Welcome to the home page of the
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
Some 2018 Registrations are now available on the community pages (yellow box above)- Currently Coldwater, Lafontaine, Minesing, Victoria Harbour & Wyevale are updated
If you are looking to schedule diamonds the season start will be on Monday,
May 14th for Tyke & Bantam
Face guards on Helmets are required in SQUIRT, MITE & TYKE for 2018, this is 2 years later so Squirt is now on the list for 2018. In 2020 Peewee will also be added to the required list of divisions. It is strongly reccommeded by the league at all levels!
Pitching rule change for 2018- Softball Ontario has
adopted a one year trial which will likely be adopted so the GBMSL has
decided to introduce change as well for the upcoming season. This
affects Bantam & Midget teams only. Details will be given to
centers at Spring GBMSL meeting but in summary rule allows just the
pivot foot on the plate and removes need to drag (replant is still
Special Thanks to Centretown Sports on their kind sponsorship donation to our program this season!
Thanks go out to Chappy's Engraving on their donation of trophys/plaques in support of the all All Star Weekend!
League Liasons- Tyke-Keith Chapman, Mite & Squirt-Ed Moriarty, Peewee, Bantam & Midget- Carl Luoma - any issues/rule interpretations should be directed to these folks first.
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!

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
