UDATED: 2018 Fall Ball information

Hello all SSA baseball families,

It's that time of year again, the time to start considering SAA baseball in the Fall!  Players that take time off during the Fall play catch up at the beginning of the spring season, but not if they keep playing through October. Fall ball is a great way for your players to transition their skills and learning from the summer season through the fall and then into indoor facility training starting in mid-winter.


Fall ball is a great way to get 9 more weeks of baseball in (an additional 15-18 games), and all for a much lower registration fee than the spring leagues. Each player will also get an SAA t-shirt and hat as a uniform with the registration. The coaches are dedicated to improve the players skills during this time, while also being a bit more laid back and have fun. Below you can see the details for the league, please not the registration fees, and registration time lines.
