playoffs and even the World Series. This is a great franchise for baseball fans. Over the years, I have enjoyed several games at the park and found them to be very entertaining. The team has many special programs to make the games even more enjoyable.

Why These Programs Are Important
The Scranton Wilkes-Barre Yankees are a great community asset and we need to keep them here. When more people know about all these great promotions, viewership and attendance should increase and the financial situation for the team should improve. This is extremely important in this era where people have so many entertainment options.
My late uncle loved the game of baseball and watched as many games as he could. He told me the best games he ever saw were minor league games, not major league games. The young players really hustle to get their names in the limelight and their chance to play in the major leagues. Even today the best games might be in the minor leagues.
