What is Select Baseball?

Select baseball is a competitive hybrid baseball program that provides the competitiveness and development of Rep with the additional playing opportunities and practice of house league.  It is a program endorsed and supported by both LDBA and Ontario Baseball.

How is Select baseball like Rep baseball?

Select teams - players must try-out for them and earn their spot as with Rep teams. They wear a different uniform than our Thamesford Fury teams and represent Thamesford and LDBA playing travel baseball.

Just like Rep teams, Select teams:

  • Hold regular team practices and spring workouts
  • Play in a competitive travel league against other Select teams within LDBA
  • Participate in tournaments
  • Vie for OBA Championships
  • Have dedicated coaches with the same core certifications as Rep coaches

How is Select Baseball different?

To further player development, Select players also participate in House League, playing 2 extra games per week in addition to their Select team responsibilities.  This extra playing time is part of how Select players get more development opportunities and also allows them to bring what they learn to help elevate their house league peers in turn.

While house league games are played on weeknights, Select League games typically are played on weekends.

Select teams are typically made up of 2 age groups; The 11U Select team is made up of 10U and 11U players and U13 Select team is made up of U12 and U13 players.

11U and up will be using pitchers and pitch counting for all ages according to the OBA Select Loop rules.
