Details came at 2 p.m. Thursday with Mayor Sam Teresi making the call at home plate. Teresi thus made good on his hint that the question of baseball at Diethrick might go “to extra innings” when he commented on the loss of the city’s NY-P franchise two months ago.
More than 175 major league players started in the league which has teams in Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and now New York.
Like the NY-P League the Prospect has a short 60-game schedule. There are two divisions: East and West. Jamestown will be in the East.
Sports Director Matt Hummel will have a feature article on this development upcoming.
