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. Two age divisions- 18+ and 35+.

* Most of our games are played on week nights, at Salem HS or Newton HS. Games start at 7:30 PM.

* Most players have some previous baseball experience, such as Little League, rec ball, high school or college. A few have played professional ball.

* We welcome new teams! To enter your team or join an existing team, email johngambs@mindspring.com

* 10-14 teams play each year; we have room for up to 18; we're actively seeking more teams in 2015

* Most players have had previous experience in rec ball, high school, travel ball, college and a few played pro ball

* 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 35+ 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!
