IMPORTANT: Evaluation Day on January 7, 2023

Evaluation Day for the 2023 PHBA season will take place on Saturday, January 7th at Pleasant Oaks Park, rain or shine. Evaluation Day is mandatory for the following players:

  • Any NEW player in PHBA registered in Pioneer or above (not needed for new players going into instructional or intermediate), OR
  • Any player (new or returning) registered in Intermediate or above interested in PLAYING UPa division.
  • You do NOT need to attend evaluations if you are a returning PHBA player from last season and playing in the league you’re automatically registered in.
  • Only registered players will be evaluated. If your player is not currently registered, please proceed through player registration on www.phba.org.

Evaluations will be divided into time blocks based on the player’s default registration status. Please show-up to Pleasant Oaks Park at the times below based on the division your player is currently registered with:

Intermediate & Pioneer: 9:00 AM – 10:15 AM

American & National: 10:15 AM – 11:30 AM

Western: 11:30 AM – 12 Noon

Players will go through a very light baseball/softball workout including some throwing, fielding, and batting. All players should dress in appropriate athletic attire (including cleats) and bring their equipment (including gloves, bat, and helmet). Equipment will be provided if you don’t have any. Your player will be given an opportunity to warm-up prior to going through evaluations.

Evaluation FAQ:

Q: I have a player registered in Pioneer that wants to play in American. What do I do?

A: Bring your player to Evaluation Day. Simply show-up between 9:00-10:15 AM.

Q: What if my player played in PHBA last season?

A: If you have a returning player that is playing in the division they were assigned by default during registration, you do NOT need to attend. You would only need to attend if your returning player was trying to play up into a higher division.

Q: What if my player didn’t play last season, but has prior PHBA experience?

A: See you at Evaluation Day. Any player that did not play last season (even if they played in prior seasons) needs to receive an evaluation.

Q: My kid hasn’t played baseball in a long time and is rusty; Will that be an issue?

A: Not a problem. Our evaluation helps us in our effort to build balanced teams and ensure no safety issues for players trying to play up into higher divisions.

If you have any questions or need additional information about your player or division, please contact your commissioner.

We look forward to seeing you then!
