Fall Ball is a shortened season for players that are interested in:
- continuing their fastpitch softball experience beyond the summertime
- previewing the new age group they move into the next spring/summer season
- giving fastpitch softball a try (no experience required).
Teams will practice together for a few weeks prior to league competition. Practices are often conducted twice a week, with double-header games on Sunday afternoon (opponents and locations vary). Sunday game opponents are determined weekly, based on the results of the previous week's games; this is an effort to produce even parity between competing teams throughout the shortened season.
2016 online registration opens July 5, 2017 and runs through July 28, 2017.
League Games consist of three double-header Sundays through September 10
One double-header on Saturday, September 16
Followed by the Fall Ball State Tournament on Saturday, September 23

EP Fastpitch works with the Minnesota Softball League so that we can host games at Miller Park to provide an opportunity for our girls to play at one of the best softball parks in the state. When we are fortunate enough to host these games we have our concession stand open to provide food and beverages for the players and families as well as raising funds for all of our programs. This is extremely beneficial to our program and allows us to keep our registration fees as low as possible.
During these games at Miller Park, we ask our parents, or a designated adult of their choice (16 or older), to work a volunteer shift -- usually only three to four hours. This could involve more than one Sunday. Volunteer shifts will also be needed from all teams during qualifier and state tournaments.
