Fall Baseball Registration to be Announced -UPDATE No. 2-

image_name2
Registration information will be released on July 31. Registrations will be accepted beginning August 1 (postmark date). This year we will have only Monta Loma to play on. Previously, we were planning to field 2 Majors and 2 Minors AA teams because of practice field time limitations. We have changed from fielding 4 teams to 6 -- two in each division of Majors, Minors AAA, and Farm AA.  By holding combined team practices during the week by division, we will be able to field 6 teams.

Teams will also practice on Saturdays. All games are played on Sundays with teams from other leagues in District 44. Games are scheduled by the District Fallball Coordinator and the schedule is released about a week before the first district games. MVLL will have an Opening Day of MV vs MV games, currently planned for the Sunday after Labor Day.

As in previous years, there will be no in-person registration events for Fall Baseball. Registrations will only be accepted using the U.S. Mail. Acceptable forms of payment will be check, money order, or PayPal. No cash will be accepted since there are no in-person events. Postmark dates are used to determine the order in which registrations are received. Fall Baseball will sell-out quickly and we will have waitlists. Be sure to watch your email for the registration announcement on July 31. For more information, please email fallball@mvll.org.

We encourage prospective team managers and coaches to let Mike Reelfs know they are interested by July 31. Also, we are expanding umpiring opportunities for the Majors and Minors Fall Baseball Games. Send email to umpires@mvll.org if you desire to umpire. Experienced MVLL players who will be in the 2018 Juniors Division or Babe Ruth League are encouraged to apply.
