National Baseball League in Action!
What is the National Baseball League?
The National Baseball League is an Independent Minor League Baseball league set to begin play in 2014. The inaugural 2014 NBL season will consist of four divisions, each with four teams, for a total of 16 NBL teams. The long-term vision of the NBL is to have a minimum of four teams in each of the 48 continental United States.
The NBL, which will feature many future stars from the USA, Latin America and the Pacific Rim, will play a 72 game season, 36 home and 36 away games, and will run from May thru August.

Why is the NBL Funtastic for Fans?
Minor league communities seem to share a special bond with their teams. As with all sports teams, there is a symbiotic relationship between the team and the city or town that it represents. In the case of major league professional sports, the relationship is often fueled by economic outcomes. On the minor league level, the relationship appears to go beyond mere money and prestige. Minor league teams occupy a special place in our hearts. We are more forgiving when they lose, and extremely proud of them when they win.
Additionally, the NBL is the perfect combination of entertainment and affordability. Research indicates that the average cost for a family of four to attend a NBL game will amount to about $55.00. The total was calculated using the prices of two adult tickets, two child tickets four hot dogs, two sodas, two beers, a program or scorecard and parking.
Compared to other entertainment options facing families today, an NBL game becomes not only a viable option, but a much welcomed one. When combined with a high quality of sports entertainment, this creates terrific value for fans of all descriptions.
Why is the NBL a solid investment?
While major-league baseball teams are well out of the price range of just about anybody that doesn’t control a segment of the media, minor-league baseball is drawing the eye, and coin, of everyone from celebrities to established venture capitalists. So how can you tell that minor-league clubs might be a better investment than a $150 million designated hitter? Follow the money. Institutional investors are now taking an interest in minor-league teams. They’re sensing that these teams make sound investments.
Investing in the NBL makes more sense than any other minor league in the USA. The NBL, by locating in cities rich with sports fans but lacking a team they can call their own, has positioned itself for great success. Add in a solid and proven Franchise Model plus distinct leadership that the League offers, investing in the NBL is both a solid investment, but one that will deliver years of good old fashioned family fun!
