The Major League Softball Association (MLSA) will feature menís professional softball as it has never been played before. MLSA softball will emphasize speed, defense and athleticism and when it is combined with outstanding offensive performances, our fans will be entertained with constant action and excitement. This combination will add a different dimension to the game of menís slow-pitch softball not associated with the game today. The MLSA will combine the skill of baseball with the continuous excitement of of slow-pitch softball, creating a sport to be enjoyed by fans of all ages.

The MLSAís PRIMARY OBJECTIVE - to have menís slow-pitch softball recognized as a legitimate professional sport and the MLSA as a well respected, first class sports organization.

Our ULTIMATE GOAL is to nurture and develop the game of menís professional slow-pitch softball into a full-time professional sport within 3 years.

This goal will be accomplished with planned, controlled growth and exposure. The MLSA will take full advantage of the marketing potential for professional sports; more specifically, the game of menís slow-pitch softball. The strength of the MLSA lies in its ability to bring together all the principals associated with the game of slow-pitch softball. These include team owners, players, product manufacturers and company sponsors who will work collectively toward a common goal - the success of the MLSA and the growth of menís slow-pitch softball as a true professional sport. The MLSA has assembled a team of successful sports, entertainment and business executives who will insure that this sport does indeed get to the next level.

The MLSA will begin its INAUGURAL SEASON in the Spring of 2008. The MLSA will consist of thirty teams. There will be three Conferences with ten teams each, divided into two five-team Divisions. The Atlantic Conference will have ten teams; five teams in the Northern Division and five teams in the Southern Division. The Central Conference will have ten teams; five teams in the Northern Division and five teams in the Southern Division. The Pacific Conference will have ten teams; five teams in the Northern Division and five teams in the Southern Division.

Team owners will come from current and former NFL Players, Major League Baseball Players, and NBA Players. Targeted candidates also include show business personalities, current and former sports executives, successful businessmen, entrepreneurs and quite possibly current minor league baseball team owners. They already have a venue and now have the opportunity to use their stadiums even more. The Players and Owners in the MLSA will exhibit pride, professionalism, commitment and dedication; the same basic values that are indicative of the work ethic of all those involved in the growth and development of the MLSA. It is these values that serve as the cornerstone upon which the MLSA was founded. In order for the MLSA to be successful, its teams and players must take an active role in their community. It is also of paramount importance for the players to be easily accessible to the fans.
