About the SCBL

Established in 1999, the Southern Collegiate Baseball League is a summer collegiate wood bat baseball league within the greater Charlotte, NC area. The SCBL provides opportunities for college baseball players to experience wood bat baseball in preparation for the dream of one day playing professional baseball.

The SCBL is one of twelve leagues within the National Alliance of Collegiate Summer Baseball (NACSB). Leagues within the Alliance are partially funded by Major League Baseball and operate under NCAA rules and regulations.

As a staple of amateur baseball in the Carolinas, the Southern Collegiate Baseball League has provided opportunities for over 6,000 student athletes from all divisions of college baseball. The experiences provided are similar to those of a professional baseball player. Over 100 SCBL Alumni have played professionally, and many are currently coaching college and professional baseball. Beyond the field, league members participate in many community outreach programs and several have experienced mission trips in and outside the United States. Season highlights include the opportunity to compete for a league championship, as well as the opportunity to participate in the Southeastern Prospect Showcase attended by all MLB clubs.

Eligible players for the SCBL teams are college baseball athletes from a four-year NCAA or NAIA accredited institution or any junior colleges and community colleges. League teams hire trained coaches and support staff to insure proper development for each baseball athlete. League-by-laws require strict adherence to NCAA standards for summer baseball league and the Commissioner. League officers and team coaching staffs are all responsible for such compliance.

Host Family Info

The Queen City Baseball Club is currently seeking host families for the upcoming 2024 summer season. Host families must live within 30 minutes of Charlotte Latin School, where all homes games will be played.

Our players travel across the country to spend the summer here in the Queen City to further develop their baseball skills for the next step in their careers. They are student-athletes recruited by the Corndogs or recommended by a coach or professional scout because of their potential to succeed as a professional baseball player.

Our host families provide:

  • A room in a safe environment
  • Access to a bathroom
  • Access to laundry
  • Meals are at the discretion of the family

Hosting a player can provide inside access inside the life of a college baseball player, and it can provide an excellent role model for young children/teenagers and the ballplayers in your family. Many host families will develop strong relationships with their respective players and stay in touch with them throughout the rest of their careers.

Being a host family contains a certain amount of expectation. It is important to remember that you are being entrusted to provide essential comfort for the player by both the organization and his family members. In addition, these players are young adults and deserve a place in the house where they can go to rest, relax, and feel at home. Furthermore, we expect and require all players to be respectful to their host family as well as the rules of the household. Each family should be considerate of their player and their demanding baseball schedule.

All Host Families Receive:

  • (4) General Admission Season Tickets
  • (1) Signed Baseball by the entire Corndogs team
  • Invitation to special events

Thank you for your consideration to host a Corndog. We are looking forward to an exciting summer season!
