Improvements at the Brenkman Memorial Indoor Facility
In addition to conducting our second Walk-in Registration Day, MYBA volunteers were busy making improvements to the Brenkman Memorial Indoor Facility. Hooks were installed on the West wall so that players can hang their gear up while they are hitting or throwing. Also, the main pitching mound was recovered with turf.
Special thanks to Jeremy Moza, Mike Davis, Doug Hischke, Drew Fuiten, Carson Smith, and Jacob Moza for their help!

Walk-in Registration This Coming Sat (2/28) from 9am to Noon
Walk-in registration begins this Saturday February 28 from 9am to Noon at the Indoor Facility at Westwood Park. If you have not yet registered your player(s) for MYBA or if you have registered using our online system but need to make your payment, stop by and a volunteer will be able to assist you. We are still in the need for coaches, volunteers, and of course board members so if you are interested contact an existing board member or see a volunteer at registration.
We will also have some items for sale (old Morton tournament t-shirts, jerseys, and hats), so feel free to browse through the selection before you head out.
Any questions, please contact Wayne Smith (309-339-3731)or Jason Killion (309-453-5283).
The MYBA Fundraising Committee is charged with generating revenue that goes directly into capital improvements for Westwood Park. It is our goal to improve the experience for both players and families. In two years, the Pumpkin To-Go drive thru raised nearly $10,000 that has gone directly into an irrigation system on field #6 (formally known as Lion’s Field) and new dugouts on field #5. Other past fundraising efforts have led to the construction of the such things as the stadium and press boxes.
For everyone who has participated in these efforts, thank you!
In addition to the drive-thru and our two tournaments, our fundraising is dependent upon business sponsorships.
This year we have broadened these opportunities and would like to offer them to anyone within MYBA who might have an interest or need of advertising through our sponsorship program.
If you are interested in understanding more about the opportunities to contribute to MYBA, please contact one of the committee members below.
Thank you for your continued support of the Morton Youth Baseball Association.
