There’s a new game in town! We are proud to present you with the release of an all-new league for men, the Blue Island Park District Men’s Baseball League (MBL).
The MBL is a whole new option for men’s baseball teams that includes not only everything you’ve come to love about South-side baseball, but with the full cooperation and resources of the Blue Island Park District. This includes the use of one of Chicagoland’s favorite baseball diamonds, Hart Park, online scheduling and team stat tracking, weekly team/player recognition, public book-keeping, customer support, and a league coordinator to provide answers to your toughest questions.
Now is the time to be a part of a new era of Men’s Baseball. Team registrations are now open to the public!
Fee includes baseballs and playoff trophies. A full schedule will be given to each team captain at the league meeting. Top 4 teams will make Playoffs. Full refunds will be processed for teams that paid in full and secured a sponsorship but paid themselves to secure a spot. Registration ends April 1 or when leagues fill, whichever comes first.
