HBA Fall Ball nearing capacity (see update below)

HBA has started registration for Fall Ball teams to participate in local double-header Sunday  game leagues.

We will be organizing fall ball teams for players who will be playing ages 13, 14 and 15 during the 2022 season. 

HBA in the past has closed registration at an age level after we have enough players signed up to fill two teams at that age (typically 11 or 12 players per team).  HBA will create a standby list for additional players who express interest and could create a third team if there's enough demand.

**** July 28 UPDATE:  HBA has seen tremendous response to Fall Ball this season, especially for incoming 13-year-old level. As stated above, we plan to limit team sizes to ensure playing time and value for those on the teams.  As of July 28, at 9 am we have:

  • 3 full teams for 13-year-old (incoming HBA) level.  Additional registrations beyond those three teams will be put on a wait-list and refunded your money as soon as teams are formed (unless we are able to field a 4th team.)
  • 1.5 teams worth of players for 14-year-old level;  HBA could use a three or four more of those to make a second team at this level. 
  • 1 team for 15-year-old level; HBA could use 1 or 2 more players to round out that team. Beyond that, players will be put on a wait list. 
  • 1 team for 16-year-old players; HBA could use 1 or 2 more players to round out that team. Beyond that, players will be put on a wait list.

We intend to close registration Sunday Aug. 1 at NOON. We will promptly begin forming teams for the players we can accommodate (and refund fees to those we can't, based on the order of registration). Please don't delay.
