Prospect Collegiate Baseball LLC, which has three teams in Indiana, has announced its 2016 schedule. The Kokomo Jackrabbits, Terre Haute Rex and the new, yet-to-be named Lafayette club will each play 60 games over 72 days next summer.
The league has also realigned its two divisions, with Kokomo and Lafayette to compete in the East and Terre Haute to play in the West. Terre Haute, whose home field is Bob Warn Field at Sycamore Stadium, won their first league title last year and Kokomo began its inaugural season in Kokomo Municipal Stadium, which will also host the 2016 Prospect League All-Star Game. Lafayette will play at historic Loeb Stadium in the Tippecanoe County City. The teams in Kokomo and Lafayette are both owned by Wisconsin-based MKE Sports & Entertainment LLC.
League Commissioner Bryan Wickline says "coaches have told our field managers and teams that sixty games is the right length of season. With our 28-man roster, we carry enough pitchers to work that number of games safely, and hitters always want another at-bat. We pride ourselves on developing our players and accomplishing the mission given to us by the college coaches."
The league is a developmental league for college players and uses wooden bats.
