The coaching staff and players with UWL Baseball invite you to participate in our 10th year of successful fall baseball! We will be offering our traditional leagues for 5-6th grades, 7-8th grades, and 9-12th grades. The great success of our UWL Baseball Fall League starts with the direct interaction with our players for both instruction and game-play, while being directed by our coaching staff. Our fall league is unique in that each game-day also comes with about an hour of instruction before each game, and we put an emphasis on instruction during games.
