Collegiate Baseball Summer League Schedule Tracker
Once the spring season was officially canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic and the dust began to settle on the Division I Council’s decisions about eligibility, aid and roster limits, eyes at the college level turned to summer ball as the next domino that could potentially fall.
The timing of summer ball, with most leagues typically looking to get started in late May or early June, makes the decisions about what to do with summer seasons complicated and difficult.
Many leagues have already delayed their opening day, but like the spring college season and unlike MLB, they don’t have the luxury of time and being able to manipulate the schedule to maximize the number of games played. With school, whether on campus or virtually, set to start back up as it always does, there is a firm window during which summer ball can be played.
Leagues that have teams in multiple states have additional complications to deal with. For example, the Northwoods League has teams in Wisconsin, a state that has a “safer at home” order until May 26, which made the league’s scheduled date for opening day untenable.
As some states begin to reopen and others extend orders to keep citizens home, leagues could have to make decisions between beginning a season without certain teams and canceling the season altogether.
In some leagues, such as the California Collegiate League, the MINK League and the West Coast League, that splintering has already started to happen, with some teams choosing not to compete, and others, like Bellingham in the WCL, being forced not to compete because they play in a public ballpark that cannot hold games until the end of August, per local order.
