Yankees’ Farm Team To Play 2012 Home Games On Road

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — The New York Yankees’ top farm team is hitting the road for its home games next year, playing most of them at Frontier Field in Rochester, N.Y.

Officials say Friday that 37 of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees games will be played at Frontier, home of the Minnesota Twins’ Triple-A affiliate, the Red Wings.

Red Wings general manager Dan Mason says the Yankees had hoped to find one temporary home while Scranton’s PNC Field gets a $40 million makeover, but that didn’t work out.

The remaining 35 home games will be split among Coca-Cola Field in Buffalo; Coca-Cola Park in Lehigh Valley, Pa.; Alliance Bank Stadium in Syracuse; McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, R.I.; and Dwyer Stadium in Batavia. With 10, Syracuse will get the most.

Mason says ticket prices haven’t been set yet.
