Watertown And Cooperstown Out, Saugerties And Victor In PGCBL

The PGCBL will look different this summer with the addition of teams in Saugerties, NY and Victor, NY. The Watertown Rams and Cooperstown Hawkeyes will no longer be a part of the league. 

The team in Saugerties, NY will be known as the Sauagerties Stallions while the team in Victor has yet to announce a team name.

It was also announced this past fall that the Glen Falls Golden Eagles will be now known as the Dragons.

The addition of the three new teams to the league is a sort of re-branding for a league which has risen in the ranks of the best summer collegiate summer leagues in the country.

It's also important to note that new teams will have geographic rivals with Victor, NY being located 30 minutes from Newark, NY home of the Newark Pilots. While both Saugerties, NY and Glens Falls, NY are located 45 minutes from Albany, NY home of the Albany Dutchmen.

The new teams shrink the geographic size of the league which will lower travel costs for fans and increase attendance in the league.

The excitement of new teams will also attract better college players from across the country making the quality of baseball better.
