Founded in 2002, the Atlantic Baseball Confederation Collegiate League is an eight-team Summer Collegiate Baseball league which operates teams located throughout New Jersey.

The ABC is a player development league and seeks to provide a venue for college players who wish to develop their skills to enter the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft to play baseball in an environment of increased competition. All Atlantic Baseball Confederation athletes are unpaid in order to maintain their NCAA eligibility. 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.

Many players have played in the ABCCL and gone on to sign professional contracts.
