“We are excited to announce the first two franchises of the East Coast Baseball League,” said Commissioner Shawn Whiteley. “We have worked hard over the last few months with both the city of Newburgh, NY and Welland, Ontario to form an agreement to bring independent professional baseball back to both cities.”
Delano-Hitch Stadium and Welland Stadium are both well kept baseball stadiums that have seating capacity of over 2,000. Both communities deserve to have professional baseball teams to cheer for again.
The ‘Name the Team Contest” for each team will begin tomorrow August 21st and end September 2nd. The teams new name, colours and logo(s) will be announced at the end of September. You can send in your team name idea to email@example.com
Season Tickets for the 2015 season will go on sale on September 1st. Other franchises of the East Coast Baseball league will be announced in the coming months.
