San Francisco NABA


Established in 2001, San Francisco National Adult Baseball Association (SFNABA) is the San Francisco Bay Area's premier adult (18+) wood bat baseball league. We are a 501c7 non-profit organization affiliated with the National Adult Baseball Association out of Denver, CO and host 300 members on 16 teams.

We play a 20 game regular season (plus playoffs for teams that make it) from the end of March to the last weekend of July with playoffs in August. Opening day for the 2016 season is March 18th/19th. We have all major holiday weekends off with the exception playing on either the Saturday of Mother's Day weekend or the Saturday of Easter weekend. We play four sets of double headers during the course of the season. 70% of our games take place on Sundays, 20% on Saturdays and 10% on weeknights (with plenty of notice), though each manager does have license to express his team's preference and to request not to play on certain days.

Despite our name, SFNABA's fields are mostly outside of the city proper. We do play at Paul Goode field in the Presidio but it's been our experience that the field quality is not high in SF and that our members prefer to travel to play at better facilities. All of our fields are within 25 miles of SF. Several of our teams have 'home' fields and play at least 10 of their home games at one given field. Others do not and are assigned fields based on their requests and as availability permits. Most teams have players from both sides of the bay and carpooling to games is common.

The skill level within SFNABA ranges from high intermediate to advanced, as we have many, many ex college and professional players in our mix. If you never played hard-ball at at least the High School level before, this probably isn't the league for you. The mean age of our players is somewhere between 27 and 30. We do not have divisions for specific age groups, so everyone plays together. We do create a schedule where higher seeds play tougher schedules and lower seeds play slightly softer schedules to help promote the best possible competition and parody across the league. We have a 9-person Board of Directors that serves to keep things fair and to create the best possible experience for all involved.
