About Us

HAJBA, Who are We?

The Howell Area Junior Baseball Association, HAJBA, has been around for more than 60 years. We are an all-volunteer community organization.

What does this mean, you may ask?

The HAJBA board is made up of volunteers that dedicate a lot of their time to ensure that the programs we support are as successful as possible. Our board meets twice a monthly.  HAJBA organizes youth TBall, Softball and Baseball programs for kids ages 5 through 17. Annually more than 1,100 kids participate in our spring, travel, and fall programs.

We are independent and not connected to any department of the city or county. The only funding that our organization receives is through player registration fees, fundraisers, and business sponsorship. Without these funding sources, we could not offer the programs we do.

HAJBA is also a registered 501(c)3 non profit organization. In a nutshell, we are parents like you that volunteer a lot of time to ensure that the kids in our community have quality TBall, Softball, and Baseball programs to participate in.
