Fall Ball is entirely volunteer run & we need a legion of folks to help pull it off. The planning and prep is nearly complete but now we need help filling shifts at the parks. The season runs five Sundays from 9/12 - 10/10 with the majority of the work at Armatage Park. Every hour volunteered is $10 for your player's 2022 out-of-state tournament. We have shifts for players, siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, whomever you want. The sign-up genius can be found here. We hope you can join us!

Join us this fall!
The Millers host a house-league, mixed-ages fall program that’s focused on fun, meeting other players, practicing skills and most importantly, playing the game! Our Fall Ball program is a fundraising opportunity hosted by our 12U travel program teams. 12U families provide a community-building baseball experience in exchange for funding their out-of-state tournaments during the upcoming season. Although there is less emphasis on competition and results, there are still lots of opportunities for growth -- as players, leaders, young people, and MILLERS!
Here are the details:
No prior experience with MYBA is necessary. In fact, we encourage players new to the Millers! Please tell your friends.
Players at all levels of experience and skill are encouraged to join MYBA Fall Ball. We do not host tryouts and everyone who registers will play.
The program is organized so that all teams have a mix of experience and playing levels, resulting in relatively evenly matched teams. This allows more experienced players to mentor less experienced players and develop their leadership skills, while exposing less experienced players to players and a level of play that will push their understanding and personal development.
Teams are mixed ages. Last year, Mini Millers from 2nd and 3rd grade made up the youngest division. Rising 10 & 11U players made up the intermediate division, and rising 12&13U players formed the oldest division. This format may change depending on the number of players, but plan on mixed-age teams.
The season runs for five Sundays following Labor Day weekend. Each team will play two games every Sunday (weather permitting).
All games will be held at either Armatage or Kenny Park with games running from 8:00am to 4:00pm. Teams will play other MYBA fall ball teams in their age group.
The cost for the Fall Ball season will be between $82 per player. No refunds for inclement weather, illness, scheduling conflicts, planned absences or no-shows. Full payment will be collected online prior to the season starting.
No uniforms will be provided for Fall Ball. Players may wear their Millers uniform for games or simply an orange or blue t-shirt. Baseball pants, protective cup, glove, and baseball hat are required. Batting helmets are strongly encouraged, but if you don't own one you may use a MYBA-provided helmet. Plastic cleats are encouraged, but not required.
Consistent with the Metro Baseball League's new bat rules, bats can have either the USA Baseball or USSSA stickers on the taper. If your player does not have their own bat or batting helmet, please email Fallball@mplsmillers.org to discuss options.
If your player is interested in trying catcher during Fall Ball, all protective equipment will be provided.
Team formation will occur the first week in September. All fees must be paid in full to be considered for a roster spot.
You will receive an email from your coach after team formation with the game schedule for the full season. It is up to the discretion of the coaches whether to schedule additional practices. We will post rosters and schedules on this page in early September.
We will make every effort to honor one mutual friend request if your player would like to pair up with a friend. This request will be recorded during the registration process. Please plan ahead to ensure your friend request is a match with another player.
Full concessions and Millers merchandise will be available for sale every Sunday, weather permitting.
Players, coaches and families will be expected to follow any Covid recommendations provided by city, state or federal officials.
Sign-up deadline (including all fees paid in full) is Sunday, August 31st. Late registrations might be accepted, provided there is space on a team, but are not guaranteed and are subject to an additional $25 late sign-up fee.
