Hudson Valley Renegades
1500 Rte. 9D, Wappingers Falls 845-838-0094
Of course, the Brooklyn Cyclones and their fancy Coney Island KeySpan Park stadium are hard to beat—but the whole experience can feel a bit on the corporate side (again, it’s called KeySpan Park). For a small-town taste of what minor-league baseball should be like, drive an hour and a half north to Wappingers Falls and check out the Hudson Valley Renegades. The stadium is simple, the tickets are cheap, and you’re almost guaranteed to get a seat behind home plate if you want it.
