The independent baseball organization now called the Major
Intercounty Baseball League began playing in southwestern
Ontario in 1919.
Over the years, as many as fifteen teams have played in the
league at one time or another.
Just a few years ago, only six teams played, but in recent
years the league has enjoyed increased popularity - it has
expanded to now include nine teams, with Oshawa joining for
the 2002 season and Mississauga in 2009.
On those teams, youngsters on the way to the big leagues
play along side former major leaguers playing the game for
love, not money. Athletes in between other teams in other
countries - sometimes playing other sports - play Intercounty
ball for the same reason.
