Albany Dutchmen move to new stadium

The move to Plumeri gives the Dutchmen the newest complex in the entire league. Finished in September of 2010, the Plumeri complex was the result of $6 million dollars worth of renovation and is home to the St. Rose Golden Knights during the non-summer months. It is located in what was formally known as Hoffman Park, on Frisbie and McCarty avenues at the foot of I-787 in Albany.

"The facilities at Bellizzi Stadium are the perfect home for summer baseball," explained Brinkman. "And with its ideal location and ample off-street parking, it will be even easier for fans to come out and enjoy an evening of fun and exciting, affordable entertainment."

It's an exciting time for the Dutchmen and one that couldn't have happened if it wasn't for the relationship with the city. "We truly believe that this will be an agreement that not only benefits us, but the city of Albany as well," stated Dutchmen President and Co-Owner, Paul Samulski. "It wouldn't have been possible without the help of Mayor Jennings and city officials like John D'Antonio, Bob VanAmburgh, and Michelina Copozzolo Wojton. Not to mention the College of St. Rose for helping open up the complex to us, specifically President Mark Sullivan and VP Marcus Buckley. We're looking forward to showcasing the talent of our players in the new facilities.""
