2022 Memphis Warriors Dominate on Way to 40+ Championship of Mid-South MSBL (Memphis)
Here is a summary of the Warriors Championship 2022 Season, as provided by Warrior’s manager Maurice Howard
“The Memphis Warriors of the Memphis Adult Baseball League played a high level of competitive baseball the entire summer. Their outstanding play led to an outright league championship with an 11-2 record. The team’s competitive play carried throughout the league tournament, going undefeated (3-0), and eventually winning the championship game by a score of 8-2.”
Below is a Mid-South (Memphis) History Lesson by League President Paul Tingley
“The Memphis MSBL started in 1996 for 30-over players. It had developed into an 18+ and 28+ format by 2005 and eventually just a 28+ division with about six teams. Glenn Mayfield was running the Memphis MSBL and started a fall wood bat league for over 40-year-old players. Glenn was running both leagues until he eventually handed the younger league over to another President, though it dissolved a few years later.
The Mid-South 40+ started out with two teams as a pick-up format in 2008 and the next year we had three teams with five spring and seven fall games. The Mid-South Adult Baseball League was officially founded in 2009 and in 2010 started full summer play and in 2011 had four teams. We peaked at seven teams in 2014 but currently have six teams in the 40+ division and are trying to form a 55+ division this year with enough players for three teams.”
