TIDEWATER COLLEGIATE SUMMER BASEBALL LEAGUE
The Tidewater Collegiate Summer Baseball League (TSL) is a summer baseball league that provides college baseball players the opportunity to participate in a highly competitive, well organized, baseball league during the summer months, and gain valuable playing experience after the college season has ended.
Founded in 1946, we are one of the oldest Baseball Leagues in the Mid-Atlantic region, consistently delivering a great summer baseball experience for 70 years. More than 50 of our former players have went on to play professional baseball,
and over a dozen of them have played in the Major Leagues, some earning All Star recognition, among other various awards, and one even winning the National League Batting Title.
The Tidewater Collegiate Summer Baseball League is a “wood bat” league, as are most of the major college summer leagues, allowing players the opportunity to experience playing the game like the pros.
College summer leagues have played a role in the careers of many current and former professional baseball players, providing them the opportunity to improve their skills and understanding of the game, while gaining invaluable experience that helped with both their collegiate and professional careers.
The Tidewater Summer League (formerly known as the Norfolk City League) has been fielding baseball teams across the greater Hampton Roads area throughout the decades, providing quality playing opportunities for the baseball players from all over the Mid-Atlantic region and also providing great family entertainment for our area’s baseball fans since 1946.
