The Hudson Valley Renegades are a Minor League Baseball team and the High-A affiliate of the New York Yankees and are scheduled to play in the upcoming High-A East. The Renegades play their home games at Dutchess Stadium in Wappingers Falls, New York. From 1994 to 2020, the team competed in the Class A Short Season New York–Penn League.

In 1994, the Erie Sailors, affiliates of the Texas Rangers, moved to the Hudson Valley, becoming the Renegades. They became an affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays organization in 1996. They will become an affiliate of the New York Yankees beginning in 2021.[2]

The Renegades won three New York–Penn League championships (1999, 2012, and 2017). The organization has produced major leaguers such as Scott Podsednik, Jorge Cantu, Ryan Dempster, Joe Kennedy, Craig Monroe, Matt Diaz, Evan Longoria, Josh Hamilton, John Jaso, Wade Davis, and Toby Hall.[3] Doug Waechter threw the only no-hitter in Renegades history on August 10, 2000, against the Pittsfield Mets. Scott Podsednik became the first former Renegade to win a World Series with the Chicago White Sox defeating a Houston Astros club which included former Renegades Brandon Backe and Dan Wheeler. On August 14, 2007, The Renegades hosted the third annual New York–Penn League All-Star Game at Dutchess Stadium.

Team promotions include a "Fun Team" that promotes between-inning entertainment. Marvin Goldklang is the team's majority owner. Goldklang also has stakes in several other minor league baseball teams, including the Charleston RiverDogs and St. Paul Saints. Ex-manager Matt Quatraro coined the name Gades in 2000. Their mascots are raccoons: Rookie (the Renegade) Raccoon, Rookie's wife Rene Gade, Rascal (Rookie & Rene's son), and occasionally, Rookie's father Roofus.

In conjunction with Major League Baseball's restructuring of Minor League Baseball in 2021, the Renegades were organized into the 12-team High-A East.[4]
