Baseball & Softball Leagues for Mountainside Youth since 1954

Recreation League

The purpose of our Spring Recreation program is to give young girls & boys an opportunity to learn to play softball & baseball in a fun and local environment.

Travel League

Our Travel League teams provide opportunities for players to compete at a higher level than our Recreation Leagues offer. Players possess the desire to more actively hone their skills with like-minded peers.


MSBL participates in, and occasionally hosts, softball & baseball tournaments, giving our teams a chance to compete with teams near and far.


MSBL will alert the community to camps & clinics throughout the year.  These are opportunities for players to improve skills such as hitting, pitching, catching or fielding.
