Your team selects the one location that is the most convenient and that will be your home for the TBD Fall League.

12 players to a team and teams play 2 five inning games in a three hour time frame for five Sundays.  Games are scheduled tournament style so on the last Sunday teams will compete for first place and the winners receive Championship t-shirts, trophys, and genuine fake champagne! 

In 2015 between Sioux City and the Iowa Great Lakes there were TWENTY FOUR teams!  See all information, locations, and how to sign up below and GET YOUR GUYS SIGNED UP TODAY!!!

Players are responsible for:

- Own equipment; including bats, helmets, gloves, catching gear, baseball pants, and protective gear.  You will be provided with a numbered t-shirt jersey and a field to play on . . . Get after it!

- Own good attitudes - You are already on a baseball field so that should put you into the good attitude mood already.  Appreciate the abilities that you have and play hard.

- Own hustle - Move the games along as sessions are timed.  If you walk on the field then you are losing at bats and opportunities to make great plays.  Do not leave any innings on the table.  90 % of hustle is on the players, with 5% on the coaches and 5% on the umpires.  The more hustle exuded the more baseball played . . . and more baseball is a good thing.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
