The 2018 Annual New York State Knights of Columbus Yankee Game will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2018. The game begins at 1:05 pm EST. The event will be held at Yankees Stadium in the Bronx, New York. While parking is available (for a separate price based on where you park) mass transit or car pooling is suggested.
A portion of every ticket sold will go to Catholic education in several dioceses including the Archdiocese of Brooklyn and Rockville in New York State. A free Yankee cap with the Knights of Columbus logo will also be provided for all who purchase tickets. Limited time left to purchase tickets so please don’t wait as this one sells out fast!
