2019 GBBA Post Season Baseball

 

GBBA is an organization of community baseball park’s devoted to the organization of the area-wide post-season youth baseball program for Homewood, Hoover, Mountain Brook, Trussville, Vestavia and Oak Mountain. Again this year, Shades Mountain Park will be participating in the GBBA post season for age groups 5/6u through 11/12u. This is an opportunity for extra baseball, in a more competitive environment than the rec season. Participation on a GBBA team will carry a financial commitment much greater than participation on a rec team. The financial commitment will be determined by the team coach, but could range from $150 to over $300. 

To participate in the GBBA post-season for SMP, a player must have participated in the rec season. GBBA teams will be formed for the 5/6u-8u age groups according to the board approved Team Selection Policy, which can be found on the SMP website. Our goal is to have every kid interested in playing placed on one of the teams. However, there is no guarantee of every player making a team. The number of teams from each age group will depend on the number of players interested and available coaches.

 

Player evaluations will be conducted by each age groups coaches. You should be hearing from your rec head coach and age group commissioner soon, if not already, with details about the evaluation process.  

 

Once teams are formed, GBBA teams will practice on Sundays. The post season games will begin right after the conclusion of the rec season and run through June 9.
