MYBA would like to welcome our newest Grand Slam sponsor this year. From now on, Field 2, will be referred to as Morton Dental Center field.
A special thanks to MYBA and MHS baseball alum Dr. Pete Smidt for offering to sponsor Field 2. Dr. Pete has a great legacy with Morton Baseball and we are happy that he has offered to help the next generation of Morton Baseball players. Thanks Dr. Pete and we will see about getting that sign in the outfield where that first home run was hit when you were 9 years old. ;)

MYBA is happy to announce that Lovell and Littlefield Orthodontics has signed up as a Triple Sponsor again in 2019. I think everyone in Morton with young kids has dealt with Dr. Lovell and Dr. Littlefield at one time and have sung their praises. We are proud to partner with them again for this upcoming year. Thank you for the donation.
Dr. Lovell is also one of our Travel coaches and volunteers as an associate board member.
If you would like to join Lovell and Littlefield Orthodontics as a sponsor, contract Tim Taylor at 309 642 0008
MYBA would like to thank Jimmy John’s for repeating as a GRAND SLAM sponsor. Jimmy Johns has been a great partner for MYBA for a couple of years and thru their generosity has turned Jimmy John’s field into our best youth field at the park. For their sponsorship, we no longer refer to that field by the former name, but on all correspondence on our website, notices and at the ballpark, it is known as Jimmy John’s field. Take a look at the pictures and see how great that field looks.
If you would like to have a field named after your company, please contract MYBA and let us tell you about the different sponsorship levels.
The Morton Youth Baseball Organization (MYBA) fundraising campaign is off to a great start.
We are really excited, not only for our league, but for our community to announce that “Potter’s Alley” (formerly Safari Bowl) has signed up to be a Triple Sponsor. They plan on opening for business in January. We are grateful for their contribution and especially excited to have a bowling alley stay open in Morton. Thank you, Richard and Diane Jones, for including MYBA in your marketing plan.
As we receive commitments for 2019 MYBA partners, companies and individuals will be acknowledged on our website and social media pages.
Triple sponsorship includes logo’s on our website and social media pages, recognition on the concession stand sponsorship board, and recognition during tournaments (signs, entry forms. and t-shirts). In addition, large outfield fencing banners facing Veterans Road will be placed.
Different levels of sponsorship from Single to Grand Slam are also available. A Grand Slam sponsorships includes everything in a Triple sponsorship plus company logo on our travel team banners and a field named after your company for the 2019 season with appropriate signage on the field.
