Fall Baseball 2019
Commissioner – Justin Riss
Edina Fall Baseball provides an opportunity for players entering Grades 2 – 5 to gain additional experience through an Edina Fall League. The season runs from August 26th through October 6th (with a final tournament the weekend of October 5-6). Don’t miss the fun! Space is LIMITED and the programs fill up fast. Registration will close for each program as it is filled or by August 16th. Players must be Edina residents and/or attend school in Edina.
2nd/3rd Grade Division: Kids entering 2nd and 3rd grade will play together and continue to work on baseball fundamentals in this coach pitch league. The general rule is that the 2nd/3rd grade division will play Monday evenings & Saturday afternoons. Practices and games scheduled during the week take place in the evenings, and practices and games scheduled on the weekend are played during the day. The games will be played in a House League and called by an umpire. The final weekend will be capped off with a Fall Tournament the weekend of October 6th.
4th/5th Grade Division: Kids entering 4th/5th grade will work on skill development in this combination kid pitch/coach pitch league. This additional training can build their confidence and improve the level of play for the EBA's green league if desired. The general rule is that the 4th/5th grade will play on Thursday evenings & Sunday afternoons. Coaches do have the option to schedule more practices once the season starts. Practices and games scheduled during the week take place in the evenings, and practices and games scheduled on the weekend are played during the day. The games will be played in a House League and called by a paid umpire. The final weekend will be capped off with a Fall Tournament the weekend of October 5-6.
Teams will be assigned by the league based upon such factors as schools, experience level, and balancing the teams. There will not be a draft. All players will be provided with a hat & t-shirt. Mutual play-together requests will be considered but are limited to 1 request per player.
If you are interested in coaching your child’s team, please register under the REGISTER ONLINE tab. We will try to staff each team with 2-3 coaches. An ideal situation would be for each team to have one head coach, and 1-2 assistant coaches. If you don’t want to take on a head coaching position, you may sign up to be an assistant coach.
Registration opens July 8th and closes for each program as it is filled or by August 16th at the latest. Each division will have a limited number of players. Cost for all divisions $125.
6th-9th Grade: We suggest that you take advantage of Metro Baseball www.mbl.bz or Gopher State www.myas.org.
