Pecos League cancels games vs College Teams.
The Pecos League had originally agreed to play games vs the New Mexico College League on set off days during the season. The games were designed to allow the College teams to play against Pro Players and to let the Pro Teams work some guys into the games. With the exception of the Las Cruces Aggies none of the college teams showed up for a single game this year. The West Texas Outlaws were the latest in a list of no shows on Monday as they no showed the Roswell Invaders in what was supposed to be a 5:05 Start.
The Las Cruces Vaqueros never heard from the Bisbee Copperkings.
The New Mexico College Teams had request games vs Roswell, Ruidoso and Alamogordo. They no showed all 6 of their dates and only appeared in Las Cruces. "I believe these teams didn't realize how much it would cost to travel and didn't have enough pitching to play against Pro Caliber teams. Had they played against these pro teams there would have had to make sacrifices in their regular summer schedules by holding back arms." The Pecos League will only consider scheduling serious college summer teams in the future.
