MYBA Fall Baseball Leagues


We wanted to send out a clarification about the fall baseball league that MYBA will be offering this year for ages 9U - 12U. 


Fall baseball is not just for travel teams, however since the 7 week league is open to outside teams, we are auto-enrolling the 9U - 12U travel heavy teams to ensure that there is at least 1 MYBA based teams in each league, as is required for us to host any kind of event.  Since JFL & Fall/travel soccer are also going on in the fall, we lose a large percentage of our volunteer coaches to those organizations, as well as other commitments.  For fall baseball, we are asking teams to register, instead of individuals, so parents can put together their own teams of children from the same grade for fall.  Unfortunately during the fall, we just do not have the manpower to handle individual registration, coach assignments and team placement in the fall like we do for the spring.  
For the fall of 2021, this would equate to boys starting the school year in grades 3rd through 6th.  Due to field availabilty, we are unable at this time, fall baseball to ages below 3rd grade.  And due to Jr High Baseball, we are unable to provide leagues to 7th & 8th graders.   With 3 Jr High teams (MJHS 7th grade, MJHS 8th grade, & Blessed Sacrament/Bethel Lutheran Union)  using 2 fields for games and practices throughout the week every week from Aug 2 until late September, we are We encourage those ages groups to explore other opportunities in the Peoria area.  

These leagues will be open to travel and rec teams, coaches will be responsible for organizing and submitting their own teams.   The cost will be $720 per team, so $60 per player for a 7 week season.  Games will played on Wednesday or Friday evenings, teams will play 1 game per week.  Fall season will begin Wednesday, August 25, and end Wednesday, October 13.  

Morton-based teams WILL be given priority for sign up.  As mentioned abover, MYBA Travel Heavy teams will automaticaly be signed up upon completion Head Coach election and Player Tryouts in mid-August.   2020 Travel Lite coaches are encouraged to put together and enroll a team, these teams will have no bearing on the 2021 Travel Lite coach elections or player tryouts.  In-house coaches ARE encouraged to put together teams for fall baseball, if they are interested.  


Any teams interested in playing need to reach out to Josh Tarter (jrtarter@gmail.com) or Jason Vallar (jvallar9@gmail.com) by August 3.  Fees will be due no later than Monday, August 23. 


If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at any time.


Thank you,

MYBA Fall Baseball & End of Season Survey


Good evening everyone, 


We first want to thank everyone for a great season this year!  We cannot thank our volunteer coaches, staff, and workers enough for all that they do. We sincerely hope that everyone enjoyed the season this year!  

As of right now we are exploring the option of a fall baseball season this year.  We understand that several of our baseball players are also invovled with JFL and Youth Soccer, so our intent is not to infringe on either of those organizations at all, but instead to offer a baseball option for those kids who are interested in playing more baseball.  We will be looking at days and times that will not conflict with other commitments. 

Below is a link to our fall baseball/end of season survey.  We will leave this open until Aug 1, so please make sure to fill this out before then:




If you have any questions, as always feel free to reach out to any of us.


Thank you again,


MYBA Executive Board
