America's New National Park

Hinchliffe StadiumOn Friday, December 19, President Obama signed legislation to add Hinchliffe Stadium, the historic home of the NY Black Yankees and NY Cubans in Negro League baseball, to the Paterson Great Falls National Park. Hinchliffe played a central role in Paterson's cultural history and now will be a permanent part of the National Park System. This has been one of our top priorities and we are proud to have played a role in helping our NJ congressional delegation make it happen.
