If you've followed the Spaceman through the years, you know he still plays because he loves baseball... That's it! And that is the essence of TNB+50.
TNB+50 is the only league in Western Massachusetts for older players who want to keep playing. You are good to go if you are over 45 years old; 50 to pitch. We use wood bats, 90-foot diamonds, and follow MLB rules with the exception of free substitution and everyone hits.
We started out as 3 teams but have since doubled in size to 6 teams. It's one game per week, either Wednesday or Thursday, at fields in Hampshire and Hampden counties. The league is open to men and women of all abilities, and the games are both friendly and competitive. We are good baseball, just a little slower from what you remember. The season this year is 12 weeks, followed by the playoffs.
We are now accepting applications for the 2023 season. The online portal is active and may be found by following this link: TNB2023, PLAY BALL!
The registration deadline is February 15th for returning players and March 1st for new players. Slots go quickly. Do. Not. Wait.
