Peach State League still not sure when they will play in Albany

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email


The man behind the Peach State League says everything is a go for the league's first game in Macon this weekend.

Bill Larsen says the dates for when the Albany Quails will play here in Albany still has not been worked out.

Larsen says he will discuss the schedule when he meets with three of the league's four team managers Monday night.

Larsen says managerial assignments still have not been made because one manager backed out and the league is trying to find a fourth spot.

The Peach State League is an independent league for players who have been overlooked by the major league teams.

The League is wanting to play a few games in Albany this summer to see if there is interest for a full time scheduled next year.

Larsen says the top priority is to make sure everything in Macon is running fine.




Bill Larsen said. "We have to make sure we have got enough people. Make sure that is working properly. Then, we will probably take some of the people for sure down there. To help operate down there in Albany for this season. Next season we will just make sure we hire people down there full time."



The Peach State League says they have signed 30 players and Larsen believes more will sign now that the MLB draft is over.



Larsen says the goal is to have four 23 man teams for a total of 92 players.
