Terre Haute Rex Press Release: Prospect League Adds Johnstown, Pa. for 2021

Johnstown makes 14 teams now in the Prospect League. In one season, the REX went from being in the East to back in the Central division. There was uncertainty if Lafayette (newly $20 million revised Loeb Stadium) would bring back the Aviators or another league, but last week was announced a five year agreement with the Aviators. Now Johnstown, PA, will help fill the void we desperately needed for those East teams. Just a short few weeks ago Alton, IL "Alton River Dragons" was added for 2021 season.
