Fall Ball

Fall Ball Registration Now Open!

We are pleased to announce registration for our 2014 Fall Baseball and Softball season. Online registration will be open from July 28th - August 25th. PBSF's Fall Ball season runs from early September through mid-November and primarily consists of Sunday games, usually without any weekday practices. Fall Ball is a great way for experienced players to sharpen skills in a game-based format, and at the Pinto baseball/U8 softball level provides a low-key opportunity for less-experienced players to try something new. We are looking forward to a fun and spirited fall campaign.

As a reminder, participation in Fall Ball does not create priority for spring registration. Please make certain to review the specific (and sometimes unique) information for the baseball and softball registration process.

Please note: Players will not be notified about team assignments until after Labor Day. However, families should expect that the first game will be scheduled on Sunday, September 7th. Lastly, we cannot always accommodate requests to play with specific players and/or coaches.

FOR SOFTBALL

The player's age on December 31, 2014 determines the player's division for Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 seasons.

DIVISION REG FEES AGE ON 12/31/14 BIRTHDAY BETWEEN
U6 No Fall Ball 5-6 1/1/08 - 12/31/09

ASA Affiliation

ASA SoftballWe are affiliated with the Amateur Softball Association of America, an organization that governs the sport for men and women of all ages. We play games between Piedmont teams and other communities affiliated with ASA such as teams from Oakland and Alameda.

The Amateur Softball Association (ASA), a volunteer driven, not-for-profit organization based in Oklahoma City, OK, was founded in 1933 and has evolved into the strongest softball organization in the country. The growth and development of the association led the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to name the ASA the National Governing Body of Softball, pursuant to the Amateur Sports Act of 1978.

Piedmont Softball

The ASA has many important responsibilities as the national governing body of softball in the United States, including regulating competition to insure fairness and equal opportunity to the millions of player who annually play the sport.

The ASA has become one of the nation's largest and fastest growing sports organizations and now sanctions competition in every state through a network of 93 state and metro associations. The ASA has grown from a few hundred teams in the early days to over 250,000 teams today, representing a membership of more than four million.
