WILL LITTLE NAMED FULL-TIME BIG LEAGUE UMPIRE
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

It was not exactly with tidal-wave impact when the news trickled in that three umpires had been promoted to fulltime status in the major leagues, yet it represented one more very important milestone for the Can-Am League. In fact, for the entire Independent Baseball world.
One of the trio promoted to this level--and to an annual six-figure-plus-benefits job--was Will Little, who came out of the Can-Am League in 2007 and worked his way all the way up the baseball ladder.

FIVE FORMER CAN-AM PLAYERS IN MAJOR LEAGUE CAMPS

Four pitchers and seven-year veteran first baseman-outfielder Chris Colabello give the Can-Am League a contingent of five of the league's former players who will be in major league spring training camps this year. Three of the players will be with Toronto. The Can-Am representatives with the players' position and major league team:

LHP Andrew Albers, Toronto (Quebec); 1B-OF Chris Colabello, Toronto (Worcester and Nashua); RHP Steve Delabar, Toronto (Brockton); RHP Luis Garcia (pictured), Philadelphia (Newark) and RHP Jon Velasquez, New York-NL (Rockland).

PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL RETURNS TO COOPERSTOWN
Rockland, New Jersey to play at Doubleday Field on July 17

For the first time in over six years, professional baseball returns to historic Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, N.Y. when the Rockland Boulders host the New Jersey Jackals on July 17, 2015 for a 2:00 pm start. The first-ever “Cooperstown Can-Am Classic” will see last season’s top two teams battle it out in the first professional baseball game in Cooperstown since 2009.

COLABELLO'S STATUS TO BE KNOWN SOON
Indy Baseball Chatter by By Bob Wirz

This could be one of the biggest weeks in longtime Can-Am League star Chris Colabello’s baseball life since the 10-day window after he was designated for assignment by his new team, Toronto, will expire.

This means the 31-year-old first baseman-outfielder will either become a free agent or have his contract picked up by another major league team.

GURRIEL FAMILY WELL-REPRESENTED WITH CUBA
Independent Baseball Chatter - by Bob Wirz

It was significant news last summer when 32-year-old Yuniesky Gurriel became the first player to receive the Cuban government’s approval to play in North America, and the outfielder joined the Can-Am League’s Quebec Capitales. He likely will be back there this season after hitting .321 in 30 games with four doubles and 11 runs batted in.
Yuniesky played center field for Havana this winter in the Cuban League.

NEW JERSEY'S DWIGHT CHILDS HEADED TO PITTSBURGH
Catcher joined Jackals in late 2014 from American Association

Durham, N.C. -- The Can-Am League announced on Friday that the contract of New Jersey Jackals C Dwight Childs was purchased by the Pittsburgh Pirates organization.

Childs was acquired by New Jersey from St. Paul of the American Association in late August 2014, hitting .261 in nine regular-season games for the Jackals. He spent the 2013 season with St. Paul as the club's everyday catcher, slugging 18 doubles and seven home runs in 73 games.
