No baseball will be played at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark tonight and rightly so. Minor League Baseball is paying special tribute to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by not scheduling any games for today. The Staten Island Yankees hope to never play baseball on this date again because of the ballpark’s proximity to the site of the World Trade Center. A memorial was erected outside the left field fence of the stadium and it outlines where the two towers formerly stood.
