2018 LEAGUE REPORT In 2018, we will support four adult senior league divisions i.e., National Baseball League, Triple-A, Double-A, and Single-A. In both the Double-A and Single-A divisions, we will have sub divisions (e.g., Central or South). The season begins on 8th April: Season opener Southampton Mustangs v London Mets (NBL) and the Richmond Knights v London Mammoths (Triple-A) and it is all happening at Farnham Park. At the time of this report we are still waiting for some of our teams to confirm their availability. Thus we will be releasing the schedules for all of the leagues thereafter. In addition, our 2018 Rules Handbook.

To assist you for the upcoming season, we have arranged the following (free of charge):
