KBA Fall Ball is Back!!!

What’s that?  Now that house league is over, you can’t wait for information on KBA Fall Ball?  We get it, we had tons of fun too.

After the extraordinarily successful debut of Fall Ball last season, we have been fielding lots of questions about it.  So here are the details…


Fall Ball is going to start the week after school begins (so the first Tuesday will be the 12th).  There will be a cost of $25 and the days/times are outlined below:

  • Tuesdays from 6:00 – 7:15 (kids born in 2009, 2010)
  • Tuesdays from 7:15 – 8:30 (kids born in 2004, 2005, 2006)
  • Thursdays from 6:00 – 7:15 (kids born in 2007, 2008)
  • Thursdays from 7:15 – 8:30 (kids born in 2003, 2002, 2001)

All sessions will be at Shannon’s Corners and it will run for a minimum of four weeks and hopefully till the end of October (weather permitting).

KBA Fall Ball has been nothing short of an enormous success.  When we started it, we had no idea that the response would be so overwhelming and that the reviews would be so unbelievably positive.  We’re very happy that so many people are loving baseball.

The KBA started years and years ago, building community and giving kids the opportunity to fall in love with the game and that’s exactly what we’re seeing on the diamonds in September.  We’re seeing joy and happiness and friendships and imagination and everything we were hoping for.  It’s been awesome.

If you’ve been a part of it, you know what the KBA is all about.  So whenever you’re ready, we’re ready for you.  Just click here to register for the upcoming 2017 season.  It’s well under $100 – a price that just can’t be beat.  Why would you play anywhere else?

Here’s a peak at some of the things our kids have been doing at Fall Ball.

Queen’s Baseball at Free Fall Ball

So just when you thought the KBA Free Fall Ball couldn’t get any better…

Last night, members of the Queen’s Gaels Baseball Club came out to support the kids of KBA in developing skills and having tons of fun on the field.  The kids were thrilled to have the “pros” there (it may as well have been the Jays!!!).  This is exactly the type of partnership that the KBA is thrilled to have and we’re so impressed that the young Gaels understand the importance of giving back to the community and the game.  It was awesome to see.

A huge thanks to Gaels Coach, Jeff Skellhorne-Gross along with the Queen’s Athletic Department and Queen’s Journal Sports.  We look forward to many more sessions in the future and also to coming out and supporting your team at Megaffin this season.  The Gaels schedule can be found here.  Get out and see some great University ball!!!

215 Kids Turnout for Fall Ball

Fall may be here and arenas may be getting busier, but baseball is thriving with the Kingston Baseball Association.  We decided to offer FREE Fall Ball this year for the first time this season and we expected to have good turnout, but we didn’t expect 215 kids to show up for the first week!!!  We are thrilled that so many kids came out and had so much fun, and the general reaction from kids and parents was outstanding.  There were lots of experienced players who had a blast honing their skills and lots of first-timers who loved the gameplay and instruction from outstanding coaches.

It’s not too late for you to sign up your son/daughter.  At the KBA, we ALWAYS find a way to get kids to get out playing, building confidence and having fun!
