Bulldog Youth Baseball was established in 2010 to create a positive environment in which kids will be taught the fundamentals of baseball while learning how to become exceptional people.
Mission Statement: Bulldog Youth Baseball Association’s mission is to provide the youth of Plainview, Elgin, and Millville communities the opportunity to play baseball. Through exemplary leadership; promote the qualities of integrity, discipline, and sportsmanship while teaching, developing, and improving the basic fundamentals of baseball in a fun, learning environment.
PEM kids will play in the Winona County Little League (8U, 10U, 12U & 14U). This league has other area towns in it that we will travel to (and they will travel here). Some of them may include: Dover-Eyota, St. Charles, Chatfield, Lewiston, Altura, Rollingstone, Minnesota City, Goodview, and Ridgeway. This league sets the schedule and the nights that games are played. Typically, practices/games are held on the following nights, but there may be slight changes depending on field availability. Game times are typically around 6:30 pm. We expect the first games to be the week of May 31st and the last games the end of July.
8U - Tuesdays & Thursdays
10U - Mondays & Thursdays
12U - Wednesdays & Fridays
13U - Variable - Zumbro Valley League

Zumbro Valley Youth Baseball League Most Asked Questions
Website: Please follow www.zumbrovalleybaseball.com for updates.
Season: Our summer season normally starts around the beginning of June and goes until late July.
Game Format: One game night a week will be scheduled. Each game night consists of a double header.
Schedules: The league will schedule an opponent for each week but coaches will have the ability to confirm game schedules with the opposing team to have the most available night of the week for their game. Games can be moved around from week to week if scheduling conflicts exist on the week you are scheduled to play the opposing team. If the league schedules 8 weeks of games for your division, it is strongly encouraged to play all 8 weeks of games before the season tournament to avoid affecting the league standings.
League Rules: All league rules are posted on the website. New bat rules are on the homepage!
Home Games: The home team schedules their own field and umpires. It is a requirement to be respectful of the umpires and opposing teams. Most umpires are high school kids just trying to give back to the sport. Issue s will NOT be tolerated.
Game Results: The home team should report game scores via firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours so the results can be updated online.
League Tournaments: These are optional and not included in the registration fees for each team. League tournament info will be posted on the website.
