Missouri 8 Ball League was founded in 1986 by owner and founder Rusty Brandmeyer. He set out to create a league that gave back to the player as well as a format that was easy to understand and play. He was a former professional player and was tired of seeing the everyday pool player getting the short end of the stick. Thus Missouri 8 Ball was born. Fast forward to today, Missouri 8 Ball League has become one of the largest pool leagues in the St. Louis Metro area. With the best handicap system in pool combined with the biggest payouts of any local traveling league, Missouri 8 Ball is one of the greatest leagues ever invented.
