The BBA offers a baseball program for Blacksburg Middle School students. The purpose of the program is to ease the transition into Blacksburg High School JV Baseball. The players play on a full sized field, and at the same time of the year as the JV and Varsity players (Late Feb-May). We are part of the Central Virginia Middle School Club League. Opponents will include middle school teams from Christiansburg, Pulaski, Carroll County, Jefferson Forrest, Staunton River, Scott Memorial, Galax, Wythe, Radford, Princeton, and others.
Flyers will be posted around the Blacksburg Middle School by Coach Shockley. To sign up, please send an email to "[email protected]" to indicate your intent to tryout. Each player needs to bring completed registration form and fee to the first day of tryouts. Players cannot tryout if they do not bring the fee to the first day of tryouts. Paying the fee insures your willingness to participate. As you can imagine, it's very difficult to contact players to fill vacant spots after they have been cut.
The tryout schedule is as follows:
In the case of inclement weather, we will notify you of any schedule / location changes.
Blacksburg Baseball Association's Renovation of BHS Field- Infield replaced with Bluegrass sod, new clay pitching mound constructed, fully functional drainage system installed, and complete windscreen covering field, including personalization.
Jim Shockley, the Blacksburg High School Varsity Baseball Coach, has donated used school uniforms to the program, and provides administrative support. Home games will be played on the Blacksburg High School Baseball Field. The BBA covers the entire cost of operating the teams, through a fee charged to the players. Announcements for the program (tryouts, practices, rain outs) are handled through the school and Coach Shockley. Please be sure to listen to school announcements at the end of school of any schedule changes due to weather & etc.
