As we rapidly approach the 100th consecutive season providing a competitive
baseball experience for players from 6 to 90 years old, we would like
to thank all the wonderful volunteers. Without our member associations
and volunteers giving so much of their expertise, time and resources,
NABF would not exist. Thank you for making the NABF an exciting baseball
experience for all players.
Looking ahead to our next exciting baseball season, the NABF is poised
to build upon its rich history and tradition to grow, providing a competitive
baseball experience for players of all ages. We have developed new tournaments,
new locations, and retained old favorites, having volunteers committed
to providing exceptional service and a quality experience for our teams.
Good luck in the new season and the seasons to come.
Charles M. Blackburn, Jr.
