Despite being in its winter hibernation, baseball still finds a way to remain relevant throughout the cold months.
The Newark Pilots won’t be back in action until late spring, but when they do, they’ll have new owners.
Steve and Carol Szatko recently purchased the team, which plays in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League, from Lyons’ Bob and Leslie Ohmann. While they will certainly strive to steer the franchise back into the postseason, giving back to the community seems to be paramount to the couple.
The Szatkos paid $40,000 for the team with several more thousands in additional equipment and upgrades added in, including an updated entrance, scoreboard and locker rooms to name a few.
