Welcome to the Long Island White Sox homepage. The Long Island White Sox Baseball Club is a member of the Long Island Men's Senior Baseball League (LI MSBL), Mountain Division, ages 28-38. The founder of the MSBL on Long Island and across the US also serves as our league president, Steve Sigler. The Men’s Senior Baseball League / Men’s Adult Baseball League is a national organization with 325 local affiliates, 3,200 teams and 45,000 members who play organized amateur baseball in local leagues, 25 regional tournaments and 6 national tournaments. National membership is projected to exceed 50,000 members very soon.

The Long Island White Sox play at a variety of ballfields in Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens, NY. Our home field is at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. Most scheduled games are on Sundays; there are between 3-5 Saturday and weeknight games during the season. 

Each and every player on this team understands that he is an integral part of the team; in talent, spirit and friendship. Every player also understands that he is not bigger than the team; that the team DOES come first. This was one concept that didn't have to be taught. Each White Sox player has brought that selfless attitude with them, which in my humble opinion, has been just as much a part of the reason, as everyone's on field talents, as to why this team has experienced success each season. Win or lose, none of us forgets that it is after all, just a game; albeit the greatest game ever! For more on the White Sox, check out our Team History.
LI White Sox Scorebook Homepage 2007 Season Update - The LI White Sox made it as far as the Mountain Division semi-finals in 2006, but fell to the eventual champions New York Royals in the 3rd and deciding game. A hard fought series ended on a low note for the Sox, but as usual, they brought class and gamemanship to the field.  Congratulations and a tip of the Sox caps to the NY Royals for winning their first league championship.

Long Island didn't have a great feeling about their roster going into the off-season and as it turned out, they were right. Kyle Spelman, one of the original Sox players and on whose right arm rode many Sox victories, leader in almost every White Sox career pitching statistic, finally decided to hang up the spikes. The Game 3 starter of the 2003 Finals who combined with Sal Tavernese for a no-hitter to clinch the championship, is done. Between a new family at home and a never fully recovered shoulder injury, The Spelminator had to leave the Sox family. Although Spelman may not be playing with the White Sox anymore, #26 will always be with us in spirit at every game.

Another devastating blow to the Sox pitching staff was caused by the retirement of left-hander Jimmy Stroub. Stroub's arm will be missed even more now that Kyle is gone. To make matters worse, the Sox also lost yet another pitcher in Jim Mckenna and outfielder Tommy Clark, both to back injuries. To continue their winning ways, the White Sox will need to have the core players step up and have big years, while hopefully picking up an arm or two before the roster freeze date. On the bright side, an original Sox player came back to the fold. Outfielder Al Loffredo is back with the big club; the Sox can certainly use his bat and legs at the top of the line-up. The White Sox also signed free agent outfielder Eric Rivera and hope to see him become an integral part of the club. Currently, Long Island is in negotiations with a left-handed pitcher. 3rd baseman/Player Agent Mike Riva is handling the negotiations, which hopefully will see a poitive outcome, as the Sox are in desperate need of additional pitching.

This will be our 7th season with the MSBL. The Mountain Division has seen some changes this season, as the Brewers and Royals have moved on. There are also more than a few new teams this year; it seems almost half the division teams are new additions.  We'll see how Long Island stacks up against the competition as the season progresses. GO SOX!
