About the Rochester Red Wings

The Rochester Red Wings have been affiliated with the Minnesota Twins since 2003. Earlier this month, the Twins called off the relationship earlier this month and are expected to pair with the St. Paul Saints, an independent league team. 

The Red Wings play at Frontier Field, which opened for baseball on April 11, 1997. Since its opening, Frontier Field has hosted two Governors’ Cup Championship Series in 1997 and 2006. The Red Wings defeated the Columbus Clippers (Yankees) 3 games to 2 in the 1997 series, clinching at home for their 10th International League Governors’ Cup title. The Wings then lost to the Toledo Mud Hens (Tigers) 3 games to 2 in the 2006 series.

Frontier Field hosted the 2000 Triple-A All-Star Game, an 8-2 win by the Pacific Coast League All-Stars over the IL All-Stars on July 12 before 12,810 fans and a nation-wide television audience on ESPN2. The Red Wings had three representatives at the hometown game: Javier De La Hoya, Karim Garcia, and Josh Towers.  

Recently, Frontier Field served as the home ballpark for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, while PNC Field in Moosic, Pennsylvania, underwent a season-long renovation. The Yankees played 38 regular-season home games at Frontier, as well as two post-season contests. The Yankees were initially scheduled to play 37 home games at Frontier Field. Still, they added a game on May 6 when it was decided that New York Yankees’ left-handed pitcher Andy Pettitte would be making a rehabilitation start. The game switched locations from Dwyer Stadium in nearby Batavia to Frontier Field in downtown Rochester. The game established a Frontier Field record for a regular-season baseball game with 13,584 in attendance.
