M.S.B.L. Mission Statement
The mission of the New York City Middle School Baseball League (MSBL) is to provide student athletes with the skills, knowledge, and opportunities to grow and succeed as young baseball players. While winning is a result of well-played baseball, the MSBL focuses on providing student athletes with the necessary means to learn as much as possible about baseball in order to enjoy the game, and potentially compete at higher levels. With the regular season records having no impact on post-season tournament seedings, MSBL coaches are able to focus on giving each and every player ample opportunities for individual and, ultimately, team success. The MSBL has developed into a community of athletes, coaches, and fans committed to sportsmanship, a healthy lifestyle, academic success, and love of the game of baseball.
