Welcome to the The Manalapan Baseball and Softball Assoc
THE MANALAPAN BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION
We are currently celebrating our 50th anniversary of bringing the great games of baseball and softball to the youth of Manalapan and Englishtown! Every year we have approximately 1000 players swinging bats, throwing & catching balls, making new friends, seeing old friends and keeping Legion Field and The Manalapan Rec filled with our neighbors enjoying our national pastime. We are proud of the tradition MBSA continues each year and will work hard to make sure it endures well into the future for our neighborhoods. MBSA is working extremely hard to continue bringing our town the very best youth baseball and softball experience possiblPe and have some very exciting things in store for the coming year.

The 2017 Manalapan Braves Tryouts will be held on October 15th & 16th. At the time of tryouts there will be a $350 deposit that will be applied to your registration fee.
No travel apparel to be worn at the tryouts. Braves helmet is ok if that is the only one they have.
Please be on time and have all paperwork filled out and check payable to: MBSA ($350).
No parents will be allowed to stay at tryouts. The only exception will be the 7 years olds.
Teams will be announced 2 weeks after the Fall USABL season ends
Note: Last season and going forward, the 11 year old tryouts will be the Cooperstown team tryouts. Which means that each team will have 3 seasons being together to practice for Cooperstown and fundraise enough money for additional expenses which will include: coaches, pins, bats, team dinner, umpires and anything else needed that would make these players have the very best experience as possible so this will last a life time.
Congratulations to the 12U Red Manalapan Belles - 2016 All Shore Champions!!!!

Parents and volunteers must submit the Work Bond Reimbursement Form after completion of a volunteer activity. The submission of this form will notify MBSA that you have logged volunteer hours and will begin the reimbursement process for your work bond. If you do not submit this form after logging your volunteer hours, it may delay the process to refund your work bond.
The MBSA is committed to the notion that all children in our community should have the opportunity to play baseball or softball regardless of one's personal financial situation.
If you feel your financial situation might be impeding your child's ability to participate, you might qualify for assistance with your registration fees. To find out, please contact the MBSA player agent, Walter Karczewski.

Assistance is only available for the rec program. Travel programs are funded by the teams, not MBSA and are thus not eligible.
