TCL Headed to East Texas

by Ryan Peterson

Some of the top college baseball players in the country spend their summers in the Texas Collegiate League.   East Texas is joining the party.  Today the Kilgore Chamber of Commerce announced a new team that will begin play next summer at Driller Park.  The season runs from June to March.

S.F.A. players as well as former Hudson Hornet Brandon Belt played in the league last summer.

The T.C.L. is currently in mess, with several teams pulling out.  The league was in need of new blood.   Former big leaguers that played in the T.C.L. include Clay Buchholz and Hunter Pence.
