Wet Field Alters Opening Day Schedule
Opening Day is coming on Sunday!
Unfortunately, the rain earlier this week has forced a change to the schedule. The city of SLO has determined that Sinsheimer Stadium is too wet to play on this weekend.
Consequently, the games originally scheduled to be played in SLO have been moved to Porter Field in AG. Those three games will still have the same times as the previous schedule.
The game between the Legends and Hogs, originally scheduled for AG has been postponed to a later date.
Hopefully, this will be the only change that mother nature makes to the 2023 schedule.
See you on Sunday, April 2 at Porter Field!
Angels win the Championship in 2022
The 2022 season was good for the Angels. Though they had a few close matchups, they escaped the regular season without a loss. Their 14-0-1 record earned them a first round bye in the playoffs.
They defeated the Hogs in a sweep in round two to set up a rematch of the 2021 18+ Championship against the Blacksox.
After losing their first game of the season in the first game of the championship series, Pat Haugen pitched a complete game to secure the win in a 2-1 nail biter. He came back out to start game two, but the Blacksox ran out of gas. The Angels cruised to a victory in the deciding game to secure another League Championship.

About SLO MSBL
The SLO MSBL is the only amateur adult baseball league serving San Luis Obispo county. It is an affiliated league of the National Men’s Senior Baseball League and is open to all adults 18 years and older.
This is real baseball. The league plays on Sundays in San Luis Obispo, or occasionally in Atascadero, Arroyo Grande or Santa Maria. The games are 9 innings or 2:45 long. The fields are full sized fields with 90 ft base paths, 60’6″ pitching distance and fences ranging from 295′ to 380+.
The season typically runs from early April to early September with playoffs following the regular season. Last year, SLO MSBL had 7 teams with players ranging in age from 18 to 72. Don’t think age will get in the way of your ability to play. The only thing stopping you is…you.
Before each season, the league and managers meet to discuss changes, if needed, for the upcoming season. Divisions and local rules are subject to change before the start of each season to make the league more competitive and fun for players.
Last year, the league ran with a single modified 30+ division. Teams could have unlimited players 30 and over and 5 player under 30. The only restriction for the younger players was that they could only pitch a combined 3 innings per team each game.
2023 will follow the same rules format as last year.
It’s possible, the league may break into two age divisions again at some time in the future. In the recent past, they had an 18+ and 35+ division. The divisional makeup is still to be determined for 2023. Player fees will be determined soon.
