Major League Lacrosse
Major League Lacrosse is the only professional outdoor lacrosse league in the United States
and consists of eight teams: the Boston Cannons, the Charlotte Hounds, the Chesapeake Bayhawks, the Denver Outlaws, the Florida
Launch, the New York Lizards, the Ohio Machine, and the Rochester Rattlers. The Chesapeake Bayhawks have won three of the
last four MLL championships including back to back titles in 2012 and 2013. The league champions win the Steinfeld Cup, named
after one of the league's founders, Jake Steinfeld who played college lacrosse at Syracuse and rose to fame as the titular
host of the workout show Body by Jake. The Bayhawks lead the way with the most championships with five, two of them coming
when they were known as the Baltimore Bayhawks.
Three Boston Cannons have been named league MVP,
including Paul Rabil who won the award twice, in 2009 and again in 2011 when the Cannons won the Steinfeld Cup. In a 2007
trade with the Washington Bayhawks the Cannons acquired former Syracuse superstar Mikey Powell who then left professional
lacrosse after the 2008 season to pursue a musical career with his jam band Mikey Powell and the Villains Trust.
