Marquette, Michigan – The Superiorland Baseball League is not as well known in the local sports community as other local sports institutions. Some people are completely unaware of the league. So, Zachary Sorelle came on the 8th Day Radio show to help our listeners learn more about the league.
Superiorland Baseball League is an adult amateur baseball league with 6 teams across Marquette and Dickinson counties. They play on Monday evenings in Gwinn, Negaunee, and Channing, except the Monday following the 4th of July weekend.
They have approximately 100 guys playing baseball, with almost all having high school baseball experience, with many even having college experience. Their league was formed three years ago due to the Wishigan Baseball League ceasing operations. Their goal is to keep U.P. adult baseball alive by providing a quality league with low cost, low travel, and low time commitment.
Their opening night of games is this evening (6/3), with games in Gwinn and Negaunee at 6:30pm, and Channing at 7pm.
At the conclusion of their season, the Superiorland Baseball League champion faces off against the league champs of the Keweenaw based Twighlight League for the title of U.P. Champion.
They are looking to spread the word about their league in the Marquette area.
