Volunteer To Help Montgomery Baseball
News


 

2019 MBL Annual Board Elections! 

The Montgomery Baseball League is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization; we cannot operate without active participation from the community.  As such, we are actively seeking volunteers to serve on the 2018 MBL Board of Directors.

 

We seek volunteers who are committed to the entire league - across all age groups - and can make decisions for the benefit of the entire program and not just a single age group or division.  We look for members who can not only dedicate their time to the program, but who also have the ability to recruit other volunteers to work with them in their respective area.  While being an active MBL Board member has a certain degree of responsibility, it is also a very rewarding experience and well worth your time.

 

Each year we seek to retain a number of our existing volunteers to ensure continuity in our program while at the same time attracting new board members to bring in new ideas and energy, and to represent our younger player generations. All Board positions are open for election each year (with the exception of the role of “Past President”) and we know that several existing board members will not seeking re-election this year, so we encourage you to seriously consider joining the Board. 

 

There are 12 different Board position available and open to election that will allow you to contribute time in an area that interests you most. (As noted above the 2019 MBL Board will consist of 13 Board members including the “Past President” position). 

Descriptions of the roles and responsibilities of these positions can be found on the MBL web site under the "General Information" link (select “Board Positions” from the Categories drop-down list). 

 

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Montgomery Baseball Board of Directors, please complete an application (which can be found on the MBL web site under the "Documents" link) and follow the submission instructions on the form. The deadline for submission is Monday - October 1st! The new Board will be announced by October 31st

 2018 USA BASEBALL BAT STANDARDS NOW AVAILABLE!

USABat Standard Baseball Bats


USA Baseball Logo

 

 

 

 

Starting in 2018, to be legal for play in Little League, Pony Baseball, Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth Baseball, AABC, AAU and Dixie Youth Baseball, your bat will need the USABat stamp on it.

 

Long story short, everyone who plays with the Montgomery Baseball League (league and tournament play) under the Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken Baseball chartered organization and the other organizations mentioned above will need to buy a new bat starting in 2018. These bats will perform like wood bats. Baseballs will likely not be hit as far with these bats, BUT the larger diameter barrel on the baseball bats can and will make the baseball easier to hit for many players. See the chart below and please feel free to visit http://www.baberuthleague.org/ for more information.
