ACBL COVID-19 Update
May 1, 2020

The Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League (ACBL) on April 30th took further action in remaining optimistic for a 2020 College Summer Baseball Season. The 2020 Summer Season Opener has been delayed til July 1st.

The ACBL plans to make a formal decision no later than May 31st on whether to proceed forward or cancel the season altogether. The ACBL to date has a model in place that would accommodate a 30 game schedule plus Playoffs.

Over the upcoming weeks, The ACBL will be assessing all information and guidance provided by health officials and our local authorities to ensure the safety of all league participants. We all want nothing more than to commence our summer baseball season; I would encourage everyone to check back regularly to receive the latest updates as this situation continues to evolve.

NACSB April 8th Statement on COVID-19
April 9, 2020

The National Alliance of College Summer Baseball (NACSB) is monitoring developments of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it will affect summer baseball for our member leagues. We are engaging in regular alliance discussions as well as conversations with our partners at Major League Baseball.

The NACSB covers many different states and regions of the country. With states individually handling the bulk of the response and restrictions that are put in place, each league is faced with a different set of circumstances and unique challenges due to this pandemic.

Due to vast uncertainty about when the pandemic will safely pass and when social distancing requirements may be loosened, it is difficult to predict what kind of summer baseball season there will be this year. We expect to receive more guidance about this in the coming weeks. Each league is prepared with different contingency plans should it be deemed safe to host games.

Each summer the NACSB is home to over 4,500 college baseball players who hail from over 900 schools. Our leagues share a singular goal of helping college baseball players get back on the diamond this summer in preparation for the next college season or possibly a future in professional baseball. To achieve this, we encourage you to follow federal, state, and local orders. Stay safe, be patient, and please stay home.

The NACSB is an alliance of non-profit summer collegiate baseball leagues that are each partially funded by Major League Baseball. Members of the NACSB provide a platform for elite college baseball players to compete at a high level. Players are bound by NCAA eligibility and are sent to each member league by their college coach. Member leagues include: Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League, Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League, California Collegiate League, Cape Cod Baseball League, Florida Collegiate Summer League, Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League, Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League, New England Collegiate Baseball League, New York Collegiate Baseball League, Southern Collegiate Baseball League, Sunbelt Baseball League, Valley Baseball League.
