Important Update for House League parents registered for TBall & Junior/Senior Rookie Ball Evaluation Day

To ensure we have well-balanced teams and a competitive RB house league loop, we conduct a RB player evaluation every year. Our evaluation day for Senior & Junior Rookieball is Saturday, May 6th at Tom Chater. Senior RB will be held at 10am and Junior RB will be held at 1pm. Each evaluation is expected to take approximately 2 hours. Players are expected to bring baseball gloves, proper footwear, personal protection (jocks/jills) and proper athletic clothing. No shorts please. Bats are NOT required as they will be provided.

There is NO evaluation of Tball players.

After the results of the RB evaluation day are tabulated, I will look at parent requests and build out the team rosters. Coaches will then be provided their rosters and they will then reach out to their teams. This should all happen week of May 8th.

Opening Day

As we play on un-lit diamonds, we traditionally open our season for our younger players the week following the May long weekend. This year, opening day is Monday, May 29th. As registration is coming to an end, we can confirm diamond locations. Tball is played on Monday nights and will be played at Kings Mastings (1&2) and Dean Henderson. Rookie Ball Senior & Junior will be played Monday nights at Birchwood Park only. Team schedules will follow in May.

2017 Helmet Policy

A reminder to ALL parents that the MSBA does NOT provide team helmets to Tball & Rookieball teams. Starting last year, helmets are considered "personal" equipment due to concerns around hygiene & broader health issues. Almost all sporting goods stores sell youth helmets and we would encourage you to buy early to avoid disappointment.

2017 Trophy Policy

A reminder that while participation trophies are offered to all participants in Tball, participation trophies are NOT offered at Rookieball. Trophies are provided for the RB League Champion and Tournament Finalist only.

Rookieball/Tball Championship Weekend

The 2017 RB/TB Championship Weekend will be August 18th - 20th. Please protect this date in your calendars.

Please go to MSBA maps page for field locations.
