Collegiate summer baseball leagues are amateur baseball leagues that feature players who have attended at least one year of college, are entering college as a freshman and have at least one year of athletic eligibility remaining. Generally, they operate from late May to early August. Players use wooden baseball bats, hence the common nickname of these leagues as “wood bat leagues”.
To find a collegiate summer team, players work with their college coaches and prospective teams’ general managers. They report to summer leagues after completing their baseball season with their high school, NCAA, NAIA or Junior College teams. Some players arrive late due to their college team’s postseason play, which sometimes runs into early June. During the season, out of town players are housed by volunteer host families and bussed to and from road games.
This year, a number Cal State Fullerton Titan players expected to return to the team are playing summer ball. In addition to those returners, a handful of incoming high school players expected to join the Titan Baseball roster this fall are also participating in Collegiate Summer Baseball. Here is a list of those players and where they are playing. In order to keep up with these Titans with their various summer ball teams, we have linked to the league, teams’ and players’ social media profiles.
