The Expedition League emulates minor league baseball with players using wood bats and playing 64 games in a 75-day season in front of large crowds in some of the finest ballparks in North America. EL players are top-tier collegiate baseball players from across the country who gain exposure to professional scouts. The players stay with host families from the local communities. Host families are a very integral part of the Expedition League, and these host family relationships provide a lifetime of memories for both the host families and the players.
League-affiliated teams are involved in various non-profits and community fundraising activities. Expedition League players are positive role models in the community, making public appearances and participating in baseball clinics for the youth in their community. The Expedition League and its teams showcase the communities that we are a part of and enhance the quality of life in those communities.
