June 17, 2020 - Baseball Update
Hi Men,

How is everybody doing? I wonder if you`re as anxious to get back out there as I am..We continue to be in a holding pattern because of our fields being closed. Orange County just backed off their commitment to reopen in August because of the uptick in hospitalizations. However, I may be able to offer a soft opportunity to play or at least get back out there soon. ..At this point, we have Father`s Day next week, followed shortly thereafter by the July 4 holidays, and the searing heat of a Florida summer. If I can get something lined up to start in early August, on some different fields, would you guys be interested? On the assumption there is not some cataclysmic event for the better or worse, would you be interested in starting play again in August and going through Thanksgiving?

Email me directly at, or let your manager know.

Thanks, I miss you guys.

PS Here`s my Dan Newlin CYA note, I see some are out and about, playing and practicing with other teams, other leagues, etc.I think that`s great, but please understand that our Liability Insurance only covers you in our league`s play and on our fields. Ridiculous that we have to say that, but the massive liability (and medical) exposure that comes with playing right now is on you and the guys that are out there alone. The Central Florida Men`s Senior Baseball League, and myself personally and the Board of Directors hereby disavows any legal association and exposure with any activities baseball- related by our membership until such time as the league as a whole consents and accedes to said.

Let me know about your thoughts on the fall schedule. The sooner we can book it, the sooner we can all have something to look forward to!

March 09, 2020 - Expos Win!
The Expos won their second game of the season in walk off fashion. After being dominated for most of the game by strong Braves pitching, the Expos trailed 6-0 going into the bottom of the 7th inning. They began their rally with hits by Brandon Wilds, Kevin Salcedo and Cam Alba before Joe Machovina walked up to the plate with the bases loaded. He smashed a double to the left-center gap, just missing a grand slam, plating 3 and bringing the score to 6-5. In the top of the 8th, the Braves scored another run to pad their lead going into the bottom of the 8th and final inning. The Expos didn`t panic and put the first three runners on base before Cam Alba drove a game winning double down the line to walk off the win. Greg Kalogridis got the win with two solid innings in relief of Graham "never say die" Frederick. This was his first time pitching in the leagues, but we hope not his last. Expos move to 2-2 on the season and hope to win with out a walk off one of these days.

December 18, 2019 - RockOn are the champs...again!
Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, the Rock On were down to their last strike, down 5-4, two outs, nobody on in the bottom of the 9th to the Rangers for the fall championship. The baseball Gods, divine providence, Murphy`s Law or just bad karma jumped up and bit Chris Pio`s bunch. Line drive to left, diving attempt came up empty, ball rolled to the wall, batter circled the bases for the tie.

You could almost predict what was to come next, Rangers come up scoreless in the top of the 10th, in the bottom half a hit batter, stolen base, ground ball to advance the runner to third, then a base knock to win it. Congratulations to Paul Belknap and the gang, this one wasn`t easy, but these guys find a way to win, and they remain atop the league for another season.

December 10, 2019 - Polk Sox are the 38 + Champs!
The Polk County Sox take the 2019 Fall championship game by a 15 to 6 score over the Orlando Blazers. The Sox took an early lead and held on as the Blazers battled back to make it close before tacking on 4 runs in the 6th and 3 in the 8th to pull away. Eric Haynes started and went 8 innings, striking out 3 and working out of a couple jams while allowing only 2 earned runs then handing the ball over to Pete Gonzalez who struck out one to close it out. The Sox had 20 hits on the day, led by Haynes and Randy Phillips who had 3 hits. Sean Williams, Joey Neira, Jason Diaz, Polo Segarra, Ric Moots, Hector Gonzalez all had two hits and Lorne Wheatcraft and Jared Brown chipped in with a key hit as well.

This is the first championship for the Polk Sox, not easy with the amount of travel and logistics it takes to put together a team each week. But Ric Moots and the boys did it, and for this season anyway, someone other than the pHillies can be called the best of us! Congratulations men.

June 04, 2019 - All Star Sunday a Sweltering Success!
The Interleague All Star Games with the Orlando Baseball Association was a great time had by everybody, and the expanded Skills Competition featured some great performances and raised some good money for both Edgewater High School baseball and the Save the Children Foundation.

