An electric night with a full slate of action

Night two of the CSL was the first night with all 8 teams in action and it didn’t disappoint! 3 of the 4 games played were decided by 1 run in the 7th inning or later. The fan atmosphere was electric, the on-field play matched the energy and the sunset came out to play as well. Most players in the CSL are coming fresh off their high-school or college season and they were hungry to get back after it.

Extra Innings Roll Out 

The College Summer League aims to make baseball fun again. In that pursuit, we have created our own extra innings rule. This rule is optimized for chaos, strategy and fun. Once a game goes into extras, each team will come up to the plate with a runner on first and third, one out and full count.  This puts pressure on everyone involved, forcing the pitcher to throw a strike and the hitter to put the ball in play. The ideal outcome for the defense is to get a ground ball that leads to a double play and you’re out of the inning. 

We saw last night that this creates an incredible atmosphere, with fans from all four fields heading to watch the game that went into extras. A total of 5 runs were scored in the 8th inning alone and the Turf Monsters had the chance to walk it off but couldn’t deliver.  This takes the game to a whole new level of intensity, creates a pressure situation and it’s fun to watch the two teams play it out in this new format!
