The HPBA Travel Baseball Program is typically represented by a Purple/White Team and a Grey Team at various age levels. The Purple/White Team, commonly referred to as the Part-Time Travel Team, will participate in the Northside 5 Travel Baseball League (or comparable), will play in 2-3 travel tournaments and all players MUST play House Baseball at Hamlin Park as their top priority. The Grey Team, commonly referred to as the Full-Time Travel Team, will participate in a local TBD travel league (MSBL or comparable), will play in 4-6 travel tournaments and players may optionally elect to play House Baseball at Hamlin Park. More details will be announced soon but please take these thoughts into consideration when selecting your interests in trying out for a team.
For 2017, HPBA will host travel softball teams at the 13U, 11U and 10U age groups. Like baseball, these teams will be considered Purple Teams or Part-Time Travel Teams.
