After several great years in Elmira, manager Dan Shwam and the Pioneers have parted ways for 2013. The Pioneers will be in search of replacement in the coming weeks for Shwam. In all, Shwam managed the Pioneers for a total of six season, in two different stints 1997-99, and 2010-12. Shwam did win the final overall Pioneers championship in 1997 in the Northeast League. Plus, Hall of Fame pitcher Goose Gossage made a special appearance for the grand opening at Ollie's Bargain Outlet in Ithaca, and Chemung County summer cohesion softball highlights.
