Yanks & ACC Announce Six Year Deal For Pinstripe Bowl

The New York Yankees and the ACC have announce a six year pact for the yearly Pinstripe Bowl played at Yankees Stadium every year. The New Era Pinstripe Bowl is played in December every season and will include an ACC team for the next six seasons at least and will play a team from the Big Ten conference.

This partnership started way back in the early 1980's when Jenny Steinbrenner, daughter of George Steinbrenner, was attending the University of North Carolina for her college years. George brought the Yankees down to UNC to play an exhibition game three of the four years Jenny was enrolled there. The UNC athletic director, John Swofford, is now the commissioner of the ACC and has not forgotten the generosity given to them from George.

This is hopefully the beginning of a great partnership and the attendance and hype over the New Era Pinstripe Bowl will continue to grow.
