Willie Mays League is a competitive “Player Pitch” league focused on intermediate baseball “team” fundamentals.  Willie Mays League is for boys and girls ages 9 & 10.


All games/practices will be held on our surrounding St. Michael/Albertville Baseball Fields.


All players at this level are required to try-out even if they do not plan to play travel baseball.  This allows the league to evenly distribute the talent based on their individual try-out score. Teams are formed using the try-out score OR picked at random by In House Vice President if no score is available.  Teams will be made up of 10 to 13 players per team.  There is no buddy request at this level.


STMA Youth baseball will provide a Hat, Jersey, Pants, and Bats.  Players are to provide their own Helmet, Glove and Cleats.

Practice/Game Nights

Willie Mays will meet Monday/Wednesday/Sunday at 6:15 pm.  Coaches are to hold a minimum of 1 hour for practice, but can extend practice time at their discretion.  League games are 6 innings, or 2 hour time limit.  Parents are strongly encouraged to stay at the field during Baseball activities
