The North Country Baseball League is an independent, professional baseball league located in the Northeastern region of the United States. Operating in cities not served by Major League Baseball or their minor-league affiliates, the NCBL has four franchise teams spread throughout the states of New York and Maine. One of the teams, the Road City Explorers, is a traveling team, playing all of its games at one of the other three teams.
The league was originally proposed as the East Coast Baseball League and had six teams, four in the United States and two in Ontario, Canada. Right before the season started, the Watertown team pulled out over what they claimed were unfulfilled promised by the ECBL management. The other U.S. based teams also pulled out and with Watertown reformed the current North Country Baseball League; the two Canadian teams then folded.
