The league is for men who love the game of baseball. SAMSBL is in its third decade of existence. We have tryouts once a year in February. We all pay to play from mid-March until August for league games (about 21 games) on weekends. Tournaments are extra and usually occur over the major holidays throughout the summer. The grand finale is the National World Series in Phoenix, AZ during October.

May 6, 2018

June 2018 is published. Notice 2 Factors.

1. We are moving to MBA Field 4 with 9 AM, 12:45, & 4 PM starts. 3 slots per day on Field 4, both Saturday and Sunday.

2. Expect to play many games in June, intentionally. A make-up approach for only 2 weekends in May. And, to wrap up regular season during July for playoffs in August.

Notice "As of" date. Changes, if any, will be in RED.

MBA Updates: No Coolers. Gate Fee.

April 2, 2018

MBA is an active Select Ball Park. Expect games at all fields every weekend the SAMSBL plays.

As a result, every League guest will be charged a gate entry fee. In addition, all Players are NOT to bring in any coolers or ice chest of any kind.

Expect the Concessions to be opened during our time on site.

So, to repeat: A new regime has taken over. No outside food nor drink is allowed through gate. And, guests will be charged.

LEAGUE RULES REMINDER

January 1, 2018

This policy is meant to be right up front.

Several 2018 National Tournaments are on the horizon. In order to participate in these events, players need to be SAMSBL league members.

To attend the National World Series, a player or team needs to have participated in the SAMSBL league. The SAMSBL has a strict policy regarding tournament players. All League Members sign their respective waivers agreeing to the policy. Any player needs a release from me to play on any other team in the nation.

If you play in the SAMSBL, then support the SAMSBL with your talents on the tournament teams at all times. Even pool players need a release. We send over a dozen teams to state and national tournaments. There is room for all who wish to go.

Dick has asked for those continued prayers from all his SAMSBL friends for Harriet, please.
