Hudson HBA Baseball





Team Selection

Team rosters will be finalized at the end of both evaluation sessions (typically in August) and should be posted on the HBA website shortly thereafter.



Winter Training

Indoor training begins in December and runs throughout the winter until regular season, outdoor practice can begin.  HBA is fortunate to have use of the Hudson High School Gagat and Kent State University field houses.  These sessions work on important fundamentals as well as focus on team building.  For these reasons indoor training is extremely valuable to the players and attendance is strongly encouraged.




Each player is required to participate in the HBA organization’s fall fundraiser.  The fall fundraiser is a ticket raffle, raffling off one of several prize baskets.  Each player will be required to sell ten, $10 tickets.  More information regarding the raffle will be presented at a later date.


Other fundraisers will occur throughout the season for the 12U Cooperstown teams.  To support our fellow players, attendance is encouraged at these events as well.


Spring/Summer Season

Spring practices begin in March, weather permitting and continue throughout the spring/summer season.  Games officially begin in late April and run through mid-July.  Attendance at practices and games is important to all coaches and teammates and for this reason attendance is mandatory.




HBA provides each player with his uniform (hat, jersey, pants, belt and socks).  Cleats can be purchased for an additional fee.  All first year HBA Players will be provided additional equipment such as bat bags and helmets.  Each player is responsible for their own glove, bat and other necessary equipment.
