The Tidewater Collegiate Summer Baseball League (TSL) is a collegiate, summer, baseball league that provides college baseball players the opportunity to participate in a highly competitive, well organized, baseball league during the summer, and gain valuable playing experience after the college season has ended.
We are the oldest Collegiate Baseball League in the Mid-Atlantic region, consistently delivering a great summer baseball experience for over 70 years. More than 40 of our former players have played professional baseball, and over a dozen of them played in the Major Leagues, some earning MLB All Star recognition and one even winning the National League Batting Title. Visit our About Us page to learn more about our league, it’s history, our Alumni and more.
For the upcoming 2017 season, the Tidewater Collegiate Summer Baseball League will once again be joining forces with the Virginia Beach Collegiate Baseball League. Our league’s will combine to field ten (10) teams for the upcoming season (visit our Teams page to learn more), playing games at Marty Miller Field on the campus of Norfolk State University, Marlin Field on the campus of Virginia Wesleyan College, and TowneBank OBX Park, located at the First Flight Athletic Complex.

Players will receive instruction and leadership from our outstanding coaching staff, with decades of experience helping student/athletes get the most out of their summer baseball experience and our players will also receive additional instruction from former Major League and Minor League Players and Coaches (visit our 2017 Season Info page for more information). The league has scheduled a 30 game regular season, an All Star Game, and our Post Season Tournament, which will provide our players the opportunity to compete in over 250 innings of quality baseball this summer.
