Fall Baseball at Murphey Candler is a weekend activity, with all events taking place at Murphey Candler Park. Teams practice on Saturdays and play games on Sunday afternoons. The practice and game times will vary from week to week. Our Southern league (5 years old) is scheduled as a Sunday only league, however, it may become necessary to schedule make up events on some Saturdays. The fall program is a great chance for players to keep their skills sharp, try new positions, and familiarize themselves with new league rules without the pressure of league standings and championships. It is particularly beneficial for rising nine year old players expecting to play at the AA level in the spring, as it provides them with a great opportunity to be exposed to their first year of ‘kid pitch’, prior to the upcoming spring season.
Challenger League and Rookie League are not active in the fall.
Practices will start in mid August, games start in late August and the season is over at the end of October. The schedule typically includes 9 – 10 games.
League Age for Fall Baseball is based on each player’s age for the upcoming Spring Season (your player’s age as of April 30, 2019). Leagues are formed for players of league ages 5 through 12. There is no Rookie Ball league in the fall program.
Because not all parks in our District maintain a Fall Baseball program, it is common for players outside our boundaries to participate in Fall Baseball at Murphey Candler.
