Farmington Traveling Baseball Association

2018 Registration

Registration for the 2018 season will open the first week of January.

Pitching and Catching Clinics

Once again FTBA will be providing extremely cheap pitching and catching clinics on Friday nights this winter.

We have teamed up with the Cages in Burnsville to provide a 5 week training/clinic session in pitching and catching.   The Cages is a first-class facility paired with some of the most quality and reliable instructors around (led by Ty McDevitt current U of Minnesota Pitching Coach).

 This is a great opportunity for current coaches and parents to get in depth knowledge around pitching and catching.   Coaches are encouraged to hang around and listen, film, ask questions to better serve your teams this summer.

Hurry as the sessions are filling up fast. The number of spots per time slot are limited.

Registration will close on Dec 20th.    We have designed the system such that kids can do both pitching and catching if they would like in the same night.   Each are $75 apiece.

Please see the flyers below for more information.

Any questions reach out to Rod Frost 

rodfrost96@gmail.com or 952-465-9096

NOTE::: The age you select is for the 2018 age group so if you played u11 baseball last year you would be selecting the u12 age group.

If after Dec 20th we still have spaces open we will open it up to older age groups.

2018 Bat Rule Changes

What Happened at the Bat Meeting?
2018 Bat Rule Decision: 
USA Baseball Regulated Bats

As promised, MBL/MBT conducted a meeting with the community Travel and Tournament Directors on 10/3/17 to get feedback, answer questions & address concerns in order to make the best decision regarding the bat rule & other issues. 

A vote was held with our community representatives in attendance and with an overwhelming response, the outcome of the meeting was to move forward with allowing ONLY USA Baseball regulated bats during the upcoming 2018 MBL/MBT seasons. For the -3 bats, you will be able to use both the BBCOR and USA stamped bats. 

These bats are hitting the market now and you can find a listing of approved bats and other FAQ's by clicking here: https://usabat.com/
