SHARE NOW

DuBois, PA – The Tri-State League, a summer collegiate baseball league headquartered in
Youngstown, OH, awarded DuBois as the newest team in the league starting for the summer
2020 season. The league consists of six additional teams along with DuBois: Butler Bluesox
and Butler Ironbucks from Butler, PA, Creekside Crocodiles from Youngstown, OH, Pittsburgh
Pandas and Steel City Blacksox from the Pittsburgh area, and the Toledo Hawks from Toledo,
OH.

“We’re really excited to be adding DuBois into the league and joining in our mission to provide
high quality instruction and teaching during the summer to our collegiate athletes,” said Bob
Mingo, one of the league commissioners and coach for Creekside. “DuBois is such a big
baseball town and our teams are looking forward to the experience to play at a top-class facility
like Showers Field.”

The DuBois Bucks, title sponsored by Buck’s Pizza, will make-up baseball players from the
collegiate levels of NCAA Division I, II and III and other governing bodies such as NAIA or
USCAA, as well as eligible, graduating high school seniors.

“This opportunity to support the new baseball team bearing the name Buck’s is a unique
opportunity for us and we’re eager, and hopeful, for baseball this summer”, said Josh Benton,
co-owner of Buck’s Pizza of DuBois, LLC.

The mission of the Tri-State League is to provide continued development and instruction for
college baseball players during the summer months when school is out of session and after
their respective baseball seasons.

The season schedule will begin in June with the Bucks home schedule slated for seven home
dates at Showers Field. Ticket information, game themes and promotions accustomed to minor
league baseball along with group outing and event opportunities, and business sponsorships
will be available soon at duboisbucks.com

The league and teams are monitoring the fluid situation of the state’s guidelines and restrictions
during the COVID-19 epidemic. The season is scheduled to take place until further notice.
