About the John Gambs EMBL


  • The EMBL was founded in 2003 by the late John Gambs 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 (Mon-Fri), at the American Legion Field in Conyers. Games start at 7:30 PM.

Wood bats only in the 30+ division; BBCOR or wood in the 18+ division. No metal bats (BESR) allowed. This is not a "win-at-all-costs" league.
