The DC Metro Senior and Adult Baseball League is starting its 23rd season this spring and is the largest adult baseball league in the Washington DC Metro area. There are five different leagues that range from the following age groups 18+, 25+, 35+, 45+, and 55+. The 45+ and 55+ leagues are wood bat only, while the other leagues allow both metal and wood bats. This league began in 1989 for players 30 and over with only eight teams in Virginia and Maryland. The league has grown significantly to present day with almost 1200 players participating among the five leagues. Games are played at high school, city, and county fields throughout DC, Virginia, and Maryland.
