Madeira Beach Youth Baseball and Softball

Travel Baseball & Softball Option

 

Our league has grown in numbers and quality over the years.  Our mission is to develop players of all skill levels in the hopes for creating better players on the field while seeking to implant in the youth of the community ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage, and reverence, so they may be finer, stronger, and happier youth who will grow to be good, clean, healthy adults.

 

Our league has acheived a tremendous amount of success developing players.  With this success we have had the opportunity to give our players at a higher skill level the chance to play “Travel” Baseball and Softball.  Both our “Regular Season” and “Travel” programs have achieved great success over the years.  That being said, our Travel program CAN NOT exist without the strength and success of our Babe Ruth Softball / Cal Ripken Baseball Spring & Fall seasons here at Madeira Beach.

 

Below will describe our framework for our “Regular Season” and “Travel Ball” Options:

    (This covers all age groups other than TBall, 6u Coach Pitch, and 8u Baseball/Softball.)

 

  1. Spring Season - All players must be rostered on a Madeira Beach Cal Ripken / Babe Ruth Softball team to be eligible to participate on one of our “Travel” teams.  All players will practice and play scheduled games as normal for their “Regular Season Spring Team”.  Those who make their Spring Madeira Beach “Travel Team”, understand and agree that their “Travel Team” is in addition to their “Regular Season” Team and will not interfere with their Madeira Beach Cal Ripken / Babe Ruth Softball Spring Team.

 

  1. Fall Season -  All players must be rostered on a Madeira Beach Cal Ripken / Babe Ruth Softball team to be eligible to participate on one of our “Travel” teams.  But, unlike the Spring season, the “Travel players will be treated as guest / alternate players for the Fall “Regular Season”.  Travel players will not be required to practice with their Fall “Regular Season” teams, knowing that they will be practicing with their “Travel Teams” on a regular basis.  “Travel Players” will be encouraged to play as many games as possible with their Fall Madeira Beach Cal Ripken / Babe Ruth Softball, especially on weekdays.

 

For all that are playing at Madeira Beach and those looking to play at Madeia Beach, please understand that we are NOT a “Travel Ball” organization.  Madeira Beach Youth Baseball & Softball will always look to develop players of all skill levels while giving those of a higher skill level an opportunity to play Travel Tournaments or Advanced Baseball.
