Eagan Travel Baseball Parents-
A few reminders about the upcoming weeks of baseball…
Please read the attached guidelines about player and spectator expectations for games. These are set forth by the Metro Baseball League and need to be followed. Some associations may have additional rules (e.g., masks, number of spectators allowed) and we are required to follow the rules of our host associations or cities when playing away games. Coaches and team managers will work to determine any additional requirements that may be at away games.
At this point, the city of Eagan and EBA have not put restrictions on the number pf spectators per player at games. However, please use discretion when inviting additional spectators to games. Additional limits regarding spectators may be required if this becomes problematic.
As a reminder, the code of conduct states that all families and players will adhere to the COVID-19 rules and could be removed from Eagan baseball if these are not followed.

TEAM NAME: EAGAN BASEBALL
Our Eagan Baseball family suffered the tragic loss of our friend and teammate, Patric Vitek. Patric was a member of our 2019 Cooperstown team and was heavily involved in sports year-round in EAA. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
The 700+ member families of Eagan Baseball Association, as well as the EHS Wildcats Baseball families stand ready to support the Vitek family however we can. We ask that you please keep Patric’s parents, Brian and Cheryl Vitek, their younger son Jack, and all of his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
The Eagan Baseball Association is looking for individuals interested in joining the board for the 2020 season for the following position:
Community Builder: Run social media, our United Heroes League relationship and Youth and Alumni Day in the Spring. Fun role with great potential.

Pictures to come soon- drive by and check out the progress!! Thanks to Dave Young, EBA Facilities Director and all the parents who helped with Construction!
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.
