      The Lewis & Clark Baseball League, or LCBL, is a collegiate summer baseball league based in St. Louis, Missouri. Teams are assembled with top college talent; nearly half the league coming from states beyond Missouri and Illinois. Dormitory housing is available for the out-of-town players. Founded by Nicholas R. A. Mahrt in 2013, this upstart amateur baseball season runs from June through early August in the St. Louis metropolitan area. It is a non-profit organization and the founding member of the Leagues of Extraordinary Gentlemen — a nationwide collection of baseball leagues that put the emphasis on student-athlete's summer work/study opportunities. Players are not paid, as to maintain their college eligibility and amateur status; their ages range from 18-23.

      Players choose to exclusively compete during the week or on the weekends; breaking the teams into two even conferences, the Lewis and the Clark. Teams are scheduled to play 37 games over a nine-week season, culminating in an early-August playoff. The playoffs consist of a best-of-three Discovery Cup Series, matching the two division winners in the Lewis Conference and the two in the Clark Conference. After the best of the weekdend and weekday are crowned, these conference champions meet in a one-game, winner-take-all title game at Busch Stadium. The current league champions, the winners of the 2013 Corps of Discovery Cup, are the Explorers.

      Miller Orthopedics serves as the platinum sponsor for the Lewis & Clark Baseball League. As a former pupil of world-renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews, Dr. Mark Miller provides sports medicine support to the finest athletes in the region. Should the need arise, LCBL players will experience the same level of medical expertise as members of the St. Louis Rams and St. Louis Cardinals.   

      Most equipment items (jersey, on-field game cap, batting practice cap, batting helmet, etc.) are included in the player's registration fee. Also inclusive are sets of discounted tickets to two select St. Louis Cardinals home games. The deal operates as a league fundraiser, giving players an opportunity to up-sell the tickets to defer the $625 cost of participating in the league. It also presents a partnership that allows the LCBL to use a major league facility for its midseason All-Star Game.

      Player registration annually opens in November of the previous year; it triggers the official recruitment period, where student-athletes can commit to playing with a particular LCBL team. The league has grown from four teams to ten and will reach its peak expansion, 12 teams, in 2015.

      The Lewis & Clark Baseball League is the proud summer home for aspiring student-athletes from over 50 colleges and universities across all three levels of the NCAA, both divisions of the NJCAA, and the NAIA.

      Our Mission to Produce Better Student-Athletes

      36 schools represented by LCBL players made U.S. News & World Report's 2013 National "Best Colleges" List

      "College coaches entrust that, come Fall, we will return a better baseball player to their campus. They fear their players will develop rust if the summer is spent away from the game; not truly thinking about the student-athlete's best interest. Players need a league where they will use their summer getting better on the field, but also get better focused on what their coursework will lead to, upon graduation. If baseball is complemented by a taste of professional work experience, the player, the player's family, and the entire school — not just the baseball program — will be satisfied by who emerges from that summer league."   
      Commissioner, Nicholas Mahrt
