Staten Island Yankees Rebranding as Staten Island Pizza Rats

by | Jun 11, 2018 | Featured, Sports on Bay

For fives games this Summer, the Staten Island Yankees will officially be rebranded as the Staten Island Pizza Rats.

Back in 2016, the team sought to possibly rebrand as part of a larger effort to drum up business and fill a whole lot of empty seats. Pizza Rats quickly rose to the top of the pile by way of public vote. But before you could say marinara, the SI Yankees decided to keep their name and ties to the Yankees name.

Then. Silence. For two years. Until now.

Beginning June 23rd, for five Saturdays in a row, the SI Yankees will honor the will of the people and change their name to the Staten Island Pizza Rats. Complete with piping hot new gear and swag to purchase.

If you’d like to buy some tickets to these special games or get in on some of this Pizza Rat merch, head on over to, what else,
