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.
