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.

Leagues divided by the following age groups: 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd/4th Grade, 5th/6th Grade & 7th/8th Grade. 

Rules of play will be determined by GEYBA. 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. 


Field Locations

Games in Glen Ellyn will be played at Village Green Park
