Important MSBL ‘Player Pool’ Update

By Steve LaMontia, Director of Communications

Greetings!  MSBL is implementing a new procedure regarding our management of our popular ‘Player Pool’ website page to better assist managers and players alike to come together and participate in our MSBL national tournaments.

We feel that the tournament category of ‘Any’ is too vague and has become too extensive and outdated while missing the mark in our attempt to make it easy for a manager to review the entries to fill their specific roster needs.  Especially with the new ‘search’ box located on the player pool page we want to make it easy for someone to punch in a specific tournament need instead of the broad description of ‘Any’ and then have to make countless contacts that may not be applicable. Try the new search box to narrow your search. It is an amazing tool!

To that conclusion we have designed specific tournament codes for players to fill in within the ‘tournament’ section of the submission form to narrow down a manager search.  However, if you truly want to consider playing in every national tournament then simply fill in each of the codes instead of ‘Any.’

Here is a listing of the new codes for your consideration:

WS-World Series

FC-Fall Classic

HC-Holiday Classic

DC-Desert Classic

KC-Kickoff Classic

LO-Las Vegas Open

BH-Beat the Heat Classic

CC-Caribbean Classic

We will continue to help you if you wish to compete in one of our regional tournaments held throughout the year. Simply fill in the tournament you are requesting and we will post it individually for you.

Regarding all ‘Any’ tournament requests that have been already posted, we obviously needed to clean up and streamline our outdated page to make it more efficient.  There were way too many outdated entries and it’s a good time for a little housecleaning and get back to making the process more seamless going forward so we have eliminated all ‘Any’ tournament entries.  Please re-submit your request, if you wish to remain active, utilizing the new codes so that we can remain fresh.

If you have any questions you can send an email to

You can immediately begin to submit your Player Pool requests utilizing the new codes.  The new codes are displayed on the Player Pool page for your convenience and every entry is up to date.

Thank you for your assistance and we’ll see you somewhere in the dirt in 2020!
