Mansfield Destroyers baseball will be ready for action on Thursday night. 

The Destroyers, an expansion team in the New York Collegiate Baseball League (NYCBL), host the Hornell Dodgers Thursday at 5:35 pm at Mansfield University. A team with plenty of local talent, along with longtime local head coach Brian Hill at the helm, the Destroyers are confident in their ability to compete and win in 2019. 

Wednesday the team addressed the media in preps of their first ever season. Team owner, Don Lewis, who was a front office success with the Elmira Pioneers for years, tells 18 Sports that this is an exciting team to be a local baseball fan. The Destroyers will player every home game at Shaute Field on the campus of Mansfield University this season.
