  • Player evaluations are required with a Draft to form equitable teams.

Equipment / Uniform

  • Each player receives a jersey and hat. Baseball pants and rubber/molded plastic cleats are recommended.
  • Players should have their own baseball glove.
  • Batting helmets are supplied. Personal helmets may be used. All bats must have a USABat stamp or sticker.

Season

  • Program runs approximately April 1st thru early to mid-June.
  • Player evaluations/Draft in mid-March

2018 MLBA Major Commissioners: TBD

The MLBA relies on volunteer parents for almost all of the functions and operations of the leagues and we are very grateful for the time and effort that so many people contribute.  Even if you cannot make all of the games or practices we encourage you to offer whatever assistance you can to the team managers.
