The Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League announced this afternoon that Jeffrey Kunion has been appointed league President effective January 1, 2012.  The PGCBL, a collegiate summer league in upstate New York, consists of eight teams and plays a 48 game schedule in June, July and August.  Affiliated with Perfect Game USA, the largest independent scouting service in the country, the PGCBL is a developmental league for players preparing for professional careers.  In 2011, 96  players playing pro baseball and more than 85% of the players chosen in last year's MLB draft were either members of a PGCBL team or Perfect Game USA showcase.

Kunion, who most recently was the principal owner & General Manager of the PGCBL's Elmira Pioneers, has more than 20 years experience in professional baseball. He began his baseball career in the 1980's, working six years in the business office of the New York Mets.  He was a partner/owner in three minor league teams: the New Haven Ravens (Eastern League), Mohawk Valley Landsharks (Northeast League) and the Newburgh NightHawks (Northeast League).  He was Northeast League President in 1995 & 1996 and spent 15 years as a business consultant or Director of Player Personnel and Bench Coach for multiple teams in the Northeast League, Can Am League, Frontier League and Continental League.

"The PGCBL has tremendous potential.  We affiliated with Perfect Game USA last year and our clubs got instant access to quality ballplayers who would not come to our teams in previous years.   I look forward to helping create the strongest collegiate league in the country.", stated Kunion.
