The Staten Island Yankees have clinched the 2016 New York-Penn League wildcard and are postseason bound.The #BabyBombers are heading to the postseason as the NYPL Wild Card! #Seeking7 pic.twitter.com/ylk3Ac7BUF— StatenIslandYankees (@SIYanks) September 4, 2016
This means that the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders (triple-A), Trenton Thunder (double-A), Tampa Yankees (high-A), Charleston Riverdogs (single-A) and Staten Island Yankees (short season-A) are ALL headed to the playoffs in their respective leagues. FIVE MiLB affiliates are headed to their respective postseasons. While the quad-A Yankees probably aren't getting to their postseason, the fact that FIVE MiLB Yankees teams made it to their postseasons is incredible.
The 2016 MiLB season is going to wrap up soon (if it hasn't already for some teams). Then the playoffs start. Next week (or the week after in some cases) will be fun for Yankees organization fans like me.
As always thanks for stopping by take care :).
