Rumours abound about Indy ECBL folding

By: Devon Teeple

The season is scheduled to start, unfortunately the East Coast Baseball League has apparently folded before the season even started.

According to WWNY TV, the Watertown Bucks, one of the league's six inaugural clubs, has pulled out of the league for a variety of reasons and are working on forming another league with three other teams. It has been reported that another team has withdrawn from the league. While the article quoted league president, Colin Cummins as saying that the league start was delayed because of "clerical issues", nothing has really been confirmed at this time.

Ricky Romero and Chris Colabello: The tale of two careers

By: Devon Teeple

Ricky Romero and Chris Colabello are two athletes at the opposite end of the spectrum.

Romero, a former Ace and once a potential CY Young candidate, was given his walking papers by the Toronto Blue Jays with $7.5 million remaining on the last year of his contract. His release also ignited a $600,000 buyout of a club option for next year.

Colabello, a superb independent league and minor league player, has finally made his way back to the Major Leagues. His road isn't necessarily the best route, but he did what he had to do to make it back.

Why focus on two athletes that aren't impact players? Because Romero and Colabello are at a crossroads with endless potential.

Jays' Colabello making the most of his opportunity

Whenever Chris Colabello drives the ball into the gap I can't help but smile. The long-time Indy standout is back on the radar, this time as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. 

For years Colabello put up numbers, numbers that would make any manager proud. Unfortunately, those numbers were in the Independent Baseball leagues. Indy ball is getting more recognition now than ever, but back in 2005 at the age of 21, no one really understood what he could provide.

Sugar Land Skeeters loaded for 2015 season

By: Devon Teeple

The cream rises to the top.

In a few short years the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Independent Atlantic League have set multiple attendance records, despite being around for only a brief amount of time. In 2012, their first full ATL season, they set a modern day Independent League team record by drawing nearly 470,000 fans to the games (465,511). Sugar Land also topped the Indy leagues in attendance in 2013 and 2014.
