On Monday, December 11, the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL), New York’s premier wooden-bat summer league, officially released the schedule for 2018, its eighth season of competition. 

Play is scheduled to begin on Friday, June 1.

This offseason, the PGCBL announced that it would be moving to a three-division alignment, introducing a Central Division that consists of the Adirondack Trail Blazers, Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs, Utica Blue Sox, and the league’s newest franchise, the Watertown Rapids.

The East Division includes the Albany Dutchmen, Amsterdam Mohawks, Glens Falls Dragons, Oneonta Outlaws and Saugerties Stallions. The West is comprised of the Elmira Pioneers, Geneva Red Wings, Jamestown Jammers and Newark Pilots.

Each of the PGCBL’s 13 franchises will play 48 games in 2018 – 24 at home and 24 on the road – with the regular season ending on July 31. The postseason dates and a playoff format will be announced by the league in the near future, as will the location of the 2018 PGCBL All-Star Game that will take place on Wednesday, July 18.

Since its inaugural season in 2011, the PGCBL has expanded its footprint across the state of New York, growing from eight to 13 franchises, many of which play in former minor league markets. In this past year’s MLB First-Year Player Draft, 40 PGCBL alumni were chosen and four alums – Nick Pivetta (Glens Falls/Philadelphia), Mark Leiter, Jr. (Amsterdam/Philadelphia), Jimmy Yacabonis (Elmira/Baltimore) and Tim Locastro (Newark/Los Angeles (NL)) – made their MLB debuts during the 2017 season. PGCBL teams not only bring competitive collegiate baseball to their individual markets, but also provide much needed, affordable family fun and entertainment.

Be sure to follow the PGCBL on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to keep up with the latest news and information on the league and its teams.
