The Boulders Next Weekend


We are back in live action next weekend as our next visit is one that is relatively close-by. Just an hour drive from me is Rockland County, NY and this residential, suburban area NW of NYC is home to the Rockland Boulders of the Can-AM League. Their ballpark (now called Palisades Credit Union Park) is five years old and it is also at the center of a federal investigation. Despite strong opposition from voters, Ramapo town leaders went ahead and constructed this ballpark with the cost ballooning to $60 million. Now, the main character in this fiasco was recently arrested in a federal indictment, where he basically lied about the financial status of the town. It’s not a good situation…but baseball continues to be played at the ballpark and I will be in town to check out the Boulders next Saturday (May 21) for a 6:30 PM game against Sussex County. Despite the financial troubles, we’ll see how the stadium and experience is for this independent franchise.
