  • USABL is an all-inclusive league: We set divisions based on skill and location, create each individual team's schedule, assign and pay umpires weekly, distribute baseballs, provide insurance for all teams, remain on-call during game times and provide real-time standings updates. You just show up and play!
  • Most importantly, we get you the right schedule based on location AND ability.
  • Independent umpires are assigned by USABL, ensuring unbiased game calls and alleviating that responsibility from you.

USABL Rating System

Below is the USABL rating system we use for our teams:

  • Level 1: Reserved for the weakest divisions and would be equivalent to a "C" level rec team. 
  • Level 2: Weaker “B” level team or a stronger “C” level team should be rated a 2. One pitcher that consistently throws strikes should bring your team to a level 2 or 3.
  • Level 3: Average “B” level team with 1-2 consistent pitchers. No “A” level teams should be a 3 rating.
  • Level 4: “A” level team with 2-3+ good pitchers and strong offense. You should have an All-Star caliber team.
  • Level 5:  Strong “A” level team and can challenge any team with confidence.

*The rating system is not perfect. It is a guide for us to use when assessing your team's division placement along with team history, location and past performance (if available).
