Monticello Baseball Families,
Registration for the 2020 season is open for both players and coaches. Go to www.montibaseball.com and click on the registration tab at the top of the page to complete registration.
Reminder, evaluations are being held at the Monticello High School on Saturday, March 21st (evaluation times will be published soon), if your child wishes to play competitive (traveling) baseball this season, they need to be registered before the tryout date. Coaches please sign up as soon as possible so we can determine the number of teams.
New for 9U-10U (3rd Grade – 4th Grade) and staying the same for age groups 11U-14U (5th Grade - 8th Grade), we will again be considering a second competitive team at each level based on numbers and interest. During registration you will be given an option of choosing Competitive or Recreational. Choosing Competitive means your child is committed to playing on a traveling team, if chosen, which typically plays 16 games, 2 tournaments and practices 1 or 2 times per week. We limit competitive teams to 11 players, so we do look for a commitment from these players. Choosing Recreational would mean your child would play approximately 16 games locally with Becker, Big Lake and Clear Lake and practice 1 time per week, along with a year end tournament. In both cases, there will be a few practices a week before games begin and will be determined by coaches.
If you are unable to attend the evaluations/tryouts, please send an email with the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:

7. Additional Information:(if applicable)
We have a 6U level which is open to 5 and 6-year-old boys and girls finishing kindergarten. It will be an introduction to baseball skills with practices and games on Tuesday nights for 1 hour. Kids will receive a Dri-Fit tee shirt and Richardson hat.
We will be doing a Heggies Pizza fundraiser again this year. There is a $25 fundraising deposit in the registration, which you can earn that back by selling 10 pizzas. If you sell 20 pizzas, you will get an extra $25 for a total of $50 in return. This fundraiser was very successful last year and we would like to thank everyone again who participated. We raised enough money to purchase new training and development tools for our teams. Some of those items were new flight control balls, weighted training balls and a new portable mound for the city fields. With the addition of these items, teams and coaches are able to be more efficient in teaching skills that help the kids enjoy the game and be successful as they grow and develop.
As we did last year, we are eliminating evaluations for the 6U and 8U levels. During registration we will be asking for the child’s skill level. The choices will be Beginner, Intermediate and Experienced with a short description. Please choose the best fit and be as honest as possible as this helps us create fairly matched teams. Even though scores are not kept, it is a modified game at this level, we want to make it enjoyable for everyone.
Thank you for your continued support!
