It's official, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Red Barons are going to replace the Columbus Clippers as the Yankees' AAA team. This is great news since there are far more Yankees fans than Phillies, the team Red Barons were previously affiliated with, fans in our area. There are major changes in store for the stadium where the team currently plays. There is talk of switching from astroturf to natural grass as well as getting rid of the upper decks to increase the demand for tickets. The current team isn't spectacular and neither is the attendance which might, in part, be due to their performance and the Phillies affiliation. All this is going to change. People are going to be coming to the games to see the future Yankees as well as the current ones during their rehab stints. All I can say is: "take me out to the ball game!"
