Tri-City Red's remarkable 1999 season has been permanently recognized by the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY. Not only was a Tri-City cap and jersey, as well as the National Championship team picture, on display in Cooperstown during calendar year 2000, but Tri-City Red's name has been permanently inscribed on the Hall of Fame's "Youth Baseball Wall of Fame." (Click on the following thumbnail photos to view larger images; click on the "Back" button of your internet browser to return to this page.)
Congratulations to all Tri-City Red players, parents, coaches and volunteers for earning a permanent home within the walls of the building that houses and recognizes baseball's greatest players, teams and achievements. It is certainly an honor to be cherished -- and a legacy to be enjoyed by future generations of family, friends, and members of our community.
Minnesota Twins Honor Tri-City Red at Twins Game; Mark Paone Throws Out First Pitch
On September 8, 1999, the Minnesota Twins honored Tri-City Red as the 1999 American Legion World Series Champion by hosting a special pregame dinner and awards ceremony. At this ceremony, the team was awarded with special recognition by several Minnesota cities and counties, who had officially proclaimed the day as "Tri-City Red Day." Then, immediately prior to the Twins game, the team was honored on the field of the Metrodome, with each player being congratulated by Twins' personalities, including Tom Kelly, and receiving a signed, congratulatory certificate from the Twins. Mark Paone, Tri-City Coach, had the priviledge of throwing out the game's first pitch, as well as being a special on-air guest in the Twins broadcast booth during the course of the game.
Tri-City Red Honored at Major League Baseball World Series in Atlanta
As 1999 American Legion National Champs, the Tri-City Red team was flown to Atlanta to attend the first two games of the 1999 Major League World Series between the Atlanta Braves and the New York Yankees at Turner Field. There, they were honored by Major League Baseball for the accomplishment of winning their own World Series.
The first game, held on Saturday, October 23, 1999, the Yankees beat the Braves, 4-1. New York also prevailed during the second game on Sunday, October 24th, winning 7-2. The Yankees ultimately swept the Braves, winning the Series in only four games.
