PRESS RELEASE – The Staten Island Yankees are pleased to introduce their new ownership group, Nostalgic Partners LLC. The group, comprised of four principal owners, is determined to foster a strong connection between the Staten Island Yankees, the New York Yankees and the Staten Island community through an increased presence and by rejuvenating the experience at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark.
Fans can expect the family-friendly atmosphere to continue, while off-season changes will enhance their experience at the ballpark.

Jane, along with the Nostalgic Partners LLC, will be visible and philanthropic members of the community, not only on Staten Island, but throughout New York City.
The New York Yankees have maintained an ownership interest in the club, and they, along with Nostalgic Partners LLC are determined to ensure that Staten Island Yankees fans will continue to see future Major League stars in an intimate environment, with a breathtaking view of the Manhattan Skyline, right here on Staten Island for many years to come.
