Muckdogs Name Lives
Written by Dan Fischer on January 12, 2021
A familiar name to baseball and hockey fans in Elmira, Robbie Nichols owner of CAN-USA sports, will put a collegiate baseball team on the field at Dwyer Stadium…
On the heels of Monday’s city council approval of a five-year lease for Dwyer Stadium, Nichols has announced that the new team will bear an old name.
The Muckdogs, formerly of the NYP league will keep its name under new ownership in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball league.
Expect a home opener the end of May. The league plays a total of 30 home and 30 away games. Players will live with host families and Nichols says the goal is to have at least four players with tines to the local area.
The COVID-19 pandemic could interfere with plans for the new Muckdogs, but Nichols pledged to City Council on Monday that if the team can not play this season, they will be here next year.
