Welcome to the Online Home of the 18U Michigan Jets!

 

 

 

The Michigan Jets are an 18 & under travel baseball team. In 2011, 2012, and 2013, they were known

as the Michigan Jets. In 2009, they were known as the Michigan Mustangs. In 2008, they were known

as the Michigan Moose. They did not have a team in 2010. Please look farther down the page to see

their accomplishments.

 

They are looking for players for the 2014 summer season. 

 

If you have any questions (and/or) are interested in joining the team,

please send an e-mail to MichiganJets18u@aol.com,

2487528185@vtext.com, and to MIMustangs18u@aol.com as soon as 

possible to discuss the opportunity. Also feel free to text or call 1-

248-752-8185 at any time to discuss the opportunity.

 

In order to play, players either must have been born May 1, 1995, or later, or they must qualify under

USSSA By-Law 3.01.B. If you do not know what USSSA By-Law 3.01.B. is, feel free to ask.

This team has three non-parent coaches.


We have a place for players from out-of-state to stay if necessary.

 

The Jets are planning on playing in nine tournaments in 2014.

Seven or eight will be in Michigan and one or two will be in Ohio. 

 

The cost per position player for the summer season is $450. The cost for

pitchers-only is $350. If player would like to, they can fundraise to

lower the cost for themselves. This makes the Jets a very affordable and
