Fall Ball is Here!
First, the Naperville Baseball Association (NBA) had a tremendous Spring/Summer 2021 season! Coming off of COVID-19 restrictions over the past year, it was exciting and rewarding for us to see players back on the field, competing and having fun! Some highlights:
- Our four teams played in the community league with teams from Wheaton, Winfield, Lombard and Wheatland.
- One of our Naperville teams played in the Championship Game.
- Our all star team represented the NBA in the Carol Stream All-Star tournament and showed their true potential in beating the undefeated team from Marengo.
- Our season was a resounding success highlighted by tremendous end of season tournaments for the two divisions; The championship games came down to the last inning before the winner was decided!
- Our teams exhibited the same passion and love of game that we saw in Junior League and the feedback to our board was overwhelmingly positive
- Thanks to all the NBA players, families, coaches and fellow volunteers for your continued support of the NBA program
Now, our Fall Ball season is upon us and will begin soon. The model of NBA Fall Ball is to provide a combined instructional component along with live game scrimmage as a continuum for Winter training and Spring/Summer 2022 season. Our instructors are The Baseball Sweatshop comprised of local high school and college coaches and players that exemplify a sound fundamental approach that connects with the players for an exciting and fun program. Our 2-hour sessions will be held on Sundays for a six-week period from September 5 through October 10, or later to accommodate any weather-related suspensions. We plan to divide the season into two levels as follows:
- Junior League incoming 6th, 7th and 8th graders: Our goal is to sustain the Junior League players with building blocks for continued play in our Junior League
- Senior League incoming Freshman through Seniors: Our primary interest is to formulate the core group of incoming freshman and sophomores as mentors to one another and acclimate them to the 90' fields for continuation into our Senior League. Additionally, if your response is significant, we can modify the sessions to include more emphasis on live game scrimmage
Registration fee for both programs is $200.
