Baseball is Back!! 6/22 Update

With the recent news from governor Walz and the state of Minnesota baseball has been allowed to resume.  Things will look a little different, but there are several updates. 

1. We will start with our original schedule for inhouse practice (see 2020 In House schedule at the right) starting June 24th/June 25th.  Find your child's age/day (it may be different than the hitting pod schedule). Games will begin the week of July 6th. In-house schedules/teams will be posted by 6/29.

**This includes 8 year old and 9 year olds! 

*There will be no more hitting pods starting Wednesday--kids will report the scheduled MAYBA Practice time on the right under "2020 MAYBA Schedule"

2. Travelling practice will also begin June 24th/25th.  We will be holding a coaching meeting for all traveling coaches Tuesday June 23rd at 7:00 at Independence Park. The traveling practice schedule is also posted on the right. 

3. Every player in MAYBA will be required to have their own helmet (matte black in color is preferred).  We have spoken to Borch's and they are available at their store.  There are also "M" stickers for the front of their helmets at their front desk.

4. Dates: In house: will end the week August 3rd (Playoffs).  Games beginning the week of July 6th.  

Traveling: Ending August 8th or August 15th.  

*No practice July 1st or July 2nd (in house and traveling). 

5. Travelling Families: we are hoping to get your child's team into 3-4 total tournaments in July/August.  The MAYBA Board is working hard right now get into tournaments--they will be posted on the teams page of your traveling team.  

*If you are unable to make a tournament/practice that is fine, please communicate that will the traveling team coaches as soon as possible. 

6. Concessions: When games begin we will be working on a limited menu so please plan accordingly.  

We understand that things will change on very short notice. The reason we want to start implementing practice starting Wed/Thurs. is because of arm care.  We are very worried about kids starting games the week of July 6th and not having enough time to play catch and get their arms in shape for games. 

*Older families (14U on up will receive an email from Coach Pollock in the near future). 15U on up plan for Wed/Thurs morning practice at 7:30 at Indy.  14U ages plan for a Thursday night practice at Independence.  

If you have any questions feel free to reach out any of the board or directors. 

Your friends in Baseball,

MAYBA Board

April 21st Update

Dear MAYBA Families,

The MAYBA Board of Directors met on Sunday, April 19, and we are planning and preparing for our traveling and in-house baseball seasons. As we move forward, we are listening and taking guidance from the State of Minnesota and the governing bodies of baseball (MBT, MSF, Legion, & VFW) in the state on how to proceed with the season and the scheduling of activities. Here are a few updates that we discussed at our April 19 board meeting:

  • The MAYBA Board of Directors is committed to providing your son/s a baseball experience this summer. Our plan is to modify the schedules and activities to fit the guidelines and timelines we are provided to work under.
  • Coach Pollock will be sending out an email to all the MAYBA Travelling Families and traveling team coaches letting them know where we are at with traveling baseball.
  • MAYBA Registration is open. We would encourage everyone who is planning to play summer baseball to register. This will help us with knowing what kind of numbers we have at each age group as we look to order team uniforms and equipment.
  • Home Tournaments are on as scheduled, and we will make a decision if the tournament will be played as scheduled two weeks prior to the date of the tournament.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to plan for summer baseball during these uncertain times. We hope that you and your family are doing well and staying healthy.

Our next scheduled meeting will be May 11. Please continue to check the website for future updates.
