[edit] Team History

After the 2011 the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees homefield PNC Field was renovated causing the team to play the entire 2012 season on the road while calling itself the Empire State Yankees. The team rebranded itself as the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders when it returned to the newly renovated PNC Field in 2013. On April 6th, they made national news when fireworks set off at a game started a forest fire in a wooded area behind the outfield fence.

In 2016, the RailRiders won their first International League championship and then defeated the El Paso Chihuahuas, champions of the Pacific Coast League in the 2016 Triple-A Baseball National Championship, 3-1.
