New for the 2014 Season of the Tidewater Summer League’s Collegiate Division, collegiate players wishing to participate in the TSL for 2014 may sign up online using PayPal or a Major Credit Card. Players can still submit their player fees by check or money order, but we are happy to add the online payment feature for your convenience. Please email the league your player information as requested or complete your information online on the form provided on our Player Application page.
TSL Rules Committee announces new player eligibility rules for the Collegiate Division’s 2014 season. For the 2014 season of the Tidewater Summer League’s Collegiate Division, new rules will allow teams to carry three (3) pitchers per team who are graduating seniors. These players will be part of the regular 25 man roster and will have full eligibility for the 2014 season. In addition, rule changes will also allow an additional three (3) conditional player spots on each roster for position players who are graduating seniors who will be eligible to participate in the collegiate division from Opening Day through the first day of the Major League Draft. These conditional player spots will be in addition to the 25 man roster. It is the intent of the rules committee to provide these conditional player spots in an effort to allow graduating seniors the opportunity to continue to play competitive baseball and stay in game shape and hopefully improve their draft stock, following the conclusion of their collegiate season, while they are awaiting the MLB draft. It is also the intent of the new rule change to help teams maintain adequate personnel at the beginning of the season, as some player’s collegiate season will be extended due to those college teams making their respective post season and NCAA tournament play. The three (3) senior pitching spots will hopefully provide the same opportunities for these newly eligible players, however, in the event these players are not drafted, they will remain eligible for TSL play throughout the 2014 season. For more information, visit our Player Eligibility and Cost page or you may contact the League Commissioner.
The Tidewater Summer League’s Collegiate Division will be playing a 40 game schedule for the 2014 season. We will again have 6 teams in this division, and are excited about the upcoming season. College coaches looking to place players and those players looking to be a part of the 2014 TSL Collegiate Division should email the league now, as rosters are already being filled. There will be a maximum of 25 players per team, so roster space is limited, act now to ensure your spot on one of these rosters. Please feel free to contact Michael Dooley, league commissioner, with any questions you may have concerning the upcoming season of Tidewater Summer League’s Collegiate Division at 757.737.6337 or email us at email@example.com.
