ALL team page directions found in the Coaches Corner Tab.
Please double check your schedules through the end of Friday. During Fall Ball there will always be some drop outs, duplications and a possible omission. We can't contact each coach with every change.
*** Coaches: Please double check your schedules through Friday evening: This year we have 510 teams playing fall ball and occasionally a team is double scheduled, omitted or can't play and adjustments to schedules must be made. Check for your team number in other regions too. On any given weekend we will use over 30 locations and for competition purposes or if we have an odd number of teams at a level we will move to another region. ***It is your responsibility to check.*** If changes happen on Saturday we will make every attempt to contact you with changes as long as you update your team pages with your contact information.
COACHES, please enter your contact information on your team page. This is the only way for other teams to communicate with you. It will only take 1 minute to update.
This process will be used for Fall Ball ONLY.
Adding your roster:
Although this isn't your "official Roster" for Summer tournaments, this is how you enter game stats for your players. You have to enter players names to be able to enter stats.
For FALL Ball 2015 we will be using this format as your roster.
a. Click > "Roster" on grey menu bar.
b. Click > Add Player
c. Select Option to enter players information that works best for you. Do "by scratch" is probably the easiest.
d. Enter your players information (If you prefer you DO NOT have to enter last name or e-mail address etc.)
e. Click on "save player"
f. **For fall ball just print off roster and bring to the STATE Tournament.

General Fall Ball Questions including field usage
Registrations and Eligibility
Questions Regarding requests for NGIN access to ALL team pages and Scheduling
We will again be doing on-line registrations for your teams this Fall. You must have an NGIN account to register your team (see directions at bottom of page). Directors, if you do not have coaches assigned yet that’s fine. You can register the teams initially with out a coach and assign them later.
Schedules will be determined first by ability of the teams, then by location. When evaluating your team try to be as accurate as possible (not all teams in your associations are a 1 and not all are a 10) After the first week of play, results will be posted through the MMFL Fall page, on the team pages (that coaches are responsible for updating) and teams will advance to the second week site by record, 2-0 will advance to site A, 1-1 to site B, and 0-2 to site C, etc., for each week. After Week 3 the MMFL will post your next scheduled location for week 4 which is basically the qualifier by age group and record that helps us determine State Tiers. Based on week 4 results each age group will then be placed in the State tournament they qualified for and be posted on-line.
Fall League provides an opportunity for your players to learn about the game and gain experience-playing fastpitch. Because of fall weather conditions, all games are rain or shine decision to play is made at the fields by the 2 coaches and umpires in agreement, (please don't email or call) 1/2 hour delay if lightning is present, all games will be scheduled for 1 hour and 5 minutes- allowing for the last inning to be completed, and one inning of international tiebreaker if the game is tied. Free substitution and round robin batting is mandatory. 5 runs per inning rule during 3-week league play for 10U, 12U with 10U keeping the rule the entire season.
Each team plays two games each Sunday against different opponents. Game times are either 12:00 and 1:30 or 3:00 and 4:30. There may be occurrences your team is split between times if a location has an off number of teams or fields to use.
Player age eligibility is set by December 31, 2015 for Fall Ball.
