Northwoods League, Collegiate Baseball League Europe Announce Partnership
Ballparkbiz.com

The Northwoods League announced a unique partnership today with Collegiate Baseball League Europe. The main piece of this partnership will see six of the top European players that play in the CBLE during the 2014 season given the chance to play in the Northwoods League during the 2015 season.

The teams in the CBLE consist of the La Rochelle Admirals (France), Sant Boi Falcons (Barcelona, Spain), London Cavaliers (United Kingdom) and the Oosterhout Bombers (Netherlands).

This partnership will also create other opportunities between the two leagues. The Northwoods League will place a link on NorthwoodsLeague.com allowing interested American college players the chance to apply to play in not only the Northwoods League but also to apply to play in the CBLE. The two leagues will also collaborate to offer fans of both the NWL and CBLE the opportunity to purchase league and team branded merchandise via links on each league’s online store.
