What's not to love about a good old fashioned baseball game? At the Tri-City ValleyCats games in Troy, NY you experience a whole lot more than just quality baseball. The ValleyCats games are a place where everyone can enjoy the game, not just the die-hard baseball fans!

The Team

The ValleyCats are a Minor League Baseball team and are the Class A Short Season Affiliate of Major League Baseball's Houston Astros. They play home games at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium, or "The Joe" as some fans call it. The stadium is located on the Hudson Valley Community College campus in Troy, NY.

The Stadium

There isn't a bad seat in the house at The Joe! The stadium holds 4,500 people and includes 10 high-end luxury suites, 4 picnic areas for company or group outings, the Top of the Hill Bar & Grill with a private party area called "the Porch," and the "Field of Dreams" area.

The Games

At each ValleyCats game, everyone young and old can enjoy a variety of attractions, entertainment, and promotions that happen throughout the season. Kids will be entertained by the baseball game, as well as the "Kids Zone" where kids can find the Speed Pitch and Bouncy Bounce inflatables among other games. Kids can also look forward to Sunday Funday; a pregame catch and stretch, and a post-game running of the bases plus an autograph session with the ValleyCats!

Planning a party? The stadium also hosts 'Birthday Parties at the Joe' with a choice of three different packages, each including fun, food and souvenirs!

The Fun

At every ValleyCats home game, there is at least one promotion or special event. Some of the favorite promotions include $1 hot dogs, the team poster giveaway, or the bobblehead giveaway.
