Bringing Manhattan baseball back to the Bronx will not only strengthen the college’s presence in the Riverdale and Bronx communities, but it will also elevate the strong ties that our team has locally. Enhancing the student-athlete experience is always at the forefront for the athletic department, and to be able to partner with local sports as well, makes this venture a true win- win.
