  • A league with a competitive regular season as well as a very competitive post season which the ABL World Series is scheduled into November.
  • A league with an average regular schedule of 16 to 18 games plus post season games.
  • Post season playoffs consists of mainly 2 of 3 series however, 3 of 5 and 4 of 7 series games had been scheduled, depending on the situation.
  • A league which allows teams to have open rosters for the first half of the season followed by teams submitting their rosters for the second half. Only players on rosters in the 2nd half submitted are allow to legally play.

With the stiff competition during the entire season, players play to win, and they learn how to win as well as learning how to accept defeat. Only the winners of the WORLD SERIES GAMES receive the coveted ABL Championship Ring…
