everything seriously and following the pro-
tocols,” Page said.
In 2021, with restrictions loosening and
more fans returning to the stadium, the
USPBL is bringing back their promotional
events to the ﬁ eld for every game.
“Our biggest thing is being able to
bring the entertainment back,” Page said.
“Families are our main demographic and
our goal is to bring a Disney-like atmo-
sphere into the stadium.”
While the two leagues will look incredi-
bly similar, one of the main diﬀ erences will
be that the Mavericks League will not be
paying their players — USPBL pays their
players on average between $600 and $800
per month. The Mavericks League will
instead be working with an agency to pro-
vide players jobs during the season — both
leagues provide host families for players.
Another diﬀ erence is that the Mavericks
League will be playing on Thursday-
Sundays while the USPBL plays a more
ﬂ exible schedule.
Even though the Mavericks League will
be operating with limited fans in the stands
to start the regular season due to COVID-
19 restrictions, Walker is looking forward to
seeing how this new product is embraced
by the Keizer-Salem community.
“I am over-the-moon excited for the
season. This has been a long time in the
making. We feel like we are on the brink
of something that has so much potential,”
The Mavericks League is still looking
for seasonal employees for the upcom-
ing season. Those interested in applying
should contact Sam Evans at 503-390-2225
