2023 Spring League Update

2023 coach's registration

As an all-volunteer program, MSHYB depends on parent participation for the success of the league. We encourage parents of all MSHYB players to volunteer as a coach for their child's team, regardless of baseball experience. All new and returning coaches must go through an annual registration and certification process. Please click here or on the "Coach's Registration" tab on this page for details about becoming a certified coach and to register.


Wait list now open

While the regular registration deadline has passed for the 2023 MSHYB spring youth league, you may sign up your child to join the wait list. While we can't guarantee that enough spots will be become available for all wait list players, we will do our best to accommodate everyone.

If you missed the registration deadline but are interested in signing up your child, please click here to join the wait list. 


Current Status and What Comes Next - A Tentative Schedule

We are actively preparing for the season.  Here is a general schedule whose details we will provide in the coming weeks:

End of March through first week of April:  Fields and batting cages open up, weather permitting, for team practices.

First week of April: Millburn school district Spring Break 

April 10:  Opening Day

June 10:  Championships, Family Day, End of the Spring Season

NOTE: A preliminary schedule has been uploaded and is in the process of being checked.  We will let you know when it is final.


Equipment requirement and league discount

To help your child get the right equipment for both safety and performance reasons see below list of resources including a discount we have obtained.

Helmet:  All helmets must have a caged face mask.  See the following link for what that should look like.  C-Flaps or anything lesser will not be permitted.

Bat:  All bats must have a USA Baseball stamp on it.  Wooden bats are allowed but not recommended for this league for performance reasons.  For size and weight considerations, click on this resource.

Glove:  Your child should get a glove sooner than later if he or she does not have one.  They should try to break it in well before the season starts to allow them to properly catch the ball.

Batting gloves:  Not required but recommended.  These can help minimize the sting when a ball is not hit well.

Shoes:  Since all games will be played outdoors at Gero Park, molded cleats are recommended.  Metal cleats will not be permitted.

Uniforms: A team shirt and hat will be provided by the league.  Baseball pants, belts, and other accessories will be recommended by your team or chain manager.

Umpires Needed

Our Spring Youth League will once again need student umpires.  Click on this link to sign up.


All interested in umpiring must be at least 14. If you are turning 14 during the season, you can come to one of the below sessions but cannot umpire until your birthday.

Note: You will need working papers. Click here for the proper forms.

Training sessions location, dates, and times TBD so stay tuned.

Requirements for Attending Training

If you are 14 or 15, or have umpired fewer than 2 consecutive years, or have never attended one of our training sessions before, you must come to and stay for at least one entire session.

If you are 16 and have umped for at least 2 consecutive years, you must attend at least one session but can leave after opening remarks and key info such as text messages for rainouts and other administrative items.
