 2019

It will be our 13th year and another trip back into baseball's past with each of our three divisions.

Registration is in the mail now to all returning players.  Teams will be drafted in mid-April and the season will start in mid-May and run to the end of July.  Teams will once again play an 18 - 20 game schedule in the Majors and Seniors, with the Sunset league playing 9 - 10 games.  Leagues will be wood bats only and wear retro uniforms.

In the Majors, our 15 & under divison, we will be heading into the 1980's with teams like...
The  California Angels (Wade), Chicago White Sox (Stokes/Sunsetters),
Kansas City Royals (Smith/Saiko)New York Mets (Haynes/Cooper),
Atlanta Braves (Hopper/Meiss), and Houston Astros (Walker).

In the 19 & under Senior league we are going back to the 1940's with...
the Chicago Cubs (Shelton/Stewart), Philadelphia Phillies (Twigg/Wilkerson),
Brooklyn Dodgers (Ginocchio/Sillavan)New York Yankees (Smith),
Washington Senators (Tarbutton/Looney), and St. Louis Browns (Eisenhour).

The Sunset league for players 18 & over will head into its second year with a special tribute
to the Federal league, the only recognized third Major league from back in 1914 - 1915.  We also 
anticipate possible expansion to a third team and may use...
The Baltimore Terrapins, Chicago Whales, and Pittsburgh Rebels.
(the Sunset league is only open to players who played as 18 or 19 year-olds  in our Summer Senior league at some point or current Senior 18 & 19 year-olds in our Seniors as double-duty)


Plus...

 more former MLB stars at Opening Ceremonies in May
     
family members of the greatest Hall of Famers as Honorary Commissioners to the league
