Futures League Announces 2016 Schedule

November 18, 2015 - Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL)
Old Orchard Beach News Release

Chelmsford, MA - On Wednesday, November 18, Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) Commissioner Chris Hall released the 2016 Futures League regular season schedule. "We've been so fortunate to have such great communities to play in. Thanks to our ten teams' fan support which grows year over year, the Futures League is one of the premier leagues in the country." The Futures League's sixth season is set to open on Wednesday, June 1.

The Futures League will continue to feature two divisions. The East Division will consist of the Nashua Silver Knights, Seacoast Mavericks, North Shore Navigators, Brockton Rox and Martha's Vineyard Sharks. While the West Division will consist of the Bristol Blues, Wachusett Dirt Dawgs, Pittsfield Suns, Torrington Titans and the 2015 Futures League Champion Worcester Bravehearts.

Each team will play a 56-game regular season schedule split evenly with 28 home games and 28 road games. The regular season runs from Wednesday, June 1 through Saturday, August 6 and will be immediately followed by the playoffs. The 2016 Futures League playoffs will revert back to the 2014 format which will feature six teams in a three-round format. The winner of the each division will have a bye in round one. The next four teams with the best overall record will be in a winner take all play-in game. The play-in games will be between the #3 and #6 seed, and the #4 and #5 seed. Teams will be seeded 1 through 6 based on overall records. Round two will feature a 3-game series between the league's #1 seed and the lowest remaining seed from round one, and between the league's #2 seed and the highest remaining seed from round one. The FCBL championship will be determined by a final 3-game series between the two teams who won their semi-final round.

The 5th Annual Futures League All-Star Game will be hosted by the 2014 & 2015 Futures League Championship team, the Worcester Bravehearts. "The Futures League far and away runs the best Scout Day and All-Star Game in the country. I always look forward to attending their All-Star Games," said one Major League Scout. The game will be held on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field on the campus of the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. The Worcester Bravehearts are owned and operated by the Creedon family and led by long-time baseball executive, GM Dave Peterson.

The Futures League has experienced a meteoric rise to being one of the best leagues in the country in large part due to the league's well-capitalized ownership groups featuring franchises with tremendous facilities in outstanding communities. In addition, the Futures Collegiate Baseball League provides family-friendly and affordable fun for its host communities in a minor league style setting. Learn more at
