Returning families just need to login and register for the upcoming season. Once you have an account you will be included on all league communications. Financial aid is available to those who qualify. Please email us to inquire.

EVALUATIONS
Early in March, FBBSB holds a very low key day of evaluations to help coaches draft teams that are evenly matched. You will receive an email noting what day and time your player is to attend. Coaches run simple stations of fielding and batting to note a child’s experience.

TEAM PLACEMENT
Coaches and teams are put together during the month of March. Once finalized, coaches are sent a roster with player information. Coaches will then contact families to introduce themselves, establish communication processes and schedule practices. Practices typically begin mid-April. Once finalized, the game schedule will be distributed by coaches and available online.

OPENING DAY
FBBSB officially begins our season with the annual Opening Day Parade. Starting at Parker Junior High, players walk with their team along Flossmoor Road to Bronco Field where we hold a short ceremony. 

FBBSB BOARD
Our leadership consists of an Executive Board, League Commissioners and Committee Chairs. Board meetings are open to the public and held on the third Wednesday of the month (usually August through April) at Flossmoor Station at 8 pm. Interested in volunteering on the board? Email us today to learn of open positions.
