MPLL Baseball & Softball 
 

Baseball and Softball are a fun game as long as you play in a league with the correct speed and level of play. Simply put, it’s no fun if you are overmatched or not being challenged. With that in mind, MPLL offers a description of each of our levels of competition.  Please attempt to place your child in the level that best suites his or her skills. And please understand, unlike every other sport, baseball is based on age. Grade level should not be a consideration. In fact, many divisions will be comprised of three (some four) different grade levels.
