ABOUT THE NYCBL
The New York Collegiate Baseball League is a summer wood bat development league for collegiate baseball players, founded in 1978. The league affords college players the opportunity to develop their skills at a higher level of play, gain experience with wood bats, and be evaluated by Major League Baseball scouts. The NYCBL is located in Upstate New York and a small portion of the league's annual budget is funded by Major League Baseball.
Teams play a 42 game regular season schedule with games beginning in June and ending in the last week in July. All games are 9 innings, with most doubleheaders scheduled on the weekends. The All-Star game is played in early July, and the League Championship Series concludes in the first week of August.
