"Summer Smash" League Starts June 24th!

JUNE 13, 2018 -- HOBOKEN, NJ -- We have extended the registration deadline for ABL's "Summer Smash" Men's Softball League to June 16th - we are accepting Full Teams only for the season. Opening Day has been pushed to June 24th, and all games will be played in Hoboken for a 7-game season of slow-pitch softball. 

*If you are an Individual Player, you can post up your info on the Free Agent Board 

The season will play on Sunday and Monday nights, with games scheduled at JFK Stadium and/or Mama Johnson Field. 

Most teams are comprised of groups of friends or local bars and restaurants, and each roster needs at least 12 players (max 20). As of June 13th, there were 6 teams ready to take on the challenge of competing for the first Hoboken Men's Championship in over five years - the Raptors, Mills Tavern, Louise & Jerry's, Sparrows, The Guys and Thicc Bois - with a few more teams expected to join this week.

The last ABL men's team to win a Hoboken Division Championship were the Seton Hall Law team, FIBDIB, who defeated Louise & Jerry's in epic fashion, a 7-6 extra-inning thriller won by Chris Fontenelli's walk-off single.

Who will be the next team to take home the gold? 

An updated game schedule will be posted on the website by June 19th.
