POMONA, NY – The New York Boulders and the United States Military Academy have announced that Palisades Credit Union Park in Rockland County will host Army and Navy baseball teams on the 8th and 9th. may.
The time for the first game on May 8 is set for 1 p.m., while the first launch on May 9 is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
Tickets for single entry doubles cost $ 10 for one day, while admission for two days will cost $ 15 when purchased in advance. Tickets go on sale Wednesday April 28 at www.nyboulders.com and at the Palisades Credit Union Park box office.
Members of the military in uniform will receive free entry to the games on that day.
“We are honored to host Army and Navy baseball games this year,” said Boulders team president Shawn Reilly. “We welcome Cadet families and classmates as well as fans from across the New York City area to come to our beautiful Rockland County Baseball Stadium to cheer on our country’s best!”
Reilly added, “I think I share the sentiment of many when I say I can’t wait to sit outside and watch baseball again.”
Both the army and the navy play in the League of Patriots. This season, with the League of Patriots split into two divisions, the Army sits atop the north, while the Navy is second in the south. Barring a postseason encounter, those four games will be the only time the two service academy rivals face off on the Diamond this year.
The Army-Navy baseball series began in 1901. Since then, the Navy has held a 126-118 advantage over cadets. PCU Park matches will be the first between the two teams since the 2019 season. That year, the Army won three of four regular-season Patriot League contests from the Midshipmen – dividing two games at West Point and sweeping away a two-game set at Annapolis.
In May 2019, the two teams met in the Patriot League Championship, with Army winning the best of three series, two games against one.
The two were scheduled to play at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia in 2019, but did not play due to COVID. They performed at Fenway Park in Boston in 2018 and Camden Yards in Baltimore in 2006.
CBS Sports Network is scheduled to air the game at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 9, while the remaining three games will be available on the ESPN3 network.
After an exhibition game on May 22 against the NYPD – game time is 6:30 p.m., the New York Boulders’ highly anticipated Frontier League debut will arrive on May 27 when they host the New Jersey Jackals at Palisades Credit Union Park in Pomona. .
The game time for the opening day is 7 p.m.
