Empire State Collegiate League

Sports Zone Empire State Collegiate League (Formerly ICBL) is a 24-game scheduled collegiate baseball league.  All the games  are double headers and will be played on Wednesdays and Sundays.  90% of the players that play in the league have just completed their freshman or sophomore year of college. 

  Our mission is to better prepare our 18U players and current college players for their college seasons.  College leagues are generally not available for graduating HS seniors.  With the formation of the Sports Zone Empire State Collegiate League, we have provided an incredible opportunity for Sports Zone graduating seniors to compete in a full summer collegiate schedule.  They play against proven college players from all over NYS.  We first entered this league in 2016 (Then called the Thruway College League) and did very well.  More importantly, each player by the time they went off to college that September, had already played 30+ games against college level players.  The intimidation factor and initial nervousness of day 1 college baseball basically had disappeared.  Our SZ players were ready to play and compete by the time they stepped on their college campus.  In the past there was no way to provide this opportunity.
