Find a League In Your Area
By Steve LaMontia, Director of Communications
A few weeks ago we published a plea from San Quentin baseball program
director Michael Kremer looking for teams to play inside the friendly confines
against the inmates. The response was
very positive and many teams contacted Michael for more information. Below is some updated details and answers to
frequently asked questions, as well as a couple of links to forms you’ll need
to fill out.
If you need to contact Michael directly his email is firstname.lastname@example.org or phone him at 415-246-4343. Michael can send you the
additional forms needed, such as the clearance forms for your team and the
primary rules and laws.

Thank you for your interest in playing
baseball at San Quentin! First of all, my apologies for the delay in
responding. We have been inundated with requests to play at SQ since the posting went up on the MSBL website – certainly a good
problem to have, and we’ll try our best to find a way to ensure that every team
that is interested has an opportunity to play.
Given the high demand, we will be
allocating these open slots on a first-come, first-serve basis. We request that
you do your best to submit the required paperwork (detailed below) within two
weeks so that we can be sure that the prison has the necessary time to process
all players for entry. We are also working on adding some game slots on
Sunday evenings this summer and on Saturdays and Sundays in October and will
keep the teams on this list updated once that is confirmed.
We have the following game slots currently
Thank you all for you interest in playing
at San Quentin. It is an unforgettable experience for everyone involved, and on
behalf of the program I look forward to welcoming you into the prison for a

San Quentin – Clearance Process and FAQs
Clearance for Entry: prior to clearing teams for entry, the
prison runs background checks on each individual prison. The following
information is required:
Please send the
fully-completed 181s and Gate Clearance forms to me and I will send them to the
prison for processing. It is critical to send these items at your earliest
convenience, as the clearance process takes 4-6 weeks to complete depending
upon the number of players and workload at the prison. You will not be able to
play in the prison until this process is completed.
