In Spring 2015, MALL changed the divisions being offered in order to better develop kids for kid-pitch baseball.   We have eliminated the Senior Machine Pitch division which was previously geared toward 8 year olds.  We are now offering an entry level kid-pitch division (Minor American) for 8 & 9 year olds.  The division is supplemented with a limited amount of coach pitching.  Separately, we will have a mid-level kid-pitch division (Minor National) for 10 & 11 year olds.   As such, 9 year olds will not be facing 11 year old pitchers as part of their first kid pitch baseball experience.    

We will allow kids to play up-or-down a division based upon their skill assessments (see below).  For example, 9 year olds are slotted to the Minor American division, but may be allowed in the Minor National division if they assess high enough that the division commissioner approves it.  Older players may be allowed to “play down” a division under a similar scenario.  This is reflected parenthetically in the above age groups. Please use the "Special Requests" section of the on-line registration if you want your child to play in a division other than the ones for which he has been slotted. 

  • (a) The Machine Pitch division is mainly for League Age* 7-8 year olds, but is also available to League Age* 6 or 9 year olds that want to play in the division.   This division is considered “instructional”, so wins/losses and standings are not tracked by the league.  There will be a competitive single-elimination tournament at the end of the season. 
  • (b) There is a $10 early registration discount through 1/1/2016.  There is a $10 discount for each additional sibling registered. 
  • (c) League Age computation: For birth year 2006 and thereafter, league age is computed as the child's age as of 8/31/2015.  For birth year 2005 and earlier, league age is computed as the child's age as of 4/30/2015.

Teams will be formed in the instructional T-Ball and Machine Pitch divisions based upon friend requests, coach requests, common schools and neighborhoods.  Teams will be formed in all competitive (kid pitch) leagues based on skill assessments and a draft by the team managers. 


We are offering walk-up registration at the following dates/times/locations:

  • Friday, February 5 from 6:30PM-8:00PM at Sweet Mesquite, 1570 S Dairy Ashford Rd B1, Houston, TX 77077
  • Saturday, February 6 from 11AM-1PM at Sweet Mesquite, 1570 S Dairy Ashford Rd B1, Houston, TX 77077

Skill Assessments for Competitive Divisions are scheduled as follows (on Field 2):


  • Intermediates: Monday, February 8 at 6:30PM
  • Minor National: Tuesday, February 9 at 6:30PM
  • Minor American: Wednesday, February 10 at 6:30PM
  • General (for those unable to make their day): Saturday, February 13 at 9:30AM
  • (Thursday, February 11 is a possible rain date)

MALL requires all players in a kid pitch division to participate in skill assessments. Player baseball skills will be evaluated by team managers and league representatives in order to be placed in the proper division and subsequently drafted by a team. 

If you cannot show up on your assigned date, please plan to attend the "General" assessment on Saturday, February 13.  As a last resort, please attend any ONE of the dates if none of the others will work.  Assessments should take approximately 90 minutes.  We may revise the schedule based on the weather forecast as the week approaches.  Any schedule changes will be emailed and posted on the www.MALLBall.org home page.  

Players should bring a baseball glove, batting helmet, bat, and cleats to their assessment.
