OBA Fall Ball

Welcome to the 2022 Fall Ball Registration with Orinda Baseball Association!


 
OBA is an age-based and not grade-based baseball program. Players should play in the division that matches their Spring 2023 age level, regardless of grade.

Our programs (by age-based division):
 

Pinto

Pinto Clinics are for players planning to play Pinto in Spring 2023 with birthdates between May 1, 2014 - April 30, 2016. The weekly, 1-hour Clinics will be held between 10am-5pm on Saturdays or Sundays beginning September 10th and concluding October 30th. The Clinics are led by parent coaches, focusing on teaching and building fundamental baseball skills with a potential for informal scrimmages towards the end of the Fall Ball season. As soon as possible after registration ends, your child will be assigned to a specific clinic timeslot with parent coaches based on total registration, school affiliation and/ or skill level. Please specify any known conflicts and your child’s baseball experience/ skill at registration.
