TUPPER LAKE, NY – The Empire Baseball League takes pride in giving players the chance to continue to play the game of baseball in hopes of getting a chance at the higher levels. So far during the 2022 season, three players have made the jump up to the Frontier League from the EBL.
The most recent call up to the Greys was Plattsburgh Thunderbird outfielder Marcos Estevez. With the Thunderbirds, Estevez hit .473, with 26 hits, 20 runs scored, six doubles, four triples, two home runs, 25 RBIs and three stolen bases. He also walked more than he struck out, walking 15 times and striking out only eight times. In his 74 plate appearances, Estevez slugged 1.055 and had an OBP of .568.
As the EBL season continues, more players will get their chance to prove that they have what it takes to move up the professional ladder.
