What does travel baseball entail? 

● Indoor winter practices from January through March in Rossford Soccer Dome (usually 1 weekend day  in January and one each weekday and weekend practice in February and March) 

● Games are mid-April through 1st or 2nd week of July 

○ Teams play in the Northwest Ohio Amateur Baseball League (NWOABL). This includes teams  into southern Michigan and as far south as Findlay. 

○ 25 to 40 games depending on number of teams in league and number of tournaments the team  plays in

○ Tournaments are normally within driving distance, but most teams have at least 1 out of town  tournament that requires overnight stays 

○ Games during the week and on weekends. This includes the possibility of playing on holiday  weekends including Memorial Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, 4th of July, etc. 

● Practices during the week and weekends that are scheduled around games. 

● The expectation of a travel player is that they are able to commit to 75% of the winter practice schedule  and 100% committed to the team schedule starting in April. The expectation is you are committing to  baseball during the baseball season. 

Player Fees 

● Cost for the season can range from $800 to $1400 depending on how many tournaments the team plays  in and what extra equipment the team requires for practice (hitting nets, tees, practice aids, etc).  Individual coaches select tournaments for each team. 

● The costs associated with the program  

○ NWOABL League Fee 

○ PABSC Fee (covers field maintenance and administrative costs) 

○ Uniforms 

○ Tournament Entry Fees (can range from $199 to $1200 per team for each tournament) 

○ Umpire Fees 

○ Winter Indoor Workout Fees 

○ Equipment Fees (Game and Practice balls, scorebooks, training equipment and aids, etc.)  

● Uniforms 

○ PABSC will determine the uniform style and adherence to the uniform will be non-negotiable.  ○ The following items consist of the uniform package (subject to change):  

■ Jersey (2 to 3 jersey tops) 

■ Pants (2 pair pants) 

■ Hat 

■ Pullover 

■ Helmet (as needed for returning travel players)

● Teams perform fundraising to offset costs. Individual teams manage their fundraising. 

● A portion of the league’s concessions income will also help offset the cost. 


● The number of teams per age group will depend on the level of talent at each age. The goal of the  teams is to be competitive in the league we play in (NWOABL). We will only field as many teams as we  determine can be competitive at that level.
