  1. summer collegiate baseball fan

    Trust me. The NECBL are amateurs with no stability. The Old Orchard Beach team spent just one year there and failed just like they did where they were the year before that. The NECBL doesn’t care and works hard to maintain medIocrity. OOB deserved better and so does Pittsfield
