Why should I choose to play at Minooka Baseball and Softball Association?

MBSA offers one of the best values and atmospheres for youth baseball and softball players to learn the game and form lifelong memories and friendships in the area.

Highlights include:

  • We have a family friendly encouraging atmosphere 
  • We offer several levels of baseball and softball depending on your level of skill and competitive desire; in-house, part-time travel and All-Stars.
  • All of our fields are located in the Minooka and Shorewood area and are well maintained.
  • We have no hidden volunteer, fundraising, or other fees.

Where are MBSA fields located?

  • Baseball and Softball will play games near downtown Minooka on the grounds of Minooka Elementary School and the Primary Center.
  • Softball plays games at Cene's Four Seasons Park on Seil Road in Shorewood IL
Where is the MBSA indoor facility?
  • The MBSA indoor facility is located at 108 Industrial Drive, Unit A, Minooka IL 60447.

Can I smoke or bring my dog to the MBSA fields?

  • We ask that you please leave your cigarettes at home.
  • Leashed and well behaved dogs are always welcome at MBSA fields.

Can I request a coach or request to have my player on the same team as a friend?

  • The only requests that can be accommodated are for siblings to be on the same team.

Can I get a refund if my player decides not to play?

  • Although we understand players have different reasons for not wanting to play, we only have so many spots available per level. A refund will be issued before evaluations are held and teams are selected. No refund will be provided after teams are selected. 

Will I be required to perform any fundraising?

  • MBSA does not require our families to perform any additional fundraising as part of their participation in any of our programs.  Each family will be provided with an opportunity to recoup some of the cost of their player(s) registration through selling raffle tickets at the beginning of the Spring /Summer season.  The selling of the raffle tickets is voluntary and will give a family the opportunity to recoup up to $100 of each players registration cost.

As a parent of a player, will I be required to volunteer in any way during the season?

  • MBSA is a volunteer run, not-for-profit organization, and cannot be run without the help of our volunteers that make up our board, coach our teams, act as team parents, and help in other ways throughout the league.  We always welcome volunteers and would be happy to discuss ways in which you can volunteer within our league.
  • As a parent of a player, you and your team will be responsible for running the concession stand during home games.  This can include opening and closing the concession stand at the beginning and end of the game, manning the stand with workers who are 18 years of age or older, restocking the supplies at the end of your shift, and relaying any issues or concerns to the league officials.  The concession stand duties and schedule is typically organized by the Team Parent of your team and you will likely be asked to only work one game or part of two games (depending on the number of players on each team). 

When and where will practice be held?

  • Practice dates, times and locations are set by each individual manager.  After teams are selected, parents will be contacted by the coach with additional information.

When will games be held?

  • It varies from league to league, but typically each team plays 2 games to week with one being played during the week and one on Saturdays.  This will vary and more or less may be played.
