Girls Fall Softball Registration Now Open

Posted by Len Gilbert on August 23, 2012

Baseball has had a fall ball program for years. Now it’s time for the girls to get a chance! click to register

PBSF and OGSL are sponsoring a fall ball program. The games are typically Sunday afternoons with no practices. This means if you play fall soccer or volleyball, game conflicts are minimized. Fall ball is fun and low-key and it’s a great way to get used to a new size ball and pitching distance if you are moving up, or to get more experience before the spring season.


Online registration is open now until September 3rd.

This year, for the first time, PBSF will be offering Fall Softball.  The season runs from mid-September through mid-November and will consist of Sunday games without any weekday practices.  The player’s age on December 31, 2012 determines the player’s division for Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 seasons. All players must register in their age-appropriate division.

Division      Reg Fees    Age on 12/31/12    Player’s Birthday is between:

U6               $50                5-6                        1/1/06-12/31/07

U8               $50                7-8                        1/1/04-12/31/05
