The Trenton Thunder, presented by NJM Insurance Group, announced its 2022 schedule as they return to defend their inaugural league championship with 40 home games at Trenton Thunder Ballpark. The six-team futures league works in conjunction with Major League Baseball as a top collegiate summer league that showcases draft-eligible players leading into each summer’s Amateur Draft. Last season, 39 Draft League players were selected in the 2021 MLB Draft and more than 50 players signed free-agent contracts with both affiliated and independent teams.
“We are thrilled to announce the schedule for the 2022 season today,” said Thunder President and General Manager Jeff Hurley. “The 2022 season is going to be bigger and better than ever as we unveil new and improved in-game entertainment and promotions to make the Thunder Experience the best in Minor League Baseball. Thunder fans are going to experience Big League Futures while having Major League fun at the ballpark.”
The MLB Draft League expanded the league schedule to 80 games, meaning fans will get 40 chances to come watch the Thunder at Trenton Thunder Ballpark during the 2022 season. The Thunder open the home portion of their schedule with a six-game homestand starting on Tuesday, June 7 against the Williamsport Crosscutters. That is the first of three long homestands throughout the season, with the final home game coming on Sunday, August 28 against the Frederick Keys. The MLB Draft League’s All-Star break will also take place from Sunday, July 17 to Thursday, July 21.
