Philadelphia Comets Amateur Baseball Team
The Philadelphia Comets (formerly the Philadelphia Black Sox) amateur baseball team is committed to providing the player who is age 18 & over, the opportunity to play real baseball at a competitive level on a regular basis in a professionally-run environment.
Aside from a few rule changes, the MSBL/MABL conforms to standard baseball rules. Teams wear major league style or replica uniforms, play on the best available fields, and play nine-inning games or two seven-inning games as part of a double header once a week, generally on Sundays. The league conducts championship playoffs and an all-star game, and league teams compete in local and national tournaments.
The Comets play in the Greater Philadelphia Men's Adult Baseball League, which is affiliated with the National Men's Senior Baseball League/Men's Adult Baseball League (MSBL/MABL), the fastest-growing adult baseball organization in the country. League players may be lawyers, local businessmen, or police officers during the week, but enjoy baseball as a serious hobby each weekend.
The Comets won the 2003 GPMABL Championship and captured the GPMABL pennant in 2001 and won the 2001 GPMABL Championship Series. During the past 13 seasons, the Comets have been an area Men's Adult Baseball League powerhouse compiling 141 wins in 264 regular season games for a .534 winning percentage.