The OBA won both games, but both were competitive on a scorcher of a June Sunday. The older guys division MVP was Felix Soto Toro of the Cubs. The younger division was a close game that ended 11-10, with Alex Rodriguez of the Brewers winning the MVP honors, as well as managing the team. Chris Stahl of the Expos cracked a three run home run for the MSBL.

The skills competition winners included Kevin Laguna, the 2019 HR Derby king, triumphing over 20 competitors.In a remarkable double win, Kevin also was Central Florida Baseball`s fastest man, rounding the bases in just over 15 seconds. Anthony Kazmerczyk was the bunting champion, which was ironic as I don`t ever recall him being called upon to bunt in his 5 plus years in the league. Jeff Shebovsky was the outfield throwing accuracy champion, putting a throw into a small bucket from 250 feet.

Tim Nowe singled in Howard Williams with the winning run in the bottom of the 12th inning to win a marathon championship game for Dan Jarvis and the vaunted Phillies Sunday. Carlos Ruperto and the Blazers gave the champs everything they wanted, but time after time Phillie hurler supreme Scott Budds wriggled off the hook. Rick Sanders and Tony Caruso were equally tough for the Blazers, but the clutch hits did the final damage on this day. Congratulations to the Phillies, this is really a remarkable run of success.

Paul Belknap and his Rock On crew barreled through the continuation of the semi-final game, defeating the Brunch Sunday morning, then followed that immediately with a resounding victory over the upstart Cubs, who had upset the regular season champion Rangers in the other semi-final. When the RO are clicking on all cylinders, they`re a tough bunch to beat, and this game was no exception.

phillies rock on

May 16, 2019 - Championship Sunday!!

The Blazers will attempt to dethrone the mighty Phillies on Sunday at 9 AM at Edgewater High School. The Phillies have dominated the division for so many seasons I`ve lost track, but this is a great Blazers team, should be a great game!!

The winner earns the right to immediately face the Clermont Cubs, who were upset winners over the regular season winning Rangers in the other semi-final, in a game that follows immediately afterward. Estimated start time for that game is 11 AM.

Plenty of good seats available for each game!

We`re going to get going early this year, try and stay out of the summer heat a bit ...So new players, free agents and returning players, we`re going to have a signup and short workout next Sunday the 20th, and you should be on a team and playing ball that day! If we can get a few things together, we will be playing games the following Sunday the 27th!

Next Sunday, the 20th of January, we`ll throw it around a bit, take a few cuts and a short IF/OF. Not a tryout, just a workout, the main thing is to make sure we help teams replace and replenish players who have moved out of the area or hung it up. We`ll have it at Edgewater High School in College Park. If you Google Map it, come in through the back entrance, which is found by turning on Westmoreland from Maury. Come up a couple blocks, and you`ll see the field on your left. Pull in there and you can park next to the field. You might want to move a ways from the door, to avoid foul balls.

It`s a nice field, the coach is working hard on it, so we want to warm up and throw in the OF. No big worries, just a light workout, we have a spot for everyone..10:30 Am for registration, 11 for the workout, we should have you out of there 12:30ish, if you`re a football fan. $150 dues for the spring, which gets you membership,fields, umps, balls, awards, website, liability insurance (not medical!), playoffs, eligibility for tournaments and some great camaraderie with some like-minded folks in Orlando`s longest continuously operating men`s baseball league. Uniforms and hats and equipment may not be supplied by the teams, though some have team helmets, gear and a few have team uniforms. You can use a credit card on the PayPal button on the left of this note, or you can mail a check to CFL MSBL, PO Box 4025, Apopka, FL 32704. If you can`t pay that day, then just as soon as you can, we have a pretty simple rule, No Pay, No Play.

August 15, 2018 - Fall Draft and Registration
This Sunday, the 19th of August, at 10 AM at Edgewater High School is the date and time for the fall draft. All teams are looking for new players! Everybody is welcome, new players to the league and those returning but looking for a new start.

The best way to reach the field is to turn on N. Westmoreland off Maury, come down a couple of blocks, and turn left behind the field. We`ll have a light workout, get you picked out and on a team, and on your way by noon, if all goes well.

