Interest growing for adult baseball

The LMBL has grown over the years, since its debut 26 years ago. Games are played at high-quality diamonds, including Dan Pulham Stadium and the historic Labatt Park, which is shown here.

The London Mens Baseball League has proven to be a unique and successful organization that continues to gain notoriety in London and the surrounding communities throughout southwestern Ontario.

After 26 consecutive seasons, this not-for-profit association has proven to be the most successful adult baseball league in the area – with 14 teams playing 17 regular season (and 3 playoff) games per year.

Beginning as a Sunday evening league when it debuted in 1992, the LMBL has morphed into an ‘anytime’ Sunday league to capitalize on quality diamond time in the London community, and to accommodate a growing playing schedule.

Since the LMBL isn’t a ‘slop-pitch’ league – but rather real recreational ‘baseball,’ park usage is focused on quality diamonds such as Labatt Park (where over 30 percent of league games are played) and Dan Pulham Stadium.  The league also supplies Baseball Ontario certified umpires and paid scorekeepers for each game, and utilizes the GameChanger scorekeeping platform to give its players and fans all the juicy stats that ballplayers love!

Registration for the 2019 season is well under way and closing soon. The league fills up quickly – generally being full by Feb 15 each year. Players range in age from 30-80+, so all are welcome!

The LMBL is a drafting league, as all new players register as individuals and are allocated to the existing 14 teams in the league through the drafting process in April. We do not accept team entries.

We are a recreational league, but playing experience is recommended. Players must be cognizant of their abilities, as baseball can be a dangerous game for those lacking the basic skills necessary. Our league ranges in age from 30-80.

Registration for 2019 is now open. Visit our website for more information, or to register.
