What is Roy Hobbs Baseball?
The Roy Hobbs Baseball is an amateur series for adults that services teams all across the United States, Canada, Caribbean, and even Europe! It was named after a fictional baseball character from the 1952 novel, “The Natural,” which was also made into a film in 1984. Representing more than 600 teams consisted of over 7,500 players, this unique series celebrates the spirit of sport and the love of the game. Since its founding in 1993, the Roy Hobbs Baseball World Series has expanded for the allowance of sportsmen and women over the age of 18 to play.
