They've been called the "Baby Bombers" and their home-field advantage is on Staten Island.

4 players will compete in the All-Star Game on August 18th in Maryland. They're right-handed pitcher Luis Cedeno, designated hitter Thairo Estrada, and outfielders Jhalan Jackson and Junior Valera. Jackson leads the team in home runs.

The Staten Island Yankees are one of the minor league teams in the Yankee organization. They're the Yankee's Single-A Team  in the New York-Penn League.

They play at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark which is located next door to the Staten Island Ferry terminal. Check out the team website and ticket deals here.

The ballpark hosts many events and theme nights to entertain fans. The team invited PIX11's Greg Mocker, Z100's Shelley Rome and Mike Katz from Staten Island Yankees to judge a talent competition.

A group of dancers called Pink Diamonds won that competition Saturday evening
