When they start the game, they don't yell, "Work ball." They say, "Play ball." ~Willie Stargell
In-house coaches will meet Saturday, April 25. They will contact their players the following week with team and practice info. Please wait until May 4 to contact MAYBA staff to ask about this information. It could take up to a week for coaches to make contact with everyone.
My player is 14 years old. What are the options this year?
The house program ends after age 13. Players 14 and older would play through our travel program. We offer 4 teams for 14 year olds. The 14AAA, 14AA and 14/15A Black play in the Metro League and participate in weekend tournaments. The 14A Gray team plays in the South Central League. The only weekend tournament would be the league tournament in July. The league generally plays on Tuesdays and Thursdays but the playing dates have not been set for 2015 yet.
When do In-House practices and games start?
Practices will start the first week in May after players are contacted by their coaches. Games will begin the first week in June and extend through the third week in July.
When can I sign my child up to play baseball?
Mayba allows children who are either 6 years old by May 1st or are currently attending kindergarten to start in our program. All signups for 2015 will be online through the Mayba website. Registration for travel baseball has started. In-house registration will start on approximately February 1, 2015.
MAYBA Fest - March 7th and 8th, 2015
Mayba Fest will be held on March 7th and 8th at the Riverhills Mall. Join us at the Mall to learn more about our program and to register your child for the 2015 season.
Do I sign up by grade or by age?
If the difference between your player's age and grade is greater than or less than 6 you need to indicate if you want your child to play by age or by grade. By grade will place your player with classmates. By age may mean the player will play with players a grade younger or older than your player's current grade. If the difference equals 6 - then your players age and grade would be at the same level.
When is the Mayba Warehouse Open?
The warehouse is now open for the season.
What equipment do I need for travel baseball?
If you are intending on playing travel baseball through our Royals program you will need to provide the glove, pants and cleats. The Royals program will provide the jersey, socks and a hat.
What night would my child play for the house league?
Children, ages 6, 8 and 10 play on Monday and Wednesday night. Children, ages 7, 9, 11, and 12/13 will play on Tuesday and Thursday night.
What is the difference between travel and the house league?
The Mankato Youth Baseball Association offers two programs for players in the Greater Mankato Area. The first program you would participate in is our House Program. It is offered to players ages 6-13 years old. Games are played during the week with the majority of the games in Mankato/North Mankato. The Travel Program is available to players 10-18 years old. It involves a tryout process and weekend tournaments. Travel ages 14-18 also participate in league play.
