Welcome to the home page of the
"Celebrating 46 years of the GBMSL in 2019"
The GBMSL is a co-operation of approx. 11 communities in the Georgian Bay area. Each community has a representative that sits on the GBMSL and the league executive is elected from those individuals.
Our season begins on the May long weekend and runs until Mid August to September depending on the teams involved. Our registrations generally begin in each community by March.
We are a mixed league starting at age 6 and running to age 20, playing competitive fastball amongst the other participating communities of the GBMSL
OUR FACEBOOK PAGE IS WHERE MOST CURRENT INFO IS FOUND! This site takes a little longer to update.
We hope that all of our baseball families are staying safe during these unprecedented times.
It is with great disappointment that we have to announce that due to the extension of emergency measures and the cancellation of insurance coverage for the league and teams that we will not be in a position to run a season in 2020.
We realize that this will be a great disappointment to many that were looking forward to the season. We share in your disappointment and trust that this decision was not made lightly and weighed greatly on every community contact.
We encourage you to contact your community directly to understand their plans for any refunds for registrations already received. Please exercise patience and understanding as we all navigate this situation.
The league will continue to monitor the situation during the summer and may look at running some kind of limited program as we deem appropriate.
Also, for those players that are in the Midget age group and playing their final season of minor ball we will be taking this under consideration for possibly extending age groups for the 2021 season.
Stay safe and we hope to see you on the diamond soon!
GBMSL Executive & Community Contacts
Tournament Details, Umpire Assignments will be updated as the tournaments approach, generally at least one week in advance. Results will follow tournament based on information conveyed to the league through coaches & photos taken
NOTE: IMPORTANT- In the past we have had several rain games in all divisions played on the Sunday- not being able to field a team because parents didn't plan on being available for the Sunday will not be considered a valid argument and it will result in a team forfeit from the tournament. Please make sure that you don't ignore the Sunday date, if cancellations due to weather occur, then games will be played on the Sunday if necessary!

THE PLAYOFFS- 2019, won't be updated to this year until season results are in and formats confirmed!
Rain- if you cancel due to rain the playoff pages tell you to expect to play the next night, we know that isn't always possible due to diamond conflicts, players playing a division up, etc. The rule is as follows- You must have the game scheduled at least 2 days before the next game is to happen. If you cannot agree to play earlier then you MUST choose that date! If it rains on the mandated night then you WILL play the next night as the next game/round starts the evening after that! Mandated night listed below, earlier is always fine and encouraged. If a series goes to game 3 the same rule applies.
Squirt- Mandated night is the following Monday
Peewee- Mandated night is the following Tuesday
Bantam- Mandated night is that Saturday
Midget- Mandated night is that Sunday
May 4th, 2019 in Lafontaine- Junior Umpire clinic is planned. All Junior umpires are required to attend this event to card for the 2019 season.
2020 details will be posted once known! Stay tuned!!
