Tryouts for the 2017 season are scheduled for Saturday, January 28 from 9:00 am to approximately 2:45 pm in our Indoor Training Facility.  Exact times per age group are listed below.  "League Age" is the player's age as of 8/31/2017 if born on or after September 1, 2005... 4/30/2017 if born on August 31, 2005 or earlier.

All players, other than Instructional Division (T-Ball), are required to tryout.  Every effort must be made to have the players there at their scheduled time.   

Players should dress comfortably and wear sneakers.  We ask that each player bring their own glove, bat, and batting helmet.  We will have extras on hand, if needed.

If you absolutely are unable to make it at the scheduled time, please send an email to as soon as possible.  We will do our best to make other arrangements, but we cannot guarantee anything.

2017 Registration Information

Welcome to another season of HTRBA Little League Baseball! Registration is now open for the 2017 spring season. You can register online at any time by clicking on the button at the top of the page.    

We have scheduled three in-person registration dates: Saturday, October 22; Saturday, November 12; and Saturday, December 10. They are all 9:00 am to 12:00 noon in the HTRBA Meeting Room.

Registration is open to boys and girls ages 4 to 12 (as of 8/31/17*) who either live within the HTRBA boundaries, or attend one of the following schools: Greenwood, Klockner, Kuser, Mercerville, Morgan, OLS, or University Heights. To determine if you're eligible to play at HTRBA, click on this link Find My League and enter your home address and/or school address. This will provide you with information on the league(s) you are eligible for.  

All players registering for the first time must present a birth certificate and proof of residency or school attendance. If registering a new player on-line, please send an email to with child's date of birth, home address, and school to verify eligibility. Processing fees will not be refunded if an ineligible player regsiters on-line without first confirming via email.

Once again this season, we are offering an early discount (at least 20%) for all registrations received prior to November 1. To help us properly plan for the upcoming season, we need everyone to register as early as possible. A late fee of $45 per player will be added to all registrations for returning players received after December 31.  

Our base registration fee is now $110 per player. The fee for the Instructional Division will remain at $75 per player. We will continue to offer family discounts, with the exception of the Instructional Division.  

This season, we have decided to require a $100 work bond to ensure that all parents are completing their requirements as outlined in the Parent/Guardian Responsibilities Form. Prior to March 1, 2017, all families must submit a check for $100. We will hold the check until the end of the season. If all of the parent requirements are met, we will return the check. If the requirements are not met, we reserve the right to cash the check. To be clear, we do not want the money... we want the help! Unfortunately, in recent years, we haven't gotten the level of help with field duty and in the snack stand that we have in the past. We're not happy about having to require a work bond, but we feel we have no other choice.

Here is a chart of registration fees for the 2017 season:

  Prior to 11/1  11/1 to 12/31  After 12/31 
 Single Player 
 Two Players
 Three or more players
*Additional $45 per player for each player after three

Once again, we will have the pizza kit fundraiser early in the season. Minimum sales requirements will apply. The buyout will remain at $40 per player.

We will also have two scheduled Tag Days. The first will be in late February for ages 9 and up. The late Tag Day will be in Late May for ages 8 and under. Every player will be required to complete one hour of tagging. The buyout is $40 per player. 

Payment plans are always available. 

Every registration must be accompanied by complete payment, or an approved Promise to Pay (Payment Plan) form. Without either, the registration will not be accepted. This means that you will be expected to pay the registration fee that is in effect at the time, or a Promise to Pay form is received. Payment plans are not available for on-line registrations.

HTRBA Night at the Thunder - Thursday, June 16

Thank you to everyone who participated in HTRBA's NIght at the Thunder!  The kids were able to parade around the field and stand by one of the Thunder players duing the national anthem.  Everyone seemed to have a really good time.  Between ticket sales and the 50/50 that night, we were also able to raise over $1600 for the league!

Special thanks to Lisa Septak and Bill Scannon for organizing the event!
