MBSL Information & Registration

The Miamisburg Baseball & Softball League was formed in 2017 to meet the need for a recreational baseball and softball organization within the Miamisburg community. Since its inception, the league has grown to be the home for over 600 players annually!

MBSL is very proud to be the youth recreation provider for young Miamisburg athletes! Recreational opportunities consist of a spring and fall league, and in addition, the league hosts various clinics and programs for players and community members throughout the year. We strive to provide options for all ages and skill levels.

Our Vision

The vision of the Miamisburg Baseball & Softball League is to provide quality baseball and softball opportunities with a focus on player development, team experience, and preservation of the recreation program and participation at the historic Rice Field.

  • MBSL will be a quality resource for individual player development for both skills and emotional wellbeing.
  • MBSL will provide the opportunity for the community to participate in the team atmosphere. Healthy team dynamics will be promoted to foster sportsmanship, comradery, and community within the MBSL League and Miamisburg Community at large.
  • Operational and financial planning will emphasize the sustainability and quality of the program and preservation of Rice Field for future generations of players.

Yes! Children may play in older age divisions. No child will be permitted to play in a lower age division. Please feel free to email MBSL@cityofmiamisburg.com to request a deviation in playing age.

Possibly. Some leagues do not receive enough registrations to play as a totally in-town league. Therefore, you may end up partnering with area leagues to get enough games in the season. The final decision on partnering is made at the close of registration and based on registration numbers.

The MBSL player draft is held that the end of registration. Volunteer coaches meet with other coaches of their age group and select players. Each coach is allowed 4 automatic picks. This includes their child. Automatic picks are capped at 4 to ensure a team cannot have an automatic infield. Coaches are provided names, ages, and the number of years a child has played. After the draft, staff double checks all rosters to make sure there were no errors. Those rosters are then published on TeamSnap. At that point you are connected with your coach and may message him or her back and forth via TeamSnap. This entire process takes a few workdays so it is likely you will not be contacted immediately. Thank you in advance for your patience.

MBSL does not allow direct requests for teams unless there is a reasonable barrier to your child playing. While we do accept reasonable requests, it is ultimately up to the coaches at the draft to select their teams. These requests cannot be guaranteed. If you absolutely want your child on a team with their friend, the only way to guarantee this is to enroll as a coach and select your team.

Excellent question! Teams vary from 7-9 players (Co-ed, T-Ball) to 10-18 players depending on the age group. Numbers are designed to give adequate playing time. High volumes of players occur on the 18u teams to account for the busy work and life schedules of teens.

After the close of registration, staff works diligently to prepare for the player draft. After the draft, staff asks coaches to refrain from contacting players until your TeamSnap page is set up. This helps us double check that no one was left out or misassigned. You should expect to hear from your coach by a week after the annual draft date.

Registration closes August 1st, 2022 and Games begin August 15th, 2022.
