The Hudson Valley Renegades (Aired on May 4, 2012)
Rotarian Eben Yager (Poughkeepsie-Arlington) discusses the Renegades baseball team, now in its 19th season. General Manager Yager describes the many reasons for the team’s enormous and growing popularity, which includes the enthusiastic energy of the players and the extensive forms of family entertainment available at each game. In addition, the raccoon mascots are loads of fun: Rookie (dad), Renee (mom), and Rascal (their child). Furthermore, the cost of tickets and food is reasonable, there are no “bad” seats, and the food is varied and delicious. There are also many special activities, such as Bed & Breakfast Night, Scout Night, and so forth.
