"Don't ever permit the pressure to exceed the pleasure."
LEVELS OF PLAY
For Pre-K through 2nd grade we offer recreational levels of play.
Players 3rd through 8th grade participate in evaluations and are placed accordingly on competitive level teams which play within the Junior Baseball Organization (JBO).
Important information regarding upcoming bat regulation changes
In September, 2017, the JBO Board of Commissioners decided to NOT implement the new USA bat standard. JBO will continue to follow the official rule, listed below.
Beginning January 1, 2013, all baseball bats used while playing JBO will be either "BPF 1.15" or "BBCOR" certified. Umpires are required to perform a pre-game inspection of all equipment, especially bats, to ensure proper certification. Use of an illegal/altered bat shall be considered unsportsmanlike conduct and the player and head coach will be ejected from the game. Both the ejected player & coach may be subject to further disciplinary action by their District as well as the JBO Board of Commissioners.
These fine organizations make what we do possible. Please show your support to these amazing sponsors and thank them for their commitment to our organization. Interested in becoming a sponsor? If so, please contact either Brandon Huson or Jeremy Probst. ROLL TIDE!
