EBYAA’s recreational baseball program is open to players ages 5 thru 14. The 5/6, 7, & 8 year old divisions are coach pitch, while 9/10, 11/12, & 13/14 divisions are kid pitch. The age group determination cut-off date is April 30 of the current year. Participants may play up a division, but may not play down.
The baseball program is sanctioned under Dizzy Dean Baseball, Inc. Spring teams are drafted in early March (ages 5-12) and practices begin shortly thereafter. The season begins in early April and concludes in late May. Teams play a schedule of approximately 14-18 games. Games are scheduled to be played every day with the exception of Weds. & Sun. Teams typically play two or three games per week. Weekday games begin at 6:00 & 7:30 PM, while weekend games can begin as early as 9:00 AM.
EBYAA provides a shirt, cap, & socks. Players/parents are to provide a glove, helmet, bat, cleats, & pants. It is best to wait until you are contacted by the coach before purchasing pants. These items may be purchased at any local retailer. The 13/14 year old division does not begin play until mid-May after the conclusion of the middle school baseball season. You may, however, sign your child up for 13/14 year old play during our open registration beginning in late January (check our home page for exact dates & times). You may also obtain a registration form from the concession stand during the months of April & early May. This division will play approximately half of their games at East Brainerd, while the other half will be played at other parks around Hamilton County.
