New York Penn League Announces 2019 Hall of Fame Inductees

The following individuals comprise the New York‐Penn League’s 2019 Hall of Fame Class:

Gene Baker- A man of firsts, Baker played a significant role in the history of the New York-Penn League and baseball in general when he broke the managerial color barrier by becoming the first African-American manager in organized baseball, when the Pittsburgh Pirates named him skipper of the Batavia club in 1961.

In 1963, he became the second black coach in the major leagues following Buck O’Neill by a half -season. He can also be credited with being the first black manager in Major League Baseball when he took over for ejected Pirates manager Danny Murtaugh on September 21, 1963.

Jane Rogers‐ As the first person hired by the Staten Island Yankees in 1999, Jane Rogers has been with the club for the entirety of its twenty-year history in New York City.

Originally hired as the organization’s office manager, Jane has progressed through various roles, including that of General Manager, and her current position as Senior Vice-President, Baseball Operations. Her tireless efforts leading the organization, and in particular the club’s relationship with the New York Yankees, have led to strong relationships with players and front office administrators alike.

In addition, Rogers has been an important contributor to the Staten Island community and the New York-Penn League as a whole.

Josiah Viera‐ Josiah was born with Hutchinson-Guilford progeria, a rapid aging condition. His joyous spirit and enthusiasm was a source of inspiration for players, coaches, staff and fans. During his time as the Spikes’ honorary bench coach, Josiah helped propel the club to three Pinckney Division titles and New York-Penn League championships in 2014 and 2016.

Late in 2018, Josiah passed away at the age of 14. While he is greatly missed by every member of the Spikes and the New York-Penn League family, Josiah’s spirit remains as a shining example of determination and perseverance in the game of baseball and the game of life.

Bernie Williams‐ Williams hit .344 as a member of the 1987 Oneonta Yankees playing in 25 games before a promotion to Ft. Lauderdale. He made his Major League debut with the N.Y. Yankees on July 7, 1991 and would go on to play his entire 16 year MLB career in pinstripes. In his 16 seasons he collected 2,336 hits, 449 doubles, 287 HR and 1,257 RBI to go along with a lifetime batting average of .297. He is a four-time World Series champion and the all-time leader in postseason RBI with 80.
