2015 Highlight Video

This will only take three minutes of your day and be well-worth it.  Revolution multi-media coordinator Scott Parker put together this 2015 season highlight reel.  Great defensive plays, walk-off home runs, and the visit from National Champion Red Land Little League on the final day of the season made the 2015 home schedule at Santander Stadium an all-timer.

And, as you could probably guess, Revolution all-time hit leader and 2015 team triple crown winner Andres Perez figures prominently.


New for 2016: Revolution 10th Anniversary Logos


When the York Revolution suits up for its 10th season in the Atlantic League in April, the fans will literally be on the field with the players. Or pictures of the fans, at least.

This fall, the organization will make several announcements leading up to Opening Day 2016 (April 28) about plans for the 10th anniversary season of Revolution baseball.

The first such announcement came in August, when online fan voting began to determine the York Revolution 10th Anniversary Team, which will last until February when the team is announced. Former players elected to the team will be honored in-person on opening day. Fans may vote an unlimited number of times by clicking here.

The next step is also fan-interactive, as the Revolution are asking fans to submit their favorite fan photos via the team’s social media channels, which will be used to comprise the back numerals on a special 10th anniversary jersey the team will wear exclusively for Friday night home games in 2016. The jerseys will be auctioned off to fans at season’s end.

Ian Thomas is first former Rev to play on an MLB playoff-clinching squad

Dodgers clinch

When the Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the National League West on September 29, former York Revolution pitcher Ian Thomas (’12) was a part of the clubhouse celebration, a member of the Dodgers expanded September roster.  Thomas is the first former Rev to be on an MLB roster when that team clinched a playoff spot.

Last season, former Revs catcher Octavio Martinez (’11), who is in his third season as a member of the Washington Nationals Major League coaching staff, was a part of their NL East clinching celebration, but it’s Thomas who will hold the distinction of being the first Rev to enjoy a big league champagne and Budweiser shower.  Thomas is the second former York player to be part of an MLB playoff team at any point in the season; last year RHP Julio DePaula (’13-’15) was on the Orioles Major League roster for one game, but not with the club when they celebrated clinching the AL East.

Mikey Reynolds’ contract purchased by Cardinals

Reynolds Cardinals - Copy

The York Revolution has announced the Atlantic League contract of infielder Mikey Reynolds has been purchased by the St. Louis Cardinals. It marks the first time in the nine-year history of the Revolution that St. Louis has purchased the contract of a York player in-season, and Reynolds is the second former Rev to join the Cardinals organization.

Reynolds joined York shortly after the 2015 season began, signing with the Revolution on April 28 after his rights were acquired from the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks of the American Association a day earlier. Reynolds quickly became a fixture in the Revs lineup as the club’s primary leadoff man, with his average ascending to .346 by May 25. On that date however, Reynolds sustained a broken thumb on his throwing hand on a ground ball, and the injury sidelined him nearly seven weeks, as he returned to the lineup July 11.

Thank you fans for a great 2015 season!

The video above is just a small token of our appreciation for what was a wonderful ninth season in Downtown York.  You may have heard rumblings by now, but big things are in store for next season when we’ll celebrate our 10th anniversary.  (CLICK HERE to vote for the 10th Anniversary team.)  As usual, Revolution fans were the truth during the 2015 season, and right through the final series against Somerset.  The second to last game of the season September 19 drew a season-high 6,291 fans to Santander Stadium (11-6 win), and a day later the season ended with the third-largest crowd of 2015, when the Little League National Champions from Red Land were in the house in front of 6,053 (7-3 win).

It says a lot about the fans when two of your three 6,000-plus crowds for the season are on the final two days when the team is out of the playoff race, but our most fervent fans know better than anyone the second half Revs were a much different club than the first half this season:

Former Revolution outfielder Shannon Wilkerson wins Double-A Championship with Chattanooga Lookouts

Nooga wins 2

When the Minnesota Twins purchased the contract of Shannon Wilkerson from the York Revolution on July 9, it marked the first time a former Rev went to work for that organization.  Upon his assignment to the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts of the Southern League, each party took full advantage of the transaction, as the Lookouts won their first championship since 1988 on September 21, defeating the Biloxi Shuckers (Brewers) 4-0 in the deciding Game 5 of the series.

Chattanooga rallied from a 2-1 series deficit, winning Games 4 and 5 at home to secure their first Southern League title in 27 seasons.  Wilkerson, who immediately moved into an everyday role with his new club as their center fielder, batting either lead-off or ninth, was a big factor in the series going 7-for-19 (.368)  with an RBI and a run.  In nine postseason games, Wilkerson hit .303 with five RBI and five runs scored.  To advance to the finals, Chattanooga dispatched the Montgomery Biscuits (Rays), in four games.

Prior to the game on September 19, York Revolution infielder Andres Perez was presented with the organization’s Most Valuable Player award for the 2015 season, by Team President Eric Menzer and Manager Mark Mason.  All Perez did to celebrate the occasion was go 4-for-5 with a two-run double and a three-run homer, and his six total RBI helped the Revs beat Somerset 11-6 in the penultimate game of the season.  The Saturday night crowd at Santander Stadium was a season-high 6,291.

In his third season as a Rev, Perez has re-written a good portion of the York record book. On July 19 at Lancaster, he became the Revolution all-time hit leader with his 384th in franchise history, and sits at 465 career hits with York after September 19.  That’s now 82 more hits than the man Perez passed, James Shanks (383).

Perez is also the career-Revolution leader in doubles (105), extra-base hits (163), total bases (738), games played (395) and at-bats (1556). His 248 RBI in a Revs uniform makes him the all-time franchise leader in that category as well.  (The night Perez became the franchise RBI leader August 14 at Bridgeport, he also drove in six runs, in a 3-for-6 effort, also with a double and a homer in a 13-5 win.)  Perez is currently second on the Revolution career home run list; his 16 this season makes for a total of 52, seven shy of Chris Nowak’s 59.
