The league's initial C.E.O. was Michael Cummings and was since been succeeded by Sean Smock. The league officially ceased operations and disbanded in 2013 without even taking to the field.
This league was promoted to support the team members and their organizations within the league, provide an opportunity that ball players would be looked at by scouts and other leagues, all the while providing friendly family entertainment.

In May of 2013, league founder and C.E.O. Michael Cummings abruptly resigned. He was succeeded by league commissioner Sean Smock.  The league officially ceased operations in 2013 when concerns about the league began to evolve.
