Don't go soft, play hard ball!!
The Men's Senior Baseball League (MSBL) / Men's Adult Baseball League (MABL) is a national organisation with 325 local affiliates, 3,200 teams and 44,000 members who play organised amateur baseball in local leagues, regional tournaments (25) and national tournaments (4) in the USA.
The MSBL / MABL World Series and Fall Classic take place every October / November in Arizona and Florida respectively, employing the finest fields offered. Their national tournaments hosted a total of 475 teams in 2002 making them the largest amateur baseball tournaments in the World. The MSBL / MABL is an idea whose time has come. Just because a person is 18, 28, 38, 48 or over, doesn't mean he loves playing baseball any less.
The MSBL / MABL is committed to providing the player who is age 18 and over, 28 and over and 38 and over the opportunity to play real baseball at a competitive level on a regular basis in a professionally run environment. Membership in the MSBL / MABL often opens doors to new friendships and business contacts that go beyond the white lines and beyond the local community.
The MSBL / MABL is the fastest growing adult baseball organisation in the USA. Started in 1986 with 60 members, the MSBL / MABL is now 44,000 strong. Within a few short years membership is projected to exceed 50,000. Among the members are doctors, lawyers, local businessmen, former professional athletes and average working men. All are united by a common passion for playing and enjoying baseball.
MSBL / MABL members are serious amateur athletes of various skill levels. They exhibit a special commitment in their chosen sports, in their professions and as contributors to the well being of their communities.
Aside from a few rule changes, the MSBL / MABL conforms to standard baseball rules with major league style or replica uniforms, carefully kept statistics and nine-inning games played once a week, generally on Sundays.
Both the MSBL and MABL plan to expand by establishing local units in communities where programs do not exist and also by welcoming existing amateur hard ball leagues to affiliate.
