Home Run for Renegades with New Stadium Name
It’s a whole new ballgame for BCW Member Hudson Valley Renegades whose home at Dutchess Stadium has been renamed Heritage Financial Park as the result of Heritage Financial Credit Union acquiring naming rights to the stadium.
The new name for the stadium was announced during a March 21 event that featured the team’s management, representatives of Heritage Financial, county officials and other guests. Heritage is based in Middletown. The Renegades, who are the High-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, have called Dutchess Stadium their home since it opened in 1994. The stadium, which is located on Route 9D in the Town of Fishkill, opened for its first season of baseball in 1994.
“In baseball terms, Heritage Financial Credit Union is a five-tool player, and we are honored to welcome them into the Renegades family!” said Tyson Jeffers, General Manager of the Renegades. “From our first conversation, it was clear that HFCU shares in our fan-first, community-first culture, and is dedicated to making a difference in monumental ways. We look forward to Heritage being by our side as we execute our long-term vision of expanding our community outreach, improving our customer experience and making Heritage Financial Park the premier venue of the Hudson Valley!”
“When we purchased the Renegades over a year ago, our vision was a big one and we are thrilled that we have found a partner who shares that enthusiasm for the future in Hudson Valley,” said Peter Freund, CEO of Diamond Baseball. “We cannot wait to rename the stadium Heritage Financial Park as it undergoes the largest construction project in its history.”
In addition to the renaming of the facility, Heritage Financial Credit Union will also sponsor several new community engagements and fan experience initiatives at the ballpark.
