Falconer Central School, with the assistance of the Chautauqua County Baseball Umpires’ Association, will be sponsoring the High School Baseball Showcase on April 27th and 28th, 2018 at Russell E. Diethrick Park in Jamestown.

This is the ninth year of the resurrection of the Baseball Showcase which was conceived in the 1980s and will feature twelve High School Baseball teams from Chautauqua and Cattaraugus Counties in a schedule of six games over the two day period.

The Showcase gives local High School players an opportunity to play in a Professional Baseball Stadium and hopefully be seen by a college coach or two who have been notified about the event and will hopefully be in attendance.

The schedule for the Baseball Showcase is as follows:

Friday, April 27 –             4:30 –Brocton @ Cassadaga Valley (League Game)

7:30 – Dunkirk @ Falconer (League Game)

Saturday, April 28 –        10:00 – Panama at Westfield (League Game)

1:00 – Pine Valley vs. Clymer (Non-League)

4:00 – Olean vs. Southwestern (Non-League)

7:00 – Maple Grove @ Chautauqua Lake (League Game)

A gate fee of $1.00 for students (K-12) and Senior Citizens, and $2.00 for adults will be charged to help Falconer HS Baseball and Softball, to add to the Umpires’ Association Baseball Scholarship Fund, and to offset some of the costs of operating the Showcase. SCHOOL, SECTION VI, OR ANY OTHER COMPLIMENTARY PASSES WILL NOT BE HONORED FOR THIS EVENT. One gate fee on each day will allow admission to all games for that day.
