CSBL completes second season

The second season of the Baseball U of Pennsylvania College Summer League found more than half of the positions on the four teams being filled by graduates of District 2 high schools.

The league is for players continuing baseball in college and included players who are already active on the collegiate level as well as some 2021 high school graduates who have commitments to play on the next level.

Team Black finished first in the regular season at 18-5, followed by: Team White 11-11, Team Orange 11-12 and Team Camo 5-17.

Lower seeds winning in the semifinals led to a championship game where Orange won the title over Camo.
