There will be no dogs allowed at any of the ball fields.
There will be no scooters, skateboards, etc allowed at any of the ball fields as well. This is for the safety of everyone trying to enjoy some good baseball.
You will be required to visit our website several days prior to the tournament to learn of pool placement for assignment of playing times and fields.
MBL/MBT rules will be in play … with a few tournament modifications. These rules, as well as, maps to our fields can be found on the MBT website … www.mbl.bz.
There is a team roster that must be completed and turned-in at check-in. As with most other tournaments, birth certificates are required to be available for inspection upon demand.
Prior to the tournament, please direct any questions to Brook Dawson at 952-200-5806. During the tournament, there will be a tournament site coordinator at every site. Please check-in with the site coordinator at least one hour prior to your first game. You can check in at the location where you have your first game. They will be wearing Burnsville shirts with Black and Gold lanyards. During the tournament, all questions should be directed to your site coordinator. Brook will field questions only from the site coordinator.
The official Tournament Standings board for each age level will be located at the following fields …

Our field maintenance volunteers work very hard at getting the fields ready for play. Therefore, we respectfully ask that no pre-game warm-ups take place on the infield.
In the case of rain, please do not leave the facility until the site director gives direction. The umpire may delay the game, but the tournament staff will determine whether there will still be play or whether we are cancelling for all or part of the day. In the event of rain, whether a rain out or delay, we reserve the right to modify the tournament structure to complete as much play as possible.
We ask that coaches be flexible with requests to begin play early when possible. Site directors will request an early start when an opportunity is available. Teams should be onsite a half hour in advance in the case the game can begin early. Being flexible in this will allow the tournament to flow easier for all and minimize delays.
VERY IMPORTANT: Pitching Restrictions – please read the rule modifications for pitching restrictions!
We expect to post Sunday morning schedules on our website by 11:00 p.m. Saturday night.
Let’s Play Ball!!!
