Welcome to the Offseason

Thank you everyone for your continued support of HBA.  Our organization had successful and relatively healthy summer and fall baseball seasons.  Big accomplishment for 2020, and we are so thankful for the opportunities we had to play competitive baseball during this crazy time.

As we look toward the future, we want to remind everyone that player development is an ongoing process.  While we hope that our baseball athletes play other sports and are active in other ways, we hope that you do not forget about baseball.  To that end, look for forthcoming announcements about winter training options that will be offered by HBA.

2020 Fall Baseball Teams formed

HBA 2020 Fall Ball teams have been formed.  Schedules won't be announced for a couple of weeks, however coaches may contact their teams about setting up practices.

We're Hiring Field Setup Crew Members

Teenagers, who are you looking to make some extra spending money?  We have just the job for you.  We need field setup crew members to set up the field prior to games.  The schedule is flexible in that you select the games you are available to do the set up.  The work is pretty simple and takes around and hour.  Daily tasks include removing tarps from fields, dragging/raking infield dirt, chalking the batters box/baselines, emptying the trash cans and light bathroom cleaning/stocking.  We also have bathroom deep cleaning shifts that pay a little extra.
