A new baseball team in the North Country is giving young players a shot at playing professional baseball. We’ll talk with a former SUNY Plattsburgh All-Star who is back in town playing for the Plattsburgh RedBirds and hoping to get noticed by pro scouts.
We’ll hear from the Empire Pro Baseball League president, Eddie Gongzalez, on why they chose Plattsburgh as the location for their new team.
Gonzalez also talks about the RedBirds co-owner, Matt Joyce, who is a major league outfielder with the Oakland Athletics. The team is also looking for volunteers for next season to be host families for the players.
