Irondale Youth Baseball

IBL (Irondale Baseball League) offers baseball for youth living in the 621 Mounds View Public Schools District. The IBL and its volunteers annually offer a quality baseball experience to hundreds of youth in our communities, specifically in New Brighton and Mounds View, but also in some parts of Arden Hills, Shoreview, St. Anthony, Roseville, and Fridley.

Our goal is to provide a positive baseball learning experience, especially for players, volunteer coaches and umpires, as well as for families and spectators. 

The IBL offers instructional baseball and traveling baseball programs in a competitive environment. Teamwork, sportsmanship, playing hard, giving your best, and having fun are emphasized.
