About Us

Our Vision

To provide fun, safe, consistent, age appropriate development of players, which progressively prepares them to advance to the next level of competition. 

History

We began as the Ephrata Area Little League® in 2002.  In  2007 our organization  incorporated  to become the Ephrata Baseball Association, a nonprofit organization. 

Organizational Structure

The Ephrata Baseball Association is a comprehensive K-12 grade consolidated youth sports organization serving the youth of Ephrata and surrounding  areas. Over 100 volunteers provide approximately 400 youth ages 5 to 19 every year the opportunity to enhance their baseball skills and play a more competitive level of baseball, while also learning management skills and life lessons.    We work closely with the Ephrata Mounts HS staff to prepare our younger players for participation in the high school baseball program, as well as offering opportunities for continued development throughout each player's high school career.  We have teams in 2 programs,  In-house Little League® and EPBA. 

In-house Little League®

Our 5-10 years olds have several levels of play to learn and have in baseball for the spring season.   5-6 year olds have Tee Ball; 6-8 years have A (Coach Pitch) teams, and 8-10 have AA (Kid Pitch).   

Ephrata Premier Baseball Association (EPBA)

The EPBA equips EBA travel teams from the 10U Jr. Midget-Midget level through the 19U American Legion program for on-field competition. We have teams in 3 different leagues, LCYBL for 10U,12U, and 14U, Lancaster Country Midget Baseball for 16U, and American Legion for 19U.

Fields & Facilities

EBA plays on public and school  fields in the surrounding community. We thank the following boroughs, townships, and organizations that have developed relationships with us which enable  us to share in the use and maintenance of these fields.  For directions, click here.

For the past several years we have been enjoying the indoor facility called "EBA Academy" at 300 W. Chestnut Street in Ephrata.  This facility is provided by a single donor with the primary objective of enabling high school players to improve their skills year round.  When its available and there are qualified volunteers, the EBA is allowed to use it for 9-13 year olds.   As long as the facility remains available and we have the volunteers, the EBA will continue to look for opportunities to improve the baseball skills of all players and equip parents with the knowledge to reinforce at home. 

EBA Board of Directors and Management Team

The EBA Board of Directors are responsible for the day-to-day operations of this fully-consolidated and comprehensive youth baseball organization. Their main duty is to ensure that the participants of this K-12 program are learning the game of baseball in a fun and safe environment. Each member is a volunteer and is carefully appointed to their position by a selection committee that reviews level of availability, interest, and commitment to the objectives of the organization. 

The EBA Board meet monthly at the EBA Academy which is located at 300 W. Chestnut St., Ephrata. The entrance is located via the tractor trailer port on the Park Ave. side of the building (look for the EBA sign).
