The Salt Cats administration has been working closely with the NYCBL Board of Directors and all Franchises regarding the summer 2020 season in the NYCBL. The league Commissioner and Executive Board have been in constant contact with the National Alliance of Summer Collegiate Baseball as well as MLB.
At this time our league is set to start as scheduled less any civil authority mandates that may be set down from the Federal Government down to local government and whatever other variable that may come into play regarding the season.
The original start date for the league is June 1, 2020 with the Salt Cats opening up on June 4, 2020. These dates may change as we move forward towards the season and may need to be pushed back to start a little later than expected. That will be determined at a later date.
We will continue to update via our website, Facebook and Twitter.
Max Bain a three year starting pitcher for the 16, 17 and 18 Salt Cats has signed with the Chicago Cubs. The 6'6' , 250 pounder was a hammer on the mound for the Salt Cats. As a two year All Star and All NYCBL selection he was one of the league leaders in strikeouts, appearances and innings pitched for the Salt Cats. He hails out of Midland Michigan and is a graduate of Northwood University.
He also played for the Kalamazzo Growlers after the NYCBL seasons had ended and recently starred as a pitcher for the Utica Unicorns of the United Shores Professional Baseball League.
The Staten Island Yankees (New York Yankees - A - NY Penn) will have a new manager in 2020 as Yonkers, New York native Dan Fiorito, Salt Cats 2011 and 2012, will take the helm of the Baby Bombers. Fiorito will be taking over for David Adams, who led Staten Island to a 40-36 record in 2019.
Prior to making his managerial debut in 2019 with the Tampa Yankees (Gulf Coast East - A-), he served as the defensive coach for the Charleston RiverDogs in 2018 and with the Pulaski Yankees in 2017. Before coaching, he played four seasons in the Yankees organization with the Tampa Yankees (A), the Trenton Thunder (AA) and the AAA Scranton Wilkes Barre Railriders.
As a player, Fiorito was a non-drafted free agent out of Manhattanville College in Harrison, New York and appeared in 322 games, most at Double-A. In 1,102 minor league at-bats, he hit .240/.308/.317 with 52 doubles, six triples, seven home runs, and 98 RBIs. Throughout his minor league career, he played at every infield position and pitched in four games. He was a two time All NYCBL selection and two time All Star.
At 29-years-old, Fiorito will be the youngest manager in Staten Island Yankees history a distinction that previously belonged to current Pirates manager Derek Shelton who managed Staten Island in 2001
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 42 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!
