League General info:

Don’t Go Soft – Play Hardball!

The Men’s Senior Baseball League (MSBL)/Men’s Adult Baseball League (MABL) is a national organization with 300 local affiliates, 3,000 teams and more than 40,000 members who play organized amateur baseball in local leagues, 25 regional tournaments and two national tournaments. The MSBL/MABL World Series and Fall Classic take place every November in Arizona and Florida, respectively, employing the finest fields offered. Our national tournaments hosted a total of 386 teams in 1998 making them the largest amateur baseball tournaments in the world.

 

Purpose:

The MSBL/MABL is committed to providing the player who is age 18 & over and 35 & 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.

 

Profile:

The MSBL/MABL is the fastest-growing adult baseball organization in the country. Started in 1986 with 60 members, the MSBL/MABL is now 40,000 strong. By the end of this decade, 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 two 7-inning games played once a week, generally on Sundays.

Both the MSBL and the MABL plan to expand by establishing local units in communities where programs do not exist, and also by welcoming existing amateur hardball leagues to affiliate.
