Register Now for M-ALL Fall Ball!

It’s time for Fall Ball registration! Fall Ball 2017 is for all players who will be between 8 and 12 (baseball age) for the Spring 2018 season. To register, go to www.m-all.org and click FALL BALL REGISTRATION or simply click here. Returning players should use their prior season M-ALL log-in information to register.

M-A LL plans to offer two Fall Ball programs. Based on feedback from our league families in recent years, we have tailored the division structures to optimize and balance opportunities for fun AND development in each age group.

Programs

  • Juniors Division

This division is designed for 8, 9 and 10 year-olds who played AA or AAA in the Spring and thus have 0-1 year of kid pitch experience. Each team will begin practicing after Labor Day and games will commence in mid-September. The season will end the first week of November.

“Game weeks” will include 1 weekday afternoon practice and 1 weekend game. In addition, there will be at least two clinics led by professional coaches early in the season -- one focused specifically on pitching and another on hitting.

  • Seniors Division

This division is designed for 10, 11 and 12 year-olds who played Minors or Majors in the Spring. Teams will NOT be formed immediately. Rather, all players in this division will begin the season after Labor Day with instructional clinics, led by professional coaches.

There will be 3 clinics per week for the first 4 weeks. One will be dedicated to position play – infield, outfield, catching and pitching. Another will be dedicated to hitting. The third weekly clinic will focus on baseball situations – a game-like experience that will be fun and enlightening for players and coaches alike.

After the 4 weeks of clinics (12 total) have ended, teams will be formed and the players will move to 1 weekday afternoon practice and 1 weekend game for the next 3 weeks. On the final weekend of the season, the teams will participate in a “Jamboree” – essentially a small tournament.

The registration fee for both divisions is $150.

50/70 Fall Ball

Players who “aged-out” of Majors last season (were baseball age 12 in Spring 2017) may have the opportunity to play Fall Ball in a 50/70 Intermediate League. This division plays on an intermediate size field (50 foot pitching mound, 70 foot bases) using conventional baseball rules (e.g., base runners can lead off). Ability to do this will depend on interest – both from players and coaches. If you have an eligible player who would be interested in 50/70 Fall Ball, please contact our Registrar ( ).

Division Placement

Players will be placed in a Fall Ball division automatically. Division placement is based on a player’s age and prior playing division experience. Click here to determine your player’s “baseball age”. 

Why Play Fall Ball?

All returning Majors, Minors, AAA and AA players that meet the age guidelines are encouraged to participate in Fall Ball. Players will have the opportunity to learn new skills and improve existing skills – and most importantly, have some fun! 

Fall Ball is low key and developmental. With the exception of the “Jamboree” in the final week of the Seniors Division season, game scores and win/loss records will not be kept and no trophies will be awarded.

If you know players who did not play little league baseball in Spring 2017 and might like to participate this Fall, please let them know about this program!

Please direct any specific questions to  . We look forward to seeing you on the field!

Hit-a-Thon May 7, 2017
Hurry up kid!<br>

On Sunday May 7th, Menlo-Atherton Little League held our 8th annual “Hit-a-Thon” fundraiser.  As a community-focused, volunteer-only organization we hold this yearly fundraiser to bridge the gap between registration fees and operating costs.  Thank you to families, friends and neighbors who gathered at Burgess Park to support players from all divisions to make this year’s fundraiser a HUGE success.  With your support we will continue to build on our goal of providing an unsurpassed youth sports experience for the Menlo-Atherton community.

2016 Coaches Appreciation and Awards Dinner

 

M-A Little League wrapped up the 2016 season at its annual Coaches Appreciation Dinner held on November 17, at Lutticken’s in Menlo Park. At the dinner, the League announced its two most prestigious coaching awards: the Rory Fuerst Award and the Scott Barnum Award.

 

The Rory Fuerst Award is M-A Little League’s highest honor for a coach, and is intended to recognize a person who has given continually, not only for his or her own children, but to the greater Little League family and M-A community, leaving a lasting impact on the league. The Board recognizes an individual who "left the League in a better place than he found it." This year's nominees were Jeff Phillips, Bob Baxter, Chris Weseloh and Gary Wiseman. Incoming M-ALL President Mike Haven announced that the award recipient for 2016, as voted on by the board, is Chris Weseloh. The Rory Fuerst Award is a high honor, and is especially so for Chris, because he has a family connection to Rory. Chris’ grandfather and Rory’s father-in-law were each other’s attorneys, and Rory built the baseball field at St. Raymond School, were Chris attended as a child. The two of them worked together to re-build the baseball field at the former German-American School, which is now Upper Laurel School. And Chris replaced Rory in 2005 when he retired from managing the fields for our league, and Chris continued to manage field maintenance until 2012. Chris served as AAA Commissioner for 3 years, and coached in the league for a decade. He worked to integrate Fall Ball into M-ALL, he helped develop the current division system, and encouraged team meals for families in the league.

 

The Scott Barnum Award, is awarded to the coach who best exemplifies the "spirit" of M-A Little League: "Play Fair, Strive to Win, Do One’s Best". Coaches are nominated by their peers in each division to receive their division's PCA Sportsmanship Award at the conclusion of the Spring season. The M-ALL Board then selects one of these division coaches as the leagues Official Nominee for Positive Coaching Alliance's, the Double-Goal Coach Award. The 2016 winner of The Scott Barnum Award is Drew Crousore!

It is our good fortune and honor to have both Chris and Drew as a part of the M-ALL community. Please join us in congratulating them on their outstanding contributions and accomplishments.
