MBL Annual Board Elections!
The Montgomery Baseball League is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization; we cannot operate without active participation from the community. As such, we are actively seeking volunteers to serve on the 2017 MBL Board of Directors.
We seek volunteers who are committed to the entire league - across all age groups - and can make decisions for the benefit of the entire program and not just a single age group or division. We look for members who can not only dedicate their time to the program, but who also have the ability to recruit other volunteers to work with them in their respective area. While being an active MBL Board member has a certain degree of responsibility, it is also a very rewarding experience and well worth your time.
Each year we seek to retain a number of our existing volunteers to ensure continuity in our program while at the same time attracting new board members to bring in new ideas and energy, and to represent our younger player generations. All Board positions are open for election each year (with the exception of the role of “Past President”) and we know that several existing board members will be retiring and not seeking re-election this year, so we encourage you to seriously consider joining the Board.
There are 12 different Board position available and open to election that will allow you to contribute time in an area that interests you most. (As noted above the 2017 MBL Board will consist of 13 Board members including the “Past President” position)

Montgomery Baseball Complex Shut Down!
"...and now, the end is near..."
"...and so we face, the final curtain..."
Yes, the end of the baseball season is fast approaching, and soon it will be time to close down the McKnight Baseball Complex until next spring...and we could use a hand! Every year we ask for volunteers to help us in tasks big and small - taking down nets, bringing is L-screens, shutting down the snack bar, etc. - and this year is no different. We can use a few ladders and folks with pick-up trucks. So please join us on the morning of Saturday, October 29, from 9:00 AM - Noon. We'll supply the coffee, donuts, a smile, and a firm handshake...if you will supply the hands. It really doesn't take much - and many hands make light work! We hope you will consider joining us!
Equipment Bag Return!
Managers & Coaches: Please return all equipment bags to the McKnight Complex garage on Saturday, October 29 from 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM. Thank you!!
Recommended Parent Viewing: "Changing the Game in Youth Sports" TED Talk
Please watch this 14 minute TED Talk video titled "Changing the Game: A Parent's Guide to Raising Happy, High-Performing Athletes & Giving Youth Sports Back to Our Kids"
Some key takeaways:
I hope you will take the time to watch the video and if you enjoy it, please share it. Share it with families that have children in youth sports. Share it with coaches, schools and organizations that are struggling to serve the needs and priorities of our kids in a youth sports world that sometimes does not allow our children to “Play” anymore. Share it with like minded people so that we all realize that we are the silent majority, and that youth sports can and will change. We have the power to change it the right way, and make it about our players first.
