Eighteen returning members of the Youngstown State baseball team will be active in summer leagues across the country this season as they look to showcase their skills and develop for the 2018-19 season.

The Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League will be the busiest spot for Penguins this summer as six members of the program will play in the 14-team league. Three Penguins will play in the Northwoods League, three will play in the Prospect League, and the other six Penguins will play in different leagues. Chad Coles and Jeff Wehler will be teammates with the Butler BlueSox of the Prospect League, and Dalton Earich and Joel Hake will both pitch for the Southern Ohio Copperheads.

Below is a table of the returning Penguins who are playing in collegiate leagues and links to their respective teams.
