Our Mission:
  • Provide Mercer Island's most talented 8-12 year olds opportunities for higher level skill development and competition.
  • Create a well rounded baseball player. Develop physical, mental and emotional skills as well as teach fundamental game strategies.
  • Prepare our kids to play competitive baseball after age 12.
  • Provide the MI community (kids and families) with a unique on-island opportunity to support and celebrate Mercer Island baseball.

Mercer Island Select Baseball will begin scheduling games for the spring/summer 2012 season soon.  Please email our competition committe at info@mittbaseball.org to send your contact information. 

We typically have 8 teams each season:

9U Thunder/Lightning

10U Thunder/Lightning

11U Thunder/Lightning

12U  Thunder/Lightning

The Thunder teams typically play the highest level of competition while the Lightning teams play at a slightly lower skill level but are still very competitive.



Founded in 2006 as the Mercer Island Travel Team and renamed Mercer Island Select Baseball club, we are a select baseball progam for kids that live on Mercer Island, Washington aged 8-12.  All of our kids are required to play in the Mercer Island Little League program.  More...

The Mercer Island 11U Thunder select baseball team won the Triple Crown Washington Season opener tournament in Wenatchee in mid-April. The tournament featured 120 teams in the 9U to 14U levels from across Washington and the greater area.

The Thunder started off in pool play on Saturday, taking an extra-inning defeat in game one 7-6. In their second team, the team bounced back to beat Bothell 12-6. During three games on Sunday, Mercer Island pitchers gave up two hits, and the defense allowed only two runs, beating Washington Senators 6-1, Eastside Select 2-1 and the Senators against 3-0 in the title game.
