“The greatest of all, the game which seems to breathe the restless spirit of American life, that calls for quick action and quicker thinking, that seems characteristic of a great nation itself, is baseball.”

Softball To Change Leagues For 2015!
The MJAA Softball teams will be making a move to the Lancaster County Girls Fastpitch Softball League for 2015. The girls tested the league this Fall, with good success, and the MJAA coaches see more opportunities for the future. Come join a team for our inaugural season in the new league!
MJAA Softball is getting a brand new ball field!
We are excited to announce that we are working with Mount Joy Borough to build a new softball field that we hope will be ready for the 2015 season! The new field will be located in the upper portion of Grandview Park, diagonal from the current field. This will not only allow the softball teams more locations to play, but will provide a multi-field site to host tournaments, as well. Come be a part of the growth of softball with the MJAA this Spring!
MJAA Pee Wees Make Bold Move To The 'NEXT LEVEL'
Starting in Spring of 2015, the Mount Joy Athletic Association 'Pee Wees' will start a new chapter in our rich history, as we join the Lancaster County Youth Baseball (LANCO) League! This move will provide our 10u and 8u baseball players with not only more practice and training time, but will also bring stronger competition. Coming off of a season of dominance in the Donegal PeeWee League, where 5 of our 6 teams finished in the top three of each age group, we are taking our boys to the next level. Our coaching staff is looking forward to getting our boys more prepared for the challenges of moving to 12u and beyond. We are excited for the changes coming in 2015...come be a part of it!

and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time.”
