Boise Summer League
The Boise Summer League was one of only a few Summer Collegiate Baseball Leagues operating out of a single city. While the Boise Summer League attracts collegiate athletes from across the nation who are interested in developing their skills to enter the MLB Amateur Draft, all BSL game are held within the Boise, ID metropolitan area. Like other Summer Collegiate Baseball Leagues, all Boise Summer League players are NCAA eligible and are unpaid in order to maintain their eligibility and live with host families in a similar manner to Single A and Independent League players. Likewise, each Boise Summer League team is operated in a similar manner to a professional minor league team: recruiting, providing players an opportunity to play under the same conditions using wooden bats, minor league specification equipment, experiencing overnight road trips and playing nightly before fans in a stadium.
