With a Tuesday night game followed by a 11 am Camp Day game on Wednesday, the Tigers and the ValleyCats played 2 games in less than 24 hours (Note: the Tigers and Renegades also played a Morning game on Monday).
As per NYPL scheduling, the Tigers do not visit Williamsport this year, but did in 2010. All of the Stedler and Pinckney Division teams play one series against each other every season, just the site is alternated.
For example, in 2010 the Tigers played at Batavia, Jamestown and Williamsport, while hosting Auburn, Mahoning Valley and State College.
This season, Williamsport (July 23-25), Batavia (July 30-August 1) and Jamestown (August 9-11) visit Dodd Stadium; and the Tigers travel to Mahoning Valley (July 13-15), Auburn (August 2-4) and State College (August 12-14).
