The league gives college players the opportunity to develop their skills at a higher level of play, gain experience with wood bats, and be evaluated by scouts. Teams play 40-46 games. The Salt Cats won their first title as Eastern Division champions with a record of 29-17. Congratulations Luke and best of luck in your second year at Binghamton University.
