Ivan Pereira is reporting for AM New York baseball may become New York's official sport of choice. State Sen. James L. Seward, who represents Cooperstown, introduced a bill last week that would name the national pastime the official sport of New York state. Seward first introduced the bill during the previous legislative session. He said New York is rich with baseball history, from the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown to the Yankees, Dodgers, Giants, Mets and other teams that currently or previously called it home. "New York and baseball go hand in hand and elevating the sport to official state status is overdue," he said. The measure was approved by the state Senate last year, but failed in the Assembly. Fourteen other state legislatures have adopted official state sports, including California and Massachusetts who claim surfing and basketball, respectively. Read the full story at amny.com.
