North Country's Best Bet for Baseball

Listen to this story
If you're looking for family fun on the cheap this summer, your best bet may be to catch a baseball game in Watertown or Glens Falls. Those two cities are the North Country representatives in the New York Collegiate Baseball League. The league's season started over the weekend. The league is for college players trying to make it professionally. They use wooden bats instead of the aluminum bats used in college games. Major league scouts are in the stands. Dozens of the league's players are drafted each year. The league's best known alumni include Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson and Philadelphia Phillies closer Brad Lidge. Commissioner Dave Chamberlain told David Sommerstein many of the league's teams used to play in the "single A" professional New York-Penn league.
