Major League Baseball
Back in 2008, a video of pitcher Pat Venditte, then a member of the Staten Island Yankees went viral. Now, it’s not every day that a video of a class A minor league pitcher goes viral, but Venditte has a talent that’s truly novel.
Since the Staten Island Yankees were created in 1999 and moved to Richmond County Ball Park in 2001, the Low A team has shown New York’s southernmost borough some great baseball. The team has won seven division titles and six championships since 2000, the last coming in 2011.
