The PMBL, now in its third season, is composed of 26 teams and over 200 players who compete in ten games per season.  Before each season begins, tryouts for each player are conducted and draft kits are prepared by the PMBL’s front office team over the course of five weeks in order to best inform team general managers about the league talent prior to the live draft.
