NEW YORK STATE’S SPORT

COOPERSTOWN – This idea is a home run.

Inspired by a suggestion from Anne Reis’ fourth-grade class at Cooperstown Central School, state Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, has introduced legislation – Senate bill 4288 – to designate baseball as New York’s official state sport.

“Baseball is known as our national pastime but the game has deep roots and a rich history here in New York State,” said Senator Seward.

“From the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in storied Cooperstown, to the Mets and Yankees – the pinnacles of Major League Baseball – to our recently crowned Little League World Series champions from Maine-Endwell, New York State is clearly the epicenter of baseball greatness,” said Seward.
