(LOS ANGELES, CA) — The California Collegiate League is proud to announce new formats for both the 2020 season and 2020 playoffs. This year the CCL will have a regional style, 5-team double elimination tournament with a winner takes all championship game.

The State Championship Tournament presented by Placer Valley Tourism will be held in Lincoln, Calif. at McBean Stadium, home of the Lincoln Potters. The tournament will run from Friday, July 31, through Sunday, August 2.

The CCL regular season will have a 3-Division format featuring North, Central and South Divisions. The North Division features the Healdsburg Prune Packers, Lincoln Potters, Solano Mudcats, and Walnut Creek Crawdads. Central Division teams include the San Luis Obispo Blues, Santa Barbara Foresters, and Conejo Oaks. The South Division teams are the Arroyo Seco Saints, MLB Academy Barons, and the Orange County Riptide.

Each division winner will qualify for the 5-team tournament. There will be two wild card teams joining the division winners–one wild card from the North and one wild card from the Central and South divisions.

The league will host its annual mid-season All-Star Prospect game on July 15 at the MLB Youth Academy in Compton, Calif. The CCL showcase will be televised nationally on Fox Sports.
