2017 45+ Meeting All Star Game, Regular Season & Playoffs

45+ Managers voted 7-3 Via email 2/14/17

The SJMSBL does not give preferential attention to any team(s) based on their ability to play. A more talented team has no more say than a less talented team. As a result, the SJMSBL along with the 45+ Managers have decided to construct 2 divisions. We hope that the two Divisions will lead to better competition

Below approved by all 45+ Managers Via email-.



·        All-Star Game will be scheduled for a Saturday in June or July @ Frawley Stadium, Home of the Wilmington BlueRocks. Stadium address: 801 Shipyard Drive, Wilmington, DE 19801

   7 Inning Game

 At Ground Rules managers can even teams out. To give players more playing time we'd want the same amount of players on each Team.

Pick 3-4 players from each team.

45+ Managers elected to potentially waiver new under-age players who are to turn 43 and 44 in 2017. (These waivered players cannot Pitch or Catch). All waivered players need to be approved by League & 45+ Managers. In 2017 all waivered players will be listed on our website.

New Rules voted by 45+ Managers

Each team will be allowed two courtesy runners per game, and they don't have to be identified at the exchange of line-ups before the beginning of the game.  When the manager decides to use a courtesy runner, that person will be dedicated as the first courtesy runner of the game.  That runner does not have to be run for on each following at-bat, he can have the option of receiving the courtesy runner or running for himself.  That would also apply to the second player that receives a courtesy runner in the game.  The runner that is used as the courtesy runner is the last batted out, unless it is a pitcher or catcher or the other courtesy runner.


With respect to pitchers and catchers, they can receive a courtesy runner at any time during the game, not only when there are two outs as a speed up rule.  Their use of the courtesy runner does not count towards the two that are allowed per team.  The pitcher or catcher can refuse to take a courtesy runner during the game and doing so will not prevent them from using a courtesy runner at another point in the game.


For the Regular Season, the National & American division Managers elected to play each team in their division 3X's 12 games Games + 3 games out of Division.. For a total of 15 games in 13 weeks.  2 scheduled Doubleheaders
