*The Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft continues today with the third round beginning at 1:00 p.m. The draft can be followed at MLB.com. We’ll have coverage on Twitter @pgcblbaseball as well throughout today and tomorrow. Last season, 30 players affiliated with PGCBL teams were taken in the draft.
*Rain pretty much washed away the entire schedule yesterday and is doing the same to today’s docket. The only game that actually started last night was Amsterdam’s home opener against Utica at Shuttleworth Park. Rain halted play in the top of the second inning and the game never resumed. At the time of the stoppage, Utica held a 2-0 lead over Amsterdam. The game will be completed on July 26 prior to the regularly-scheduled game at Shuttleworth Park between Utica and Amsterdam. Following the conclusion of the June 6 game, the regular nine-inning game will take place.
*Reschedule dates are listed above. All doubleheaders consist of two seven-inning games. However if it is a non-traditional doubleheader with the completion of a suspended game and then a regularly-scheduled game, both games are considered nine-inning contests.
*Last night’s rain event throughout New York State marked just the fourth time in the three-year history of the PGCBL where an entire day of games has been lost to rain. The last time an entire day was rained out was July 26, 2012. Overall last year during the two-month regular season, just two days were lost to the rain. And in the league’s first year of operation, 2011, there was only one day was completely rained out. Three of the four rain-out days have come in June. The league has never lost back-to-back days because of rain.
*I’ll break down team rosters tomorrow and give you tidbits on the roster of each PGCBL team. For example, which squad has the most draft picks? Or, how many players are there from the state of New York? All of that is coming tomorrow.
