Los Angeles, CA — After 11 weeks of coordination and exhausting all potential scenarios within our power to conduct the 2020 summer season, the California Collegiate League is regretful to announce that we will suspend operations for 2020. With that, comes the cancellation of our 2020 Championship Season, our nationally-televised All-Star Prospect Game, and our first-ever State Tournament.

The CCL has met weekly over the last two months working to formulate a plan that would allow a season to occur, while operating within ever-changing state and local guidelines and restrictions. Unfortunately, our drop-dead date of June 3 arrived before we were able to discern a path to effectively operate a season. Our geography, the physical distance between our teams, and the different regulations as they vary by county, played a primary role in preventing the league to operate homogenously. In addition, the residual socioeconomic effects of the coronavirus pandemic have hindered the possibility of normal operations for many of our teams.

While 2020 has effectively concluded for us, we are anxiously looking to the future and know that 2021 has the potential to be our best season yet. We will return 10 strong, quality teams that are focused on continuing our mission of being player-centric while providing the highest level of collegiate summer baseball. To all of those involved–players, coaches, parents, volunteers, and fans–we will miss you this summer and we are looking forward to seeing you in 2021.
