Fall Ball 2019

Agoura - Calabasas - Oak Park - Malibu - Westlake Village - Thousand Oaks

Registration is OPEN

Sign up early to secure your spot as APB sold out last season in many divisions. We expect record numbers to sign up, so don't be left out and register early!

Don't miss out on an opportunity for your player to build his/her baseball skills. Baseball is a game of repetition and Fall Ball is a great way to keep your player in synch and get ready for the Spring season, in a relaxed atmosphere. Fall Ball's main purpose is to focus on building skills and teaching the game in a relaxed, competitive atmosphere.. Games are played to put those skills into action but there is not a big focus on winning or standings.

Refund Policy 
The league incurs costs to process payments as well as up-front costs in advance of each season to plan for items such as uniforms, equipment, etc.  The following Refund Policy is in effect:

  • Refunds requested after the registration deadline but before the player is placed on a team will be honored at a 50% rate.  
  • No refund is available once the player has been placed on a team. No exceptions.


Check Return Policy

Any check payable to APB that is returned will incur a $25 fee. 


Notes:

  • Playing "up" in a division - If a player wants to play up a division (e.g. Pinto age but wants to play in Mustang), then the player must petition the Board to do so. Complete the "Petition to Play Up" form found under Forms/Resources.
  • Playing "down" in a division - Players are not permitted to play "down" in divisions unless there is a unique medical or physical reason. In these cases, parents must complete a "Petition to Play Up" (found under Forms/Resources), and send to Executive Board for review. Each case will be considered on its own merits.
  • Special Requests - Requests to play with friends, etc., are just that, requests. Where feasible, we will try to grant the request, but there are no guarantees whatsoever. JUST BECAUSE YOU REQUEST ANOTHER PLAYER OR COACH DOESN'T MEAN IT WILL HAPPEN. OUR GOAL IS BALANCE THE TEAMS SO THE COMPETITION IS EQUAL FOR ALL.
  • The primary email address you list on your registration will be the email address we use to contact you. Please also list the email address for anyone else (e.g. another parent or guardian) you want to receive information from the league.
  • Divisions sell out quickly, sometimes even before the registration deadline, and players are taken on a first-come-first serve basis. Registration is not complete until payment has been made. Players still pending payment or completed registrations may lose their spots if not completed before a division is full. Don't wait until the last minute to register! Players will be turned away when divisions are full.
