The New York Yankees may not want anyone to take their iPads out to the ball game, but one minor league team is giving iPad-toting fans free tickets.

Every Monday night is “iPad Monday” for the Hudson Valley Renegades. If you were turned away from the gate by those snobby Yankees who apparently don’t want their shiny new $1.5 billion stadium tarnished by digital toys, just hop in the car for a hour-long drive to Dutchess Stadium in Wappingers Falls, NY. There you’ll be greeted with open arms and a free general admission ticket (while supplies last) to the game.

The Renegades are a short-season Class A ball club, and they’re definitely embracing the digital age. Not only will you and your iPad find a welcoming smile at “The Dutch,” but the team is also going to help you set up or update the Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare accounts on your iPad. That way, you’ll be able to tell your other cyber-buddies about the nice free ticket you’re enjoying while they’re sucking down $10 beers at Yankee Stadium.
