UAMBA offers Cal Ripken affiliated youth baseball for ages 5-12 and Mechanicsburg Area Teeners Baseball for ages 13-17. The UABA program (ages 5-12) is structured as follows:
Junior Pony – 5 and 6 year olds (tee ball/pitching machine. No scores or standings.)
Senior Pony – 7 and 8 year olds (pitching machine/kid pitch on 41/60 size field. Scores but no standings; There is a season end tournament.)
Minors – 9 and 10 year olds (kid pitch on 46/60 size field. Scores, standings and includes games against other local organizations; playoffs and a league champion is crowned.)
Majors – 11 and 12 year olds (kid pitch on 50/70 size field. Scores, standings and includes games against other local organizations. Playoffs and a league champion is crowned.)
Requests for a child to play at a level above or below their recommended age group will be addressed confidentially and on an individual “case by case” basis. The managers, coaches and league coordinator will collectively evaluate and determine if it is in the best interest of the child to play at a level above or below his age group.
After the regular season, UAMBA enters all star teams to compete against other organizations in the Cal Ripken National Tournament and other local all star tournaments. Our all star teams are among the most successful in the area capturing numerous tournament championships, Ripken District Championships and Ripken PA. State Championships. There are separate teams for each age level from ages 7 to 12.
