    The Gopher State Baseball League (GSBL) is entering its 15th season. The GSBL is a USSSA baseball league that offers division play from 9u to 17/19u.

    The MYAS baseball staff is proud of the GSBL and the growth it has gained as well as the popularity it has earned over the past fifteen years. As we embark on this crystal anniversary, we are just as excited to serve as the league administrator today as we did in the year 2000, our inaugural season. In 2013, 420 teams competed for the elusive Gopher State Baseball League Championship. 

    No time is better than now, to be a part of MYAS/Gopher State Baseball.

    Boasting over 390 teams in 2013, the Gopher State Fall League is the fastest growing fall baseball league in the state!

    Three different divisions of play are offered, (Major, Competitive and Recreational) for ball players of all abilities.  The GSFBL is a great way to help participants get acclimated to the rules and regs of next season.

    Minnesota USSSA/Gopher State Midsummer Classic will take place at multiple venues on the weekends in June 2014. These qualifying tournaments are an excellent way for teams (10-19U AAA & AA as well as 12A-14/15A) to advance on to a World Series/National Tournament and earn points through USSSA. The Gopher State Midsummer Classic has also been designated as a "Double Points" tournament towards the Gopher State Tournament of Champions in July.
