Yankees, MLB facing trial against former Staten Island minor-league affiliate, as judge denies motion to dismiss breach of contract claim

Sep 10, 2021

While the Yankees no longer hold an affiliation with Staten Island, they haven’t fully extracted themselves from their business in the outer borough.

New York State Supreme Court judge Barry Ostrager on Thursday dismissed seven of the eight causes of action in a $20 million-plus lawsuit filed against the Yankees and Major League Baseball last December by Nostalgic Partners, the consortium that owned the Staten Island Yankees from 2011 until the team’s dissolution last winter. The one cause of action that stood, which moves the case to trial, concerns Nostalgic’s contention that the Yankees breached a contract with the group.
