Letter from League President


Dated: 11/4/2019

Hello Margate Baseball & Softball Family,

                I wanted to take the time to update everyone on the status of the league and our current plans as well as future plans. First, I wanted to take the time to thank everyone for being part of our great league. Our league greatly depends on all our volunteers from coaches, umpires, parents and more importantly the kids we have in our league. We all work together to make sure our kids have a great place and a great organization to play in.

As always, the board is continuing their efforts to make our league better each year and have this be not only the league, but the city, where everyone wants to play. The league and the city continue to work together to make the baseball experience in Margate a great place to play and a great place to meet new friends. We had a great Fall season thus far with numbers exceeding our expectations and being one of the busier Fall seasons have had in a while. We have many new players that have joined our league as well. Margate Baseball & Softball will continue, as always, to be the league that everyone wants to play in with a continued reputation of our league offering the best competition around.  

We are ramping up for our Spring Season, registrations open now, and are expecting a big turnout. We have reached an agreement with the City of North Lauderdale to have their participants register with Margate Baseball & Softball. This is a great partnership in so many aspects of youth sports. This will help increase the number of teams we have while also giving kids a league play in. So everyone is clear, there will not be separate North Lauderdale teams. The kids that register from North Lauderdale will go through our tryouts and be placed in the draft just like we currently do. The partnership will not cause any changes to how we currently operate. This will also give us the opportunity to have additional field access that is close to our fields. We will have more information on fields as things get closer.

League rules have been and will continue to be top of mind. The integrity and reputation of the league and the City of Margate is a major focus for the board and the only way we can do this is to offer a great community baseball program while protecting each and every child that is part of our league. Safety has and always will be our top priority as should be by any youth organization. We will continue to revamp our rules and policies to make sure we are current with anything and everything that may put a child at risk.  With the addition of new board members, we have the opportunity to look at things in a different perspective and work on new ideas collaboratively.

On a final note I want to THANK EVERYONE for their participation and being part of our great baseball program. We would not be able to get this done without people volunteering, giving feedback and doing what is right by our league. As a board, we are here to answer any questions you may have and are always open to suggestions on how we can make things better. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions please email Thank you again and we look forward to a great Spring season!
