Ground broken on Yanks' Triple-A home
NEW YORK -- A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Monday at PNC Field in Moosic, Pa., the home of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, as the club's home is refurbished before its anticipated re-opening in 2013.

Representatives from the Yankees, the Lackawanna County Commissioner's Office and Mandalay Baseball joined the Multi-Purpose Authority, the construction team, state officials and Moosic and Riverside officeholders for the event.

With its home field shuttered, the Triple-A club is mostly calling upstate New York home, having been temporarily rebranded as the Empire State Yankees. Thirty-seven of the club's home games are being played in Rochester, N.Y., with other "home" contests also played in Batavia, N.Y., Buffalo, N.Y., Syracuse, N.Y., Allentown, Pa., and Pawtucket, R.I.
