The big leaguers are all in spring training now getting ready for the 2014 season so it's time for the rest of us to knock the dust off our gloves and to start getting ready for our upcoming season as well. The MSABL 2014 season will kick off with games on Sunday May 4th. While the season schedule hasn't been finalized yet I can tell you that we will have games every Sunday afternoon starting on May 4th going through the end of August with the following exceptions: Mothers Day on May 11th, Memorial Day weekend on May 25th and the 4th of July weekend on July 6th.
We will once again have a post season tournament that will be played after the regular season ends. The tournament will be played over 3 weekends starting the weekend after Labor Day.
This year, as with all previous years, our local league will be affiliated with the National Men's Senior Baseball League (MSBL). By being affiliated with them we as players have the opportunity to participate in any of the National and Regional tournaments sponsored by the MSBL. Several of us have participated in these tournaments over the years and it's a great added benefit to being part of an MSBL league. If you want more information on the tournaments or how to participate you can go to the National MSBL web site at http://www.msblnational.com and click on the tournament link. You can also hunt out all of us old timers that have played in some of these tournaments in the past for some additional information.
Now get out there and get ready to play some baseball.
