Fall Baseball Registration Begins in August

Fall Baseball signup begins Frieday, August 10 and will close after one week or until all available player slots are filled (after which waitlists for Majors and Minors divisioins will be created.) We are limited to a single field this season for both practices and games. We can field 5 teams: 2 in Majors and 3 in Minors. We use the 2018 league age chart to determine the player's baseball age (the same age as was used for 2018 Spring baseball). Players 9-11 are eligible to sign up for the majors division. Players 8-10 are eligible to sign up for the minor division.

MVLL does not have a Fall Baseball program for T-Ball, Rookie, and Farm Divisions. Players 12 years old and older can participate in Mountain View Babe Ruth League (mvbr.org) and their Fall Ball program.

Registration information will be distributed on Wednesday, August 8. If you are presently on the MVLL emailing list you will receive the email announcement on Wednesday evening. The Fall Ball Web Page will also be updated on Wednesday with registration instructions and downloadable form.

Registration with payment is only accepted by postal mail. There are no in-person registration events. Registrations are not done online. Registration forms will be made available 2 days before signup begins. Envelopes bearing postmarks earlier than August 10 will be returned.

Fall Baseball is a very popular activity and will sell-out quickly. Last year, all slots were filled in 5 days. To receive Fall Baseball and other MVLL announcements, email info@mvll.org to be added to our mailing list if you are currently not receiving our newsletters.
