Due to COVID-19 and the Stay at Home order placed in Minnesota in March, April and May, we have had to reassign players to different teams. The changes that were made were not based on a player's ability or skill level, but by looking at birth dates and team sizes.
IGHBA is proud to announce this year's 2020 association baseball teams. We're looking forward to a fun and exciting baseball season.
REMINDER: The mandatory parent meeting will be held on March 15 at VMCC at 6:30 pm. One parent from each player must attend this meeting. Players are also welcome to attend the meeting as coaches will have a short time at the end of the meeting to address their team.
There are a few items each player/parent will need to complete and bring to the meeting:
- Each player must turn in a COPY of their birth certificate
- Each player/family must turn in the $250 volunteer check
- Each player/parent must turn in a signed Code of Conduct form (below)
- $10 concession stand contribution
- Any unpaid uniform orders
- Shed waiver if not turned in (below)
No players will be allowed to participate in any practices or games until the above items are completed and turned in. Please come to the meeting prepared, as this will make things move along in a timely fashion.
Player evaluations for the 2020 season will take place on February 22, 2020 at Walker Fieldhouse on the campus of Hamline University in St. Paul, MN.
Hamline University baseball staff and players will conduct a 15-30 minute warm-up and skill prep with each age group prior to the players going through their evaluations. The prep will consist of getting players familiar with drills used for evaluations to get them as prepared as possible for each evaluation drill. The players will then proceed through the evaluation process and be graded by Hamline baseball staff and players. It is IGHBA policy to have CLOSED evaluations. No parents will be allowed in the evaluation area at any time.
Each player is required to attend the entire scheduled time of their age group to ensure proper team . Please arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of your age group in order to allow time for check-in with IGHBA staff.
Scheduled age group times are as follows:
13 – 15 year olds: 10:45am -12:30 pm
11 –12 year olds: 12:45 pm - 2:30 pm
9 – 10 year olds: 2:45 pm - 4:30 pm
Age groups are determined by what division the player will play in the 2020 season. It is strongly encouraged to make every effort for the player to attend the evaluations with their proper age group.
UNIFORM SIZING: We will be conducting a uniform sizing and ordering session during the evaluations on February 22. This will be the last chance before the season begins.

Attention all IGHBA members. Anyone needing to order the complete uniform package or any individual pieces will need to have their order and payment turned into IGHBA staff on or before Feb. 24th.
