Collegiate Summer League Baseball
Do NOT be "put off" by the words "Collegiate". To the eye, CSL's run the same as any minor league baseball system. These leagues usually play in former Minor League stadiums or locally historical ballparks and the only difference between CSL's and minor league baseball is that these players don't get paid and because of this... everything (tickets, concessions) is much cheaper. These ballplayers take the field to showcase themselves both to you and probably quite a few Major League scouts in attendance in a summer long All-Star game of the best NCAA players. What's different than regular collegiate baseball is that these teams are playing in a minor league style setting and schedule so that scouts can see how they may perform once they're drafted into the minors and whether they can handle the pressure of MiLB.
