EBBA is committed to affording all children the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of baseball. No child is turned away for inability to pay. There are several organizations that assist those needing help to pay the registration fees. Please be sure to apply in January for financial aid and then note on your EBBA registration under "comments" that you have applied for funding and include your submission number.
