TSL’s City League Gears Up for another Great Summer

The TSL’s City Baseball League is gearing up for another great summer of collegiate baseball. The City League is the TSL’s developmental division, patterned after MLB Spring Training, providing players with the opportunity to develop and master a solid daily personal baseball focused work out, while participating in daily team work outs/practices as well as daily games.

Located in Virginia Beach, VA and featuring eight (8) teams, the TSL’s City League will run from June 2nd through June 30th. In addition to the daily work outs and practices, teams will be scheduled to play 25 games during the season (21 regular season games, 3 games guaranteed in the post season, and an exhibition game vs the Military WarDogs). The league will also host it’s annual All Star game, where the league’s top players can showcase their talents.

Housing and meal plans are available for players not living in the Tidewater area, and membership registration is now open for players interested in joining us next summer.

TSL ADDS NEW DIVISION FOR 2020

The Tidewater Summer League is excited to introduce the Premier Collegiate League, a new division under the TSL’s umbrella. The Premier Collegiate League is a NCAA compliant, wood bat summer league, playing a 42 game schedule beginning late May and running through July 31st, featuring top collegiate players from around the country.

While this division is new, our league and teams are not. The TSL has been in operation for more than 70 years, and all four of our founding franchises have been in operation for over 20 years each.
The Tidewater Drillers, est. 1986, the Greenbrier Knights, est. 1992, the Outer Banks Daredevils, est. 1996, and the Edenton Steamers, est. 1997 have joined forces to help create the new Premier Collegiate League.

Our teams bring their combined 100 plus years of experience running successful collegiate summer teams, their great venues filled will loyal and enthusiastic fans, and their commitment to providing both fans and players alike with a great collegiate summer baseball experience. The geographic construct of the league greatly reduces travel times for our players, allowing more time for development and less time riding on a bus.

Our players have been recommended by college coaches and MLB scouts, bringing together some of the top collegiate players from around the country to compete for the Premier Collegiate League’s inaugural Championship.

2019 Season Recap

The 2019 season of the Tidewater Collegiate Summer Baseball League has concluded for the year, and we grateful for all the hard work put in by our coaches, interns and staff, making 2019 another outstanding season of collegiate summer baseball.

The 2019 season brought together 224 college players from around the country, along with 24 coaches and a dozen interns, all with a shared goal of player development, getting consistent reps in the field and daily live at bats, developing a solid baseball related daily work out routine and a chance to take a step forward in their baseball careers. Virginia Beach was definitely the place to be this summer for college players.

2019 TSL All-Star Game; Kenneth Perry Field @ Virginia Wesleyan University

We watched as our players got in over 20,000 hours of work outs, strength and conditioning, speed and agility, hitting, throwing, receiving, position play, base running and team practices, played in 87 games, logging 783 innings of great collegiate wood bat summer baseball.

We watched as our players continued to develop their baseball skills throughout the season, putting in the hard work off the field that was visible as they took the field each day.

Daily, personal, baseball focused work outs became habits, reinforced by our daily games, and our hope is that our players will continue their daily work outs during the remainder of the summer and return to their respective schools a better baseball player than when they left last spring.

We saw our hitters get better each week, with hitters becoming more disciplined, going to the plate with a solid approach and a plan, and QAB’s went up for all our hitters as the season progressed, a testament to their commitment to the developmental program.

We saw our pitching staffs go from 240 – 250 pitches per game down to 160 – 170 pitches per game, and from a dozen plus BB’s per game down to 3 or 4, first pitch strike %’s climbing across the board, and at the end of our season we saw a healthy staff of arms league wide, reinforcing the value of a daily throwing/arm care program that focuses on a proper pre-game and post game routine, warm up progressions, off day throwing routines designed to improve not only control but command.

We saw player confidence rise and we also saw players enjoying the opportunity to take the field each day playing the game they love. We watched as players put in their time on the tees and in the cages, working together daily, in the weight room, pens and fields, and doing it with a smile and excitement as the results made the sweat and grind worthwhile.

Photo Credit: Richard L. Miller Photography

We saw friendships formed on the playing fields and in the dugouts, we saw young men conducting themselves in a manner that would make their parents, college coaches and friends proud, as competitiveness and sportsmanship were seen as one.

We saw a new champion crowned, as the Lakewood Legends won their first Postove Cup Championship, adding their name to the Tidewater Summer League’s Champions List. Congratulations to Coach Roberto Vaz and Coach Cody Ortego and all the Legends players.

We watched the MLB draft and once again were excited to see some of our former players getting their name called out as the dream of playing professional baseball instantly became a reality.

We are proud to have been a small part of every players baseball experience, and for those fortunate enough to make it to the next level, we rejoice with them and their families.

We once again saw a dozen of our league’s top players get picked up by some of the country’s top collegiate summer league teams, whose season’s run into the first of August, extending their summer season and providing them with the opportunity to go from our “minor league spring training” style summer program to a “minor league regular season” style program.

We want to say a big Virginia Beach THANK YOU to all of our players, coaches, interns and staff for another great summer.
