ABOUT THE MSL
The Midwest Suburban
Baseball League (MSL) was founded in 1998 when a few determined
individuals decided that they had had enough of playing in
un-organized men's adult baseball leagues. In the May of 1998 the
MSL was launched with an astounding 20 teams in it's inaugural
season and to a huge success. Top notch fields, low team fees, and
outstanding league features, made the MSL an overwhelming success in
just its first year. All-Star Games in a stadium setting for all
three levels of play. Championship Series at all levels in a stadium
setting along with championship rings to the winners. Individual
awards for Home runs, Cy Young, Gold Glove, and MVP.
Word spread fast and
teams across the Chicagoland area wanted to be a part of the MSL in
1999. The MSL grew to 30 teams and added a third playing level.
This was unprecedented in the Chicagoland area at the time. No
other league offered the range of different playing levels that the
MSL now offered. 1999 also brought upon the use of the new
Schaumburg Flyers Stadium for the MSL All-Star Weekend, which turned
out to be a booming success.
suffered some growing pains in it's eighteen season and had to expand it's
Board of Directors to 9 to cover the increasing work load of running
the 2th largest Mens Adult Baseball League in the country. Our
affiliation with the national organization of
MSBL/MABL is stronger than
ever and the upcoming season looks to break new ground. Now entering
it's 20th season, the MSL has grown to 46+ teams with 3 divisions.
The MSL plays on
fields across the Northwest Suburbs, and we only choose top quality
fields to play on. These usually consist of college, minor league,
or community parks. All our fields have grass infields, dugouts,
home run fence's, and most have lights. All our games are 9 innings, (7 innings for the
2nd games in double headers), fully umpired, and fully insured.
There are 3 different levels of playing ability and they are as
League - Wood Bat/BBCOR - Teams and players wanting to
play wood bat. Experienced teams and players.
League - Wood/BBCOR - Experienced ex-high school and college players.
Some experience in the league and additional pitching depth.
League - Wood/BBCOR - For newly formed teams and in most cases,
high school experience or comparable baseball experience.
We also showcase a
fantastic All-Star Weekend for all 3 levels. Our league is always looking for
players and teams that are interested in being a part of the MSL.
