friendships established, MSBL members enjoy discounts on products and services

easily recoup the cost of playing by leveraging the discounts each is afforded
as a league member. In addition to participant legal liability
insurance, local leagues can opt-in to our medical insurance. Should a
player suffer a significant injury, this coverage supplements the player's
existing medical coverage and can be used to reimburse the player's out of pocket
expenses for deductibles, co-pays or instances where his personal insurance has
limits (eg: physical therapy). With more employers transitioning to high
deductible health care plans (HDHCP) this coverage provides peace of mind for
players for very little cost. MSBL's offered plans cannot be beat for
price and coverage.
