The mission of the Minnesota Baseball Association Board is to govern, inform, and promote amateur baseball in the state of Minnesota. By providing rules, materials, and information, the MBA Board hopes to increase awareness and participation throughout the state.
The board is made up of 9 elected members from across the state. The 3 officers and 6 members each serve a three year term, with election of one third of the members occurring every year. At the annual October board meeting, association members vote for new board members. There are 53 leagues each with league officers, 4 Class A Commissioners, 8 Class B Commissioners and 16 Class C Commissioners. These officers and commissioners make up the voting population.
Board member responsibilities include serving on specific committees, reinforcing administrative rules and regulations, conducting site inspections, upholding league integrity, rules review and more. In general, members are baseball enthusiasts who love the game and want to ensure fair play and a high-level of integrity in Minnesota amateur baseball.
Board meetings are held monthly (with the exception of February and December). If you have any suggestions, questions, or topics of interest for the board, please email them to one of the MBA officers (see Contact Us page).
Thank you for supporting Minnesota baseball!
