About the Valley Baseball League
The Valley League was formed in 1923 and became an NCAA-sanctioned league in 1961. The league adopted wooden bats in 1993. The VBL is funded in part by a grant from Major League Baseball and is a member of the National Alliance of College Summer Baseball, a national affiliation of summer leagues. The league has produced well over 1,000 professional baseball players.
All 12 teams as well as the League are not-for-profit. The Valley League name is derived from the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, which is nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Allegheny Mountains to the west.
The 12 teams play a two-division format. Each team plays a 44-game schedule beginning May 31st with playoffs beginning in the last week of July and extending into early August. The top four teams from each division will make up the 2013 playoff field.
