About the Northwoods League
The Northwoods League is the largest summer baseball league in North America. Comprised of 16 teams with the top college players from across the nation, the Northwoods League has more teams, plays more games, and draws more fans than any other Summer Collegiate Baseball League. The League's 16 affiliates are located throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, and Ontario. All players in the league must have NCAA eligibility remaining in order to participate and are not paid (this preserves their NCAA eligibility).
Each team is operated similarly to a professional minor league team, providing players the opportunity to use wooden bats, play with minor league specification baseballs, experience overnight road trips, and play nightly in front of large crowds.
During the regular school year when the players are on their university teams, they use composite aluminum bats. Wood Bat Leagues allow players who have aspirations to play professional baseball the opportunity to get experience playing with wood bats. It also allows scouts from Major League Baseball teams to see how hitters fare with wood bats.
• Since its inception in 1994, 95 Northwoods League alumni have made it to the Major League level. Some notable alumni include (listed along with their position and current Major League team):
• The Northwoods League leads all collegiate summer leagues throughout the country in attendance year in and year out giving players the opportunity to play in front of appreciative crowds.
