Fall Ball

Fall Ball is an instructional season designed to prepare players for the next level of play. It is meant to develop fundamentals and play a variety of positions. Many Fall Ball players also play another sport during this season (football, soccer, etc.).

Ball is available to players who were "league-age" 7-15 for the 2023 spring season. We do not have offerings outside those ages and cannot make exceptions due to District 1 guidelines.
MCLL will be participating in District 1's program. This means we are governed by their age alignments and rules. You can click HERE to view this information. Note: We have no control over the District 1 schedule, so we are not able to answer any questions about days/times, etc. 
Registration fee for District 1 Fall Ball is still TBD, but will be less than the regular season. Fees will be applied to accounts once we know if we will have enough registrants to field a team.
