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. We are part of the national Men's Senior Baseball League. In addition, we are a non-profit organization and we try our best to benefit the schools and communities that support us.
  • Most of our games are played on week nights (Mon-Thu), at the American Legion Field in Conyers. Games start at 7:30 PM.
  • We welcome new teams! Teams must have a total of 15 players in order to be complete. To enter your team or join an existing team as a free agent, reach out to our commissioner (Willie Rogers) at (770) 256-7105.

  • How fast are the pitchers? In the 30+ division, most throw in the 70's or slower; in the 18+ in the 80's. Bats? Only wood bats are allowed. This is not a "win-at-all-costs" league. The joy of playing baseball and the comraderie is what we are all about!

    LEAGUE & RAINOUT NUMBER: (770) 256-7105
