Owner and President of the Saugerties Stallions baseball team, Kevin Hinchey, publicly challenged the New York Yankees to compete against his team, committing $100,000 to the charity of the winning team’s choosing. In a statement last night before his team’s home game today against the Albany Dutchmen, Hinchey announced his challenge to an exhibition game. A letter, delivered by certified mail today to Hal Steinbrenner, owner of the New York Yankees, formally made the challenge. The proposed game would be held either in Saugerties, NY or at Yankee Stadium in New York City.

Hinchey, holding a large $100,000 check, and surrounded by members of his team, declared that the Stallions were so exceptionally good that they should be considered as a feeder league for the New York Yankees. “To mark the start of the 2016 draft season,” Hinchey said, “I think Mr. Steinbrenner should see this team for himself. I know he will be impressed, and I am willing to donate a lot of money to whatever charity he wants - if his team wins. If our team wins, we will still donate the money to The National Cancer Society and St. Jude’s Children Hospital,” promised Hinchey.

The Saugerties Stallions are 3-0 and lead the Eastern Division of the Perfect Game Collegiate League (PGCBL). For more information visit
