Keeping track of the Gators in summer leagues

The NCAA college baseball season is over but that doesn’t mean a summer filled with bathing suits, beach balls and vacations for the Florida Gators. Baseball is a year round endeavor for those players with dreams of playing in the MLB some day, so summer means host families, wooden bats and more baseball.

There are over 40 Collegiate Summer Baseball Leagues around the country and in Canada. The top four leagues are Cape Cod, Northwoods, Coastal Plain and New England. Florida will send 12 returning players to three different leagues this summer. There are no Gators playing for Team USA this summer, which started play this past week. Additionally freshman Jack Leftwich will take the summer of to give his arm a rest, something that is not uncommon for pitchers to do after throwing as many innings as Leftwich (81.1 IP) did in 2018.

Here is where the guys will play their summer ball, with links to the team pages to help keep track of their progress throughout the summer.

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
