How many games are played per week?

All divisions generally play 1 game per week. At times, 2 games per week might be required to make-up or to work around scheduling limitations.

How often will the teams practice during the week?

The number of practices is determined by each division and coach, but typically teams in all divisions practice ate least one day per week.

Do you honor requests to have players placed on the same teams together?

We try to honor requests for players to play together, however, this generally would have to occur at the draft with the coaches identifying kids that are requesting each other as teammates as there are limitations on building rosters outside of the draft. 

What are the rules regarding new players to MABA joining existing teams?

New players to MABA will be required to enter the draft to be placed on a roster. They will be unable to join existing teams unless they are added to a roster in the "Prime" divisions. 

What are the rules regarding existing players changing teams within the league?

Existing players in the league will be unable to "switch" teams in the league without first entering the draft unless they are moving to a "Prime" team. This rule is to prevent "team stacking" and to increase the competitive balance of the league at the recreational level. 

Can new teams to the league bring a full team?

For the recreational division, new teams in the league will be capped at (4) roster spots that can be assumed by players prior to the draft for 6U-8U. In divisions 9U and over, new teams will be capped at (3) roster spots that can be assumed by players prior to the draft.

*If a coach wants to submit for special consideration for coming in with a roster over these established numbers, it will have to be presented to the Board of Directors for approval. 

What are player evaluations and when do they take place?

Player evaluations are open to all players registered to play in all divisions.  Players are evaluated for skills in batting, fielding, catching and throwing.  There are no “cuts” from these evaluations, rather this information is used in forming the teams in these divisions to ensure there is a balance of skill levels among teams that are building new rosters. 

When will I find out what team my child is on?

Teams are assembled in early February for the Spring season and in mid August for the Fall Season. After our Coaches meeting, you will receive communication from your child's assigned coach on the next steps and pertinent information moving forward. 

When will I find out the game schedule for my child’s team?

Schedules typically come out in mid-February for the Spring season and early September for the Fall season and will be posted to the website.  These game schedules will also integrate seamlessly into the GameChanger app, which will be utilized by many coaches for team communication, scorekeeping, etc. 

Where are the games played?

Most games will be scheduled to be played at Midlothian Community Park, however, there is a chance of needing to utilize Jaycee Park as well should our schedule necessitate extra facility utilization.
