Montgomery / Rocky Hill Baseball Fans:
2014 Spring Recreation Registration
Is Now Open for All Players
Ages 4 to 15 - Pre-K and up!
We are pleased to announce exciting NEW changes to our lineup of programs for 2014!
- We are introducing a new, Pre-K division - Cougar Cubs - for players 4-5 years old that will start Kindergarten next Fall
- We will continue to have our successful I-Ball, D-Ball and Rookie programs - divisions for players in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade
- We have created a new 3rd/4th grade division - Minors - where the kids pitch, base stealing is allowed, and includes a certified umpire
- We have created a new 5th/6th grade division - Majors - which is played on our two intermediate "50/70" fields, adds leading, pick-offs, balks, base stealing and includes two certified umpires
- We are introducing more scheduling flexibility in our Babe Ruth (13 to 15 year olds) program to allow MHS and UMS athletes the opportunity to play MBL recreational baseball with their friends without conflicting with the school programs
In addition to our recreational leagues, we have many fun events in store for our players this season:
- Expanded Opening Day Ceremony Activities
- Applebee’s Family Pancake Breakfast
- Montgomery High School (MHS) home game hosted at our McKnight Complex
- MBL Family Night Out at the Somerset Patriots Game
- MBL Free Outdoor Movie Night at our McKnight Complex
- Expanded Championship Day Festivities
- And new for 2014: Team-specific calendars and optional text alerts for practice and game reminders!
- This year, with just a few clicks, you can create an account that makes registration easier and gives you access to new features from our website partner, League Lineup, including text alerts for your game and practice schedules and field closings when it rains.
- We have so much in store for our players, their families and our community this year!
NOTE: Specific details on game and practice schedules for each division will be available in early March, but all Spring Rec Baseball programs start on April 1st and run through June 15th (no sessions on planned for 5/12 & 5/19 due to Spring Break and 5/24 due to Memorial Day weekend).

MBL Opening Day (April 5th) Committee Forming
Opening Day is a celebration of baseball and community that is always one of the biggest highlights of our Montgomery Baseball League season. This year we anticipate an even bigger and better event than in years past. Learn how you can be part of the planning team by contacting Lauren Quatrocchi or Brian Smith.
SAVE THE DATE: McKnight Field Maintenance Work Day - March 22nd
Believe it or not, it's almost time to open the McKnight Baseball Complex for the 2014 Baseball Season. As we do every year in in mid-to-late March, a team of volunteers get together to help set up our batting cage nets, put up backstop screens, install bases, hang bat holders, and generally get the complex ready for play. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Our 2014 Field Maintenance Opening Work Day is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, March 22nd, at 9:30 AM (weather permitting) (our backup date is Saturday, March 29th, at 9:30 AM). With enough people, we typically complete the work by around 1:00 PM. The more volunteers show up to help out, the quicker the work gets done!
As you know, the Montgomery Baseball League is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization, and we rely on the involvement of so many to make things happen throughout the year. Your active participation, no matter how small, is key to our programs’ – as well as your child’s – success. From our lively Spring and Fall Rec programs, to our successful spring and summer Travel teams, to our popular Covino Tournament, to our wide ranging fundraising activities, to our hosting the first-ever baseball game for the Special Olympics of New Jersey - we could not have done all of this without YOU! Thank you!
