Florida Collegiate Summer League

This Central Florida-based collegiate wood-bat baseball league is considered a breeding ground for major league hopefuls: This year alone, 27 current and former Florida League players were taken in the 2013 MLB draft. And for Orlando baseball fans looking to catch a game at the ballpark, every summer the Florida League offers more than 100 games per season, with six teams playing all around the area – from DeLand to Leesburg to Sanford to College Park. The full roster of evening games sees to it that the grown-ups enjoy the game with cold beer in hand while the kiddies go wild with on-field activities. Plus the tickets are only $5, so you might also consider it the best bet for watching future major leaguers in action.
