Dugout & Field Appearance Issues

 

We are asking everyone who participates or watches any baseball games at Westwood Park to please pick up your trash and place it in one of the many trash cans we have available around the park.   Over the past couple weeks the amount of trash laying around the fields, walkways, and especially dugouts has grown exponentially.   Every team should not only pick up their baseball equipment inthe dugouts after games, but they are also expected to pick up bottles, trash, etc in the dugouts as well.

This is a growing and alarming issue that we all need to pitch in to help with.  MYBA usually only has 2-3 volunteers on site at any one time, and they expected to oversee multiple things at once, so please do your part to help keep our park and fields as clean as possible.

 

Thank you,

JujujjjjMYBA Executive Board

2022 Team Pictures

We sincerely apologize for the delay in pictures this year, trying to align our schedules witht the photography company, not to mention delays on uniforms, weather, etc has made it signficantly more difficult than most years.  Here is the Picture Schedule, if you cannot make your team's slot for some reason, that is ok, as Team Pictures are done as a composite (meaning one person at a time) instead of all at the same time.  

You will be able to order your pictures onsite, or online this year as well.

Reminder: No Pets Allowed at Westwood Park

 

This is just a friendly reminder that per the Morton Park District rules, AND Morton Youth Baseball Association Guidelines, that pets are not allowed at Westwood Park, especially on the baseball fields. 

We are beginning a very high field usage time with outdoor practices and games beginning, and a lot of work goes into keeping our fields in great shape.  We are coming off of a summer and fall where many of our fields endured an unforeseen disease, and a lot of extra work and expense went into saving them.

While we know it is a very inviting park to bring pets to Westwood Park, there were too many times when messes were left behind on and off the fiels, or turf was torn up on our fields.   There were also incidents during games with dogs barking and/or growling at players trying to play.   For these reasons we are asking everyone to please keep your pets away from the baseball fields this summer.  

If spectators do bring pets to the baseball fields, they will be asked to leave for all of the reasons listed above.

If you have any questions, you can direct them to the Morton Park District or to the MYBA Executive Board.

 

We appreciate your understanding,

MYBA Executive Board

More about the MYBA, its leagues and player fees . . . . 

The Morton Youth Baseball Association's objective is to provide a supervised baseball program that will be enjoyable, educational, and challenging for all the youth.  The 2021 season afforded us the opportunity to develop almost 600 players throughout the season’s 450+ baseball games and countless practices.   Teams in each league will compete in 10-15 games against other Morton teams (in-house games).  All in-house games will be played at Westwood Park.  The season will run from April through June.

Player Leagues are based on grade in school at the time of registration as follows:

Pinto League or “T-Ball” (Cost: $75)  Player's eligible for this league will be in Pre K or Kindergarten at the time of registration and be 4 years old on or before April 30th

Maverick League (Cost: $120)  Player's eligible for this league will be in 1st or 2nd grade at the time of registration.  Kindergarteners will be allowed to play in Maverick if they have played at least 1 year of Pinto.
