RULES FOR ELIGIBLE PLAYERS:

  • ALL PLAYERS MUST BE IN HIGH SCHOOL!
  • The BYBA fall ball program is not affiliated with BHS. Most of the fall ball coaching staff will be from the BHS varsity baseball staff, however it’s still not a part of the BHS sports program.  (NOTE: We encourage all students to play multiple sports in high school.  High school sports programs take priority over fall baseball.  If your athlete plans on playing a fall sport at BHS, we would recommend not play BYBA fall ball.  There are too many conflicts, and we would not want a player to get hurt during fall ball and not be able to finish their commitment to the BHS team.  Not playing fall ball will NOT hurt anyone’s chances of making the BHS baseball teams).
  • Two teams will be established, varsity & junior varsity. The coach determines placement.
