Established in the summer of 2017, the GNCBL strives to meet the needs of those college baseball players who want a competitive place to work on their skills without having to travel extensively. The ability to play quality ball while having a “home-base” allows for solid employment schedules, taking advantage of internship opportunities, and other activities, while they increase their baseball acuity to better help their college teams.

The League has seen steady growth since its' inception, starting with 4 teams in 2017, 5 in 2018, and 6 in 2019 forward. It has attracted ballplayers from schools all over New England and beyond. Below, see the  75+ different schools that have sent players to the GNCBL, spanning across all collegiate divisions. The league features the Nor' Easters, Norsemen, Patriots, and Windjammers, Lumberjacks and Anglers. The season consists of a 25 game schedule and runs from early June through playoffs in mid-August. 

 

Ballplayers have shown their talents all across the League, creating parity among the teams. The Norsemen won the league championship in 2017 and 2018 while the Nor'easters bested the Patriots in the 2019 championship series to take home the GNCBL crown. And then in 2020 it all came together for the Anglers and they went undefeated throughout the playoffs to claim bragging rights as the 2020 League Champs.
