The Middleton Baseball and Softball Commission (MBSC) Summer High School Baseball Program is a competitive program for players of ages 15-18 that is primarily for players who played on a Middleton High School (MHS) team during the previous spring season. This program usually has at least one Senior level team and at least one Junior level team. The program will also offer a Senior travel team if player numbers and commitment are sufficient.
Senior level teams are usually comprised of mostly juniors and sophomores from the previous high school season (ages 16-18). Junior level teams normally are comprised of mostly freshmen from the previous high school season (ages 15-16).
Team composition and the number of total teams may vary depending on registration numbers and commitment of players and coaches. Graduated MHS seniors normally do not play in this program, but may be invited to participate on a Senior team by the league director if needed based if more players are needed to fill out a Senior team roster.
Senior and Junior level teams will schedule weekday games predominately against other high school age teams in the Madison metro area, under the direction of the Capital Lakes Baseball League scheduling group. Teams may also decide to schedule weekday games independent of the Capital Lakes affiliation.
MBSC teams in this program may also play games in selected weekend tournaments. The number and type of weekend tournaments entered will be decided by the league director, with input from summer team coaches and MHS baseball coaches.
The Senior travel team and the Junior team will also have the chance to participate in an age appropriate American Legion baseball qualifying tournament at the end of the regular season. The decision to participate in the American Legion tournament will be made by the league director.
This is a competitive program and requires a major commitment by players in order to participate. It is recommended that players have a major commitment to the MBSC Summer High School baseball team over other summer baseball options.
