MSBL update 1/7/2021


Two things remain the same for 2021!

Cobra Kai Never Dies


The MSBL remains Illinois' Premier Youth Travel Baseball League!


With over 330 registered teams in 2021, the MSBL is excited to get our 2021 season started.

Below you will see which teams are participating in each group and level.

Divisions will be presented at our scheduling meeting in Late February/Early March. It is still our intention to hold all scheduling meetings in person. We will be making a final determination on dates and location/format (in person or other), later this month. As soon as we have those dates and information we will share with the league. 

As most of you already know, state restrictions continue to change and we want to make sure we are working off the best and most current information.

2021 MSBL Tournament Dates

New for 2021:

8U: July 9-11

9U July 1-3

10U July 7-11

11U June 23-27

12U July 7-11

13U June 23-27

14U June 23-27

Bat Rule concerns

USA bat rules will not be mandatory for MSBL games in 2021 and we will follow the same USSSA bat rules from 2020.

This is done to lessen the financial impact on families.

Please note that USSSA Baseball Tournaments and  Gameday USA have decided not to follow the new USA bat rules for 2020 as well.

If you have a new USA approved bat, you can use it in League play for MSBL.

For a bat to be legal it must be permanently marked “1.15 BPF”  “BBCOR”  "USA" or be a wood bat. There are NO barrel restrictions

The 13U  division bats must be stamped either 1.15 BPF, USSSA or USA Baseball and must be no lighter than a drop -8 length-to-weight ratio. Alternatively, "BBCOR" and/or wood bats may be used.  

The 14U division will be the only division that must use a -5 or -3 bat.
