Knothole Baseball League Information

SBSA provides recreational baseball leagues for children from the age of 5 up to high school.  We play in District 4 of the Greater Cincinnati Knothole Association and face teams in SBSA, District 4 and in Greater Cincinnati. The season for all leagues typically starts around mid-March for practices - weather permitting - and the third week in April for games.  Leagues typically run through the end of June, with older teams playing into July based on tournament qualification and success.

The baseball draft occurs in mid-February so you should hear from your coach around the 1st of March with information regarding your team.  If you haven't heard anything by mid-March, please email the League Coordinator for your league as listed on the SBSA Board page.  The following is a summary chart of the different recreational leagues maintained by SBSA.  The child's age listed is as of May 1 of a particular season. You can request that your child "play up" a division, but decisions regarding "playing up" are made on a case-by-case basis in conjunction with the League Coordinator. The SBSA Board of Directors reserves the right to make final determinations.
