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. ;)
There are still sponsorship opportunities with MYBA, so if you are interested in getting your business advertised at the ball park, please shoot us an e-mail.

Thanks to Central Illinois Chicago Cubs Booster Club
The Central Illinois Chicago Cubs Booster club has generously contributed to Morton Baseball for the third year in a row. We appreciate their continued support. Just to be fair, we cannot find a Cardinals or White Sox booster club to reach out to, but if any Cardinal or White Sox Fan wants to match the Cubs Booster club donation, please feel free to contact MYBA.
