The New York Boulders are an independent baseball team and a member of the Frontier League, the oldest independent baseball league that's still in operation, having formed in 1993. 2020 will be the first season the team has played as the New York Boulders. The team was founded in 2011 as the Rockland Boulders and was a member of the Canadian-American Association. The Can-Am Association ceased operations at the conclusion of the 2019 season, and the five remaining teams became members of the Frontier League. During their time as the Rockland Boulders, the franchise was wildly successful, winning the Canadian American Association League Championship in 2014 and then making the postseason each of the next five seasons. Although they weren't able to repeat as champions in 2015 and 2016, they were eliminated by the team that eventually won the league title. 2020 will see the New York Boulders take on a new name in a new league to start a new decade.
