2014 PSSBL Draft Complete!

The 2014 PSSBL Draft was held Saturday, March 29th, at Sport Restaurant & Bar in Seattle. Thanks to all the tryout players who are now members of the non-profit PSSBL. We hope you have a fun summer in the league with your new team. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped run the tryouts, to all the GM's and other team representatives, and to the Board members for their tireless efforts. Thanks also to Sport Restaurant for their hospitality during our draft day event.

While every effort was made to place tryout players on a PSSBL team or in a desired division, that was not always possible. Refunds will be forthcoming to the players who were not drafted, and partial refunds will be credited to players who paid for a longer season than the one for which they were actually drafted.

With 66 teams across 9 divisions and well over 1,000 players, the Puget Sound Senior Baseball League continues to be the premiere adult sports league - not only in the Puget Sound region, but one of the biggest and best in the U.S.

A's Come Up Aces in Vegas!

The Seattle Frickin A's are champs, winning the 2014 Las Vegas Kickoff Classic in dramatic fashion the weekend of March 8th-10th. The team, principally comprised of PSSBL veterans, competed in the 45+ wood bat tourney sponsored by MSBL National.

Sweeping to a 3-0 record during the preliminary round robin, the A's faced a tough opponent in the semi-final, the So Cal Matanzas. Down to their final out in the bottom of the 9th, Steve Towey hit a walk off 2-run double to seal a 10-9 victory for the A's.

The championship game was also a come-from-behind affair for the A's. Down 5-0 at one point to the Las Vegas Rattlers, the A's battled back to take the lead, but then had to hang on in a seesaw battle, claiming the title with a 13-12 decision in 10 innings.

This marks the second consecutive Vegas championship for a PSSBL-based team. Last year the PSSBL Ravens trophied in the 18+ Division.

The best-laid plans

A little over two years ago, I started conceiving the idea of a complete rewrite of the PSSBL platform. I had begun to feel a maintenance burden by working on new features with the current platform, and as such it felt like I should really considering using some more modern web frameworks.

Often go awry

The reality is however, complete code-rewrites are expensive, complex, and not always productive. There are invariably peculiarities to a legacy system (We'd had our current system for 7+ seasons) and those don't always translate forward. Often the rationale for why a feature was done a certain way is forgotten, or even worse, the business changed around you, but you didn't propagate those changes back into the code base.

Today, with a great deal of help from my friend & teammate, Tommy Montgomery, we've finally launched the new site. I have a hard time finding places where I think our members will prefer the old site to the new one. With that, lets dive into some of the details about what changed and why.

2014 Tryout Dates Set!

The Puget Sound Senior Baseball League (PSSBL), one of the largest amateur adult baseball leagues in the U.S., will conduct open tryouts for all baseball players, age 19 and over, during the course of three weekends in March. The 2014 tryouts start on Sunday, March 9th, at Edmonds Community College. Players age 35 & over should attend the 9am-Noon session (check in at 8:30am). Players age 19 & over should attend the Noon-3pm session (check in at 11:30am).

Other tryout dates (age groups and times are the same as listed above):

  • Sunday, March 16th - Bellevue College
  • Saturday, March 22nd - Edmonds Community College

Those who turn 19 any time during the 2014 calendar year - even as late as December 31, 2014 - are eligible to join the league this season.  There is no fee to try out for the PSSBL. Players may attend one, two, or all three tryout dates. Edmonds Community College is located at 20000 68th Avenue West in Lynnwood. Bellevue College is located at 3000 Landerholm Circle SE in Bellevue.

Directions

The non-profit PSSBL is comprised of over 1,000 players forming 66 teams in nine different divisions. The divisions are organized based on age and skill level, ranging from highly competitive to purely recreational. Formed in 1989, this year marks the PSSBL's 26th season of operation. See you at the tryouts!

Welcome to our new site!

We've been working hard for months on our new website, and it's ready for the 2014 season of the PSSBL.

There's been a lot of changes, but hopefully it will only make your time on the PSSBL website better.

If you do have any problems, please let us know.
