Live baseball is back in the United States starting tonight, with the first game of the Collegiate Summer Baseball Invitational. The tournament will feature players from over all over the country, hand-picked by the CSBI coaching staffs.
The invitational features four teams and will be played over the next three days in Bryan, Texas. The weekend-long event will allow players who missed out on their spring season to impress scouts ahead of the MLB draft later this month.
Then invitational marks the return of live baseball to the United States. MLB Spring Training camps were shut down in mid-March and the final NCAA baseball games played in 2020 were during the weekend of March 13.
Fans can watch the first two games tonight on ESPN2. The opening game will take place at 7 p.m. ET with the second game following at 10 p.m. The first game will feature the Unity and Liberty teams while game two will be between teams Freedom and Independence.
ESPN broadcasters Jason Benetti and Kyle Peterson will be on the call for the first two games tonight. The final two days of the event will be available to fans via online streaming and pay-per-view, details of which can be found here.
