Welcome to the Official Website of The Atlantic Baseball Confederation Collegiate League

The site is designed to provide players, coaches, scouts, and fans with a wealth of information about the ABCCL, its teams, and their players.

Entering our 15th season of play, the ABCCL has established a well-earned reputation for high-quality play and a unique spirit of cooperation and partnership with college programs throughout New Jersey, the Atlantic Region and beyond.

Along with schedules, standings and statistics, we will be constantly adding valuable tips to help our players both on and off the field, reprints of interesting editorial coverage, reports on League events and activities, recaps of outstanding performances, player profiles, and a host of other useful, thought-provoking, or just plain entertaining “stuff” about the college game.

Please check the schedule of games. Chances are there’s one in your area (directions to all League fields are included for your convenience). Then come out and enjoy baseball as it was meant to be -- the sound of our wood bats, the skillful flashes of leather in the field, green grass, blue sky and, most of all, the enthusiasm and baseball talent on display each and every week.
