Welcome to the 2023 Salt Cats Website! SEE PLAYERS BELOW


Salt Cats History

The Salt Cats came into the NYCBL in 2010 after playing in the Eastern Collegiate Baseball League for two seasons. We have had several players from several Colleges and Universities located throughout the United States and Canada and have enjoyed the experiences and quality of the soon to be 44 year old New York Collegiate Baseball League. The NYCBL is one of the most historic Collegiate Summer Baseball Leagues in America and is funded by Major League Baseball. All members of the NYCBL belong to  the National Alliance of Collegiate Summer Baseball and are governed by NCAA rules and regulations.  The league is partially funded by Major League Baseball.

The Salt Cats are one of the most active multi-media teams in the NYCBL!
