The year was 2000. It was the first World Series of the new decade. Luis Sojo stepped up to the plate, and with one quick crack of the bat, he hit a baseball that will forever be etched in the legacy of the Yankee’s baseball franchise, giving them the win of the series. Fast forward 14 years, Luis Sojo put away his baseball, glove, and bat and pulled out his golf clubs to spend a day on the greens at The Country Club at Woodloch Springs, an 18-hole championship golf course in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains.

On Wednesday, August 6, 2014, golfers and baseball players alike came together for the 6th Annual Pinstripes Golf Classic. All proceeds went to benefit the Cody Miley Memorial Art Scholarship Fund, established in honor of Railriders Manager David Miley’s son, who died in a car accident in 2008. The tournament was an 18-hole scramble featuring 10 amateur foursome teams, each paired up with one current Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders player or coach participating as the team’s captain. The winning team came in 15 under par.

The cost for each player was $250.00 or $1,000.00 for a full foursome. Included in each golfer’s entry fee was: 18 holes of golf, lunch, cocktails, dinner, golf trunk locker favors, and awards, such a thousands of pro-shop dollars and numerous rounds of golf. There was memorabilia from baseball greats as well as a chance to mingle with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders and baseball legends of the past.

Located just an hour north of Scranton, The Country Club at Woodloch Springs is nationally recognized by GOLF Magazine as "one of the finest courses in America" and is rated 4.5 stars by Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play.

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders are the Triple-A affiliate of the New York Yankees. The RailRiders home opener against the Syracuse Chiefs kicked off on April 3rd at the newly remodeled PNC Field.
