Puget Sound Senior Baseball League tryouts Mar 8

Sunday, February 22, 2015

The Puget Sound Senior Baseball League (PSSBL), one of the largest amateur adult baseball leagues in the U.S., will have open tryouts for all baseball players, age 19 and over, during the course of three weekends in March. The non-profit PSSBL is comprised of over 1,000 players forming 67 teams in 9 different divisions.

The divisions are organized based on age and skill level, ranging from competitive to recreational. Formed in 1989, this year marks the PSSBL’s 27th season of operation. The League is affiliated with MSBL/MABL, the national organization which spearheaded the adult baseball movement in the 1980’s.

Former Major Leaguer Jeff Cirillo will play for the Sugar Kings in the Age 45 and Over competitive Smoky Division. There are a number of ex-minor leaguers and college players in the PSSBL, but there’s also plenty of room in the recreational divisions for players who haven’t picked up a baseball since Little League.

The 2015 tryouts will be held at Meridian Park in Shoreline on Sunday, March 8th, Bannerwood Park in Bellevue on Sunday, March 15th, and Bellevue College on Saturday, March 21st. There is no fee to try out for the PSSBL.

For more information including times, tryout players and all interested parties are encouraged to view the PSSBL website or call 425-644-1901.

The 3N2 Rangers, based in the PSSBL, are the current national World Series champions in the Age 50 and Over category. Also of interest, the all-women’s Seattle Diamonds baseball team plays in the recreational-level Teton Division vs. all-male teams, plus the PSSBL features 11 teams for players age 55 and over.

The PSSBL is well known for donating money, materials, and labor to youth and school baseball organizations around the Sound as well as other charities. This season they are assisting Thomas Jefferson High School, Bellevue College, Borderline Baseball, Make-A-Wish, and the Wounded Warriors Project.
