Provide participants with a player-focused collegiate summer league experience without sacrificing physical development.
Create a Summer schedule that is conducive to our primary mission (4 – 5 games a week) while maintaining a traditional college Summer league atmosphere
Provide players with elite coaches, training, facilities (mixture of professional fields, Gardens Park (Cressey Training Facility), & local high schools)
Players will be exposed to nutritional / training seminars with option to train with national leaders in player development – Cressey Sports Performance
Causes for Action
After 60 game Spring seasons, players continue to wear themselves down throughout Summer with intense schedules
Currently players are essentially forced to choose between no summer baseball in exchange for physical development or traditional summer leagues to improve baseball skills
Many leagues place players at risk with inadequate implementation of pitch count regulations in Summer (Highest rates of TJ today than ever before)
Academics take back seat to baseball careers due to demanding Summer schedules
Long bus rides, absence of strength coaches and physical trainers
2022 will mark the 6th year of the CLPB.
League will attract talented local and out of state D1, D2, D3, JUCO and NAIA players
Ultimately, draw talented collegiate players who see value in the league vision (physical development combined with professional arm care) who are looking to enhance their college careers and pursue professional baseball opportunities
10 Teams, 4 league owned-franchises
30-35 game regular season, plus playoffs
25-30 man rosters
Each team will have a minimum of a head coach/manager and 1 assistant coach
League interns to handle day-to-day operations
2022 Player Fee: $1000, additional fees for Cressey Sports Performance training, housing NOT included
