The GLSCL was established by Major League Baseball in order to develop college baseball prospects and is one of many summer collegiate baseball circuits throughout the country that has produced numerous major league players over the years. Although the play is highly competitive, all GLSCL players are NCAA eligible and are unpaid in order to maintain their amateur eligibility.
Each GLSCL team is operated similar to a professional Minor League Baseball team, providing players an opportunity to perform under the same conditions using wooden bats, minor league specification baseballs and parks, experiencing overnight road trips and playing nightly before fans in a ballpark.
Minor league prospects include Kyle Bluestein, Tyler Hollstegge, Zach Isler, Ian Kadish, Jorge Marban, Steve Matre, Dave Middendorf, Joseph O'Gara, Jake Proctor, Danny Rosenbaum, , Nate Smith, and Seth Willoughby.
