Tupper Lake welcomes the River Pigs!
Tupper Lake welcomed the Tupper Lake River Pigs professional baseball team to town for their first season in summer 2020. The Tupper Lake River Pigs are an independent American professional baseball team that play in the Empire Professional Baseball League. From June to August this coming summer, the River Pigs will take to the ball field at the Tupper Lake Municipal Park. The name "River Pigs" was chosen to reflect the region's logging history. River Pigs were skilled loggers who broke up logjams on rivers.
There has already been major upgrades to the field at the Tupper Lake Municipal Park, but more needs to be done. ARISE (Adirondack Residents Intent on Saving Their Economy) is a 501(c)3 organization that has agreed to partner with the group of volunteers working on the renovation of the field in an effort to raise $10,000 ahead of the 2020 season. This money will complete the necessary fieldwork and bring the current field up to the standards required by the Empire League.
