The Venezuelan Summer League is a rookie-level league which operates in Estado Aragua and Estado Carabobo in northern Venezuela. The league consists of the academy teams of Major League Baseball organizations. The league currently has nine teams which may have players from any Latin American country except for the Dominican Republic, which has its own league, and Puerto Rico, whose players are eligible to be drafted by MLB clubs. The VSL was founded in 1997 following the success of the Dominican Summer League. Baseball in Venezuela goes back much further in winter play with the Venezuelan League.
