The Midwest Ohio Baseball League is proud to be affiliated with the following organizations:


CABA (Continental Amateur Baseball Association)

The Continental Amateur Baseball Association launched the initial season in 1984 with the vision of starting a new more user-friendly youth baseball organization that would provide more teams the opportunity to participate at the national level. As the new kid on the block at that time, it was incumbent upon them to develop a program that would offer real alternatives, so the C.A.B.A. was the innovator in providing national level events for single age levels 9-18. In addition, the C.A.B.A. initiated round robin play leading to a double elimination championship bracket. These seem almost standard procedure in today’s youth baseball world, but in 1984, it was a revolution! Since that time, many thousands of teams from virtually every state, along with Puerto Rico, Panama, Guam, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Brazil and the Dominican Republic have participated in C.A.B.A. World Series events. In addition, hundreds of players that have since gone on to play at the professional level have played in C.A.B.A. World Series events, including C.A.B.A. Graduates of the Year such as Alex Rodriguez and Todd Helton. http://www.cababaseball.com


NABF (National Amateur Baseball Federation)

The National Amateur Baseball Federation (NABF) was established at an organizational meeting in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1914, and is the oldest continually operated national baseball organization in the country.  The NABF is based on the idea that teams should represent leagues in national competition. For each league of four or more teams, a team from each league is assigned to a regional tournament.  NABF hosts over 50 regional tournaments, plus eight national championship tournaments, throughout the year. http://www.nabf.com

 


SANDLOTT (Select Amateur National Development League of Travel Teams)

SANDLOTT Baseball's mission statement is to "create leagues and a program that challenges the talented player and assist that player to the next baseball level".  SANDLOTT Baseball has developed very special leagues for teams participating in 12u, 13u, 14u, 15u, 16u, 17u, 18u and 19 & over year old age divisions. Teams are selected each year to participate in a very select league from the some of the strongest programs in the country. Teams are selected to play in the league in pairs from each travel league.  Selecting teams in pairs creates the ability for each team and the team they're paired with, to host or travel to play two double headers in one weekend against two different opponents. Four games in one general location creates less travel and less wasted time. Each team plays 5 double headers (10 games). Two weekends covers 8 of the games and the team you're paired with in your immediate area can be played weekdays for the remaining double header.  http://www.sandlottbaseball.com/
