MLKB is the first men's professional Major League Kickball league ever. Started and owned by FACKA (Frederick Adult Coed Kickball League) President Jason Mecler, MLKB leads off with 8 teams across the country, ( The Maryland Monarchs, Philadelphia Funk, New York Snappers, Chicago Kestrels, Phoenix Gilas, Akron Marauders, Los Angeles Threshers, and the DC Metros) and new teams on the way. Games will take place on professional softball fields. The traditional red ball has been replaced with a custom made, black, size 5 soccer "style" ball with treading and 9 men fielding. With an iphone, ipad and itouch app already out, real teams and major sponsorship, Major League Kickball is looking to take over as the next big professional sport.
