Jaspers’ story stretches backwards and forwards

The Manhattan Jaspers, one of the oldest baseball program in the country, is today led by Coach Mike Cole.

He has been very successful in other college coaching stints and is building Jasper Baseball back into a power in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

From 2002–14, Manhattan College played at nearby Van Cortlandt Park and amassed an incredible 167- 52 record. That is an astonishing .759 winning percentage on home turf.

Unfortunately, the conditions of the Van Cortlandt ball field deteriorated over the years and did not meet NCAA Division 1 standards.

It forced the Jaspers to seek out a new home far away from home. They found that home at the Dutchess County Stadium in Wappinger Falls where they have been playing for several years.
