The Can-Am League is partnering with fellow independent circuit Empire Professional Baseball League, as the Empire League’s All-Star Team to play four games against the Sussex County Miners.
The Empire League’s All-Star Team–The Empire League Grays–and Miners will play a doubleheader at Sussex County on June 11, with the first game starting at 5:05 pm. In addition, the clubs will play single games against each other at Sussex County on July 2 and 3. Both contests will start at 6:05 pm.
“I am very excited we have entered this agreement with the Empire League,” Can-Am League Executive Director Kevin Winn said. “This four-game series will allow us a nice introduction to a league that sits in the middle of our footprint. Eddie Gonzalez has done a great job on this and I am looking forward to this series.”
Entering its fifth year, this partnership marks the Empire League’s first-ever interleague games. Established in 2015, the league operates with teams primarily in New Hampshire New York, Puerto Rico and Maine.
“I am extremely grateful for this Empire League opportunity by the Can-Am League and the great recognition by Kevin Winn,” Empire League Director of Baseball Eddie Gonzalez said. “We are excited about this agreement and the possibility of future collaborations.”
