About Us

Mission & Goals

  • 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

League Direction

  • 2020 will mark the fourth year of the CLPB, and with this we plan on expanding to 8 teams
  • League will attract many local and out of state D1, D2, JUCO, NAIA players
  • Ultimately, grab attention of and draw top draft prospects who see value in league vision (physical development combined with professional arm care)

  • Each team will involve following structure:
  • Head Coach
