Birmingham Metro Baseball League: Managers

NoImageName
Wednesday, March 1



The deadline for entering teams in the '06 Summer Season has lapsed, however the BMBL will continue to look for potential managers for the '07 season.  If you have a passion for competitive baseball and want to organize a team to compete in the BMBL, please contact Kris or Jarred at bmbleague@yahoo.com.   See below for more information of how managers formed teams in 2006.

In order to form teams, we need POTENTIAL MANAGERS to fill out a roster listing out all players they have claimed to their respective team.  Although the roster does not have to reach the minimum of 14 players at this time, please fill this out as completely as possible and email to bmbleague@yahoo.com. This is important because we are trying to guage player requirements for our draft/player allocation. (roster available below).


During the months of February and March, the BMBL will host a registration campaign and will release an online form to create the player pool. On this form, there will be a place to select the team you choose to play for if you have one.The draft/player allocation day tentatively will be in early April. On this day, all managers will meet with the BMBL officials and a tryout will take place.  Teams that need additional players will have the opportunity to "draft" players.


Without volunteers for managers that want to field competitive teams, the BMBL will not be a success and we thank you in advance for your commitment to the league.
