The Burnsville Junior American Legion baseball team offers a very competitive level of baseball for top-tier players that are 16 years of age or younger (16U). Players need to live in or attend a school in the Burnsville school district.
Our mission for Burnsville Junior Legion is to give our players the opportunity to develop baseball skills both physical and mental to be successful at the High School Varsity or Senior Legion levels. We teach not only individual skills but also the importance of team play and success over individual player stats. We work to teach our players sportsmanship and respect both on and off the field. We encourage well balanced community involved lives.
Our season starts in late May and runs through late July. We will play 28 to 32 games consisting of 14 to 16 league games and 3 tournaments. A typical week may consist of games and occasional practices. We will play league games during the week and tournaments on the weekends. Players are allowed to play on in-house or club teams but are expected to make Rattlers baseball their top athletic priority, making a strong commitment to fellow teammates and coaches.
