A wooden bat league following NCAA baseball rules and guidelines.

Media Release 20.01: 2020 Coronavirus Update


The Ohio Valley League is looking forward to our 10th Season of Summer Collegiate Wooden Bat Baseball during 2020 in Hometowns across Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Our League is hopefully optimistic that the sacrifices already made and those being made now will create a “flattening of the curve” with this virus before our season begins 10 weeks from now. Just like every baseball player and fan in America, we will monitor the advisories and recommended precautions from national, state, and local health officials. While conditions are changing daily, we continue to prepare for our Summer season. Since the collegiate Spring baseball season was cut short, we understand that Summer baseball this year becomes even more significant. The OVL’s primary concern remains the health and safety of all our players, coaches, fans, families, and staff so they can enjoy our great game.

We have a group of very talented players headed our way in 2 1/2 months. Mark your calendars, our 40-game regular Season starts on the last Friday in May. We will once again crown our post season tournament Champions the first weekend of August.
