    It looks like Xavier was correct, Jamestown is now in the PGCBL. I know that Butler might’ve been 110 miles away, but now the Jammers are within a few hundred miles of more than just one team. There is no way that a team to be successful having to travel from upstate New York all the way to the Mississippi River.

    Jamestown in the PGCBL would be a perfect fit for the team. The location was quite far from the majority of the Mid-west teams. I hope the Jammers are indeed switching leagues for 2016.

      Jamestown’s not really the greatest geographical fit for the PGCBL, either – while on average their opponents are closer than in the Prospect League, the nearest other clubs, Elmira and Victor, are still 150 miles away.

      At least Butler in the Prospect League was less than that – about 110 miles.

        Beats driving to Kokomo, I guess. I feel bad for Butler. They finally had a travel partner (sort of).

    I didn’t understand why Jamestown didn’t move to the NYCBL or PGCBL in the first place.

    It looks like Zimmerman has traded in Jamestown for Lafayette. I wonder if he is ditching Jamestown or trying to move it into the PGCBL or NYCBL with a more economical footprint?
