50 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!
In 1966, Montgomery Baseball League threw out its first pitch. From it's early days at township parks, through the growth and expansion of Montgomery and Rocky Hill, the development of our world class McKnight Baseball Complex, to today's program of almost 400 players from almost 300 families, we are proud of our rich history and deeply appreciate the families, volunteers and generous sponsors that have made MBL what it is today - one of the best youth baseball leagues in America.
So in 2016, as we celebrate our gold glove anniversary, look for special events to celebrate our history, our future, our community. You are all a part of it and we look forward to celebrating together.

Recommended Parent Viewing: "Changing the Game in Youth Sports" TED Talk
Please watch this 14 minute TED Talk video titled "Changing the Game: A Parent's Guide to Raising Happy, High-Performing Athletes & Giving Youth Sports Back to Our Kids"
Some key takeaways:
I hope you will take the time to watch the video and if you enjoy it, please share it. Share it with families that have children in youth sports. Share it with coaches, schools and organizations that are struggling to serve the needs and priorities of our kids in a youth sports world that sometimes does not allow our children to “Play” anymore. Share it with like minded people so that we all realize that we are the silent majority, and that youth sports can and will change. We have the power to change it the right way, and make it about our players first.