Remember, it`s a light workout, not a tryout, so the main thing is to get stretched out properly and refrain from straining anything. It`s not a skills assessment, it`s just so we can match guys to teams that need what they play.

The league costs $140 this fall, for 12 games plus playoffs, if eligible. We start the 26th of August and hope to wrap up the regular season before Thanksgiving. Balls, fields, umps, liability insurance, (not medical) are included, among other things. There may be a slight additional charge for uniform tops and/or hats.

You can bring a check, cash or Money Order, you can pay with a credit card on the league website using the PayPal Service, (button on the left), you can mail it to CFL MSBL, PO Box 4025, Apopka, FL 32704, but without paying, there is no playing, unfortunately.

Let me know if we can expect to see you out there, send a note to or just come on out. We look forward to having you in the league!

June 24, 2018 - Phillies Repeat, Cubs and Nationals New Championship!
The Phillies repeated (and repeated, and repeated, and....) The Cubs won their first championship, and the Nationals won their first. Game details to follow!Cubs

For the Cubs, Randy Davis goes the distance, striking out 6 in the 10-3 Victory. The Brunch bats were held to only 4 hits, Cubs Hitters included Redlin 3-3 with 3 singles, Vasquez 2-3, 2 singles and 2 RBI. Stone was 2-4 with 2 singles, Page, J 2-4 with 2 singles and 2 RBI. Mike Skyles and Jeremy Louderback saw their efforts in building a championship caliber team pay off, with their first crown. Heavy favorites RockOn were knocked out in the morning game by the upstart Brunch in a 3-2 classic. That left a tall order for the Brunch in the June heat, to have to win 2 games on the same day. They hung in for 5 innings, but wore down eventually, and the Cubs took advantage.

For the Nationals, Kutler Lane pitched a complete game gem, giving up no earned runs, and managers Patrick Smith and Bradlee Cox had their first crown in only their second season. The Mets gave them a game, but came up short of being the Cinderella at this year`s ball.

For the 38+ Phillies, a 6th championship in the last seven seasons seems like routine, but that accomplishment is anything but. Scott Budds went the distance for the Phils, holding the hard-hitting A`s off the score board until the last frame. Manager Dan Jarvis and the Phillies kept up the offensive pressure on every pitcher A`s manager Adam Bransfield threw out there, and the Fightin`s were able to coast to victory.

Congratulations to all of our champions, to all of our playoff contestants, and a hearty thank you to all players, our umpires, and especially our friends and families who allow us the time to be able to come out and play this wonderful, confounding children`s game. Have a great summer, details on the fall season will be released before you know it!

For the veterans, a couple of old rivals will face off for the championship this spring. The A`s pulled off a double steal to tie the game with the Yankees late, then executed a suicide squeeze to win it, to ice the comeback victory over the upstart Yankees, led by manager Eric Echevarria. After falling behind 3-0 and 4-1 early, the A`s battled back to win against a much-improved Yankees squad 6-4 at Seminole. Evan Loicono (3-3 with a run scored) and Russ Miller (2-3) paced the offense. Starter Joe Hamilla and reliever Tony Burnham combined with a solid defensive effort held the Yanks to one run over the final eight frames to capture the win.

The Phillies traveled to Lakeland to face the resurgent Polk Sox, and came home victorious and set for the final game. Warren Hanson went the distance giving up just 2 unearned runs and striking out 7. Scott Budds led the Phillie comeback with a bases clearing double with 3 on. The Sox side of the story went like this: Sox score 1 unearned run in the 1st and 2nd innings to take the lead early. Eric Haynes was in command early not allowing a runner past 2nd thru the first 5 innings, but in the 6th the Phillies score 3 unearned runs to take the lead. The Phillies score 3 more in the 8th (1 earned) and 1 more unearned in the 9th to cap a 7 to 2 victory.

For the Sox Haynes went 7 innings giving up 1 earned run with 4 K`s taking the tough luck loss. At the plate for the Sox Haynes led the way with 3 hits, Lorne Wheatcraft and Paul Segarra had 2 each and Randy Phillips, Ric Moots and Pete Gonzalez each had 1 hit.

