Florida Collegiate Summer League, INC
The Florida Collegiate Summer League (Florida League) is a wood bat baseball league with six teams in Central Florida. Founded in 2003, the Florida League provides a valuable opportunity for college players to play wood bat baseball against top-level competition with the goal of preparing them for a career in professional baseball.
The Florida League is one of twelve leagues affiliated with the National Alliance of College Summer Baseball (NACSB) – an alliance of college summer wood bat leagues which operates under National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) legislation. It is funded in part by Major League Baseball and is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation that is primarily dependent on donations from individuals, businesses and foundations in each team’s community.
The Florida League is recognized by Baseball America as one of the top summer leagues in the United States. Presently, more than 420 former Florida League players have been drafted by Major League Baseball (MLB) teams – with 21 making it to the Show.
Entering its nineteenth season, the Florida League will give more than 300 college players the opportunity to compete. The League also provides positions for 24 coaches, and more than 40 summer internships for college students and recent graduates. Team rosters are comprised solely of players who have completed one year of college and have college eligibility remaining, positioning the NACSB summer leagues at the highest level of pre-professional amateur baseball in America.
The Florida League has a 36-game schedule per team. All games are played at night to allow players time during the day to work, attend summer classes or condition on their own. The night schedule is also conducive to attendance by families, for whom the Florida League baseball provides affordable entertainment. In 2018, the Florida League welcomed more than 50,000 fans to the ball park! Fan events – such as the Rubber Chicken Chuck and Races of the Bases during every game – are among the fun activities that promote family participation.
Community involvement is a priority for the Florida League. We partner with local non-profit and civic groups through the FUNraiser program, providing a venue for interaction with fans and an opportunity to sell tickets to raise money for their respective cause. Our players, coaches and interns also volunteer their time by performing community service for other non-profit organizations in each team's home town.
