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.
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.
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.
Cost is $140 and will cover uniform and all fees. (Price subject to change)
2003-4 for 16U (likely not enough players to field a team)
2005-6 for 14U
2007-8 for 12U
2009-10 for 10U
MN Fall State Tournament: (One day tournament...typically held locally however Mankato and St. Cloud typically host one of the tiers. )
What: Our Fall youth baseball league is informal, organized pick-up type games. It's laid back, but we still expect commitment to a certain degree. e.g. If you expect to miss two or more games, we wouldn't advise signing up.

Where: Ford Fields.
When: Five Saturdays beginning Sept 7th and ending on October 5th. Games are in the morning and most games should be done by midafternoon(younger aged teams will play first in the morning).

Teams: Divided by grade/age groups and players will stay on same team for all five weeks. Two coaches per team and you will have the same coach the entire fall ball season. No buddy requests.
