The Mid-Plains League is a collegiate summer baseball league comprising teams of the top college players from North America and beyond. Players are not paid, so as to maintain their college eligibility. Teams are run similarly to a professional minor league team, providing players an opportunity to play under the same conditions, using wooden bats and NCAA specification baseballs.
Teams play 36 games scheduled over a 44-day season running from early June to mid-July. The winner of the postseason playoffs will be named the Mid-Plains League champion and claim the Brett Cowdin Memorial Cup.
