Mission Statement

 


The Harris Township Junior Baseball Softball Association (HTJBSA) emphasizes the education of baseball and softball rules, teaches the fundamentals, mental and physical development, a respect for the rules of the game, and basic ideals of sportsmanship and fair play. In all aspects, HTJBSA is committed to providing the youth of our community the very best educational, sports experience possible. It is our fundamental belief that every child with a desire to play baseball or softball be afforded that opportunity.
 

 


What’s happening at Harris Baseball Softball…

 

  1. Harris and USSSA

Harris Baseball Softball Executive Board has voted to improve our park by sanctioning with USSSA Baseball and Softball.  The main benefit for our members is no BOUNDARIES!!!  You can now play with your friends from anywhere.  We will still offer an All-Star path that would allow an All-Star team to play in a World Series held in Orlando, Florida at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. 

 

 

  1.  Rec Fees for 2016

Harris Baseball Softball Executive Board has voted to reduce Rec fee’s for the 2016 season.
