The Venezuelan Summer League is a minor league baseball rookie league which operates in the Major League Baseball's academies in the Venezuelan states of Carabobo and Aragua. The VSL was created in 1997 as an alternative to the Dominican Summer League to improve the development of young prospects from Venezuela in their early years in organized baseball.
