The 2016 inaugural season of the Diamond League Major/Collegiate division was a great success. We had 6 collegiate teams in our first season comprised of local college players from D1, D2 and D3. In addition each collegiate team played crossover games against the LEBL Unlimited League which is the top unlimited league in the Northeast Ohio.
This league gives the best of both worlds. You will play against top quality summer collegiate teams and be able to play all of your games in Northeast Ohio. There is no travel to Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, etc. This allows our teams to keep their costs down yet play against great competition.
In addition, the Diamond League is an established NABF Franchise. So our teams will be able to play for bids to the NABF Tournaments which is the largest Collegiate Association in the country. The NABF World Series is in Toledo, Ohio and all games are televised. This past year, the Blaze from our league won the bid to the NABF Collegiate World Series in Toledo and made the semifinals!
If you have a collegiate summer team or are in the process of putting one together, we would love to have your team in the Diamond League Collegiate division.
