IMPORTANT Baseball Scheduling Information During Spring Break April 14-21: Ages 9-17 Hardball and Softball games only

The PPBA is receiving many requests to cancel games the week of April 14-22 due to the public school, Easter, and Passover holidays.  It is impossible for the PPBA to manage all these requests and there are not enough open field slots to reschedule those games to.
They are therefore doing the following:
They are assuming that the games scheduled for all divisions from Monday, April 14 through and including Saturday, April 19 will NOT be played and no umpire will attend.  These games will NOT be rescheduled. (There are no games scheduled on April 20.)

For games scheduled on Monday and Tuesday, April 21-22, it is assumed these games WILL be played, and if a team has too few players to play, they should initiate a rescheduling request through their organization. There is a procedure to follow.  (The procedure has been communicated to coaches and is posted on the Coaches Private Page in this site)
If both teams who were scheduled to play the week of April 14-19 have enough players and want to play a game, the coaches must confirm that with each other and then send an email to at least 48 hours before game time so an umpire can be scheduled to work that game.  The email must include the team names, division, day, date, time and field.

This DOES NOT APPLY to games scheduled to be played at Dewey and Dustbowl 2 field.  For games at those fields during the April 12-19 period, unless you confirm to by 9pm, Saturday, April 12 that your game will be played, that Dewey or Dustbowl field slot will be given to another league.  If you want the game to be played, be sure to include the exact day, date and time of the game in your email.

The fields will remain reserved for the teams that were scheduled to play there.  That means that those teams have the option of
1/         deciding to play a game and follow the procedure noted above,
2/         go to the field and have a pickup scrimmage game or practice, or
3/         not go to the field at all.
These cancellations will not count as forfeits for the purpose of determining qualification for the season-ending tournament except in the case where teams have informed us they want to play game and then do not appear.

Thank you for your cooperation. Enjoy the holidays!

  • A search box that accesses the text on every page and in every PDF
  • Many more pictures and videos
  • More complete explanations of our programs in each About page
  • An easy to access and understand FAQ page
  • A simple contact form for emailing us

  • Easy access to the website from PCs, Macs, tablets, and mobile devices
