THE FIRST ANNUAL EBA GOLF OUTING WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!

Thank you all who participated in our 1 st Annual Eagan Baseball Golf Tournament. Your commitment to making Eagan Baseball a top tier program will go a long way in the upcoming season.


Additionally, the association, families and kids would like to thank Mendakota Country Club for providing a best in class facility and our sponsors who donated their time and treasure to make this event a homerun. It is our hope that this experience and camaraderie can be duplicated in 2022 with even more local sponsors joining the cause.

We ask that when making decisions in your daily lives that you consider giving these sponsors your consideration and support. 


Thank you again for a great experience and we look forward to building upon this success next year.

Sincerely,
Eagan Baseball Association

Golf Sponsors: Twin City Fire, Urban Escapes, High Ball Energy, Cooper's, Brent Wilcox realty, Jen Conoryea State Farm Insurance, Eagan Smiles Dentistry, Home Federal, Keurig Dr. Pepper, and Eagan Football.  

New Bat Rules for 2022 Season

12-13 year olds - Maximum diameter at the thickest part:  2 1/4" or less with UNLIMITED weight differential and a USSSA or USA mark and meet Bat Performance Standards.


12-13 year olds - Maximum diameter at the thickest part: 2 1/2", 2 5/8”, or 2 3/4” barrel with minus 10 weight differential and a USSSA or USA mark and meet Bat Performance Standards.

    About the Eagan Baseball Association

    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.

    Concussion Awareness Training for All EBA Coaches

    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.
