Fall Baseball & Softball 2015
MBA Fall Ball registration is OPEN! In addition to our traditional Baseball and Softball Divisions listed below, we have received interest and inquiries about Fall Ball programs for two additional Baseball age groups: Instructional Baseball (League age 6 for next Spring as of 5/1/16) and Senior Baseball (League Ages 16-18 for next Spring as of 5/1/16). The exploratory registrations for Instructional Baseball and Senior Baseball don’t require payment at the time of registration -- If there is sufficient interest/registrations from players and coaches for this Fall we will go forward and collect payment at that time. Instructional Baseball will be similar to our Spring program for 6 year-olds, and Senior Baseball will be a local league similar to our Fall 13-15 program.
MBA Fall Ball registration is open for boys’ baseball ages 7-15 (based on league age for next Spring as of 5/1/2016; those who were 6-14 for the Spring 2015 season), and girls’ softball ages 6-16 (based on league age for next Spring as of 1/1/2016; those who were 5-15 for the Spring 2015 season). MBA players are encouraged to participate; registration is open to all. Registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis through August 15, 2015. Fall Ball registration is only available through MBA's online registration website:
The cost is only $55 per player if registered by July 31; $65 per player after July 31.
MBA Fall Ball Boys Baseball Divisions (all ages are based on league age as of 5/1/2016):
·Rookie Baseball (machine pitch), ages 7-8
·Minor Baseball (kid pitch), ages 9-10
·Major Baseball (games will be primarily on 50/70 fields with some games on 46/60 fields), ages 11-12
·Junior Baseball (all 60/90 fields), ages 13-15
MBA Fall Ball Girls Softball Divisions (all ages are based on league age as of 1/1/2016):
·Rookie Softball (coach and/or machine pitch), ages 6-8
·Minor Softball, ages 9-10
·Major Softball, ages 11-12
·Senior Softball, ages 13-16
Fall Ball is a great opportunity to extend the baseball/softball season from late August through October. The games are instructional (like the Spring rec season) and also involve some short distance travel to play against fall ball teams from other leagues. Boys’ baseball games will be primarily scheduled for Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Game times for the girls’ divisions are to be determined.
If you have any questions please contact Stephen Levine, Fall Ball Commissioner.

Methacton tops Boyertown, 7-3, for first District 1-AAAA championship
Methacton players celebrate. "It's an outstanding feeling," one said. CHARLES FOX / Staff Photographer CHARLES FOX / Staff Photographer
As Friday’s District 1-AAAA championship headed to the bottom of the fifth inning, momentum seemed to be waning for the Methacton baseball team.
Visiting Boyertown had just tied the game in the top half, Warriors starting pitcher John Wiedmayer appeared to be running out of gas and his Bears counterpart, Brandon Griesemer, looked like he had firmly settled in. Simply put, it was the moment of truth for Methacton.