I have still have a couple of teams looking for ballplayers! Send a note to and we`ll get you on a team and playing ball ASAP!

August 02, 2017 - Fall Baseball!!
We are getting ready to play some fall baseball! Hopefully the rains will slack off, and it will cool down a bit and we will be ready to go! Our fall registration and draft will take place at 10 AM on Sunday, August 13 at South Orange Youth Baseball Complex, 11,800 S. Orange Ave. in Orlando, 32824. Try and arrive at 9:30 to fill out a little paperwork and get warmed up. Hopefully we will get you a light workout, picked out on a team and on your way shortly after noon! (By light workout, I mean light, a few swings, a half-speed infield/OF, maybe the pitchers and catchers throwing it around a bit. No injuries is the key. Everybody will get a spot, we`re just concerned with making sure a team doesn`t end up with three 2nd basemen.)

We will play 12 games this fall, every Sunday between the 27th of August and Thanksgiving, except for Labor Day. We play all over town, and games usually start at 9 or 12:30 PM, with occasional late afternoon games. Membership, umpires certified in high school or better, decent balls, liability insurance, website, playoffs, awards, camaraderie and miscellaneous are all yours this fall for $140. You must pay to play in this league, and each player is responsible for his or her own dues. You can pay by check, cash or Money Order at the registration, payable to CFL MSBL, or you can use a credit card on the PayPal button to your left. (Please add an extra $5 for PayPal if you do that.)

Each Friday a list is sent out to the managers on who is eligible that Sunday.(paid). No player may participate who is not. That takes the onus off the manager, it works out well, and protects the rights and playing time of the player who is protected against ringers and outsiders who might take their At Bats, etc. Additionally, we tolerate zero malcontents, guys who like to argue with umps, fight, etc. We all have to go to work on Monday.

This is our 50th season! We are the longest serving amateur baseball league for men in the state! (Not even sure that`s true, but it sounds cool..) There are cheaper options, but we keep smaller rosters so that there is more playing time. We have open substitutions on defense and elongated batting orders so that everyone feels a part of the game. You paid, you should play! If that sounds good to you, we would love to have you in the league! Also note that uniforms and medical insurance are NOT included. Some teams have small charges for the uniform, or a team set, and medical insurance for team adult sports is prohibitively expensive, so you have to be on your own there.

SO please let me know if you plan on attending, and what division you would be interested in playing. WE have 18+, 25+ and 38+. Also, if you have any other questions I failed to answer here, let me know!

June 27, 2017 - Mets, Twins and Phillies are the Champions!
The Mets won the best of 3 series vs the defending champion Ojays to capture the 18+ crown.

The Twins upset the defending champion Rangers to claim their first championship in the 25+ division. Kevin Kellerberg and Joel Burgos were co- mvps. Kevin notched 7 innings of shut down pitching allowing 1 run, with 8 Ks. Joel Burgos came up 3-4 with 3 RBI and 2 runs scored. Jay Zerquera rescued us in the 6th inning after our starting Catcher had some dehydration dizziness. 39 year old Jay Z strapped on the the gear to catch the final innings in the sweltering heat. Team Captain Wendell Perez and Mgr Ricky Klotter were proud of the guys on this playoff run.

Finally, the Phillies dynasty continued their dominant reign in the 38+ division with a 2-1 victory over the Blazers. The Phillies won the Spring 2017 Championship behind the right arm of Scott Budds who fanned 14 Blazers in a tight 2-1 win. Budds pitched the complete game and finished the year 9-0 with a 1.25 ERA and 101 strikeouts. Matt Butler had a huge RBI single in the 2nd and finished the day 2-3. Barrett Gugliotta also added a pair of hits finishing 2-4. Budds had the game winning RBI walk in the 4th to give the Phillies the lead for good. He topped it all off striking out the side in the 9th to finish it. Awesome year Phillies! Big props to both our Pitchers and defense. When you finish the year with a team ERA of 2.05 you will be in position to win a lot of games. Details and team pics to follow.

