Moving forward, the MYBA Board of Directors has made the decision that All MYBA travel tryouts will be closed to the public.  The decision was made to align our evaluation process with the goals of the organization which is to provide a supervised baseball program that will be enjoyable, educational, and challenging for our youth.

 

Parents can assist players with check-in and return to Westwood Park when the tryout is over or return to their vehicle in the parking lot for the duration of the evaluation. MYBA coaches, board members, and associates will be onsite to ensure a positive and safe tryout experience for the players. We believe this direction removes potential player distractions and stresses that result from open tryouts and aligns with other sports programs in the area.

 

Players are only required to attend one tryout but are encouraged to attend both.  Participants are not to wear any previous Morton Travel uniforms or hats. Players should bring their own glove, bat, and batting helmet (if you do not own a batting helmet, extras will be available for use upon request). 

 

Please arrive 15-20 minutes early to check-in and warmup.

 

Players need to be pre-registered for tryouts.  Click the link below to sign up if you haven’t done so already:

MYBA Fall Baseball Request

 

We wanted to provide a quick update on a potential MYBA Fall Baseball option, since we have received a lot of questions and interest.   Right now we are exploring options for  days, and age groups for a potential MYBA Fall Baseball league, that would be 6-7 weeks long.  

We can tell you that we will not be offering an option for 13 &14 year olds due to fields 5 & 6  being completely booked for Jr. High baseball season.  There will also not be a high school option, as those 2 fields will be undergoing routine maintenance this fall.  Leagues would most likely be comprised of 7-8 year olds, 9-10 year olds, and potentially even 11-12 year olds. depending on the level of interest.

If we did offer a fall league, it would be a more informal league option like we have done in the past, there would be no standings or end of season tournament, just 6-7 weeks of baseball, at a reduced registration rate.  

 

While we would like to be able to offer an option to those boys who are interested in playing fall baseball, we will need a lot of volunteer help to do so.  A lot of us on the Executive Board will have kids playing Jr High baseball, or helping coach football or even Jr. High baseball, so we will need as much help to run this as we can get.   We will need at least 1-2 volunteer parents to oversee each league, as well as head coaches and assistant coaches.   Please take the time to fill out the following survey, we will need answers no later than next Monday at 4:00PM, prior to our monthly board meeting so that we can vote on how best to proceed.   

Fall League Volunteer Survey:  https://forms.gle/WGh1XnBLweS1MZZa8

If you have any questions, please reach out to an MYBA board member for more information.


Thank you,

End of Season Survey & Fall Baseball Poll

 

Hello, we want to thank everyone who helped make the 2022 Morton Youth Baseball Association season such a huge success.  This year was our biggest year of enrollment ever, and it took almost literally a village to pull everything together.  We truly hope that all of the kids and families enjoyed the season, that the kids had fun playing baseball, and that they are excited to play again next year!

With that said, we would like to invite everyone to participate in our 2022 End of Season Survey, as part of this, we are exploring the possibility of offering fall baseball again this year.   This is obviously a time sensitive situation, so if you do have any interest in playing this fall, please fill out the survey as soon as you can.  

Here is the link: https://forms.gle/8QAc7s7VWM2LSwPSA 

 

We also want to thank all of the our board members, our volunteer coaches and assistant coaches, our concessions staff, our field crew, our sponsors, and all of the family members who made this all possible this summer!

Thank you for a great year, and we look forward to another great year next year!
