What is MSBL?
The Men’s Senior Baseball League (MSBL)/Men’s Adult Baseball League (MABL) is the premier amateur baseball league for adults 18 years of age and older. Founded in 1988, it is the fastest-growing adult baseball organization in the country. The league has 325 local affiliates, 3,200 teams and 45,000 members who play organized amateur baseball in local leagues, 30 regional tournaments and six national tournaments. Both the MSBL and the MABL plan to expand by establishing local affiliates in communities where programs do not exist, and also by welcoming existing amateur hardball leagues to affiliate. The MSBL is poised to reach 50,000 members in the very near future. If you are an MSBL member you are part of something great! Don’t settle for anything less.
Do I need to have played professional baseball to join?
The MSBL was founded on a basic principle, to allow adults to continue to play the game that they love, at the level of competition they are comfortable at. While MSBL has many ex-professional and collegiate players that have and currently play within the 325 leagues across the country, the majority of our players are men that just enjoy the game they grew up playing, many who last played in High School or College. Most leagues have different competitive divisions to fit players of all abilities.
How much does it cost to join?
This varies from each league as field, umpire and administration costs differ based on location and the quality of fields used. The national MSBL registration fee is $26 per player and that is paid once per year. All other funds are handled at the local level. For more information, please contact the local league President in your area.
