We are excited to announce our Fall 2017 Baseball and Fastpitch Softball Season Registration. Here are some important dates and information about this Fall Ball Season. We would also like to let everyone know that our plan over the next few months is to reconfigure our website under Petal Sports Association so as we add sports like softball the website will not be just about baseball. Please be patient with us through this process.

Registration must be done online please try and pay online as well to save time at tryouts, if you want to pay at tryouts you can with Cash or Charge ONLY, NO CHECKS!!. If registration is not paid in full by the End of Tryouts your registration will automatically be deleted. If you register and decided not to play please email director@petalbaseballassociation.com and let us know this will help us with the draft. 13-18 Fastpitch Softball please do not pay at time of registration this is a new age group and we want to see how many register. Once we know we have enough we will contact you for payment.

Practice will be September 11th - 16th

Games will be September 18th- October 13th. (4-5 yr olds will end October 19th) Games will be played during the week, the plan is to only use Monday, Tuesdays and Thursdays for Game, however this could change due to weather.

Cost (uniform cost is included in these prices, 4-8 yr olds will receive a Hat and Jersey, 9-18 yr olds will ONLY receive a jersey this season in the 9-18 yr olds can wear their favorite baseball hat, Fastpitch Softball will receive a jersey only, there will NOT be a uniform fitting you will be allowed to submit your jersey size and number when you register online.) we will have 2 umpires for 9-18 yr old games and 1 umpire for 6-8 yr old games. We are excited to announce that we were able to lower our registration costs in most age groups.

7-8 Yr olds $60

9-12 Yr olds $65

13-18 Yr Olds $70

Players will play in the age group they will be in for Next Spring. See registration page for age groups. We will try and have a separate age group for 6 yr olds however if we don't have enough they will play with the 4-5 yr olds if this happens 6 yr old parents will have the option to withdraw from the season with a full refund before the draft.

Coaches if you would like to coach please let Derek know at director@petalbaseballassociation.com if you did a coaching application for the Spring 2017 season you DO NOT have to do another one, if you didn't you will have to complete the application online under the register online page. We will really need to build our pool of Fastpitch Softball Coaches, you will do the same coaching application but it will allow you to choose baseball or softball during the registration process as a coach.

Bats BASEBALL the new USA Stamped bats are not available to purchase yet but will be soon. We will allow legal bats from the Spring 2017 season and the new bat for this fall season. Information on this new USA stamped bat is still coming out local sporting good stores are also getting this information. We recommend to wait before you purchase a bat until you talk with your coach once you are put on a team. The USA stamped bat will be the only legal bat come January 2018 for the 7-12 yr olds, in some cases in the 13-15 yr olds. BBCOR -3 will still be legal and all T-ball bats will still be legal.
