Howell Area Junior Baseball Association (HAJBA) Fall-Ball 2017 Program 


Fall Practice and Game Schedules

are now posted 

Under the Download tab


The Howell Area Junior Baseball Association is proud to announce that we will be offering our 17th Consecutive season of Fall Baseball.  

Last season, we had 270 kids participate in our Fall Baseball program.

We are also offering Softball teams this season. (Assuming enough girls sign up)

Fall-Ball is intended to be fun and instructional, preparing kids for the 2017 Spring/Summer baseball season.

It is a great way for your child to develop and become a better baseball/softball player. 

Games will be played, but standings will not be kept and only 1 umpire per field will be provided.

Registration is closed

2017 spring season poll

With the 2016 season completed, we would like to now take the time to survey our baseball/softball families on how they would like to see the 2017 calendar to look like.  We have only offered two options, both would start the regular season around May 1 as we usually do, with the difference being having playoffs completed before or after July 4.  Before you vote, let us explain what could occur with each scenario.


By choosing a season to be completed with playoffs BEFORE July 4, we would schedule playoff games to start the day after the regular season is over.  It would require us to play over Balloon Fest weekend (as we did this year), but would allow for a 'longer' summer for vacations.

By choosing a season to be completed with playoffs AFTER July 4, teams would have about a week or so off for rest and practices before playoffs would start and would be completed by July 13 or so.


The league itself is neutral on the topic as we exist to serve the community.
