The Staten Island Yankees Are Your NYPL Champions

Last night, the Staten Island Yankees topped the Auburn Doubledays, 2–1, to complete a sweep of the New York–Penn League's three-game Championship Series and clinch their second title in three years. (It's Staten Island's sixth championship since their inaugural season in 1999.) And if you're wondering how a team with so many players under the legal drinking age celebrates a championship, the recap of the night on the team's website provides the answer:

Once the players hit the locker room, the sparkling apple cider flowed freely and the party really started. Players danced as they passed around the silver trophy, others dove head-first and slid from one doorway to another. Some threw handfuls of ice in between bear hugs. 

Party on, Staten Island. Party on.
