The NABA is organized nationally by age groups. The largest division of play is the Open Division (18 & Over). The NABA also features 25 & Over, 35 & Over, 45 & Over and 55 & Over Divisions .
Where participation levels permit, leagues are divided into two or more competitive divisions. These divisions are classified by experience level. The advanced level (AAA) typically is for players who have 3-4 years of college and/or professional experience. The intermediate level (AA) generally is for players with high school or some college experience. The recreational level (A) provides an opportunity for players whose love of the game perhaps exceeds their level of experience.
This divisional structure provides a level field for each player. Regardless of experience and ability level, the NABA seeks to foster a competitive environment that is challenging for all involved.
The NABA is a fun, family oriented baseball environment, where players, managers, and fans feel privileged and honored to still play the great game of baseball. NABA is not about signing big league contracts, but developing friends and a community of adult baseball players who feel blessed to still have the ability and opportunity to still play the game they love. It's not about being paid to play, but about the opportunity to still compete and play the game hard, and to earn a win or a championship through a combined effort of other individuals who love the game and are blessed to still be able to play. If you are one of those players, where it is more important to play for the love of the game, for friendships, and to compete for the honor of the game; then NABA is a place for you!
