Upcoming Player Draft & Scrimmage Sunday

Posted on December 1st, 2011 by Brian Teeter

The next season is just about 6 weeks away!  It will be here before we know it.  I hope you’re all keeping in baseball shape!

Player Draft – Veteran MABL Players

Very soon we will be having our first player draft.  The draft will be for teams to draft new players to the league, or existing players without a team spot.

If you are a veteran MABL player that does not have a team spot yet, you need to let me know right now so I can include you in the draft.  Shoot me an email back letting me know the following (league@mauiadultbaseball.com):

  • That you want to be included in the draft
  • What positions you are looking to play

    Player Draft – New MABL Players

    If you have friends, neighbors, coworkers, acquaintances, or other folks that you know want to join MABL for the next season, please let me know right away.  Please send me (league@mauiadultbaseball.com):

    • Name
    • Contact Info including email
    • What positions they play

      We want to have the first draft round for new and veteran players soon so that the draftees can join their team and begin working out together.  We will try to have at least one open practice / try out for draft members to come to meet and greet managers.

      Finally, this weekend we will be scrimmaging in Kihei.    Game time is at Sunday 12-3-2011 @ 10am, come early for warm up and team selections.  We had a great turn out in Lahaina last weekend, hopefully we can do the same this weekend.  If your new to MABL this is a great time to come out to play ball again and meet the guys!

      Mikey fundraising for Livestrong!

      Posted on November 17th, 2011 by Brian Teeter

      Mikey Marcotte passed this to me and I wanted to share. If you can, please consider donating to this good cause:

      Mikey Marcotte and the handlebar stache!

      I was hoping it would be possible to spread the good word to the rest of the league that I am fundraising for prostate cancer research … and growing a mustache. (Rai would be proud) Along with Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong campaign, gentlemen across the nation are growing out the mustache to raise awareness for prostate cancer and other men’s health initiatives. The campaign is called “Movember”, and I have attached the link to my website. Any donations are greatly appreciated and fully tax deductible. The fundraiser ends November 30th. Thanks guys! http://mobro.co/mikemarcotte

      Scrimmage Sunday at Kihei at 9:30am!

      Posted on November 12th, 2011 by Brian Teeter

      We were unable to get the Makawao field for this weekend’s scrimmage so we will be meeting again in Kihei at 9:30am on Sunday.

      Last week we were short players so people who came got 7 and 8 at bats a piece! Come on out this week and get in a lot of practice at the plate and in the field!

      All players are welcome to come join the scrimmage. If your a previous MABL player or a new player hoping to check out the league, come on down. All players should bring $5 to chip in for the umpire.

      See you all then!

      Free Agency, New Players, Player Moves and Drafts

      Posted on November 7th, 2011 by Brian Teeter

      Aloha All!

      We’ve adopted and published new rules for Free Agency, New Players joining the league, Player Moves and Drafting. I recommend all current and interested players take a look:

      Free Agency, New Players, Player Moves and Drafts

      These rules will help us maintain fairness and a sense of balance to the league going forward. They will also make some of our informal policies for players more formal. For future reference these rules are located in the menu to the right under the link for League Rules.

      Open Scrimmage Sunday @ Kihei at 9:30am

      Posted on November 2nd, 2011 by Brian Teeter

      We’re planning our first off season scrimmage this weekend at Kihei.  The game will start at 10am, be at the field at 9:30am to warm up for for team selection.  Please bring $5-10 to chip in for the umpire and baseballs for the game.

      If you are new to the MABL, or you have friends who are interested in joining MABL have them come out to the scrimmages.  This is a great way for new players to get back into baseball and to meet some of the other players and managers.

      We will be having regular scrimmages every Sunday from now until the next season starts early next year.  We will be posting a schedule online soon of locations and dates.  But for now its safe to assume we’ll have a scrimmage every Sunday for the rest of the year except Christmas day.  Locations will vary from week to week but we will try to have an even mix of west side, south side and upcountry dates.

      I know many of you are interested in the new rules for free agency, and the new rules for new players joining the league. I will be sending out via email and posting on the web site a detailed description of the changes we are making and in some cases, why we are making those changes.  Stay tuned, I should get it done in the next day or two, depending on other commitments.
