The new 2018-19 season begins August 1. As usual, we spent a lot of time evaluating our program and looking for ways to improve. We’re excited to announce several changes that we believe will position BPA Alabama as THE premiere baseball organization in the state!
First, we’re excited to announce the addition of Dee Black to our staff! Dee brings almost 20 years of experience putting on high quality tournaments in Alabama and the southeast. Dee’s innovative ideas will be a HUGE asset as we move into a new season. Be on the lookout for big announcements about FUN tournaments in the near future!
Second, the sanction process has been streamlined. You can now login to your BPA user account that you created this past season (or create a new account if needed) and within that account you can create your team(s), pay your sanction fee, purchase insurance, and enter your online roster. We hope this will make things much simpler.
Third, we are doing a pilot program for a Grade Exemption rule. This rule will allow up to 2 players on a team who may be a little too old by age guidelines, but are in the same grade.
