MONTGOMERY BASEBALL LEAGUE is hosting a Pitch Hit & Run Competition on Friday, May 13 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM at our McKnight Complex Fields A and D for Boys & Girls born between July 18, 2001 and July 17th, 2009!

Pitch Hit & Run is a FREE event created by Major League Baseball. Participants compete in the 3 skill events and accumulate a total score. The highest scorers for each age group (7/8s, 9/10s, 11/12s, 13/14s) move on from this local level to the Sectionals.

Winning at the local MLB Ball Park will mean a chance to compete at National Finals - MLB All-Star Week, San Diego Petco Park! National Finalists will receive an all-expense paid trip to the All-Star Game. Finalists will participate in an array of festivities upon arrival, including a PHR Welcome Reception, MLB Brunch and All-Star FanFest.

50 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!  

In 1966, Montgomery Baseball League threw out its first pitch.  From it's early days at township parks, through the growth and expansion of Montgomery and Rocky Hill, the development of our world class McKnight Baseball Complex, to today's program of almost 400 players from almost 300 families, we are proud of our rich history and deeply appreciate the families, volunteers and generous sponsors that have made MBL what it is today - one of the best youth baseball leagues in America.
 

Over these 50 years, we built more than a vibrant league and a world class complex.  Whether it was our children playing games in the sun or under the light, 500 players and family members taking over a minor league ball park stadium, or hundreds of residents taking over McKnight Complex on movie night, we helped build friendships that have outlasted MBL playing days.  It's why we like to say we're building community.

So in 2016, as we celebrate our gold glove anniversary, look for special events to celebrate our history, our future, our community.  You are all a part of it and we look forward to celebrating together.

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:

    • The single greatest effect on performance is an athlete’s state of mind
    • Youth sports used to be about children competing against other children; now it is often adults competing against other adults through their children
    • Children play sports because it is fun; winning comes in way down the list
    • Children quit sports when they don’t get to play, and when winning becomes more important than enjoyment
    • 90% of children would rather play on a losing team than sit the bench on a winning team
    • Competition is important, but being competitive comes from putting the needs and priorities of our children first
    • We can all start changing youth sports for the better by learning five simple words (watch to learn what they are)

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.
