NORMAL — Normal CornBelters team president Steve Malliet confirmed Wednesday that the team is leaving the independent professional Frontier League and will be a part of a college wood bat league for the 2019 season.
"I wish we could remain a part of the Frontier League, but it isn't feasible for us to do that long term," Malliet said.
Malliet mentioned the Prospect League, Northwoods League and Great Lakes League as possible destinations for the team, but added that decision has yet to be finalized.
Malliet called a college summer league "a good model for where we're at and the community we're in."
Normal has been part of the Frontier League for the past nine seasons.
