2018 HCSL TEAMS
 
In 2018, the HCSL will be host to 8 teams that will play a 21 game regular season, with games typically playing on Tuesday and Thursdays at Premier Baseball Complex.  Each team will play 3 games with 1 each 9-inning game on Tuesday nights and a doubleheader on Thursday nights.  In year 3, league teams, excluding the regular season champion and the regional qualifying tournament champions, will play a double elimination post season playoff (July 24-27).  The Regular Season Champions and the the Regional Qualifying Champions shall represent the Houston area at the 2018 NBC World Series in Wichita, KS.  

Those teams that wish to enter for a chance to participate AABC Stan Musial World Series will compete in the AABC Stan Musial South Plains Regional Tournament scheduled the last week of July.

The 2018 confirmed teams are:

   - Texas Cyclones    
   - NE Houston Pirates       
​   -  ​Premier Baseball - Texas Bandits

The HCSL primary mission will be to contineu to ensure safety, provide player development, and to provide a premier level of competition for its players and fans.  The league shall elect the top performers, as seen by MLB scouts, to the All-Star team which will then play one last time for our fans.

League tryouts and open drafts will not be a commitment or guarantee that a player is entered into the league.  It only provides the opportunity for the teams within the league to see and potentially draft a player based on skillsets.  There is not a limit to a teams roster size, however, most teams will have roughly 18 to 27 players on a roster to ensure sufficient number of players are available to play in the 3 games per week.  Players pre-recruited by teams are guaranteed, as long as that player remains with the team that recruited the player.  The rosters may be adjusted by the team staff or organization.  All players, to be eligible, must be registered on the team roster.  This is for insurance purposes.  Player's may not play for another team or organization, except if picked up for the regional or world series tournaments. 

It is up to the coaches to release a player from their roster.  Players may not change teams without both coaches/organizations submitting the waiver and the final approval of the league.
