14th Ward Youth Baseball Association


What ages/programs/divisions of baseball do you offer?

Pittsburgh's 14th Ward Baseball Association offers a number of different leagues designed to enhance each player's age based experience.  All the Spring leagues are "Recreational" (no cut). Players new to the league or each division are invited to an evaluation day in mid to late February.  Player evaluations from evaluation days and previous seasons are used by the coaches to draft balanced teams.  See other parts of our website more information about our Baseball Divisions.

When does the Spring season start and end?

The start date is weather dependent. Once teams are formed, coaches try to schedule some informal practices based on field availability. Exhibition games usually start the first week in April. League playoffs begin in June and the season ends as teams are eliminated. 

Do you offer summer tournament "travel" or "all-star" teams?

Yes.  Summer tournament teams are typically formed for ages from 7U - 12U.  Teams are typically formed based on interest, ability and availability of coaches.  Players must have played in the spring season to be eligible for a summer "all-star" team.

Does my address or voting district need to be in the 14th Ward?

No. The league is open to all.

Where do you play baseball?

Most games and practices are at Frick 1 and Frick 2 which are located at the corner of Forbes and Braddock Ave. We also play at Koenig Field in Edgewood, Farmhouse Field in Highland Park, Wightman Field in Squirrel Hill, and Mazeroski Field in Oakland.

What's your Refund policy?

We understand life changes and we'll accommodate most refund requests made before April 1. However, we reserve the right to deduct from the refund any fees and expenses incurred by the league.

Can/should my kid "play up"?  

Most kids are best served by playing in their "natural" age group. Kids who are frustrated and over-matched tend to stop playing the sport. However, some kids have the ability to play with their older classmates and friends. If you think your child is ready to play at a higher level than their division assigned based on age please email [email protected] for additional information and guidance.

Is 14th Ward co-ed?  

Absolutely. Although a large majority of our players are male, we have female players participating in all age groups. 

Why is there a registration "Service Fee"?

This is a fee being charged by Sports Connect, our registration/website company, and unfortunately is out of our control.

How do I find out more that is not here?
