2016 was a banner year for the Palisades WBL. The Palisades WBL contracted from 12 to 11 teams to make room for the the eight team minor league system. Tim Trenary picked up his 1000th career strikeout, Gerard Fitzgerald broke the single game hit (9) and RBI (12) record and Brian DiNapoli threw a perfect game against the Cardinals.
