Connie Mack Evaluations 2018 Season
by posted 01/21/2018

MTBSA Connie Mack (CM) Parents/Players,


     Good afternoon, it’s that time of year again, time for Spring/Summer baseball.  On behalf of myself, (Connie Mack commissioner) and MTBSA Baseball, we’d like to advise you of our upcoming CM evaluations.  If you are a returning player, welcome back. For those of you new to Connie Mack, this is the next step in your child’s baseball path.  The number and composition of our teams is directly related to our registration numbers.   My goal is to have selected our teams NLT Friday April 13th.

     As usual, we will be looking for coaches for these teams as well as evaluators for our workouts.  If we have coaches prior to evaluations it helps enormously in player placement and ensuring we have the correct mix. If you are interested in volunteering, please let myself or Mike Simpson (baseball@mtbsa.org) know.  Lastly, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call me @ (267) 250-2571 cell.

Evaluations will be for all players aged 13 to 16.  All our tryouts this year will be outdoors:

Saturday, 24 March Windlestrae Field #2 (WS #2) (time to be announced)

Sunday, 25 March WS #2 (TBA)

Saturday, 07 April WS #2 (TBA)

Sunday, 08 April WS #2 (TBA)

Back-up dates:  Saturday/Sunday 14/15 April.

Please arrive 15 minutes early for check-in.

12u Travel Beef & Beer January 27, 2018
by posted 01/04/2018


Saturday January 27, 2018 7:00pm 

The parents of the U-12 Boys A-Level Travel baseball team, from the Montgomery Township Baseball and Softball Association (MTBSA) are looking for help to defray the costs to send the team to a week-long baseball tournament in Cooperstown, NY in July 2018. The boys will be playing against teams from all around the United States and staying in dorms with all the teams. The cost to participate is over $1,000.00 for each player. That amount includes lodging, uniforms, food and fees for the tournament. Our goal for the fundraising is to help offset the costs for each family to send their player to experience a once in a lifetime tournament in the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame. 


Please join us for a Beef & Beer night at the Ukrainian Nationals Soccer Club in North Wales, PA on Saturday January 27, 2018 ($30 / ticket or $50 / couple).

(Ticket price includes dinner, choice of 3 draft beers, cash bar for liquor and wine, and a DJ)

There will be silent auctions, raffle items and a 50/50 raffle at the Beef & Beer

If you are interested in purchasing tickets please contact Sal Astolfi at astolfis@msn.com or (215) 764-2154

New 2018 USA Baseball Bat Regulations
by posted 09/01/2017


In the Spring we advised our members about the new bat regulations starting 1/1/2018.  As of January 1, 2018 all youth baseball leagues are requiring players to use bats with the USA baseball stamp.  Below is a link from Dick's explaining the new standard in more detail.  




This change applies to baseball only.  It does not affect softball.  

What this means for our MTBSA families is:

A. All MTBSA baseball players up to and including the Connie Mack division must use a bat with the new USA Baseball label on it.  Bats following the USABat standard are available for sale as of September 1, 2017.  To identify officially-sanctioned youth bats, look for the "USA Baseball" licensing mark, located on the taper. 


B. Regarding T-ball players, the USA Baseball Tee Ball Sticker Program is an initiative designed to allow for the continued use of T-ball bats that were manufactured prior to the implementation of the new USABat standard. This program will allow individuals and families to purchase approved stickers marked with the USA Baseball logo and language which reads: ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS. Stickers will be available for purchase online via USABaseballShop.com beginning September 1, 2017. 


The bats that were used this past year will not be allowed to be used after 1/1/2018 (with the exception of T-ball which will require the new sticker)  

This is a great time to take advantage of the 20% coupon for Dick's on September 16 to purchase a new bat (and maybe tuck it away for Santa to give).


There are several websites online if you want to research this more.  Below is a great link or you can Google new USA bat standard 2018.
