“The Prospect League is extremely proud to announce the addition of three new members for the 2010 season,” league president Bryan Wickline said in a statement. “All three new teams will bring great facilities and ownership to the Prospect League. We are honored to approve these members and look forward to helping them bring an outstanding summer baseball program to their communities.”
