They are an Advanced Rookie League team in the Appalachian League, and became a farm team of the New York Yankees in 2015.[2] The team plays its home games at Calfee Park.

Pulaski baseball history

Pulaski's teams won the Appalachian League's championship in 1948, 1969, 1986, 1991 and 2013.

Pulaski was the 2010 Appalachian League Eastern Division Champion.

Ballpark

The Pulaski Yankees play at Calfee Park. Calfee Park opened in 1935 and has a capacity of 2,500 fans. A number of houses that surround the park have good views of games. The director of stadium operations is Dave Hart and the head groundskeeper is Gary Martin.

The park had major renovations prior to the 1999 season, with a new grandstand behind the plate and along the first-base side as well as "open-air suites" (railed-in areas with picnic tables) farther down on the first-base line. A new scoreboard was also installed.
