2017 Season Summary

 

 

Now that the 2016 season has come to a close, we want to make sure you are aware of the opportunities for the 2017 season.  As Minnetonka Baseball Association and the Excelsior Legion program continue to partner together, tryouts for the 2017 MBA Jr. Legion 2 (Travel 16/Bulldogs), MBA Sr. Legion 2 (Travel 17/18), Excelsior Jr. Legion, and Excelsior Sr. Legion teams will take place on the weekends of August 27/28 and September 4/5 at Veterans Field

 

Lugnuts and Mud Hens (MBA Sr. Babe Tier 1) will register later this coming winter and have tryouts separately in the Spring of 2017.  Prior to evaluations, the players will be able to prioritize teams based on which style (schedule/number of games) best fits their schedule.
