6th Annual ValleyCats Education Day
As part of their mission to "Create Fans for Life," the ValleyCats will host the youth of the Capital Region for the 6th Annual Education Day at "The Joe" on Wednesday, June 12. The 'Cats will play the Albany Dutchmen of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League, with the game serving as the background to an all-encompassing educational field trip opportunity for local schools.
The game will be used to demonstrate how S.T.E.M. and other academic subjects integrate with the game of baseball, while also providing a platform to educate students on anti-bullying and character development.
The program includes fun activities to educate students in areas such as science, mathematics, history and geography while demonstrating their real-world applications. This includes items on the geometry and dimensions of the field, player statistics and mileage charts for travel between the various cities throughout the New York-Penn League, historical ties to baseball in the Capital Region, and more!
