“There are many positive results from participating in an E-Sports team and any kind of tournament if you sign up, keep an open mind, have plenty of patience and a willingness to grow,” said Anthony Han, an ESBL Team Captain for Paragon. “Compared to physical sports of all kinds, E-Sports is similar in terms of what is expected and needed to be a good team member.” 

From the initial sign-up to the actual competition, the E-Sports Bush League (ESBL) will mirror how professional tournaments are run, so participants will get an understanding of what is expected of them in a professional setting. 

Founded in 2016, E-Sports Bush League is the creation of two former, semi-pro gamers James Wagner and Mark Deola. Their company’s mission is to help competitive amateur and semi-pro players make the leap and get to the professional level. Their league acts as an incubator for talented gamers looking to make their way into the pros.
