The Mid-Plains League is a collegiate summer baseball league comprising teams of the top college players from North America and beyond.[1][2][3] 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.
