About the EMBL
FACTS ABOUT THE EAST METRO BASEBALL LEAGUE (EMBL)
- The EMBL was founded in 2003 to provide adult baseball on the east side of Atlanta for adults. It's part of the national Men's Senior Baseball League. There are three regular season age divisions: 18+, 30+, and 45+ (45+ is part of the Atlanta AAMSBL).
Most of our games are played on week nights, at Salem HS or Newton HS. Games start at 7:30 PM.
We welcome new teams! To enter your team or join an existing team, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
New teams are forming in 2018. For info, email email@example.com or call (770) 896-7379
How fast are the pitchers? In the 35+division, most throw in the 70's or slower; in the 18+ in the 80's.
Bats? Wood bats only in the 30+ division; BBCOR or wood in the 18+ division. No metal bats allowed.
This is not a "win-at-all-costs" league. The joy of playing baseball and the comraderie is what it's all about!
