Senior baseball sign-ups are starting
Ninth season of SVMABL hardball
The ninth season of the Sun Valley Men’s
Adult Baseball League (SVMABL) is about to get underway. The league is one of
the few "all wood bat" leagues in the country.
Sponsored by Blaine County Title, the
league consists of players ages 18-61. Everyone is welcome, but there’s a
limit of the first 60 paid players since there are only four teams.
The 10-week season starts Friday, June
11 and continues through the "Wood River World Series," Aug. 20-21. Games are
played Friday and Monday evenings, and selected Sunday afternoons.
From June 11-July 19, six games per team
are played on the upper field at Ketchum’s Atkinson Park. From July 23-Aug.
21, six more games per team are played at Founders Field, Hailey—after the
American Legion/Babe Ruth season ends on the big diamond.
Once again, a draft of all players from
scratch will be conducted to form the four teams. Cost is $185 per player. You
must be paid in full to be placed in the draft. All player and sponsor fees
are due by May 26. The draft is May 27.
Returning players, bring a check and
last year’s jersey to Curtis Bacca (726-7595) at Sun Valley Brokers, 680 Sun
Valley Rd. in Ketchum.
