Please note that it is our goal by the Spring 2020 season is to have all teams be named "Ephrata".  The "Mounts" name will be reserved for the high school team and all other names (Merlins, Dragons, etc) will be retired.  Teams will be referred to Ephrata 12U S1 or Ephrata 14U Section 3.    In house teams will be referred to Ephrata Purple or Ephrata Black, etc.  This will save on uniform costs as well as the complexity of ordering.

Hello everyone! 

This Saturday 12/9 and next Saturday 12/16, we will be have an EBA Merchandise sale, Spring uniform sizing, and in-person registration. Come see us EBA Academy at 300 Chestnut Street Ephrata from 9-12 pm on either Saturday!

We have lots of vintage and recent EBA gear for sale at must-go prices! Great opportunity for Christmas presents.
Not sure what size to order during registration? We'll have some pants and hats for you to gage what size to order. We always recommend going up a size when its questionable. Even if you've already registered, we can still make changes.
Want to register in person? I'll have paper forms for you to complete. Checks can be made out to EBA. Or register online at http://ephratabaseball.org/spring-programs 10U and 12U evaluations are on 12/9 and 12/16 (you'll choose during registration) so please register before your evaluation date.

For 2018, all teams in the EBA will be able to use bats that comply with 2017 rules and 2018 new rules.  In other words, if the bat you used last year was on the 2017 list of approved bats, you can still use that bat.  You can also use a bat that is on the approved list for 2018. 

Here is some more information about the recent change.  LCYBL has approved use of 2017 standards for 12U and 10U. LL approved the 2017 standards for Teeball and Coach Pitch. The EBA has approved the 2017 standard for Kid pitch therefore enabling all teams have the same rules in 2018 as we did in 2017.  However, the rules for 2019 are unknown.

Before purchasing a new bat, we recommend reading more about it at the link below.
