For some background to this post, check out this piece from a couple weeks back. I’ll cover as many summer teams as I can between now and the start of conference play, and take a look at how some of their players are faring nationally and locally, as well as their fans’ local viewing options right here in New England this spring. (Thanks to @KenLynes for recommending the Swamp Bats, let me know if there’s another team you’d like to hear about!)
If you’re reading this, you might be one of the 800,000 people who took in a collegiate summer baseball game in New England last year. It’s no secret that New England has a very special tradition in this department, but it’s also no secret that the support doesn’t translate as well to the NCAA season. I’m here to try and convince you that it should, and also to fill you in on what some current and former Swamp Bats are up to this spring.
