VOTE FOR THE NYPL ALL-TIME TEAM

The New York-Penn League, in its 72nd year, is the oldest continually operated Class A league in Minor League Baseball and this year fans will have the chance to help select the league’s All-Time Team.

“This league has such a great history and it’s something we wanted to celebrate”, stated league president Ben J. Hayes. “Over 2,400 players who have played in the NYPL have gone on to appear in Major League Baseball, from Hall-of-Famers like Jim Rice and Tony Perez to present day stars such as Ryan Howard, Johan Santana and C.C. Sabathia. Back in 1960 the Geneva (NY) Redlegs had both Tony Perez and Pete Rose on the same team”, Hayes said. “You wonder if fans, at the time, knew how successful they would be? Probably not, since the team actually finished in last place.”

The New York-Penn League All-Time Team is presented by the 300,000 members of CSEA- New York’s leading union. “CSEA is proud to be associated with the New York-Penn League and its rich history in our region,” said CSEA President Danny Donohue. “CSEA is marking our centennial anniversary in 2010, which makes it natural to be involved in a project that provides historical perspective. CSEA’s centennial provides a chance to reflect on where we’ve come from and how we can become better in the future – it’s a lot like what the New York Penn-League is all about.”

The New York-Penn League All-Time Team will be chosen by fan voting online at www.VoteNYPL.com through August 1, 2010. In addition to choosing players at each position, fans will also have a voice in picking a manager of the team. More information can be found at www.newyork-pennleague.com.

The NYPL All-Time Team will be unveiled at the league’s All-Star game in Staten Island on August 17.
