Fall Ball

Glen Ellyn Youth Baseball Association continues to grow its Fall Baseball program. Thank you to everyone that participates and everyone who volunteers to make this a successful program.

About Fall Ball

Fall Baseball allows kids to enjoy organized baseball in the fall while they continue to develop their baseball skills.

The season will run from mid-August through late-September with an end of the season tournament.

There are three leagues divided by the following age groups: 9U (8 & 9 year olds), 11U (10 & 11 year olds) and 13U (12 & 13 year olds). The age of the player as of April 30th of the current year determines the league age.

Each league is made up of teams from both Glen Ellyn Youth Baseball and Lombard Baseball. 

Rules of play will be determined by GEYBA and Lombard Baseball. Pitching and base distances and other rules will be similar to rules that the player will be using during their next spring season.

The time commitment will involve at least one weekday practice with two week-end games. This may vary depending on weather, make up games and scheduling issues. A serious commitment of 80-90% participation in practices and games is encouraged.

Evaluations

Team parity will be achieved based on coaches evaluations of players from the spring season. 

If player was not in the spring program we will try to use input from the parent. An on-the-field evaluation may need to be scheduled to evaluate players at certain age levels. More information on team makeup will be available as the season approaches.

All players will be assigned to a team. Depending on the number of players that sign up for each league, some teams may be made up of players from Glen Ellyn and Lombard.
