A note from the President and Commissioner:
Hi Everyone! To those of you returning to the organization, I am sure you are looking forward to another action-packed, fun-filled season of baseball and/or softball! For those of you who may be new to the organization or who are interested in joining, the purpose of this quick message is to share some information regarding the most commonly asked questions each season.
Pre-T and T-Ball (3-4 & 5-6 Years Old)
- Your coach will contact you sometime in the first week or two of March.
- There will be two (2), 1 hour practices per week from the last week in March 27th till April 23rd +/-. All practices will be at Cook School in Bridgeville and your coach will provide the days/times.
- The eight (8) game season begins at the end of April and runs through mid-June. Games will be on Saturdays at Chartiers Park between 9:00am–2:00pm. Games are usually 1 to 1-1/2 hours long.
- Master schedules will be posted in the concession stand and on our website in the first week of March. Your Coach may also provide a schedule tailored for your team.
- Rain Outs on Saturday will be made up on the following Sunday in the afternoon.
- Should the weekend be a complete rain out, Coaches are encouraged to arrange make-up games (at their discretion and based on field availability). Make-up games may be an evening during the week.
- Uniforms, bats, and helmets are furnished. Gloves and spikes (shoes) are not.
- Every player receives a trophy at the end of the last game of the season.
Baseball and Softball (7-14 Years Old)
- All players must attend an evaluation session in early March at Bianco’s School of Baseball. Teams will be drafted based on that evaluation and Coaches will contact players over the next several days.
- Teams will have two (2), 1-1/2 hour practices per week from the last week in March 27th till April 23rd +/- at Chartiers Park. Weekday practices will be from 5:00–6:30pm or 6:30–8:00pm and weekend practices will be 2 hours in length between 10:00am–8:00pm.
- The season starts late-April and will include 14 to 18 games, depending on the age group and division. Approximately half of those games will be played at Chartiers Park. The remaining games will be played in neighboring communities. Rain Outs must be rescheduled and played.
- If your child is not available for a game, PLEASE inform your Coach immediately. Teams must field a minimum number of players or the game will be deemed a forfeit. If you provide your Coach with an advanced warning, a substitute player can be called-up from a lower division.
- A parent or guardian must be at the ball field at all times while your child is practicing or The coaches in this organization are volunteers, not a sitting service - nor are they trained by the BAA in first aid. Injuries, although rare, do occur and when they do, your child does not want their Coach - they want their loved one.
- Each family is responsible for completing at two (2), 2 hour shifts in the concession stand during the regular season. For every player after the first, one (1) additional shift is required. Shifts are scheduled online at our website and may be during any scheduled game. Rain outs must be made up.
- The information above is provided as a guideline only, subject to change based on variables such as weather, field availability, no play dates, and the other baseball/softball associations we play among.
Have a great season and “Keep Your Eye on the Ball!”
-- Tim Efthimiades, BAA President
