Seward Bill OK’d For Baseball To Be NY Official Sport

Seward Bill OK’d

For Baseball To Be

NY Official Sport

Assembly, Governor Must Now Act

On CCS Fourth Graders’ Request

State Sen. Jim Seward

ALBANY – State Sen. Jim Seward’s bill designating baseball New York’s official state sport has passed the Senate, the Milford Republican’s office announced today.

“It is time that we formally recognize baseball as our official state sport,” Seward said.

“Baseball is known as our national pastime but the game has deep roots and a rich history here in New York State,” he continued.  “From the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in storied Cooperstown, to the Mets and Yankees – the pinnacles of Major League Baseball, to countless college, high school, and Little League teams, New York State is clearly the epicenter of baseball history and greatness. “
