The GBMSL is a co-operation of approx. 11 communities in the Georgian Bay area. Each community has a representative that sits on the GBMSL and the league executive is elected from those individuals.
Our season begins on the May long weekend and runs until Mid August to September depending on the teams involved. Our registrations generally begin in each community by March.
We are a mixed league starting at age 6 and running to age 19, playing competitive fastball amongst the other participating communities of the GBMSL
2014 Registration information is now online for Elmvale, Coldwater, Toanche, Vasey, Victoria Harbour & Wyevale- if you centre has no 2014 info on their web page it's because nothing has been forwarded to GBMSL yet, please contact your centre for information!

Rule Changes for 2014-
Tyke & Mite will not change with the exception of a rain/weather rule. Two innings in Tyke & 3 innings in Mite will constitute a game if weather forces the game to an end. If that point is not reached then a new game must be played.
Squirt to Midget will have a 7 run limit for the first 4 innings with the 5th inning and onward being open. Mercy rule of 15 runs after 5 (or 4 1/2 if home team is winning) will apply as well
Info- firstname.lastname@example.org and it will forwarded to the coach/manager of the team you are inquiring about!

Tournament Details, Umpire Assignments will be updated as the tournaments approach, generally at least one week in advance. Results will follow tournament based on information conveyed to the league through coaches & photos taken- Please send us your photos (640X480 res.) and we'll try and add them to the site. We especially are looking for photos of teams from each community. Email them to email@example.com
NOTE: IMPORTANT- In the past we have had several rain games in all divisions played on the Sunday- not being able to field a team because parents didn't plan on being available for the Sunday will not be considered a valid argument and it will result in a team forfeit from the tournament. Please make sure that you don't ignore the Sunday date as if cancellations due to weather occur then games will be played on the Sunday if necessary!
