Frequently Answered Questions

I have a question, how can I get it answered?

For now, please click on the "Contacts" tab and send us your question that way. We'll build this page as we are answering frequently asked questions.

 

How are players assigned to teams? Why have some players been assigned to teams while others have not?

As we get coach volunteers, we start assigning players to that coach's team based on coach requests. Typically, the coach will send us a list of players they'd like on their team, usually neighborhood friends, and then parents of those children will request that coach when registering. This is typically how teams begin to be formed for Tee Ball, AA Rookie, and AAA Rookie. All players will be assigned teams, but some will have to wait until we find coaches for all of the teams. After coach requests, we start accommodating as many friend requests as possible, then we start assigning players to teams based on common schools. Again, this is for Tee Ball, AA Rookie, and AAA Rookie. Divisions have caps for amount of players allowed per team, and so not everyone will get on the team of their choice. For Minors and Majors, there are Team Formation Rules, published in the Documents folder online. Once a coach volunteers, teams begin to be formed. However, these divisions also incorporate a Skills Assessment and Draft. It's much tougher to accommodate friend requests in the upper divisions, but we do make an attempt. 

 

When does the season start and end?

Opening Day for the Fall 2020 Season will be August 22nd, and we will play as many games as we can until it gets cold and dark. Tournaments will start in early October.

 

What bat standard does Mueller Park Baseball use?

Cal Ripken requires the use of wood bats or bats with the USA Baseball stamp. No BBCOR bats are allowed in Cal Ripken. Babe Ruth (13-15) allows BBCOR .50 bats (2 5/8" Barrel), in addition to bats with the USA Baseball stamp. Babe Ruth (16-18) requires all bats to be wood or BBCOR .50, no greater than -3. However, for league games at Mueller Park, we do not regulate bat use at this time, and allow all bats to be used in games unless deemed dangerous or tampered with. For league games away from Mueller Park, you'll need to adhere to that league's bat use policy. For Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth tournament games, bat rules are strictly enforced.

 

How can I get involved/volunteer, but not as a coach?

We are always looking for new volunteers. Please reach out to the League President and/or another board member and let them know your interest. We could use some new board members.

 

What is the American League?

The American League is what we call our Recreational League. Anyone is welcome to sign-up and play in the American League. We have open divisions ranging from tee ball to 15U Babe Ruth, or from ages three to fifteen.

 

What is the National League?

The National League is what we call our Competitive League. This league is for pre-formed teams. Not everyone can play in the National League. Only teams approved to play can join, and players need approval from a coach before being placed on a team. Still, players and coaches need to register individually.

The American League teams do not play the National League teams during the season.

 

What if I want my player to play up a Division?

For some advanced 8-year olds, we will allow them to play up in the Minors Division. Same thing for some advanced 10-year olds, as we will allow them to play up in the Majors Division. Also, we will allow exceptions for grade level. If you're a young 3rd grader, you can play up in the Minors Division. If you're a young 5th grader, you can play up in the Majors Division. If you're a young 7th grader, you can play up in Babe Ruth. Registration is based on age, and not grade. So if you'd like to play up a Division, send Scott Hallows (found on "Contacts" tab) an email with an explanation on why you'd like your player to play up. Do not register for the division you do not want to play in without making sure we know you'd like to be moved. We'll get you in the right division if you contact us.
