Our in-house season begins the last Saturday in April and concludes at the end of June. Practices starts start the beginning of April. Highlights of our season include an Opening Day Parade, the Little League Day at Camden Yards where players and coaches parade around the warning track prior to the start of an O's game, end of the year picnic and All Star games for the 6-8, 8-10, 11-12 and 13-14 leagues.

Our younger age groups (ages 4-8) play a season of non-competitive baseball that focuses on teaching the fundamentals of baseball including basic baseball skills, rules and strategies along with good sportsmanship, appropriate behavior and attitude.

Our older age groups (ages 8-14) play a season of competitive baseball that builds on what is taught at the younger level while preparing them for a season ending playoff tournament.

The Manchester Baseball Association has set goals and during the year will try to teach the children the importance of sportsmanship, friendship, respect for the referee and the opposite team as well as their own team members.

Our goals are to:

  • Our mission is to provide recreational baseball to the North Carroll area kids. The program facilitates kids from ages 4-18 providing a safe and learning environment in the game of baseball.
  • It is our mission to keep the spirit of the game an active tradition. We pursue the continued support through volunteers and value the communities support and contributions.
  • We honor all levels of play and offer advancement when age appropriate to further the desire to play at a more competitive level.
  • As a member of the North Carroll recreation council it is our mission to continue in good faith with the by-laws of such council. We stand for fairness, fundamentals and merriment.

All teams in the 4-5 & 6-8 year-old leagues are formed by the age group commissioner. Every attempt is made to honor special requests made on your registration form but cannot be guaranteed.

All teams in 8-10, 11-12 and 13-14 leagues are formed during a draft in mid-March. Special requests cannot be honored in these age groups due to the nature of the team formations.


This year will again be selling raffle tickets and requiring each child to sell 6 raffle tickets at $5.00 a ticket. You will be required to pay the $30.00 with your registration. Our main league fundraiser will begin with your child’s first practice. If you are registering three or more children in the in-house program you will only be responsible for buying raffle tickets for the first two children.


After our Opening Day ceremony (April 28, 2018) we will hold our 3rd annual HIT-A-THON sponsored by 99Pledges and our local TOFF (Tree of Friends Foundation) Group. The HIT-A-THON will be open to boys and girls ages 4 and up. For a child to participate in the Hit-A-Thon they must get pledges. For more information on the Hit-A-Thon, see the Hit-A-Thon flyer on the website.
