The Tri-City ValleyCats, a Short A affiliate of Houston, play at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium, seating 5,000. Joseph L. Bruno is a New York State Senator who was instrumental in getting the stadium built at Hudson Valley Community College and bringing the team to this location. The stadium owned by the community college and leased to the team was built in 2002. Stadium is nicknamed "The Joe". This is a nice smaller stadium seating around 4,700 with all seats in the seating area and a small grass berm down the 1st baseline. The concessions are located behind the concourse area and the suites are above the concessions. There is a children's play area on the third base side and a picnic area on the first base side. The ValleyCats were playing the Auburn Doubledays and were beaten 6-1. The box score was Doubledays R-6, H-10, E-0 and the ValleyCats R-1, H-8, E-3. The field lines are RF & LF-325' and CF-400'. The mascot is Southpaw the Cat. Attendance for tonight was 1,504. The following information was sent to me by a ValleyCats fan. The City of Troy, NY, is that it is one of two cities that continues to be an "Honorary Members" of MLB's National League. The origins of the current San Francisco Giants franchise can be traced back to Troy, NY. Also, Johnny Evers (Tinkers to Evers to Chance) hailed from Troy, NY.
