2017 Fall Ball League

Thank you for another successful  Fall Ball Season for 2016

Thank you to all who participated in Fall Ball this season.

  • We had 530 teams participating.  
  • Scheduled over 2250 league games.
  • Played at over 32 sites each weekend
  • Used an average of 130 umpires each weekend 
  • Conducted 34 Fall State tournaments and 750 games were played.

Obviously it takes a lot of coordination and effort by many people.  

Have a great off season!


2017 Minnesota Softball Fall Dates

The meeting dates and important dates for Minnesota Fall Ball are listed below. We annually host in excess of 500 teams from throughout Minnesota at dozens of sites (34) every weekend in the Fall. It is a great way for next year's teams to get ready for 2018 play or for 2017 teams to wind down.

Most games are played on Sunday's so as not to interfere with scholastic activities like volleyball and soccer. We develop athletes. Play as many sports as you can for as long as you can!

If you have any questions about Fall Ball, please contact Dan Pfeffer at dan@usasoftballmn.org or Tom Bye at tbye@usasoftballmn.org.
