Then again, I can't speak for him, so it's his decision.[/quote]
On their latest list, there are about 15 leagues:
They vary in terms of budget and organization (Jayhawk, Alaska, MINK, California Collegiate -- high budget, high degree of organization; Walter Johnson (where our beloved Newton Rebels play), River City Victory (which is actually more an advanced adult league), low budget, low organization).
You know the can of worms you've opened up with adding coverage of collegiate wood-bat leagues. I thought adding major junior hockey was ambitious.
But I must insist the Valley League have its own page and board. Pretty please.
The Valley League is among the oldest and most respected of such leagues, has several established, even historic franchises, sports some of summer's most attractive and unique venues, is relatively stable and is expanding.
The Valley League is a college-level baseball institution, and rightfully should be covered in the same vein as Cape Cod, Northwoods, Coastal Plain, Jayhawk, California, etc.
(Disclaimer: I have no official affiliation with the Valley or any other collegiate wood-bat league. I just really dig it. Guys, do yourselves a favor and check out Front Royal's ballpark someday.)
Reason: Misplaced sentence.
paducah and maykield,ky are possible expansions for 2011 or 2012
Reason: added website
Jerry Bell started the TSCBA last year but not sure on his teams this year . Tennessee Summer Collegiate Baseball Association .
There is also the Great Plains Baseball League that the Rockford Foresters are part of. Rockford is gonna have Pointstreak mange its stats this year, not sure about the rest of the league.
Baseball America is scouting 18 leagues, which seems like a good filter of worthwhile leagues.

I give my vote to the NECBL.
