National Insurance Program
MSBL/MABL National will offer two alternate policies, a general liability policy without medical coverage for $100 per team and a liability/comprehensive medical policy for $250 per team. Each league can still have the 2 million-dollar liability policy with the $100 per team policy, now including participant legal liability. Each player will be covered medically during local league play, regional and national tournaments for up to $25,000, provided their league has purchased the liability and medical policy. The deductible for this coverage is $500. The medical policy can act as either primary or secondary coverage. There is no additional charge to add co-insureds or to add additional fields for coverage once the season starts.
By becoming an affiliated member of the Men’s Senior Baseball League or Men’s Adult Baseball League, your league can enter a Father/Son, 18+, 25+, 35+, 45+, 50+, 55+, 60+, 65+ or 70+ team in our annual World Series held in Arizona or the Fall Classic in Florida.
