The Palm Beach County Sports Commission recently announced the return of Men’s Senior Baseball League (MSBL) Fall Classic. The Palm Beach County Sports Commission will partner with FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches and Roger Dean Stadium to host the MSBL Fall Classic for the next three years in the first half of November. The MSBL Fall Classic is one of the largest amateur baseball tournaments tailored for adults of all ages. This event will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2018.
“The Palm Beach County Sports Commission is privileged to partner with Men’s Senior Baseball League to host their Fall Classic,” Executive Director George Linley said. “The MSBL Fall Classic is one of the largest amateur baseball tournaments for adults that takes place annually in the United States. We are proud that MSBL selected Palm Beach County as their home for the next three years, which demonstrates the Palm Beaches’ position as Florida’s premier baseball destination.”
The FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, located in West Palm Beach, and Roger Dean Stadium, located in Jupiter, will come together to offer two marquee baseball stadiums and over 20 total diamonds to host the MSBL Fall Classic. They will accommodate 125 teams, consisting of 2,000 athletes from across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, and Peru.
In addition to home runs, this event will bring tremendous economic benefits. The influx of visitors is expected to generate nearly $4 million in economic impact while filling approximately 5,000 hotel room nights.
