For 2021, the Diamond League has made a couple adjustments to its scheduling format:
1) Teams will play Tuesday only after the Diamond League Tournament.
2) The top 4 teams of each age division will play in a semifinal then a championship game.
We feel that both of these changes will enhance the opportunities for our teams to continue to excel in tournament play. With most tournaments starting on Thursday and ending on Sunday, playing a Tuesday only schedule allows players and teams to continue to enhance their skills against top talented teams.
There are many benefits for players to be playing in the Diamond League. The Diamond League is known across the state and beyond as the #1 league in Ohio by college coaches. We have a winter showcase where we have 25-30 colleges attending every year.
In addition, by being in a league, you are guaranteed games during the week. Non-league teams tend to cancel games or not schedule games during the week. In the southern U.S., baseball is played year around so players are playing 120 games in a year. In a cold weather locale such as Cleveland, it is important to take advantage of the summer months and play baseball. Our league is about top competition and improving skills with weekday games to go along with weekend tournaments.

The Diamond League is a highly competitive league based in Northeast Ohio. Many of our players move on to play in college while some are even drafted by Major League Baseball. The foundation of our league is not only the high quality of our teams, coaches and players but also its sportsmanship and fair play.
