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.

LEAGUE RULES REMINDER

January 1, 2017

This policy is meant to be right up front.

Several 2017 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 a regional or local tournament. 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.

February 21, 2017

January 14, 2017

A BIG, BIG day. ALL World Series Ring bearers over the years are invited to the latest gathering of SAMSBL DAY at the County Court House February 21.

Details to follow here, but know that the SAMSBL teams won 3 more national titles this past October. Each team will receive the recognition it richly deserves at Commissioners' Court with a formal Proclamation presented by the Commissioners.

Therefore, all ring winners over the years are invited to attend this extravaganza to let the County and City know who we are and what we do!

All Managers are to inform their teammates about this event. I will need a head count for the Commissioners.
