Final Week of Fall Registration

This is the final week of Myers Park Trinity Fall Ball registration. Go to and sign up before it's too late. Registration closes August 19th.

The fall season runs from late August through late October. It's an instructional program, with the main emphasis placed on teaching fundamentals. As discussed on this blog before, Fall Ball is a relaxed, fun season with no standings or tournaments. If you need more convincing, here you go.

Baseball and Girls Softball are available at MPTLL this fall. Click here for information on the various divisions of play. This year there will be new and improved 11-12-year-old and 9-10-year-old player pitch divisions, allowing those kids to play among their own age groups. This should create a more advanced league for older players and a better learning environment for younger ones.

Sign up online today.

Myers Park 14's Southeast Regional Update

The Myers Park 14-year-old All-Stars are preparing for their fourth day at the Southeast Babe Ruth Regional Tournament in Northern Virginia. The team lost game one on Thursday 11-1 to a good San Jose, FL team, but came back to beat Manassas, VA 5-4 on Saturday to stay alive in this double-elimination tournament. Caston Rudisill pitched a complete game for MP and Tom Hay Coggins delivered a clutch 2-RBI single.

Myers Park plays South Carolina today in another elimination game at 11:00 a.m. You can tune in and follow all the action on the Myers Park Twitter page. The updated bracket is here.

UPDATE:  MP beat South Carolina 5-2 on Sunday, but lost to Alabama 12-2 on Monday morning. It was a great run by this team. The league is proud.
