The IBL (Irondale Baseball League) welcomes you to our 62nd season of baseball for youth living in the 621 School District. The IBL and its volunteers annually offer a quality baseball experience to hundreds of youth in our communities. 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 an instructional program in a competitive environment. Teamwork, sportsmanship, playing hard, giving your best, and having fun are emphasized.
The Tryouts will be held on Oct. 10 outside at the High School. If we have bad weather the make-up dates would be Oct. 11 or Oct. 17. The registration will close on 10/8/2020. The cost for tryouts will again be $25.
Tryouts will be for 9U-14U in the fall. Due to the fact that the High School season has been pushed back and will be starting in Mid May and will end July 14 we will hold an additional tryout for 15U in the Spring. We are unsure what the 15U season with GSBL will look like based on the dates of the High School season. When we have more information on that we will communicate that to the 15U families.
In order to be considered for a Traveling Team you must be registered for tryouts. When teams are announced we will open up a registration for the traveling teams and you must accept your placement by registering within a time period (Time Period TBD - more communication on this as tryouts approach).
If you are 13 or older and would like to make some cash this summer we will train you to umpire.
IBL is providing training through an MYAS umpire clinic this year. The clinic takes place on Saturday April 18th from 9:00 - 11:30am at Fridley High School. The clinic is at NO cost to you and will be paid for by IBL.
This clinic is designed for NEW umpires without any experience or formal training, therefore, if your child has attended this clinic previously IBL will not cover the cost if they wish to attend again.
Please respond ASAP so I can get numbers for registration.
