Bangkok Baseball Softball Association (BBSA) has organized baseball/softball play for the past 57 years in Bangkok. There are leagues for boys and girls ages 4-18. Please note registration is open from October 1st until November 10th. We must register players by Noverber 10th so we have time to hold player assessments, form teams and order player uniforms before play begins. Current fees per player are THB 3,600. Registration fees will increase to THB 4,100 on November 12th so be sure to register prior to that date.
You can make your payment at the Community Activity Office (CAO) or pay by Thai bank wire transfer. Cash, credit cards and Thai baht checks are accepted for payment at the CAO office. The CAO Office is open Monday -Friday, 7:00AM to 11:00AM and 12:00PM to 3:00PM.
Player assessments will be held on Sunday November 12th at the ISB Fields. Assessment sessions allow the coaches to create fair and balanced teams, and parents will be contacted about the specific time for their player assessment session. Assessment sessions are NOT tryouts. All players will be placed on a team.
Practices will begin during the week of November 13th with Opening Day for baseball/softball on Saturday, Nov 25th. Games are played on Saturdays with possibility of a few Friday evenings at ISB. Games will continue every weekend until the league championships the weekend of February 23-24 There will be no games during the winter break at ISB but we will continue play pickup games on Saturday, January 6th 2018.
All teams will practice once per week during the season as a weekly practice is important to skills development and to learn the fundamentals of teamwork, etc. Most practices will take place at the ISB fields on weekday evenings (Monday – Thursday). We have arranged a downtown Bangkok location for an optional weekly practice at NIST. Parents will have to pay THB 500 for the season for this practice because NIST charges for field usage. But all players should register to play even if they cannot commit to attending all weekly practice sessions.
On the registration form you will also have an opportunity to volunteer to be a coach, assistant coach or team parent. Please consider helping out with your childs team in some way. The kids really love having their parents helping out with their team and you will have a great time. No previous baseball experience is necessary.
BBSA has purchased a limited number of fielding gloves and batting gloves for players who need them. These will be sold on our assessment days on Sunday, Nov 12th. Please note that the BBSA does not provide baseball cleats. Parents who their child to have baseball cleats will need to obtain them on your own.
