American League 2021

NEW for 2021:
Majors baseball will now be split into two different levels.

National League (2nd-3rd grade) will focus on development and teaching skills.  This league is geared for a modified kid pitch/coach pitch level of play.

American League (3rd-4th grade) will focus on development and teaching skills but is designed for those players who are more advanced/competitive in their abilities to throw/hit/catch.  This league is geared for a more competitive level of play.  All fourth grade players will be placed in the American League.  

Players in 2nd-4th grade will be evaluated at The Furniture and Things Event Center located at 1000 School St NW Elk River, MN 55330 (the former Elk River Ice Arena) the weekend of March 6th and 7th . If your player does not go through evaluations, then he/she will NOT have the option to play in the American League (competitive kid pitch level); he/she will be automatically placed in the National league.
