We have so many great venues for our players and fans. Six of our ballparks are former minor league stadiums, two have received more than $250,000 in renovations and we play at Doubleday Field at the National Baseball Hall of Fame.", commented PGCBL President Jeff Kunion.  "I believe we are the only summer collegiate league in the northeast that can make the claim that all of our teams play in real stadiums."
 
Here is the rundown.
 
Damaschke Field - Oneonta Outlaws
This former New York-Penn League ballpark, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, seats about 4,500.  The covered grandstand, main concession stand, bathrooms and player clubhouses were renovated in 2007.  Voted one of the top 5 "Classic Ballparks" in America by The Delaware County Times.
 
Dunn Field - Elmira Pioneers
Another former New York-Penn League stadium.  The view beyond the ballpark featuring mountains, trees and the Chemung River make for a scenic location.  The concourse area highlights the ballpark's rich history; with pictures of Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth playing at Dunn Field and Don Zimmer getting married at home plate.  Rated the best collegiate summer league ballpark in New York by Ballparkreviews.com.
 
Shuttleworth Park - Amsterdam Mohawks
In the last few years Shuttleworth has had more than $500,000 in upgrades and renovations.  The ballpark's distinctive short porch in left field, complete with it's own version of the Green Monster, is reminiscent of Fenway Park.
 
Duffy Fairgrounds - Watertown Wizards
The former New York Penn-League stadium, which annually hosts the longest running county fair in the United States, graciously sits near the Black River and picturesque Town Square . Fans can enjoy hovering above the dugout in the ballpark's signature first and third base deck box seats
 
Colburn Park - Newark Pilots
The former New York Penn-League ballpark, which sits near to the Erie Canal, recently renovated the locker rooms, concessions and scoreboard.  In total, Colburn Park received approximately $250,000 in improvements.
 
Veterans Memorial Park - Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs

This former New York Penn League ballpark, the stadium that was a focal point in Roger Kahn's "Good Enough To Dream", overlooks the City of Little Falls and seats 2,000 fans.  The ballpark is dedicated to members of the United States armed services and has hosted professional and collegiate games for 60 years.
 
East Field - Glens Falls Golden Eagles
The ballpark, which once hosted "AA" and New York-Penn League games, can seat more than 7,000 people.  Fans have the option to walk through the covered concourse to individual box seats behind the plate or take advantage of the unique perspective from the outfield bleachers.
  
Doubleday Field - Cooperstown Hawkeyes
The hallowed grounds of Doubleday Field, the site of the annual  Major League Hall of Fame Classic, sits adjacent to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Though it's iconic status was long established, it was recently named the best Classic Ballpark in America by the Delaware County Times.  The covered bleachers have not changed in 50 years and take you back in time to when baseball was the undisputed National Pastime.
 
Belizzi Stadium at the Plumeri Sports Complex - Albany Dutchmen

The new $4.7 million complex provides a first class ballpark unrivaled at the summer collegiate league level.
 
The nine team Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League plays a 48 game schedule in June, July and August.  It is affiliated with Perfect Game USA, the largest independent scouting service in the country.  Last year more than 1,250 professional players either wore the uniform of a PGCBL team or participated in a Perfect Game USA event.
