The Rockland Boulders were accepted into the Canadian-American Association for the 2011 season. They are the first professional team to be based in New City, NY, located some 25 miles north of New York City. They began play in a brand new ballpark, Ramapo Ballpark and were managed by former major league P Dave LaPoint. In their first season they finished 7th out of 8 teams, only ahead of the road team, the New York Federals. They did much better in their second season, finishing 3rd, and were among the league leaders in attendance both seasons.
