ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Five minor league baseball teams have agreed to feature New York agricultural products at ballparks across the state.

Following a successful partnership with Tri-City ValleyCats in 2015, Taste NY is expanding into four other stadiums. They are the Batavia Muckdogs, Auburn Doubledays, Staten Island Yankees and Rochester Red Wings.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office says the stadiums see approximately 820,000 seasonal visitors who will now get hot dogs, hamburgers and beer sourced from New York state producers.
