Albany, N.Y. -The state of New York is declaring baseball its official sport.
The move was made official when the legislation was signed by Governor Cuomo.
Governor Cuomo's office says the bill was first proposed by a 4th grade class at Cooperstown Elementary School. Cooperstown of course is the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame and some claim it is where baseball was invented.
Cuomo released a statement celebrating the Yankees 27 championships and the magic of the '69 and '86 Mets, as well as the Giants and Dodgers squads that have since departed for California.
