Congrats to Nick Balcom RHP (FLCC/ AIC). Will Cooper RHP (McMurry U), Jared Reminder RHP ( St. Anselm College) and Jay Murdock (Georgia Highlands / Pensacola St.) on being selected to the 2023 All NYCBL end of the season team.
Over all, in all games played, Balcom, Cooper and Reminder combined for 118 K's over 84.2 innings. They combined for an overall record of 11-5. The Average batting average against opponents was .189.
Murdock hit .348 over the course of the 50 game season (41 games played) seeing 153 plate appearance and 132 AB's. He had 46 Hits, 5 doubles, 2 triples and 2 Home Runs. He also had a team leading 32 RBI's. He only K's 14 times.
In a last minute determination relative to a tie breaker rule the Salt Cats were eliminated from the 2023 Eastern Division playoffs.
As the regular season ended the Cats were up by 2 points over the Sherrill Silversmiths, however the league permitted the Silversmiths and the Horseheads HItmen to play two games after the season had ended.
The Silversmiths won the first game, thus tying the Salt Cats for the third place spot. The second game was awarded to the Silversmiths due to a forfeit.
The tie breaker initially was between the Salt Cats and Sherrill where the head to head was tied. The next tie breaker was game wins against "The next best team" in the division. That would be Cortland where the Salt Cats beat the Crush more times than Sherrill did.
At the end of the day, the "next best team in the division" was ruled to be Rochester and not Cortland.
Although inquiry was made the Case for the Salt Cats fell on deaf ears and so went the summer of 2023.
Thank you to the players, players families, sponsors and all staff for making our summer 2023 season a season to remember.

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!
