Pioneers Add Local Talent
2011 Has been a great year thus far for the Bellinger cousins as both have signed on to play collegiately next spring. Zac Bellinger who attended Thomas A. Edison High school will be suiting up for the Div. I Rams of Virginia Commonwealth University. Zac's Cousin Brad who attended Southside High school has signed to play with the Red Storm of St. John's University. Both will jump to the Pioneers roster with graduation behind them and the next chapter in their baseball careers ahead of them.
The Bellinger's will be the first two players in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) to suit up after finishing their respective High School baseball seasons within the past couple of weeks. The two newest Pioneers experienced rising success in their senior year as Zac lead the Edison Spartans (IAC) to a League Championship, while Brad Helped the Southside Green Hornets (STAC) to a West Division Championship. Elmira Pioneers G.M. Jeffery Kunion says "Perfect Game USA continues to develop High School talent all across the U.S. and is one of the main reasons why they decided to form the PGCBL so athletes such as the Bellinger's can showcase their talents alongside current collegiate athletes."
The Pioneers finish their two game series against Watertown this evening. Fans can enjoy another Spectacular Saturday where "Lucky Fan" giveaways, include an HD TV, a diamond accent bracelet, a MP3 player, and more.
