Quigley Stadium - Post 2000 Era

It was in 1972 when the Yankees moved their Double-A franchise from Manchester New Hampshire’s historic Gill Stadium (built in 1913) and into Quigley Stadium (built 1947) of West Haven Connecticut. The Yankees would spend a rather lengthy 8 years at this ballpark before moving south to Nashville’s Herschel Greer Stadium of the Southern League. While they were here, quite a few well major impact players and Major League All-Stars were produced from this ballpark. The 1972 team did particularly well finishing the season behind an 84-56 (.600) record, thanks in part to the managing skills of a soon to be Hall of Fame Manager by the name of Bobby Cox. Cox was still working his way up through Double-A ball at this point, and would go on to lead the Atlanta Braves through a several year dynasty in the National League East.
