9yo Cal Ripken Tournament All Star Team

Minors Families,

As we enter the summer months of baseball we will be holding tryouts for players interested in joining the 9U tournament team.

Please Note: This team will be representing GMBL at Districts, States and Regionals.  This is NOT the team which travels to participate in various tournaments.

Tryouts will be held on Wednesday, May 23rd at 6:00.  Tryouts will be held at the GMBL complex on field 1.  Please contact William Armstrong with your child’s name and a parent contact.

As this is a team with a very specific set of games we ask that you pay close attention to the following dates.  While we are not guaranteed a spot in each, all players considered will need to confirm their availability for the duration of each competition.

Districts: start June 28, 2018; Stafford, VA

States: start July 5, 2018; Rockville, VA

Regionals: start July 18, 2018; Clemens, NC

Players must attend tryouts to be considered for the team.

If you cannot attend the designated tryout session or have questions, please contact William Armstrong.  We look forward to seeing some of our awesome GMBL players on the field!

2018 GMBL Tournaments

2018 GMBL Tournament Dates Announced

GMBL prides itself in hosting tournaments that bring in competitive teams from all across the DMV.  This year our tournament lineup includes our April Fools Tournament which in 2017 hosted 50+ teams, or highly competetive and sought after Memorial Day Tournament, a Dog Days Tournament that we have in recent years moved to Labor Day Weekend to accommodate more teams, and our end on season Halloween Havoc Tournament which transforms our fields into a festive fall complex where 65+ teams play to win it all.  

With 7 fields of play at our main complex and off site fields of play just minutes away as well, we strive to provide not only competitive baseball, but also easy to use apps to keep track of play, outside vendors and our fully operational snack bar as well.

Out of everything, our tournaments are almost infamous for playing through anything.  Our volunteers are the best, and many times have worked under the light before the sun comes up to ensure cancellations due to weather don't happen unless absolutely necessary.  We know everyone just wants to play ball, and we do everything we can during inclement weather to be sure that happens, while keeping all players safety in mind.

 

We would love to see your team in 2018!  Register For April Fools and Memorial Day Tournaments TODAY!

CPR / AED Certification for Coaches

Dear GMBL League Coaches,

GMBL has been offered an amazing opportunity to share with you reduced cost CPR/AED training through Florian CPR, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide low-cost CPR certification to Manassas area volunteers.  The organization was founded this July when our own GMBL Senior Babe Ruth League Member, Steven Smith, was saved by teammate, Paul Dow, after a freak accident during baseball practice as the team prepared for their Southeast Regional appearance.  Their story made Local, State, National and International news.   If you have not heard about the miracle, you can find the story link below as published by Babe Ruth Headquarters and local Inside NOVA:

Babe Ruth HQs Article

GMBL strongly encourages all league members to be CPR/AED certified as volunteers.  Do you want to Learn CPR?  Now is your chance! Florian CPR wants to help you. They will certify you in the life saving skills of CPR and the proper use of the AED for just $21.

Go to www.savewithcpr.org to learn more about them, sign up for a class or donate
