The Frontier League announced today that its Board of Directors has issued membership
for a new team that will play at Campanelli Stadium in Brockton, Massachusetts beginning
with the upcoming 2024 season. This continued growth of the Frontier League is
especially noteworthy as it creates the league’s first team to play in New England. The
New England club will play in the Eastern Division of the Frontier League beginning with
the upcoming 2024 season and will bring the total number of permanent members of the
league to sixteen teams.

The New England expansion team is owned by Brian Kahn, who also holds ownership ofthe Windy City ThunderBolts within the Frontier League. Windy City hosted the 2023 All-
Star Game and was recently recognized as the Frontier League’s Organization of the Year.Under Mr. Kahn’s leadership, the New England organization will be similarly steadfast in its mission to offer baseball as an affordable and enriching family entertainment
experience. This commitment extends to enhancing community engagement, providing
exceptional customer service, fostering innovation, investing in the professional growth
of its dedicated team, and continuously improving the game-day experience for fans.

“We are excited to be adding a tremendous sports market in Brockton and a great facility
in Campanelli Stadium to the Frontier League,” said deputy commissioner Steve Tahsler.
“Windy City is one of our best regarded operations, and we are confident that the
management and staff in Brockton will provide an amazing atmosphere and service to the
Brockton community.”

Mayor Robert F. Sullivan expressed his enthusiasm for the news, “Brockton is a proud
sports city and has a particularly long history in baseball as it is the birthplace of the
catcher’s mitt. It is fitting that the next era of professional baseball in New England will
call Brockton home. We are so excited for the return of pro ball to the City of Champions
and look forward to welcoming fans across New England to Campanelli Stadium.

“I’d like to express my gratitude to the City of Brockton for their unwavering support and,
of course, to the Frontier League for this exciting opportunity to bring high-quality,
independent professional baseball to New England. Our aim is to create a team that
unites the entire region and becomes a pivotal force in the Frontier League, enriching the
vibrant sports culture of New England,” said Owner, Brian Kahn.

The addition of Brockton removes the Empire State Greys from the schedule. “We
appreciate the dedication of the Empire League, Eddie Gonzalez, and Jerry Gonzalez over
the past two seasons. They are a quality organization that operated with strong integrity
during their time playing in the Frontier League,” added Tahsler.
