Welcome to the Empire League Spring Training!
As you know, The Empire League is a proud minor league system that serves selected player the opportunity to showcase your skills for the purpose of being signed to the professional baseball MLB partnered leagues. Your performance at this camp will determine if you deserve to play a full season in the Empire League.
Here is a friendly reminder about this league and summer:
As discussed at all camps, the Empire League is located in small rural towns in north New York. We want you to know all Empire League games and practices are located in the mountain regions of the state. This may cause difficulty in phone service, internet usage, and being around very unpopulated areas. All players must know, the true purpose of being in the Empire League is for playing and showcasing. We are here for baseball, community work and fun activities like fishing all summer long.
Players given that opportunity have to maintain extremely good shape, and produce good statistical numbers in order to be sent up to an MLB affiliate partnered league or remain in the Empire League.
