Monday, January 16, 2017-Palm Springs, CA-Despite the rain we managed to get 126 games played out of the 127 scheduled! This is amazing considering we spent all day Friday rescheduling games and nothing got played. A rival adult league had a tournament scheduled at the same time and they decided to fold up tents. We wanted to make sure all games got played and we did that. The Monday Championship game schedule is posted below. We will be sure to let you know the final results on the website, Facebook and Twitter as soon as they are available.
MSBL umpire Dennis Haynes died Saturday night of an apparent heart attack. Dennis was in his mid-fifties. He's worked several of our tournaments and he was a really good guy. His wife told me that he really enjoyed officiating
in the MSBL. It's sad when real life stuff happens during our
tournaments. Please keep Dennis and his family in your prayers. We will miss him.
