Since 1988, Houston Hardball League has been Houston's premier men's baseball organization committed to playing the highest quality of real baseball on a regular basis. Members are business professionals made up of former pro, college, high school players, coaches, and average everyday athletes.
Games are played by MLB National League rules with a few modifications. Players wear professional style uniforms and exhibit a special commitment to their sport, communities and families at the highest ethical standards.

We offer five (5) divisions to enable team parity and scheduling choices within each division. Each division plays two seasons per year (Spring and Fall). Weeknight age divisions of 30+ and 40+ are designed for working professionals who want to free up their weekends. Our Open Division is most competitive with many former College and Pro players with Sunday games. For our mastered veterans, we have a 55+ Division that plays once weekly on Sunday afternoons.
New for 2021, we've added the 35+ Wood Bat Division that plays on Sunday afternoons allowing players to return to the game after having had many years off, and still works around most family obligations.
Houston Hardball League is sanctioned by Men's Senior Baseball League. National Membership provides opportunities for HHL members to travel and play in tournaments abroad including at MLB Spring Training Complexes in Arizona and Florida against teams from all over the country.
Leading up to these are numerous regional tournaments held throughout the country including in Houston and other large Texas metropolitan cities.
