The New Bedford Bay Sox begin their season on June 5, but the work to put a team on the field begins well before then. Bay Sox President and Treasurer, Stephen King joins WBSM's Jim Phillips to discuss the 2018 version of the Bay Sox, and what goes into putting a team on the field in the New England Collegiate Baseball League. The league has 13 teams across six New England States, and is considered one of the nation's elite leagues bringing together top-ranked college players with professional baseball aspirations. This is the tenth year for the Bay Sox in New Bedford.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
