2015 Chaska Metro Teams
Logan Van Sant
If you did not make a metro team we still have a great opportunity for your boys to play ball! Please see below.
We are making improvements to the upper Chaska Baseball League (in-house) age group. Working in collaboration with neighboring communities we are piloting a Community League in the Southwest metro. Currently Chaska is working to collaborate with Chanhassen Athletic Association and Eden Prairie baseball. All three programs have declining numbers at this age group for numerous reasons. Small numbers make it difficult to create a League that is fair, balanced, and competitive without reaching outside of our own community.
The objective is to partner with local associations and similar ability players to create a positive baseball experience for players who aren’t participating in metro or tournament team baseball. The exact number of teams and communities is fluid at this time, but we have a team of motivated and dedicated leaders from each community who are committed to creating a positive experience for our older in-house athletes.
13s – The 13s will be paired with some 12 year old Chaska in-house players and will compete against the neighboring communities. You will need to register your player at ChaskaBaseball.com in Chaska Youth League. We have a head coach and several volunteers for assistant coaches. Your head coach will contact you soon and practices will start as soon as the city opens the fields.
14s – We have secured spots in collaboration with Chanhassen Athletic Association. You will be playing on a joint team with players of similar ability from Chanhassen and competing in the community league. Chanhassen Athletic Association will reopen registration for you to register. Jeffrey Sheehan (Chanhassen Athletic Association) is taking lead on facilitating registration. Eric Jax (Director of Chaska Youth League) will be your contact point person until you are placed on team. Practice will begin in early to mid April depending on field conditions. Contact info for Eric Jax is 651-592-8186, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Chaska Metro Baseball is for those individuals who exhibit a higher commitment to developing their Baseball skills while competing at a higher level. It requires greater commitment, in that each participant is expected to attend all practices and weekend tournaments. Players will practice 1-2 times per week and will have league games 2 times per week. Each team also plays in 4 state qualifier tournaments (with travel) attempting to earn a berth in 2 state tournaments. Parents are expected to be involved in fundraising and volunteering at various events. The goal of Chaska Metro Traveling Baseball is to develop skills, confidence, sportsmanship, teamwork and to have fun.
Chaska is a member of the Metro Baseball League and is offered in grades 4 through 8. Traveling Baseball brings more focus on competition and skill development. Metro teams are formed of our best players to compete with the best players from other communities in the area. Two to four teams will be formed per grade with an AAA-AA-A format with twelve players per team. Teams are formed according to age guidelines set by the Metro Baseball League (rules found at the following website…https://www.mbl.bz/mbl/mbl/rules/).
