STATEN ISLAND - The Staten Island Yankees and Chick-fil-A have partnered up for the 2019 season.

"Scooter the Holy Cow has been bugging us to form a partnership with Chick-fil-A since they opened in September," said Will Smith, Staten Island Yankees President/Operating Partner. "One of Scooter's new friends was able to visit to Richmond County Bank Ballpark recently. It was a match made in heaven."
The cameras were rolling when the Chick-fil-A cow recently visited Scooter the Holy Cow at Richmond County Bank Ballpark at St. George.
