What is Fall Ball?

Fall Ball is focused on skill development and improvement of “baseball IQ” through drills, game situations, and small competitions.  Fall Ball is the perfect place to hone skills for returning players and a great introduction to learn the game for new players.   

 

When and where?

Fall Ball is held on Sunday afternoons at Kindley Field from September through December.  Specific dates and times depend on your child’s LEAGUE AGE, see the table below.  Please note that League Age is your player’s age as of May 1, 2019 – next Spring!

How much and how do I sign up?

Registration is $75 per player (Babe Ruth will be $50 as no shirts/hats will be provided). Please note - the administrator we use is still not allowing non-US entities to make credit card payments.  Please select "PAY BY CHECK" at checkout and use the bank transfer instructions provided on the website (Bank of Butterfield, YAO Baseball Bermuda, 20-006-060-743453-100).  It would be great if you could send a screenshot of the bank transfer to yao_baseball_bermuda@outlook.com so we can match up the registrations to the payments.  

Players will receive a hat and shirt.   We have a limited number of spaces so please register early so we can plan accordingly for coaches and supplies.

Volunteers

Fall Ball is most effective if we have multiple stations for the kids to rotate through.  Baseball knowledge is not needed, we just need people willing to feed balls into the pitching machine, throw grounders and pop ups, monitor base races, etc.  Please be in touch if you want to help.
