About Richmond County Bank Ballpark at St. George
Richmond County Bank Ballpark at St. George has served as the home of the Staten Island Yankees since 2001. Since opening its gates on June 24, 2001, the picturesque waterfront ballpark has been the proving grounds for future MLB stars like Robinson Cano, Dellin Betances, Brett Gardner, Gary Sanchez, and more. In addition to Minor League Baseball, the ballpark is also the home field of the Wagner College Seahawks baseball team and hosts a number of local high school and youth teams every spring.
Richmond County Bank Ballpark is a multi-use venue hosting not only America's Pastime, but also welcoming in concerts, wrestling matches, food and drink festivals, winter festivals, marathons, community events, and more. Ballpark guests over the years include The Beach Boys, Muhammad Ali, Derek Jeter, Hulk Hogan, The Killers, Sugar Ray, Oasis, George R.R. Martin, Spike Lee, Meek Mill, Aaron Carter, and many others.
Groundbreaking for the ballpark took place on June 8, 2000, after the New York Yankees and New York Mets made an agreement, brokered by then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani, that allowed the teams to bring a minor league affiliate to New York City. Since the opening of Richmond County Bank Ballpark, the Staten Island Yankees have had the fortune of a consistant naming rights partner in Richmond County Savings Bank, the only naming rights partner in the ballpark's history.
The ballpark currently sits in the center of the revitalization of St. George's waterfront with billions of dollars being put towards the development of the New York Wheel, Empire Outlets and other local projects. With the ballpark's location next to the Staten Island Ferry and the upcoming opening of these developments, Richmond County Bank Ballpark is primed to be a staple in the Staten Island community for years to come.
