SBAA Traveling Fastpitch

About Us

The SBAA Traveling Fastpitch program is intended to provide girls with an opportunity to play fastpitch softball at a competitive level, while still encouraging and focusing on player development, rather than on having a winning record.

The SBAA Traveling Fastpitch program is focused towards players who reside in the Blaine school district.  Players residing outside of Blaine school district are welcome and may also try-out for the traveling teams.

If you have an association in your area that you could be playing for, you may need to get a waiver to play for SBAA.  Contact us or your local association for details.

Sportsmanship at its FINEST!!!

Weekend of July 12-July 14

It is so great knowing that not only are our girls great players but they are great sports.  See the letter below we received regarding the Moose at the Bloomington Bash Tournament this past weekend!

In addition, its nice to know we all cheer each other on and all the girls are great role models!  The 10U Cochran team played on the same fields as the 14U Halvorson team.  It was so much fun seeing the little girls cheer on the 14U team and then the 14U girls staying around the fields to cheer the little girls. Many times during the weekend the little girls would come up and talk to the girls and were so excited when the big girls would stop and talk to them about positions and what they liked about ball.  The older girls encouraged them to continue playing ball and have fun with their friends!

By the way, each one of these teams took 2nd place in their tournaments over the weekend.  Way to go girls!


To the Entire Moose Organization

I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that I had several people comment on the great attitude of the MN Moose this past weekend.

A concession worker: “The MN Moose are soooo nice”
A field worker:  “The MN Moose coach was really nice, he even thanked me for doing the field and complimented me on it”
Umpires:  “The MN Moose are great”… one of them commented to me that he really wanted one of your hats!

I can add to that and say that I saw great sportsmanship after the final/hard fought game.  The team and coaches took the loss graciously and were very complimentary of the other team during the team handshake and showed an overall great attitude.  

I personally appreciate the handshake and thanks after a long, tiring couple weeks of tournaments.
