MBA will place players on Fall workout teams grouped with others their age and/or players that utilize the same playing fields (i.e. there may be teams with both 13YO’s and 14YO’s as both levels compete on a full size field)

 

  • Two weekly practices

2020 Spring 10 Year Old Players and above (Spring 2021 11YO and older players ONLY) - - If a coach is interested in forming a full team to compete in either MBL or Gopher State, please contact Brandon at to discuss possible opportunities. Current Spring/Summer Community 9 players are not eligible for this option.

 

REGISTRATION CLOSES AT MIDNIGHT ON AUGUST 9th. LATE FEES WILL BE APPLIED STARTING AUGUST 7th. Do not wait to register until the last minute because registration will close earlier if we get to maximum capacity prior to that date. Based on previous years, we do expect that registration to fill prior to that date.

 

*** MBA does NOT allow players to "play-up". MBA does this to ensure the player will be playing with similar age kids, similar rules and similar field dimensions they will have in their upcoming baseball season! If you have questions about your players age level for Fall baseball, please reference the grid below.
