Mahoning Valley Scrappers
The Mahoning Valley Scrappers are affiliated with Major League Baseball (MLB) under a long term partnership. The league will focus on top college level prospects who are eligible to be drafted that summer by MLB teams. The partnership preserves high level baseball in the Mahoning Valley for years to come.
MLB Draft League participants will receive unprecedented visibility to MLB club scouts through both in-person observation and state-of-the-art scouting technology along with educational programming designed to prepare them for careers as professional athletes. PBR will provide support for the league’s staffing, player and coach recruitment, on-field operations and administrative functions. PBR will also use their media and technology platforms to promote the league and its players throughout the season. Plans include a 68-game regular season with an annual All-Star Break centered around the MLB Draft.
The league does not have divisions, but teams will play an unbalanced schedule with a primary opponent. Those pairings consist of the following: Mahoning Valley Scrappers and West Virginia Black Bears, State College Spikes and Williamsport Crosscutters, Frederick Keys and Trenton Thunder.
