Quebec Capitales vs. New York Boulders Frontier League: How to Watch

Quebec Capitales face the New York Boulders in a three-game series at Boulders’ Clover Stadium on May 31 - June 2 streamed only on FloBaseball.

May 30, 2024 by Briar Napier
Highlights: Schaumburg Vs. Quebec

Two teams with plenty of history against one another — even before their days as Frontier League teams — meet again on the diamond this weekend.

The New York Boulders and Quebec Capitales, who have been paired together in the same league as rivals (first in the Can-Am League from 2011-20, then in the Frontier since) for over a decade, meet once again on Friday (7 p.m.), Saturday (6:30 p.m.) and Sunday (1:30 p.m., all Eastern Time) for a three-game series at the Boulders’ Clover Stadium in Pomona, New York. All games in the series will be streamed live and exclusively on FloBaseball. 

Quebec has rolled through the Frontier since hopping in as a byproduct of the league’s absorption of the Can-Am prior to the (eventually canceled) 2020 season, winning back-to-back titles in 2022 and 2023 as it currently reigns as the league’s defending champion with history on the line. With another title victory, the Capitales would be the first Frontier team to three-peat in league history, though those hopes have gotten off to a rocky start with the team 8-9 overall to start the season.

Meanwhile, New York is off to a stellar start to its season, going 12-4 (as of the conclusion of Wednesday night’s games) while leading the Frontier’s East Division by three games as of this writing. The Boulders have made the Frontier League’s playoff once (in 2022) since joining the league, but they’ve never tasted a title within it. That could change if New York’s good early-season vibes keep on going.

Frontier League Players to Watch

Ryo Kohigashi, LHP, Quebec Capitales

A lefty from Japan, the 26-year-old Kohigashi’s journey to playing professional baseball in North America has been a strange (but successful) one. 

He moved to Quebec last season to play in the province’s top amateur baseball league for a club in Drummondville, where he was one of the top pitchers in the division, leading him to being signed by Quebec’s top professional team in the Capitales. Things have gone pretty well for him since at the pro level. 

Kohigashi has been dynamite in a small sample size thus far this season, pitching 13 innings across five appearances with a 1.38 ERA and 12 strikeouts to boot. His first career professional start May 18 against the Lake Erie Crushers, however, was one he and Quebec fans will never forget for another reason. 

Kohigashi went the first five innings of the game and didn’t allow a hit, striking out three Crushers in the process. Right-handed relievers Ryan Sandberg and Andrew Mazaros followed up Kohigashi’s strong start with four more innings of hitless ball, giving the Capitales a combined no-hitter to snap a six-game Lake Erie winning streak.

David Vinsky, OF, New York Boulders

Well-known to Frontier League diehards, the former St. Louis Cardinals draft pick finished fourth in the league in RBIs with 84 in 2022, his first season with New York, as he was selected as a league All-Star. The Michigan native had a bit of a sophomore slump with the Boulders in 2023, however, seeing his stats dip down across the board by hitting less than half of the homers (nine) that he hit in his first season of independent ball (20). 

In Year 3 in New York, however, the old Vinsky has seemed to come roaring back — and he may just be better than ever. 

No one in the Frontier League has more RBIs (at of the conclusion of Wednesday’s games) than Vinsky’s 22, with him smashing six alone in a single game to complete the Boulders’ sweep over the New England Knockouts this past Sunday. 

Roaring-hot at the plate as he and the Boulders approach this weekend’s series against Quebec, Vinsky on Wednesday against the Sussex County Miners went 3 for 3 with three runs, a homer and two RBIs — his third long bomb in his past five games, by the way.
