The new season for the defending New York-Penn League champion Hudson Valley Renegades began this past weekend with high hopes. This year’s roster is full of fresh, young talent and the players are all eager to improve and get into the swing of things with the season.

This year marks the team’s 25th year in the Hudson Valley. The team is celebrating by updating the uniforms to include a new alternate logo on the hats for the players to don during batting practice.

Out of the 27 players on the roster, only three are returning from last year’s team: pitchers Andrew Gist, Nick Padilla and Blake Pflughaupt. Gist pitched three innings to close out the championship game for the Renegades last season and Padilla and Pflughaupt both were important contributors to the team and its success.

Mike Clum and his team of coordinators at the Eastern New York Summer Classic want to give every youth the opportunity to be a “heavy hitter” in raising and showing livestock.

And their show is geared to do just that.

The fourth annual event, set June 22-23 at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck, is designed for all young people who want to be serious about learning the facts involved in raising and showing livestock – and winning some serious prize money. It is part of a livestock show circuit that also includes events in Western New York.

“This is the future of agriculture in our area,” said Clum, the show director. “Our goal is to promote agriculture and increase the interest of young people in all facets of livestock. It includes showmanship, type classes and detailed education in raising and showing market lambs, swine and beef cattle.”
