2018 All Star/Summer Baseball Registration

Welcome

Welcome to 2018 All Star/Summer Baseball Registration

With summer just around the corner, we need to get ready for the upcoming season.  With that said, our registration for the 2018 season is now open

The All-Star Tournament team at each age group from ages 8 to 12. The tournament roster is selected by the All-Star/Summer Head Coaches, spring season Head Coaches, Player Agents and Division Coordinator based on observations, evaluations and discussions. Players on the tournament teams must have played in at least 60% of games during the regular spring season. Tournament team rosters will be announced on June 1st or shortly thereafter.

Practices and games can run from early June through the middle of August, depending on the team and tournament entered, as well as the team's level of success. Tournament teams require a significant commitment on each family's part, including practices, games and travel.

The cost will be $180 per child to cover uniform, umpires, equipment, tournament fees, etc.

The MAALL board is busy preparing for the new year (creating teams, ordering equipment, assigning & training coaches, and creating the practice and game schedules for the entire league). 

This registration session will allow you to complete contact information, sign up for participation, and submit payment. Please read through each page carefully to ensure all information is provided accurately.  If you are familiar with our processes and system, please feel free to scroll to the bottom of the page and click the continue button.

We are looking forward to another great year.

Every effort will be made to form teams to accommodate kids as close to their age groups as possible.
