Intercity Baseball League 2020 Teams

2021 INTERCITY LEAGUE REGULAR SEASON SCHEDULE TO BEGIN JUNE 1

After taking the 2020 season off due to Covid-19 concerns, the ICL will be back in full action starting June 1.

The ICL Board of Directors and each of its teams are eagerly looking forward to the 2021 season. Last season’s interruption was the first time since 1950 that the ICL did not conduct a season.

The league will play an slightly abbreviated 24 game regular schedule with a full slate of playoffs to follow. The 24 game campaign will allow for some flexibility in the schedule as well as accommodate the later than usual local high school baseball season which the ICL shares some fields with.

Let’s play ball!!!
