As we wrap up another successful year, we’d like to say thank you to all of our volunteer associate board members, directors and most importantly parents who take the time to coach. Looking ahead, we have a lot in store for the coming year for MYBA. We are only as successful as those who are able to volunteer their time to help us continue to provide a baseball program that is built on development of both skills and the love of the game.
With that said, if you have any interest in becoming more involved, we are looking for new associate members, as well as to fill the following Board Director positions:
Indoor/Outdoor Hitting Facility Director
Our next Board Meeting is August 12, 6PM at Kuhl & Co. Anyone interested in getting more involved is encouraged to attend.
Please email Jason Vallar (firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested in any of these positions. Elections will be during the September Board Meeting, Monday Sept. 9, 6PM at Kuhl & Co.
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.
MYBA wants to welcome “Pumpkin Place” back as a sponsor of MYBA. MYBA is grateful for the numerous sponsors and especially those that continue to support us year after year. So a huge shout out to Pumpkin Place and many thanks.

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.
