We're proud of the reputation our league has developed since a modest beginning in 2005, and we plan to build on our strong reputation. The West Coast League has become The Diamond Standard of summer collegiate baseball.
Coaches trust that their players will receive strong instruction in a professional atmosphere, and return to their programs as better players. Players quickly discover a challenging level of play and an atmosphere that matches the minor league conditions many will soon experience.
The West Coast League has a demanding schedule, travel and wood bats that test prospects, preparing them for the pros. Coaches and players live with host families and play in front of large crowds in a range of intimate ball parks from old minor league parks to state-of-the-art collegiate stadiums.
Our member teams recruit players nationwide and are committed to developing aspiring pros. No college summer league has ever had as many drafted student-athletes and alumni reaching the big leagues so early in its history.
Our teams are also dedicated to enriching their communities, and our member communities are devoted to their hometown teams. The environment is nurturing, the atmosphere thrilling and the setting as good as it gets.
No league has more breathtaking geography. No league features the professional-style schedule of the West Coast League, with extended road trips and home stands. No league can match the dedication and economic strength of our owners. No league has more experienced leadership. No league can equal the experience and level of competence of our umpires. No league can brag about better community involvement and support from fans. And, no league shows the attendance growth the West Coast League enjoys season after season.
At a young age, our league has truly become The Diamond Standard of summer collegiate baseball.
