Welcome to Hopkins Baseball Association

Welcome to Hopkinsbaseball.com, the official communication and information link for 13U-15U players in the Hopkins Baseball Community, as well as for Senior level players for teams 16U and 17U-19U.

When they say "play ball", that is what they mean - Play hard and have fun.

HBA is forming Fall Ball teams - wait list information below

Hopkins Baseball Association (HBA) is forming Fall Ball teams  

What's Fall Ball? It's a 5-week program with doubleheaders on five consecutive Sundays (Sept. 11, 18 and 25 and Oct. 2 and 9). It's sponsored by HBA and we usually host one or two of the 5 weekends. The other weeks we're on the road playing other teams who are also signed up through Metro Baseball League. 

Cost is only $125. Teams usually practice once weekly. 

This year HBA is sponsoring teams at 15U, 14U, 13U and for the first time, 12U. The level of a player is determined by the age they expect to play baseball in the summer of 2023.

Registration closed on July 31, however if you'd like to be added to a wait-list, please email these details to HBA Volunteer Registrar Sam Black by clicking THIS link:

  • Player's name