June 19, 2017 - Finals Set!
Blazers Win! Tony Caruso pitched a solid 6 innings to hold the Yankee offense in check in a 16-1 victory. The Blazer bats started slowly but scored their first run in the bottom of the third on a Carlos Ruperto single that scored Jay Claudio. The Blazers then put up 4 in the 4th; 8 in the 5th; and closed it out with 3 in the 6th behind a triple by Bill "Moose" Musacchio and a long double by Ishy Cruz. Jeff Bouley banged out 2 long doubles in an awesome display of "Warning Track Power", as reported by the Blazer correspondant.

The Blazers will face the Phillies at 9 AM next Sunday at Edgewater High School for the 38+ championship.

Rangers to defend their championship against the TwinsOrlando Rangers defeated Cubs 9-0 on Sunday as three pitchers combined to throw a shutout. Joshua Frank struck out Javier Santiago to finish off the game. Orlando Rangers grabbed an early lead on a double by Julio Lara, and a groundout by Eric Roukey in the first inning, then a single by Joshua Frank in the second inning. A bright spot for the Cubs was a single by Tristan Page in the second inning. Ernesto Sosa earned the win, pitching seven innings, allowing zero runs, three hits, striking out three, and walking one. Two relievers helped Orlando Rangers close out the victory. Scott Mikrut threw one inning. The Rangers had 11 hits in the game. Will Schingl and Frank each collected multiple hits to lead Orlando Rangers back to a title defense yet again for what has to be now described as a dynasty team in Central Florida amateur baseball.

The upstart Twins will attempt to deny the coronation at 12:30 Sunday June 25th at Edgewater High School after upsetting the Angels. Wendell Perez, who must have been very well-coached in high school, had 2 hits and 1 RBI and 2 Runs Scored and got a bases loaded save in the 9th. Joel Burgos had a base clearing double with 2 RBI. And despite the 100 degree weather 39 year old Jay Zerquera caught all nine behind the plate and his blocking stopped the Angels run game. Twins 9-4 win over the Angels.

January 10, 2017 - Spring Baseball 2017
We are ready to get going, hope you are ready to play some baseball! We will play 16 games this spring, from the 2nd week in February through the beginning of June. Playoffs are concluded before the end of June, except in the event of an extended bad weather season. All of our games are on Sundays at various fields around metropolitan Orlando. We have a number of teams looking for players, and we are usually able to accommodate all levels of skill. We keep our rosters small, which ensures a lot of playing time. We also offer extended batting lineups and open defensive substitutions, which allows us to include most everyone, without compromising the competitive nature of the games.

The registration and draft will be spread out over two dates. Those interested and qualified to play age 18 and over will need to report to South Orange Youth Baseball Complex at 9 AM next Sunday the 15th. (Directions from your location available on the tab on the left.) For those interested in the age 25+ and 38+ divisions, the date will be the following Sunday, the 22nd. You will register, then stretch and warm up for a light workout at 10 AM. We should be able to get you worked out and on a team before noon, for those interested in being home in time for the football game. By "light workout", we mean a quick IF/OF, pitchers and catchers throwing a bit, and a few cuts on the field. There are cages if you want extra swings on your own. We are also aware that you may not have been playing for a while, so nobody is looking for 100%, just dial it back, take it easy, the primary purpose is to make sure we have relatively equal distribution of talent, positions, speed, etc. Nothing to pull a muscle about.

League dues are $180 this spring. This covers fields, 2 umpires per game (high school certified or better), baseballs, liability insurance (not medical), playoffs, booking agent, website, awards, and more, not to mention the camaraderie of playing this great game with a bunch of guys with similar passion for baseball in the longest tenured league in Central Florida. You can pay by check or money order sent to Central Fla. Men`s Senior Baseball League (CFL MSBL), PO Box 4025, Apopka, FL 32704, or if you`re still strapped from the holidays, you can use a credit card with the PayPal button on the left. Please include an extra $7. 50 if you choose that option. We even have the option of spreading out payments over time without interest, through PayPal. (not the league! :) You don`t have to pay to work out, (it would be nice and really helpful!), but you will greatly enhance your draft status if you do, as everybody is looking for paid players. The league rule is "no pay, no play", and rosters will close by the end of the month.

SO, pre-register by letting me know to expect you for the draft. ( We look forward to having you in the league, and please don`t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
