The Tidewater Summer League is a “wood bat” collegiate summer baseball league. Founded in 1946, the TSL has provided local baseball players and fans with exciting summer league baseball for over 75 years. We remain focused on player development and providing young collegiate athletes an outstanding summer baseball experience and the opportunity to spend your summer in beautiful Virginia Beach, VA.

With great facilities,, coaches, decades of experience and a development program designed by former professional players, the Tidewater Summer League offers an outstanding opportunity for collegiate players to continue to develop their skills and gain valuable playing experience after their collegiate season has ended.

The league’s scheduling format allows players the opportunity to get in a great summer baseball season, while allowing time for players to work and also participate in other strength and conditioning, speed and agility, hitting, throwing and/or velocity training programs during their summer break.

College summer leagues have played an instrumental role in many current and former professional baseball players’ careers, providing them with the opportunity to improve their skills and understanding of the game while gaining invaluable experience that helped with their collegiate and professional careers.

If you are a current collegiate player, incoming freshmen, or graduating, college bound, high school senior, looking to get on the field and gain valuable playing experience playing against other collegiate players this summer, please consider joining us.
