Texas Collegiate League
Founded in 2004, the Texas Collegiate League is a Summer Collegiate Baseball league with five teams playing throughout the state of Texas. Sanctioned by the Major League Baseball all players are NCAA eligible and are unpaid in order to maintain their eligibility. The Texas Collegiate League exists to provide experience for professional prospects from colleges throughout the country.
Each team is operated in a similar manner to a professional minor league team, providing players an opportunity to play under the same conditions using wooden bats, minor league specification baseballs, experiencing overnight road trips and playing nightly before fans in a stadium. The Texas Collegiate league is commited to providing quality, inexpensive entertainment in a small-town, intimate atmosphere that is distinctively Texan, while helping promote the game of baseball in the communities involved.
The Brazos Valley Bombers are the TCL's flagship franchise.
