The rebirth of major professional box lacrosse in the United States came on March 13, 1986, with the formation of the Eagle Pro Box Lacrosse League. The league opened play for the 1987 season with two games on January 10, 1987: the Philadelphia Wings at the New Jersey Saints and the Baltimore Thunder at the Washington Wave. Darrell Russell was named Commissioner of the league.
The four teams contested a six-game regular season before a postseason which saw all four teams qualify for a single knockout tournament which ended with the Baltimore Thunder being crowned as the EPBLL's first champion in 1987. The league announced that a total of 124,536 fans attended Eagle Pro Box Lacrosse League games in its first season.
The league became known as the Major Indoor Lacrosse League (MILL) starting in the 1988 season, which lasted until 1998 when it became the National Lacrosse League (NLL).
