FRANKFORT BASEBALL
SPRING REGISTRATION
IS NOW OPEN FOR 2020!
Welcome to Frankfort Baseball!

Below is a brief description of the different divisions we offer within Frankfort Baseball. Frankfort Baseball offers a baseball program designed to provide the opportunity for our players to build their skills in a fun, relaxed environment.  Generally, practices begin in April and games begin in May and end by July 1st. Teams are assigned in March. Managers will contact players when practices begin in early spring. Frankfort Baseball provides a hat, jersey and socks to players in Shetland, I6, I7, Pinto, Mustang and Bronco leagues. Players are responsible for baseball pants and cleats.  Please wait until you are assigned a team before purchasing your pants.  

For the 2019 and 2020 seasons, Frankfort Baseball has added a $50 Capital Fund Fee. This fee was established for the future safety of our players, coaches, and spectators at our Ball fields. These additional funds will be used strictly to refurbish all dugouts ,replace fencing and netting at our Main Park fields. We will be communicating the entire plan in future emails to all Frankfort Baseball Families.

As in the past, fees must be paid via credit card at the time of registration. Our website lists all the fees. Save money now and register before the holiday bills pile up! Payment for registration fees and refundable volunteer fee are required at time of registration. If payment is not made at the time of registration, the registration is automatically deleted.


Below is a brief description of the different divisions we offer within Frankfort Baseball. If you have any questions or for any "play up" requests, please send an email to Brad Baker, Player Personnel Director at

Thank you!

Thank you very much to the following companies, who literally bailed us out during the Spring Classic Tournament! We literally were up to our knees in water and water is their specialty!   Without their help, we would not have been able to continue with the tournament. If you have any needs at home or work, we highly recommend them!

Congratulations to the Champions and Thank you for all of the teams and families for your patience as Mother Nature tried to wash us out but with no success.  So many people to thank from the army Volunteers and Parents that assisted and supported the program during the past 5 days of the 2019 Spring Classic. The weather was not kind to us this year, but with every challenge we had to overcome there were the people who were there to make sure the tournament didn’t get cancelled.

Tournament schedule, scores and standings!
