About Us

Welcome to the Ascension Baseball Council Program

This baseball program is managed by the Ascension Baseball Council(ABC)a non-profit organization providing a recreational level experience to children interested in the sport of baseball.  Our program depends entirely on the support from willing volunteers that understand the importance of working together in a fun, professional manner that allows all of the children participating to have a great experience.  This is what makes our program a success. To play in our program, your player(s) must be 3-18 years of age on April 30th of the baseball year (August 1 - July 31).

 

Registration Fees & Concessions

All fees collected and profits earned by concession are used to fund our program. This includes but is not limited to field rental from the Ascension Parish, purchasing jerseys & caps, paying umpires, etc.  It is important to respect the rules of not bringing in any food or drinks into the park.  If you are found to have food or drinks that were not purchased from the concession stand, you will be asked to throw it away or leave the park.  Please help our league and get your food and drinks from our concession stand.

Expectations

ABC expects all spectators, especially parents, to be excellent role models for the children.  No foul language; no verbal abuse of players, coaches, or umpires; and no physical threats will be tolerated.  This grounds for immediate expulsion and banishment from the parks.  ABC officials have the authority from ABC and Ascension Parish to ban violators from the parks, and the Ascension police will be notified.  ABC expects the same respect and professionalism from its volunteers.  If an issue arises during the season, please contact the following people in this order: your Head Coach, then the Park Commissioner, then the League President.  All contact information can be found on the ABC website under the CONTACT US page.
