The MYBA Skills Challenge is currently scheduled for June 29th from 6pm to 9pm. We will have HR hitting contest (5U to Prep), Fastest Runner (4U to Prep) and Farthest Thrower (4U to Prep). These events are only open to current MYBA players.
–For Home Run Contest only, will be limited to a maximum of 3 players per team. Last year everyone wanted to do it and it took till almost 10pm. Please figure out who has a shot at hitting it out or close to determine the 3 players. All other events are open to everyone.

As we are now into summer for the kids, please ensure you let Age Group Coordinator or League Scheduler if not going to have enough players for a league game. This needs to be done in advance and not the day of game.
I have gotten a few questions on this:
The City of Moore renumbered all the fields. Vice being numbered by age, they now are numbered 1-10. All fields have location in backstop but here is how they are now:
7U-Field 3 (may also play on field 5)
8U-Field 5 (may also play on field 3)
9U-Field 6 (may also play on field 8)
10U-Field 8 (may also play on field 6)
11U-Field 7 (may also play on field 9)
12U-Field 9 (may also play on field 7)
