Juniors is a competitive baseball division which continues to emphasize the fundamentals of the game.
Minimum playing requirements are strictly adhered. Playing time equity should be favorably balanced over competitive desires. Every player is in the batting line up at all times. Players will focus on a primary and secondary field position.
The San Anselmo Baseball Association (SABA) is an independent and entirely community-based baseball league free from the constraints and pressures other programs may face.
We welcome kids from all areas.
Practices and games are held locally in San Anselmo primarily at Memorial Park and Redhill Field.
Community spirit with a parent volunteer run snack shack, Sunday BBQ's and many SABA siblings from San Anselmo Rec Bambinos, Rookies and softball all playing on the same fields.
We emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork, best effort, and (of course) outstanding baseball fundamentals and technique.
We provide a supportive and inclusive atmosphere, and we believe SABA is unique in its player/parental/community-centric approach to the game. We want young players to love baseball, and want their parents to love watching them have fun and excel at the game.
