Spring 2016 Ends with All-Stars and Mira Mesa’s 4th of July Parade

The Spring 2016 season came to an end on July 3rd after a hard fought game that eventually came to a loss for Mira Mesa’s 10U team.

Both 8U and 10U showed noticeable improvement over their performances last season and we’re excited to see how the entire league will continue to grow and develop through the coming year.

We finished off our spring festivities with a day at beach:

as well as participating in Mira Mesa’s Annual 4th of July Parade in a caravan of trucks where players from MMGS waved to the passing crowds and recited rallying cheers:

Thanks to everyone for a great Spring 2016!!! We hope to see you in the Fall!!!

Tryouts for 18U Mira Mesa Maniacs on 06/11/16

Players selected will begin practicing together as a team in preparation for the Fall 2016 season of the highly competitive GFL that is set to begin after Labor Day in September.

Coach Art is an excellent coach that teach the girls quite a bit from his years of baseball/softball knowledge. Spread the word! Residence is not a factor. If you make the team and you can get to the field… you can play!

We hope to see you there!

In Review: Team Dinner and Window Painting Evening 06/2/16

So far, two tournaments in to all-stars, both our 8U and 10U teams are playing .500 ball. That’s above average under normal circumstances, but it doesn’t win tournaments. It’s okay though… we are proud of our girls!!!

This evening we adjourned practice with a pizza dinner for all players and their families. We also rallied in the parking lot and painted our windows in preparation of the upcoming Surf City Classic Softball Tournament in Huntington Beach this weekend.

GO MIRA MESA!!!

MMGSoftball Fundraiser at Legacy on 05/19/16

MMGSoftball family,

Once again, we would like to acknowledge and congratulate our entire league on an amazing season. We acknowledge everyone’s outstanding efforts and accomplishments and look forward to how we can best represent, promote, and grow our family.

Part of that comes with post-season all-star play. Our coaches and managers have gone through the difficult process and done their best to assemble a group of girls to help represent us. While we would love to include everyone, both budgets and rules put a limit on us.

However our team doesn’t only exist on the field, MMGSoftball is tight-knit family. We live in the community. We hope that you will join us in celebrating and supporting our all-star teams at a fundraiser on Thursday May 19, 2016 at Legacy Brewing Tap & Kitchen from 6:00pm-9:00pm.

2016 All-Stars Tryouts & Selections

MMGSoftball:

Tryouts for all-stars are this week.

If your child is interested, please have your child arrive at the specified time on their designated evaluation day. Make sure they wear athletic practice apparel, NO JEANS OR SHORTS. In addition, players must have their helmets, gloves and bats with them. If they play catcher and have their own gear, please have them bring it as well or a set will be available if needed.

We hope to keep the evaluations quick and smooth so please be on time to ensure this can happen. Check-in for tryouts is at 4:30pm with tryouts running from 5pm-7pm at Hourglass Park, Field 5. Each division’s tryouts are on the following dates:

  • 8U: Mon. 05/02/16
  • 10U: Tues. 05/03/16

Players will be evaluated on the following:

  • Overall performance observed throughout the Spring 2016 season
  • Evaluation performance
  • Commitment per the application (if any dates of absence are noted)

Please note that with several players trying out for a limited number of positions, our managers and coaches have very tough decisions on their plates. Not everyone can make it. Make sure to talk with your children and ensure them that if they are not selected, there is no reason to get discouraged. It should serve as a motivation to try harder for next season.

Once the draft has been completed an email will be sent out to all players notifying them of their all-star status.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you!
