Baseball is back in Niagara Falls
We have been told that Sal Maglie Stadium has gotten a really nice facelift, and this season will be the host venue for a NEW baseball team... the Niagara Power of the New York Collegiate Baseball League. Their season begins on Friday June 8.
Tim Schmitt at the Niagara Gazette gives us the poop with today's article.
Here's another bulletin... Peter grew up cheering for his dear Elmira Pioneers at beautiful historic Dunn Field in Elmira, his childhood team which once played at AA, then in the NY-Penn League, before going into the Independent Northern League. That team is also long gone, but the current version of the Pioneers now play in the NYCBL.
Hmm...I'm checking the schedule and I don't have to look far.. Elmira Pioneers at Niagara Power, Sunday, June 10 at 7PM. Got the calendar already circled...and if you do go on that date and see some shirtless guy in the stands wearing a Davy Crockett style hat, his face painted in Pioneers blue and gray, and "GO PIOS" emblazoned on his chest, stop on by and say "Hi Peter!"
