The Markham Men's Slo-Pitch League is a semi-competitive, slo-pitch league. We have 16 teams with 15 players each. We play 30 regular season games between mid-May to early-September. Included in league fees are a Charity Tournament (early-June) and a Play-off Tournament (mid-September) in which each team is guaranteed 3 games. Players range in age from 25-60+.
Our key objective is to ensure that each of the 16 teams is competitive. We attempt to do this by running a 'draft' at the start of each season. New players are 'rated' in various ways (self-rating and practice) and then individually drafted to a team depending on need. We do not accept team or group registrations.
Players must be at least 25 years of age during the calendar year and reside within the City of Markham, or be a principle owner of a business that pays business taxes to the City of Markham. PLEASE NOTE: players from outside of these boundaries can play should the league require additional players after March 1st.
FEES for new players for the 2016 season are $200. Cheques should be made out to MMSPL (Markham Men's Slo-Pitch League), post-dated to March 15th, 2016 and mailed to:
Markham Men's Slo-Pitch League

PO Box 77073
New players are recruited on the basis of date of payment and attendance at the new player recruitment practices; for example, if the league requires 20 players, the first 20 to pay and attend at least one recruitment practice will be guaranteed placement on a team.
If all roster spots are filled, you may join the waiting / call-up list, and are then eligible to play in games when a team requires extra players.
