The Eagan Baseball Association and the Eagan Athletic Association are pleased to welcome United Heroes League to our fields on June 22. United Heroes League (UHL) is a national organization whose mission is to keep kids of active military personnel healthy and active through sports by providing new and used equipment, grants for association fees, camps, and more.
Representatives from Minnesota’s chapter of United Heroes League will have a collection site at Lexington-Diffley fields to collect used sports equipment. If you have sports gear in good condition that your family has outgrown or is no longer using, be sure to bring it to the UHL booth on Saturday, June 22 at the Lexington-Diffley Fields Pavilion. (Please, no specific uniforms or equipment that’s not in playable condition.)
Come out to learn more about how the Eagan Baseball Community and EAA can support United Heroes League and their worthy mission.
Thanks to all who came out to support EBA and make the evening a success!
We even had had a guest visitor stop by! Twins Alumni Juan Berenguer came out!
It was was a fun night and we raised a lot of money for EBA!
Volunteer signups are NOW OPEN! Below you will find the links for all three tournaments as well as Youth and Alumni day. As a reminder, all families must complete 8 hours of volunteer time per player, with a cap of 16 hours per family.
Eagan Travel Baseball is looking for a Concession Director Successor. Over the past 2 years we have put together an outline of the process to improve efficiency and reduce the amount of time needed to organize volunteers and concessions for our tournaments. We are willing to work with the successor this season and next season. Ideally we have a point person to organize, but could expand to be 2-3 persons when it comes to tournament play coverage. If you are interested, please contact Tamara Langeberg at email@example.com.
We are also looking for concession ideas. If you have any burning ideas, please contact Tamara Langeberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are the links!

Since 2018, all 12U teams have been attending out-of-state tournaments as part of their baseball season.
Beginning for 2020 teams, 12U travel teams will be formed through a fall (2019) tryout, in order to facilitate planning and fundraising for all 12U teams.
Therefore, 11U teams for 2019 are not guaranteed to be part of any particular out-of-state travel team for 2020, until fall tryouts for this age group are complete.
Thanks to generous fundraising and sponsorship, as well as support from the City of Eagan, the EBA has been able to begin construction on dugouts for two DHMS Fields! Pictures to come soon- drive by and check out the progress!!
Eagan Baseball offers two programs: In-House and Travel.
In-house baseball is available to players from Pre-K through their senior year in high school. Some older ages will travel to surrounding communities for games, but most play for in-house will be in Eagan. See registration tab for more information on in-house schedules. In-house is a less competitive, less time intense option for players who enjoy baseball but do not want to commit to a travel schedule.
The Traveling Baseball program provides intensive skill development and a high level of competition. The program offers opportunities to develop confidence and teamwork while competing with teams representing other area communities.
Eagan Baseball follows the EAA Scholarship process. Please see the documents below for EAA scholarship information and the EAA scholarship application.
If a family does not meet the EAA scholarship requirements yet still is in need of a hardship scholarship, please submit the completed scholarship application form with an explanation of hardship needs and your application will be reviewed.
If you plan to be a coach or assistant coach for EBA during the 2018 season, you must be current in your Concussion Awareness Training. Minnesota state law requires all youth sport coaches to complete Concussion Awareness Training at least once every 3 years.
If your training is current, be sure to have your certificate with you at all times in the dugout. If you have never completed the training or need to update, you can follow this link to complete the CDC's online training module. The training only takes 30-40 minutes and can be completed at your convenience. Please be sure to print and save your Certificate of Completion.
