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 themselves don’t take much time, but the time spent at the evaluation is determined largely 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 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.

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.
If you have any questions, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
