2014 - 20th Anniversary for The Mid-Iowa Baseball League

Final Pre-Season Round-Up for Fees & Supplies

Baseballs, Scorebooks & Lineup Cards will be available for pickup on Thursday, April 24th from 4:30pm - 7:00pm.  Pickup location is:  Robert Half Printing Warehouse, 2102 SE Creekview Drive, Ankeny This is just north of the Courtyard by Marriott that we have our manager meetings at.

Final League Fees for the 18+ & 25+ Divisions will also be due at that time.

35+ & 45+ Managers should bring their $1,000 deposits.  Final fees for these two divisions have yet to be finalized as we continue to secure fields.


 

 

 

Umpires Needed

Umpire Director, Robin McQuerry, continues to look for umpires for our early season, Sunday afternoon games.  If you know of anyone with umpiring experience, please have them contact Robin or fill out the umpire sign-up form on this website.


Online Registration/Waiver

4/23 Update:  We have about 220 online registrations completed.   MANAGERS...please have your players register so there are no issues as the season approaches.  If a person plays in a game & has not completed a waiver, a forfeit could be enforced.

Each individual player, including managers, should complete their registration for the 2014 season.  Please complete the form in its entirety and be sure to enter your information carefully and accurately.  Paper copies of the waiver remain available under the Waivers/Forms menu on the left.  Even if you complete a paper copy, you are encouraged to also complete an online waiver.

This form should only be completed by players already rostered with a team.  If you are a free agent, please do not complete until you are signed by a team.

Roster Clean-up

4/23 Update:  MANAGERS, please follow the directions below & update your team site with your current rosters.  Some players that have registered are not yet appearing on rosters.  Anyone appearing in a game must be on your roster & have a waiver completed.

Managers:  Please update your rosters with players that have agreed to play in 2014.  We will begin to cross-reference with those that have completed their online waiver/registration.  FYI--An asterisk (*) will be placed next to the player's name when their completed waiver is received.  This will be a manual process & will be updated at least weekly.

Any players that are deemed as "reserve/protected", feel free to include them on your roster in the following manner:  Log on to your team site, click on "Edit", add the player names in the "Comments" section at the bottom.  Please use the 35+ Bulldogs as a reference.

Please remember that our national rules state that any player that has not played with a team in the previous year has become a free agent and can sign with any team without completing a player release form.
