Reminder: 2014 MBA Participation Survey
by posted 07/15/2014
 

Please take a moment to give us your feedback.  The survey is much shorter than in past years. 

We plan to close the survey on July 31st.

 

It was the best season ever, it was the worst season ever! 

Here's your chance to share your thoughts, opinions and ideas with the MBA board and enter to win one of 5 - $50 Gift Cards.

As most of you know, this was the first year of bringing all our Minnetonka Baseball Leagues together under ONE organization and mother nature certainly thought it should be a wet one.

We would appreciate your feedback and ideas on how we can make the baseball experience better for ALL our players.

Please CLICK HERE to take a few minutes to complete the survey, a link is also available under the Main Menu tab.

Thanks in advance for your participation.
