Minor League Baseball is known for its affordable, family-friendly entertainment. That is certainly the case when it comes to the Pulaski Yankees, who are committed to providing a safe, fun and friendly atmosphere in all aspects of Calfee Park. As one of the first stops for New York Yankee prospects on their way to the Majors, Pulaski provides an affordable, relaxed setting to enjoy professional baseball while maintaining its small-town charm.

#1 Affordability

Pulaski Yankees tickets range from $6 to $11, with discounts offered for children 12 and under, senior citizens, and military personnel. A family of four can attend a Pulaski Yankees’ game for under $50, based on the Team Marketing Report cost that includes two adult tickets, two child tickets, two beers, two sodas, four hot dogs, and parking for one car.

#2 Historic Calfee Park

Calfee Park has been a staple in Pulaski since it was built in 1935. It is listed on the National and State Historic Landmarks Registry and has been pictured in several magazines, including Sports Illustrated, National Geographic, Life, and Virginia Living. Thanks to recent renovations, Calfee Park is the perfect blend of historic and modern, providing a great home for Minor League Baseball.

#3 Top Prospects

As the Rookie (Advanced) affiliate of the New York Yankees, Pulaski is often one of the first stops for top Yankee prospects chasing their dreams of reaching the Big Leagues. In recent years, top Yankee prospects Estevan Florial, Cody Carroll, and Dermis Garcia all suited up for Pulaski at Calfee Park. Fans can also see prospects from other organizations in action; 121 former Appalachian League players were on MLB Opening Day rosters in 2018 with more on their way to the Bigs.

 

#4 Autographs, Selfies, and More

Attending a game at Calfee Park is a great opportunity to get autographs from Pulaski Yankees players. Many times, top NYY prospects are just on the other side of a short fence, which provides great access for autographs, high fives, and selfies. Most players take the time to stop to interact with fans, hand a baseball to a young kid, or sign baseball cards.

#5 Big-Time Promos, Small-Town Effect

The 2018 Pulaski Yankees promo schedule is the biggest, most jam-packed in the organization’s history, featuring promos for 32 of 34 home games. In addition to MiLB favorites such as Thirsty Thursday and crazy theme nights (see: Agriculture Night on August 22), the promo schedule also focuses on giving back to the community that helps the Yankees and Calfee Park Baseball be successful. Top community promos include a toy drive on Christmas in July (July 25), raising funds for cancer research (August 13), and free tickets for local heroes – EMT, police, firefighters, first responders, and military – on Heroes Night (June 29).
