Hoboken’s i9 Sports acquired by American Ballplayers League

Over the past eight years, i9 Sports has positioned itself as Northern New Jersey’s premier adult recreational sports league. As a niche provider of fun and competitive leagues, i9 membership has grown to over 1,500 players, former athletes, and fitness enthusiasts alike.

Teams actively participate in four sports offered during the spring, summer and fall seasons.

In order to meet and enhance player experience and league growth, i9 Sports has entered the 2013 year with a rebranding and acquisition by the American Ballplayers League (ABL).

“The new ABL league represents an investment in technology infrastructure and player focus that our athletes deserve,” states ABL commissioner Jason Ross.

The ABL just launched a state-of-the-art website (www.joinABL.com) that takes the league to a whole new level – sort of an “ESPN for amateur athletes.” Full teams and individual players can sign up to play in a variety of sports.

Below are some of the features for players and teams participating in the new ABL:

  • Box scores, game stats and standings
  • Premier venues throughout Hudson, Bergen and Passaic counties
  • Professional league management and high-level customer service
  • League officials at each game
  • Free Agent Board
  • News feed and Social Media
  • Game videos and photos
  • Smartphone App for in-depth Team Management
  • Championships & Tournaments
  • End-of-Year Awards Party

In 2013, they are organizing leagues in four sports: Flag Football, Softball, Basketball and Soccer.
