~~~Attention Freedom League Baseball Fans~~~

The Freedom League is always on the move constantly improving the league as we  build towards the 2013 season with many exciting things yet to come.

After completing our successful 60 game inaugural 2012 season, the league is anxiously anticipating the upcoming 2013 season. We'll be expanding the schedules to 90 games and also adding two more teams, giving us a total of 6 teams. We will also be playing teams outside of the Freedom League, as well as exibition games in other cities.

The league generated many positive experiences for players, fans, and the communities in which the teams played. It also created job opportunities and brought in revenues for the stadiums, cites, local venders, and the important business sponsors of the Freedom League. Cities also received important funds through tax revenues directly through the generosity of our fans, the player's families, and surrounding businesses.

The Freedom Pro Baseball League in the inaugural season provided quality baseball that was equivalent to HIGH "A" minor league baseball. Fans had the opportunity to see great games at affordable prices in some of the finest baseball stadiums in the country.

We're also announcing the opening of new league offices in Scottsdale, AZ. In addition to the new offices, the league has expanded its front office staff as well. The addition of the new personnel will ensure the success of the league and its continued growth.

The 2013 season promises to be exciting and full of fun for the entire family and our ever increasing fan base. Stay tuned as the league will be releasing it's 2013 schedule soon!

Thank you for being a Freedom Pro Baseball League fan!
