American Legion Junior Red Important Message

American Legion baseball imposes a strict 18 man roster rule for their summer programs because all players are covered under their insurance up to 18.   If at any time more than 18 players sign up for a team, there needs to be a tryout.

Junior Red's are in the category this year, as we have a high number of athletes that are signed up.   Because of this, we will be hosting a try out next week, Monday (May 23) and Wednesday (May 25) night, at 6:00 p.m. at Knute Nelson Field.  I have spoken with their 9th grade coaches and they will not practice for HS those days, instead, just go to the try out.
 
Assistant varsity coach Greg Toivonen and Head Junior Red coach Steve Radtke will be conducting the try out.    Coach Toivonen and Coach Radtke have the right to talk with 9th grade coaches or ask questions about player performance during HS season.  This would only help have a better understanding of all players over a longer period of time. 

It is important to note that we evaluate all of our rosters to try to make room for all players.   With high numbers across all teams we simply have no choice this year as all are at or above the max of 18 players.  This is the first time we have had to host a tryout in the last 8 years.
 
If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out to me.

Thanks,
Jake Munsch

Important Annoucement!

Welcome to the new Alexandria Youth Baseball Association website. It is our hope that the information on here helps you to locate and answer all of the questions you have for youth baseball in Alexandria.  
Last year a conversation began concentrating on the ways in which we could make communication better for our families. In a joint effort from all avenues of youth baseball in Alexandria, we began a planning process to have everything youth baseball under one roof. Below are some of the key concepts we wish to achieve: 

  •  Better communication to all baseball families and the community (use of one website).
  • Streamline programming (online registrations, program information).
  • Promote the Alexandria baseball philosophy and strategies through all levels (player camps, coaches clinics, baseball discussions).
  • Coordinate fundraising efforts.
  • Work cooperatively to enhance all baseball facilities.

We are excited about this process and the opportunities that lie ahead.   This is just the first step in a broad vision we have for the future of Alexandria baseball. 

The merger of AABA and AYBA will be effective January 1st, 2021, at which time we will have one baseball organization utilizing the Alexandria Youth Baseball Association (AYBA) name. Going forward, all communications will come from Alexandria Youth Baseball Association and the website https://www.alexyouthbaseball.com will be used for all information and registrations. The website will continue to evolve throughout the transition, so check back often for updates!

Like always, if you have questions feel free to reach out at any time.

Shaynen Schmidt - AABA President
