We hope everyone is safe and looking forward to being back on the baseball fields. We miss all of our MYB families we are so used to seeing during the spring. As you already know, our spring season has been postponed due to precautions related to COVID-19. The board has had many discussions and we plan to play when it is safe in 2020. We are hopeful and would prefer to be prepared then to miss out on a season. Our online registration is still open and we have added a pay by check option. If you are interested in participating with us when it is safe and have not already registered please make sure to register online asap at www.maldenyouthbaseball.org so we can count you on the roster, choose the pay by check option only. Payments will be collected if and when the program begins. For those who have already paid, we will be offering refund or credit options if the program is cancelled.
Thank you for your patience during these unexpected times and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.
