The Batavia Muckdogs have joined the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League. The Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) is a "wooden bat league" - a league comprised of amateur players who play or will play Division I or Division II college baseball.
CAN-USA Sports LLC is excited to be keeping baseball in Batavia! Owners Robbie and Nellie Nichols have secured the rights and a lease to Dwyer Stadium and will bring a Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League team to the city of Batavia for at least the next 5 years.
The league is one of the top-rated summer leagues in the country. The leagues consist of 14 teams: the Adirondack Trail Blazers, Albany Dutchmen, Amsterdam Mohawks, Elmira Pioneers, Geneva Red Wings, Glens Falls Dragons, Jamestown Tarp Skunks, Mohawk Valley Diamond Dawgs, Newark Pilots, Saugerties Stallions, Utica Blue Sox, and the Watertown Rapids. Many players are drafted every year from the PGCBL and many go on to be drafted by the MLB and play for MLB teams.
Dating back to May 14, 1897 Batavia played in the New York State League as the Batavia Giants. Since then, the Batavia franchise joined the PONY League from 1939- 1953 before jumping into the now defunct New York-Penn League since 1957. Though the name has changed over time from Indians to the Pirates then the Trojans and Clippers, Muckdogs baseball has stuck in Batavia.
The storied franchise has had 20 no hitters and two perfect games, four League titles, and six division titles. The alumni who have played here range from World Series Champions to All Stars to NHL and NFL athletes. Dwyer Stadium is and will continue to be an asset to the community. I
