What Division should my child play?
OBA is a Pony baseball league. Pony uses an age-based, rather than a grade-based baseball selection criterion for divisions. OBA uses April 30th as the cutoff date for each year, so a child's each on April 30th of the season determines their effective age. Players should play in the division that matches their age level regardless of grade.

What defines a returning OBA family?
A child who played OBA baseball in Spring 2018.
If we miss the priority registration period, is my returning OBA player still guaranteed a spot?
No. Only players who register during the priority registration period are guaranteed a space. We encourage players to register after the priority registration period, but we do not guarantee that spaces are available and assign those spaces on a first come, first served basis.
Why does OBA require 75+% commitment level for practices and games?
OBA is a committed baseball experience for those that want to develop and improve their skills. The players, managers, coaches and parents expect OBA to offer a strong and competitive experience and this is accomplished through the commitments of all parties.
What is the Mustang commitment level?
The Mustang commitment level is much greater than that at the Pinto level.

Can my child play up to the division above his age group?
Occasionally OBA receives requests for players to play in a division above their age group. OBA will make VERY RARE exceptions for players in the Bronco and Pony divisions who wish to ‘play up’ a division if they demonstrate advanced skills and that doing so does not significantly impact the OBA experience for others.
Can my child play in the division below his age group?
OBA cannot accommodate players wishing to play down a division.
As the shirt says, "Baseball is life. The rest is just details." Well, here are some baseball details on getting your child involved with OBA! Start by determining your player’s League Age. This is their chronological age on April 30. For example, if a player turns 10 on April 20, he would be considered league age 10, since he is 10 on April 30. If he turns 10 on May 15, he would be considered league age 9, since he is 9 on April 30. Then look in the table below in the row labeled “Age on April 30” to find the correct division.
