All children in the PPBA program must be evaluated before being placed on a team. The evaluations are simple: players are required to field a few ground balls in the infield, shag a few fly balls in the outfield, and take some swings against a pitching machine. The evaluations don't take much time, but the time spent at the evaluation is primarily determined by when your child starts the process and how many players are in front of you. 

IMPORTANT:  Players need to bring their baseball gloves and bats, wear a baseball hat and comfortable sports clothes, and (preferably) sports cleats.

This day allows the PPBA Board of Directors to evaluate each player's baseball skills and experience to help provide for a balanced allocation of players to each team. *

Please check the calendar below for the evaluation dates and times.

We will run Evaluations like last year. Your child will be slotted for a specific time (within the defined time bracket outlined above per their age). Please arrive 10 minutes before your designated time slot to check in and ensure a smooth and efficient process. If only one specific day works for your child, please email ppbapony@gmail.com with that day, and we will do our best to accommodate. Again, specific time slot requests will not be considered, only particular days.

If you arrive late, you will be turned away and rescheduled. Please have your child warmed up and ready to perform when they arrive.


Thank you for your time, and we look forward to seeing you in January.


All the best,

PPBA Board of Directors 


The PPBA board would like every child to have the opportunity to play baseball in our league. However, due to player safety considerations and limitations on the number of players able to be placed on each team, a minimal number of players may not be placed. If your child is not placed on a team after the player draft, you will be given a full refund, less any late charge.

*In the interest of player safety, the admission of a player to the league and his or her selection to a Division is subject to the board's absolute discretion.  

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at ppbapony@gmail.com.
