Winter Update

Hopefully everyone enjoyed a great offseason! With some team’s winter workouts underway, and our younger players college seasons nearing (or for some already begun), another exciting season of FMBA summer baseball is on the horizon.

Interested in playing baseball this summer? Any new players to our league are encouraged to submit the “Prospective Players” form above. This is submitted to all team managers. Don’t sell yourself short!

As well, an early reminder to ALL returning players: please fill out the “Player Waiver” form so that you can be added to your team’s roster.

Stay tuned for winter updates soon.

Trevor Freeman

It’s a sad day in our community, as our friend Trevor Freeman has passed at the age of 46 after a long battle with cancer. Trevor, or more affectionately known as “Marv” was a member of our league for over 25 years as a player for the Dust Devils, Twins & Longhorns. But he was more than that to so many others: a friend, a coach, a Travelling Jagr, a son, a husband, and a father. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.

Rest in Peace Marv.

Your 2023 FMBA Champions!

Congratulations to the Diamondbacks on winning the 2023 FMBA championship, defeating the Dukes in three games. It was a hard fought series, and came down to the final inning of Game 3. Some awesome baseball was played by both teams, who really showed off the best of our City’s baseball community. The title was the Diamondbacks fourth in a row, which is an amazing accomplishment.

This concludes another successful FMBA season. Stay tuned for more info on the upcoming league winter meetings.

Have a fantastic off-season everyone! Stay safe.
