Travel Heavy Updates

 

Congratulations to the following who were named as Travel Heavy coaches for the 2023 season:

 

9U: Tony O'Brian

10U: Luke Parnham

11U: Dave Hoffman

12U: Brayton Boss

13U: Jason Vallar

14U: TBD

 

Travel evaluations for the 9U-13U age groups will take place in the coming weeks.  We hope to have the evaluation dates finalized and posted within the next few days.  Please be on the lookout for further communication that will be sent out with those dates.  If there is enough interest, we plan to field a 14U team for the season.  Due to low numbers, we are unsure at this point if we will be able to field two 14U travel teams.  Anyone interested in coaching the 14U team (heavy/light or a hybrid of both) should contact our travel director, Brayton Boss, at by 8/13.

 

Pre-registration for Travel Heavy evaluations is currently open for the 2023 season.  All players will need to be pre-registered prior to tryouts.  You can register using the following link:

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!
