Junior College

Though it may not be the lowest calibre of College Baseball, the Junior College leagues are usually listed last in the College divisions. The only reason is that Junior Colleges are 2-year programs. There are a lot of Junior Colleges across the country with many of them being of quite high calibre and consistent feeders of players to the bigger 4-year schools. I tis not uncommon to see future Major Leaguers coming through the JC route.

Though we maintain the banner of Junior Colleges, there are in fact 3 separate geographical JC divisions listed on the site. The National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA) covers most of the United States, from East coast to the states before the Pacific Coast. The Pacific Coast has their own JC Leagues. The CCCAA is the California Community College Athletic Association and has more than a dozen conferences with 6-10 teams each. The Northwest Athletic Conferences covers the Washington/Oregon/Idaho/British Columbia area. The league has 4 divisions with about 8 teams each.

Junior College stats are captured since 2017 in full with some missing NWAC schools (its hard to capture these stats) and some schools going further back than 2017. The stats may have missing columns as not all standard stats are published.
