With growing interest in Herkimer College's baseball team, the school has decided to launch a Junior-Varsity team to help get more student-athletes the opportunity to play.

The JV baseball team will have it's first season in spring 2019, and will play against JV teams from area 4-year colleges like Utica College and Ithaca College, and will play a 15-20 game schedule.

In a press release from Herkimer College, Varsity Head Coach Jason Rathbun said the new program is great for incoming players:

“We have had so much interest in our program over the last 14 years. With our development of talent, this will give an entire additional group of student-athletes the opportunity to get better and showcase their skills to four year schools. This is an exciting opportunity for our program and for student-athletes who are interested in taking their game to the next level."

The JV team will be coached by Lane Potter, an alum of the program and assistant coach for the Varsity team the past two years.
