To start with,we will have 4 teams , playing one game a week either on Tuesday or Thursday afternoon at 3-3:30 PM.
We will also have a Sunday league likely playing in the morning.
All players that are unprotected from the 61 division will be placed on a week day 65 Classic team.

If you are protected, did not play in CNMSBL in 2018, or cannot play because of work; and you desire to play on Sunday only.

In connection with the advent of this Division, the 62s Division will become the 61s for the 2019 Season and in 2020 will settle in as a 60s Div which is what it originally was. In conjunction with this change, the 54 Division will now be a 53 Division for the 2019 Season and will settle in as a 52 Div in 2020. The 24s, 34s & 44s will remain as is.
We are also looking into bring back the All Star games this season, more on that in January.
