SALT CATS 2022 SEASON COMES TO AN END!

The 2022 Salt Cats season officially came to an end Monday night as the Spartans defeated the Salt Cats 8-1 in the Eastern Division Wild Card Game. Just one day after beating their crosstown rivals 2-1 in 10 innings to earn home-field in this game, the final edition of the Salt City Showdown of the summer went to the Spartans, who dominated from start to finish to earn the right to play the top-seeded Cortland Crush in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Jake Baldini was the first of six pitchers to toe the slab for the hosts, giving up five runs while falling one out short of four full innings. No pitcher was truly able to contain the Spartans offense, who hit through the order in the fourth to take the seven run lead. The Salt Cats only run came via a Bryce Richey RBI walk with the bases loaded in the fifth to make the game score 7-1 for a moment before the visitors got that run back the next half inning.

The Salt Cats season ends with an NYCBL regular season record of 19-20-3, 41 points and second place in a tough NYCBL East. The Spartans get revenge after losing last year’s Wild Card Game 2-1. The Salt Cats were 21-24-5 overall,

The team and Coaching staff would like to thank our fans, sponsors and players families for their constant support and help throughout the season.

A special thanks goes out Dr. Pisik for his never ending work in taking care of the Salt Cats on a daily basis and to Director of Concessions,Karen Pisik who ran our concession stand throughout the season.   

A special thank you to our Director of Baseball Operations, Joe Miczan for his efforts during the season. He was the Go to Guy for sure.

The team would also extend a sincere thank you to our Game Day Operations staff of Supervisor, Kathee-Dobe Call, Jake Hickok, Izzy Lambert and Paul Miller. Job well done!

Finally, special thanks to the best Game Day broadcast crew in the NYCBL which included Austin Platt, Gio Heater and Will Hentschel, The Cats wish you all well as we move forward in preparation for the 2021 NYCBL season.
