Below are some FAQ for the upcoming Fall season.

GBAA Baseball FAQs
1. Will you have a Fall season and will the fields be open?

Yes.  We are excited to announce that while there are plans to upgrade a portion of the park and some fields this fall, we will still have a fall league.  This will likely require some leagues shifting to other fields for practice and play.


2. What days are practice?

For Fall, Practices are typically Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Due to limited space this Fall with Field upgrades, coaches may be provided opportunities to offer optional practices on Wednesday or Saturday.

3. What days are games?

For Fall, games are Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. 

4. How many days a week will there be games or practices? 

Usually about 1-2 times per week depending on the number of teams in each league.

The Rookie league only practices once per week and typically plays 1 game per week. 


5. When are the evaluation dates, times and locations? 

The evaluation date is posted.  Times for age groups and field numbers will be posted in July. The date is subject to change based on weather. 

6. How long is the season?

Games run from September through October. 

7. When will practices start?

Once coaches select their team, practices will start immediately. This is typically the first or second week in August.


8. What should I bring to evaluations?

Please bring your glove, helmet and bat. Keep in mind that peewee, tball and rookie ages require chinstraps and facemasks on batting helmets.  


9. What bats are allowed?

Big barrel bats (big barrel = 2 5/8" diamter bat or larger) are NOT allowed in the Rookie or Tball age groups.  Bats can be either a USA or USSSA( BPF 1.15) approved bat.  NOTE:  The Peewee division of baseball is allowed to use bats with a 2 5/8” barrel or smaller.
