Six-team league will play at CarShield Field started July 1
O’FALLON, Mo. – The O’Fallon Hoots today announced the launch of the CarShield Collegiate League to play at CarShield Field this summer. The League comes after the announcement of the Prospect League canceling the 2020 summer season.
“The CarShield Collegiate League will showcase local, high-caliber college baseball players to our great O’Fallon community,” Hoots General Manager David Schmoll said. “This spring and summer has seen players lose their seasons and fans lose sports. We are excited to still be able to provide community entertainment in a safe and responsible fashion.”
The CarShield Collegiate League will host a six-team league with teams made up of primarily local players playing all games at CarShield Field in O’Fallon. Each team will play 30, 7-inning games.
Team managers include Missouri State University Baseball’s Director of Player Development Joe Lincoln, former First Round Draft Pick Jake Burger, Maryville University Assistant Baseball Coach Justin Paulsen and former Lindenwood University baseball player and Director of Human Performance at P3 Josh Kesel. Rosters and additional coaching staff hires will be announced at a later date.
