Enhancement to the 2016 Rookie Season

MBA Board continuously looks to enhance the baseball experience for our programs.  With that said, we have approved a positive change to our Rookie League that will be implemented in the 2016 season.

 

We are building in some additional flexibility knowing there are different ranges of talent and experience of players in the Rookie League.  Player development is a priority in the league and a modified batting approach would allow us to advance skills of pitch ready players while instructing and developing players in earlier phases of development that would be using a batting tee.  When it’s the player's turn for their at bat they will be given an option to hit off the batting tee or to hit pitches thrown by their coach, which is at a limited distance from the batter.  This modified batting approach allows us to focus on player development at an individual level.  Coach pitches will be limited to ensure that the game keeps progressing at a steady pace.

 

If you have questions or comments please contact Chad Johnson (952-465-2956) or Dave Maurer (952-239-5001).

 

Thank You

MBA Board

2016 Registration Opening Date and League Structure

All MBA League Parents and Players:

 

With MBA registration opening on Monday, January 11, 2016, we want to make sure we communicate our plans for the 2016 season.  Over the past year, we have had many discussions on potential changes to our structure.  After in-depth discussion and reviewing the feedback from 2015 Survey, it became clear that we should continue on with the structure we had for the 2015 Season---our age 4-12 year old programs will remain with Little League.  Travel baseball will begin at age 13.  There may be some minor adjustments to individual rules within each league, but the overall structure will remain the same for the 2016 season.  We will be implementing the new Little League International age dates for the upcoming 2016 season.  This will not affect the majority of MBA families.  If your son/daughter is affected, you will receive a follow up email in the upcoming days with more information and an invitation to attend a Q&A session on Monday, December 21, 2015; 7pm the Minnetonka High School Forum.

Option #2

We are very excited to announce one of the new features to this year’s Academy, we will offer individual or group lessons (up to 4 players) that will concentrate on Pitching / Hitting and other aspects of baseball. These will be more concentrated instruction that will allow the instructor’s to work on specific aspects of the players game. These will begin in the last part of November and continue into February.

Ages: 9-18

What: Run by MHS Baseball Coaches - you can choose any of these Coaches (Pete Swenson, Alex Twenge, Chris Fasnacht and Ian Walkowski) Emphasis on Hitting and Throwing/Pitching

***If you have a group of 2 or more players - 1 family will register for the time and choose the number of players - that family will be charged the full amount of the session and the splitting of the cost is up to the family's. Example - I want my son and 3 of his friends to work out together, I sign up my son for a time slot and choose the (4 players) option - I would be charged the full $120 when I register and would need to get the $30 from the 3 friends that come with him to the clinic.
