St. Paul Highland Ball

Fall Softball

Fall Ball provides existing Highland softball players an opportunity to continue to broaden their softball experiences. Fall Ball is also a great chance for girls thinking about trying out for a PLUS or Traveling team next summer to experience additional competitive opportunities in an abbreviated and slightly less intense fall season setting. 

Fall Ball is player pitch

Teams are placed in appropriate tiers at the end of the season based on wins/losses to play competitive teams in the year end State Tournament. 

Evaluation

Evaluations will be held if we have more than enough girls to fill a team at a particular age level.  If they are necessary they will are typically held the first week in August.

Commitment
It is important the registered player attends all practices and games. It is possible to have teams of 9-10 and if a player is gone this really impacts the team.

  • One practice per week
  • 5 weekends of play 

Games

  • Games are not played in Highland.  This is a traveling league and played in surrounding communities such as Lakeville, Farmington and Hastings.
  • Teams play double headers each Saturday (10u) or Sunday (12-14u), at either 12 pm and 1:30 pm or 3 pm and 4:30 pm. Schedules usually come out each Wednesday before the weekend of play.

Cost

  • Cost is $140 and will cover uniform and all fees.  (Price subject to change)

Age Groups

2003-4 for 16U  (likely not enough players to field a team)
2005-6 for 14U
2007-8 for 12U
2009-10 for 10U

 

Rosters

  • 12 players max per team is our goal. 
  • Every effort will be made to place girls on a team, however some girls may not be placed if there are not have enough players to field a team at a particular age level.
