I was given sad news recently. John Smith an umpire for Metro Umpires passed away. I'm sure not all players and fans may have known John by name but everyone knew his love of MABL. He always led the fans in "Take me out to the ballgame" late in games. John always requested MABL games. He told me it was because he loved the MABL age group and the brand of ball that is played. We all send our condolences to his family.
John you will be missed by all MABL Coaches, players and families.
The Metro Area Baseball League (MABL) is a high school age league throughout the Omaha metropolitan area. The league offers competitive Varsity and Jr. Varsity divisions. MABL is an excellent and affordable option for players not on their high school rosters.
Congratulations to all the teams that participated in the league this season. Hope everyone has a great and restful off season.
